New Orleans Pelicans star Anthony Davis will stockpile MVP votes next year

Things are still looking up for Davis.

New Orleans Pelicans power forward Anthony Davis will be shelved for the remainder of the 2013-2014 campaign.

The 21-year-old Davis, who suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left hand on December 1, has been battling back spasms for the past week.

Davis averaged 20.8 points, 10.0 boards and a league-leading 2.8 blocks over 67 games.

Despite Davis’ brilliance, New Orleans (32-46) remains in the basement of the Southwest Division.

Taken first overall out of Kentucky in 2012, “Unibrow” appeared a bit stronger as an NBA sophomore.

Accordingly, the 6-foot-10, 220-pound Davis overwhelmed defenders and looked unstoppable in the paint.

Quick, explosive and able to expertly run the court, the former Wildcat routinely compiled double-doubles and became a commanding force in the association.

Dismissing their atrocious mark, the Pelicans were a somewhat difficult adversary with Davis protecting the basket.

Following a breakout season on the hardwood, expect Anthony Davis to stockpile MVP votes next year in “The Big Easy.”
