Anthony Davis Fixed His Biggest Weakness, And It’s A Terrifying Sign For The Rest Of The NBA

Anthony Davis

When Anthony Davis came into the NBA, he was already touted as an elite big man who could rebound, block shots, and finish around the rim on pick-and-rolls.

His big question was whether he could develop a well-rounded offensive game.

His primary weakness was that he was reliant on other players to create offense — he needed to be set up for easy baskets where he could use his athleticism and length to finish over defenders. To realize his potential as a superstar big man, Davis would need to improve his ability to spread the floor and create shots for himself.

Scouting reports before the draft noted as much. Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress wrote an excellent report on Davis before the 2012 NBA Draft:

… Davis is still a fairly raw prospect in many facets offensively, giving him a considerable amount of room for growth as he continues to develop. If an opposing defense can force him to take a jump-shot, put the ball on the floor, or attempt to score in a post up situation, they have a more than three times better chance of stopping him than if he simply catches the ball in the paint in position to finish.

… The truth is he rarely dribbles or takes a shot outside five feet, and isn’t overly successful at the moment when he does.

Davis attempts just over one jump shot per game on average, but has only made 27% of his attempts. His shooting mechanics are not bad… but this is a part of his game he’ll need to continue working on in time.

Davis’ offensive growth in his first two seasons was steady. But this year, he has became one of the league’s best offensive players, and he’s done it by developing a midrange shot and improving off the dribble — essentially fixing his two main weaknesses from 2012.

Davis is averaging 25.7 points on 57.9% shooting on the year, both of which are career-highs. 

The chart below looks at Davis’ growth shooting from 16-24 feet and the general "midrange" zone over the course of his three-year career:

Year

16-24 feet

Midrange

2012-13

26%

29.4%

2013-14

36.8%

40.1%

2014-15

43.8%

43.1%

 

Davis’ 43.1% shooting from midrange is seventh best among forwards who have taken at least 40 shots from that area, and fourth best among forwards who have taken at least 50 shots (Davis has taken 54).

Monday night, Davis led the Pelicans in scoring with 31 points on 14-20 shooting. His new arsenal of offensive moves was in full display, despite the Pelicans losing the game.

His midrange jumper was in effect on spot-up opportunities:

He was hitting jumpers that he created by himself:

And he also showed off the ability to hit hook shots in the post, another early weakness:

Davis’ breakout season has him as an early contender for MVP. If he can single-handedly will the Pelicans into the playoffs, his emergence as a superstar may make him the runaway favorite.

Dave Chappelle Tells GQ He Wants To Return To Television

Dave-Chappelle-GQ-Man-Of-The-Year

One of the greatest comedic minds of all-time made a triumphant return to the public eye in 2014, and now he’s being honored with one of media’s biggest distinctions. As we reported yesterday, Dave Chappelle snagged the cover of GQ’s annual "Men Of The Year" cover.

 

After sporadic appearances in hole-in-the-wall comedy clubs since he abruptly left the wildly successful cult-classic sketch comedy, Chappelle’s Show, Dave returned to the bright lights by performing ten sold out shows in Radio City Music Hall.

“I have a show-business bucket list. There’s just certain things that every entertainer always dreamed of doing. When I was 19, I used to walk up Sixth Avenue and look at the marquee of Radio City. I’d see the lines outside. I’d be like ‘Man, I just want to…Radio City!’…It just so happened the venue was open during the same time frame I was willing to play.”

Chappelle also shares a few of the other things on that “bucket list,” including a return to TV. “For one year, I want to do this thing where I guest-star on as many television shows as I possibly can,” he explains. “I’d be a zombie on The Walking Dead. A corpse on CSI. I’d be the first black guy to f**k Olivia Pope on Scandal…”

ESPN Announces New “30 for 30″ Documentary: “I Hate Christian Laettner”

ap_march_madness_best_moments_basketball_54636649

Many college basketball fans have a deep rooted hate for the Duke Blue Devils. As one of those people who despise the Dukies and all they stand for, many people can point to one pivotal moment to where the hate begins. Nearly 23 years since Duke’s Christian Laettner sunk one of the famous shots in NCAA Tournament history, advancing the Blue Devils to the 1992 Final Four with a game-winner in overtime over Kentucky.

Before that shot, and especially afterwards, Laettner was one of the most despised players in all of basketball. In 2015, ESPN will continue their incredible 30 For 30 series with a documentary titled "I Hate Christian Laettner." Rory Karpf, who directed "The Book of Manning," and "Tim Richmond: To The Limit," will direct the film which is set to premiere on Sunday, March 15th at 9PM on ESPN.

Via ESPN:

He made perhaps the most dramatic shot in the history of the NCAA basketball tournament. He’s the only player to start in four consecutive Final Fours, and was instrumental in Duke winning two national championships. He had looks, smarts and game. So why has Christian Laettner been disliked so intensely by so many for so long? Maybe it was the time he stomped on the chest of a downed player, or the battles he had with his teammates, or a perceived sense of entitlement. But sometimes, perception isn’t reality.

“I Hate Christian Laettner” will go beyond the polarizing persona to reveal the complete story behind this lightning rod of college basketball. Featuring extensive access to Laettner, previously unseen footage and perspectives from all sides, this film will be a “gloves-off” examination of the man who has been seen by many as the “Blue Devil Himself.”

The film will hit television screens right on time for the NCAA Tournament and March Madness. Check out all the info on the film right here.

Next year the Air Max 90 will celebrate its 25th anniversary. In honor of the milestone, Nike Sportswear will be rolling out a new version of the runner in the form of a "Cork" version, as well as bringing back one of the shoe’s most iconic iterations.

With the colorway as popular as ever, the Nike Air Max 90 "Infrared" is officially slated for a re-release in 2015. The Nike runner has not been released in the the classic colorway since 2010, so the anticipation will be high for the return of the coveted AM 90 sneaker.

In 2014, the "Infrared" colorway has seen stellar execution via kicks like the Air Trainer 1 Mid.
