As I was looking back through some of my NCAA Tournament basketball notes and quotes, I found a conversation with freshman Kyle Wiltjer where he revealed something very insightful about Anthony Davis that I never had a chance to work into a story.
He was explaining to me why the team’s success had really not been a shock to him or anybody on the team when I asked him if he had ever seen a selfish side of Davis or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Here’s what he said:
“Something that jumped out at me is during Senior Night Anthony he (Davis) subbed himself pretty fast a couple of times to get Eloy (Vargas) in there in his last home game. That just shows their character and they are both great guys and hard workers because Michael would have done the same thing,” Wiltjer said.
“It just shows their character and how good of guys they are. Cal does a good job recruiting those guys and that really helps our team bonding as well. It is one of the closest teams I have ever been on in my life and Iâ€ˆam honored to be on such a great team and just little things like Anthony did for Eloy is what makes this team special.”
