Nba Draft: Anthony Davis Learned How To Play Big When He Had To Play Small

But the desire to find a potentially franchise-altering big man remains the same — perhaps more than ever in a league dominated by point guards — and the New Orleans Hornets will have a rare opportunity to draft a potentially dominant, shot-blocking forward who just happened to be a 6-foot-2 guard three years ago.
