Who knew Pelicans forward and former Kentucky Wildcat Anthony Davis is a tech wizard?
The latest edition of the “This is SportsCenter” commercial series from ESPN shows Anthony Davis working in the IT department where he’s the perfect fit because he’s such a good “blocker.”

Get it? Blocking software instead of basketballs is very clever. Davis is opposite anchor John Anderson in this spot, and he complains to Davis when he can’t access his blog or play solitaire because he has “blocked” both websites.
The spot immediately brings back memories of the old LeBron James spot where James uses a chair fit for a king. The HR department in Bristol clearly has an eye for talent. In his one season at Kentucky, Davis averaged 4.7 blocks per game. He had four blocks in the Pelicans season opener against the Nuggets but miraculously New Orleans still lost even though he had 50 points as well.
He clearly has a job in waiting after basketball is over in the ad blocking department too.
