The NBA season has just passed its midpoint and that means the league’s all-star game is right around the corner. The 2017 game is being held in New Orleans, which means Pelicans fans will have a familiar face in the Western Conference starting lineup: former Kentucky forward Anthony Davis, perhaps the best player of the John Calipari era:

This marks Davis’ fourth all-star appearance in just six seasons, as the former No. 1 pick and 2012 NCAA champion is having yet another stellar season, averaging 28.8 points, 12.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists per night. On top of that, he is second in the NBA in blocks per game with 2.6.
