The only former Duke player who I would never go all “Tonya-Harding” on, cracking knees and taking names, is Jay Bilas. Bilas is without a doubt my favorite person to follow on Twitter. I like everything about his Twittequette (Twitter-etiquette). He wakes up every morning and carefully selects a Young Jeezy lyric, promptly following it with the catch phrase “I gotta go to work.” He makes fun of Digger Phelps any chance he gets. And he doesn’t seem to be under the same spell as the rest of ESPN when it comes to his alma mater. That’s almost all I can ask for in someone I follow on Twitter.
Today, Jay Bilas once again went to work by writing a piece for ESPN in which he formulated a “Top 10 big men in college hoops” list. Who made an appearance at the top of his list? Anthony Davis. Bilas had only good things to say about Kentucky’s freakishly talented freshman.
1. Anthony Davis, Kentucky Wildcats
Davis is the best defender in the country, and it has taken him only 20 games to prove it. With his freakishly long arms, great feet, athleticism, timing and feel, Davis leads the nation in blocked shots and has already set a Kentucky season record for rejections. Davis covers up the basket from 10 feet and in and can block shots in the paint and jump shots outside of the paint.
Read Bilas’ entire analysis over at ESPN.com. If you’re not an insider, simply enjoy as much of the list as I was able to see as an outsider (Anthony Davis and Anthony Davis only).
@AllyTuckerKSR Follow me, everything is alright. I’ll be the one to retweet Jay Bilas each night…
