Anthony Davis had his 2015-16 season shut down back in March as he had a left knee injury and a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
Last night, The Brow proved he was back in the biggest way possible.
The 23-year-old forward dropped 50 points on the Denver Nuggets in addition to 16 rebounds, seven steals and four blocks - and the Pelicans still lost.
His superhuman efforts really deserved more credit and considering the vast defensive work he put in, it's a shame he did not get his just rewards.
In fact, no player in any game since 1973 has not produced a stat line like that and it's just the fifth time in history that a player ha scored 50 points or more in a season opener. That's ridiculous.
One has to wonder how long Davis will want to stay in New Orleans if they do not put a supporting cast around him that can justify his talents.
He is probably the best big man athlete since LeBron James, and that is not something to be said lightly.
It should be noted that Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans are currently missing from the New Orleans lineup and they would make a significant difference upon their return.
Is Davis giving us a glimpse into the future of the NBA? Will he be the very best player in the league down the road? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
