NBA Mock Draft: Chicagoan Anthony Davis Projected To Go No. 1

Tom Ziller's latest NBA mock draft may not surprise many with the suggestion that F Anthony Davis will go No. 1 to the Charlotte Bobcats in the upcoming 2012 draft, but Ziller's projections for Davis's total impact might shock a few analysts and fans:

1. BOBCATS: Anthony Davis, Kentucky

Marcus Camby mixed with Ken Griffey, Jr. mixed with a wallaby mixed with Frida Kahlo. He's going to start and end World Wars before he's done.

Camby, the rebound-hogging points-fiend, plus Griffey, a Hall-of-Fame-likely baseballer and one-time young phenom, plus a wallaby, a fuzzy, jumping animal, plus Kahlo, an artist who painted mustaches and sometimes people too, could very well make Davis, if not the savior of the the listless Bobcats, at least a cultural attraction in Charlotte unrivaled in previous seasons.
