    Anthony Davis' Place in the MVP Race

    in Basketball

    Rudy Gobert had a coming out party for the NBA during the BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge with 18 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks for the World Team.


    The Utah Jazz eventually traded Enes Kanter at the deadline, which promoted Gobert into a full-time starting role. Since then, Gobert has averaged 10.5 points, 14.1 rebounds and 3.1 blocks per game while shooting 57 percent from the field.


    Another big man who’s played well lately has been New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis. He's on pace to become the fourth player in league history with a player efficiency rating above 31. Only Michael Jordan, Wilt Chamberlain and LeBron James have previously done so. If the Pelicans make the playoffs, don’t be surprised if he gets serious MVP consideration as Michael Scotto outlined in a previous column.


    With that in mind, Scotto joined 1320 AM KFAN in Utah and hosts Kyle Gunther and Ben Anderson to discuss Gobert’s emergence, Anthony Davis’ realistic chances at the MVP award and the league’s top title contenders. We also looked back at the Deron Williams trade for the Brooklyn Nets.

    Firing of Monty Williams will cause Anthony Davis to Leave New Orleans

    in Basketball

    The bad news for Monty Williams was good news for the rest of the NBA.


    There is now a strong chance that Anthony Davis leaves New Orleans and becomes an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2017.


    That is the ultimate fallout from Tuesday's shocking news that the Pelicans had fired Williams after he led them to the Western Conference playoffs, where they were swept by the Golden State Warriors. The firing came a mere two weeks after owner Tom Benson wrote a public letter to Williams, general manager Dell Demps and the rest of the organization congratulating them on their achievement.


    So what the heck happened in the interim?


    Clear, concise answers were not forthcoming from front office executive Mickey Loomis, whose fingerprints are all over this move. Loomis, who also is the front-office overseer for Benson's other team, the NFL New Orleans Saints, is a guy who believes in organizational charts. In his mind, the coach should report to the general manager, and the GM should report to the owner. That was the the case in New Orleans, where Williams and Demps were on equal footing on the organizational chart.


    And in the twisted mind of Loomis, if you don't have a functional organizational chart, you don't have a fully functional organization.


    So he fired Williams.


    Idiotic.


    It is a fascinating story, and it will remain a fascinating story for the next several years because Davis is not going to forget how this hatchet job went down. Last time a player of his caliber had this type of beef with management/ownership, he got himself shipped out of town. You may have heard of the guy: Chris Paul.


    And in my crystal ball, I foresee Anthony Davis becoming the next Chris Paul.


    More in this interview with Kristian Garic and T-Bob Hebert on WWL Radio in New Orleans, the Pelicans' flagship station.

    Anthony Davis, energy machine, will be Team USA's leader

    in Basketball

    It is always great going on the air with ESPN Radio in Lexington, Kentucky, because the hosts on that station know more about basketball than most folks have forgotten.


    Did you know that Anthony Davis used to be a ballhandler extraordinaire before undergoing a growth spurt that has turned him into one of the NBA's top big men?


    That nugget of knowledge was one of many pieces of wisdom tossed around in this interview with hosts Chris Cross, Mike Cameron and Matthew Laurance this afternoon on The Sports Huddle Show.


    Enjoy.

    NLP Podcast Episode 18: Do the New York Knicks Still Belong to Carmelo Anthony?

    in Basketball

    With the fourth pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the New York Knicks selected Kristaps Porzingis to an array of boos, and quietly reinvented their team in the process. Competing for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the No Look Pass Podcast is curious what the team that occupies MSG has to offer to the playoff picture. Is Arron Afflalo this generations Jamal Crawford? Can Three Six Latvia kill a White Walker? Should the Knicks consider moving Carmelo Anthony?


    With the trade deadline approaching, the fellas will also build on their segment from last week, where they proposed a few teams that should make a move, and provide a couple of hypothetical trades with the help of the almighty trade machine.
