This is your No. 1 pick New Orleans. Your franchise savior.

Anthony Davis, last seen leading Kentucky to a national title, attended the NBA Draft Combine, although he didn’t work out for teams. He doesn’t have to. While he says in his last sentence that his selection isn’t set in stone, it is. He will be the first name called.

In part because he seems humble and a hard worker, which are things that can help separate the good from the great in the NBA. And Davis could be great.
