There are going to be a lot of people who will say are you kidding me? There is no way Anthony Davis had trouble making the decision to leave UK. He is going to be the first player picked in the NBA draft and no one will be surprised if he makes 10 million next year.
"Tough," says the former UK star. "Yeah, it was tough. Actually decided last night. My mom and dad were arguing. I was just sitting back and laughing like this is crazy. I never thought I'd get to this point. My mom wanted me to stay in school my dad was like let's stop, let's be serious for a second, did you not see what he did in college?"
Anthony Davis is one of the great shot blockers in the history of college basketball. What's crazy is not only do some think Nerlens Noel, next years starting center is a better rejector, but Davis agrees with the opinion.
"I think he is. I can't block with my left hand like he blocks. He can block with either hand. I kind of tip it with my left. The only difference is he likes to throw it to the crowd and I like to keep it in play. I'm pretty sure they will change that here though."
The bond that this team has is special. That bond was a big reason why UK won the NCAA Championship.
"We all loved each other and had each others back," says Davis. " That's one thing I'm going to miss."
Davis loves school and plans on getting his degree.
He is also one of the greatest role models UK has ever had. He will tell all young people that you can exceed your dreams if you try. And he has.
