In case you missed it, likely No. 1 draft pick Anthony Davis gave a great answer to the Shreveport Times (http://www.shreveporttimes.com) during a recent interview when asked about what was the biggest thing he learned at Kentucky under John Calipari.
“Just working hard. You don’t work hard then you won’t be successful. He always pushes us to work hard before practice, after practice. Work hard every day, don’t take any plays off in practice or the game. He made sure we were in great shape and didn’t lose focus,” said Davis.
Not a bad answer considering so many critics like to label Calipari as doing little more than just rolling the basketballs out for his players to knock around in practice.
I also liked how Davis acknowledged that NBA players would be “smarter” with their shots than college players and what he would have to do to be an effective shot blocker at the next level.
“I’ve got to play even smarter now. College and the NBA are two different levels. You’ve got to learn a lot of guys’ tendencies and moves. That way it will be easy for me,” Davis said.
