Only one day after Anthony Davis was selected with the No. 1 overall pick for the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, he will also be getting the nod as an All-Star. In the initial round of fan voting and selection process conducted by the coaches, Davis didn’t quite make the cut. However, Kobe Bryant will not be ready to play in the All-Star game due to injury, and none other than the Unibrow will be taking his spot.

While it is sad that Bryant will not be present, Davis is an extremely worthy replacement. Even though the Western Conference is really stacked with top-notch talent, Davis was possibly the biggest snub and the first in line to make his All-Star debut.

To no ones surprise, Davis made a huge leap this season. He is a truly unique big man, who has terrific ball handling skills for his size, a great shot-blocking ability and outstanding athleticism. Davis is putting up 20.5 points, 10.5 rebounds and 3.3 blocks per game this season.
