Anthony Davis feels “great” about roster, offensive schemes

1 Comment

Everybody is expecting a monster year from Anthony Davis. Going into his fourth season and coming off his first career playoff appearance, Davis is a trendy preseason MVP pick, and there’s a lot of buzz around the Pelicans making a leap from fringe playoff team to bona fide contender under new coach Alvin Gentry. Davis is liking what he sees from his new coach so far.

From’s Ken Berger:

I feel great,” Davis said. “Great coach coming in with new schemes. Everybody’s coming back healthy. I think we can definitely be a great team in this league. It’s all about what we do out there on the floor.”

Gentry is a much more dynamic offensive coach than Monty Williams, and should be able to put Davis in a position to truly maximize his skillset, which is a scary thing for the rest of the league. There’s plenty of talent on this roster — the biggest question mark is whether the likes of Jrue Holiday, Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson and even Davis himself can stay healthy. They’ve all had injury issues in recent years.
