Looks like Jrue let the news out in the last line of this SI article that I was already planning on posting before they dropped that news at the end. Its a really exciting article.
Initial jokes aside, Holiday eventually got in line with The Franchise.
“The color scheme is dope,” he said. “I’ve seen the jersey a little bit, the release is August 1. I’m excited.”
The most exciting stuff to me though was Jrue, Coach K and Colangelo talking about AD:
“Anthony is the franchise guy,” Holiday said. “I just want to bring some heart. Not saying that there wasn’t heart there [in New Orleans before] but [I bring] heart, hard work, defense. Getting stops, getting out on the break. Trying to be a point guard, trying to be a leader.”
“The very first thing [I noticed about the big men in camp] is how much Anthony Davis has developed,” Krzyzewski said. “One of the reasons he was on the Olympic team was because we look and see he’s a guy who is going to get a lot better and hopefully be on a number of teams. His defense in yesterday’s practice was outstanding.”
USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo was also effusive in his praise of Davis.
“I’ve seen real improvement with the guy we had last year, Anthony Davis, because we’ve had more time to see him,” he said. “I think in the next couple of years, he has a chance to elevate himself even to another level, because he has one skill that sets him apart: he can block shots any place on the floor. He’s the one big I would say, really, ‘Wow.’” LINK
