In eighth grade, Anthony Davis stood 6-feet tall and was known as "the little guy who shot corner 3's."

"AD" attended a small charter high school (Perspectives) in Chicago.

I guess we will find out. Definition of a great player is that he makes everyone around him better. If he adds 6-8;points to Lebron’s average-then I agree. There are some pretty good arguments that there at least 5 better players who are healthy.

Now, I read Lebron will be playing a lot of point guard as opposed to point forward. There is probably an offense that can be invented for Lebrun and AD. Frank Vogel could put AD on a block. Ok, sledgehammer - right up the gut left or right - lob to AD if his man helps? If the shooting guard defender helps - there is a kick for a shot?

There going to be a big problem to stop on the defensive end.

One of the greatest "slop" players EVER

I don't think they ever ran a play for him yet when the game was over he had 25/8/3

Never ran a play for him?

As I recall, all four teammates cleared out and Dantley backed down his opponent in the low post with countless dribbles and a turnaround jumper.

I'll check out some YouTube highlights to verify.

Adrian Dantley had unbelievable footwork.

He also pioneered the one-foot fadeaway jumper that most of today's analysts wrongly credit Dirk Nowitzki for introducing to the game.

He's been extremely difficult to classify for years because he has so much help. He's the Nerds best player but they seem to play worse when he's in and Steph is out as opposed to the other way around.
He is a 1 way player, team defense and ball movement both better with him ouy
