08:06 AM ET 10.22 | Look out, NBA. Through three weeks into the preseason, New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis has progressed so rapidly that Coach Monty Williams has used him at multiple positions and has run set plays designed to take advantage of his mid-range shooting. If he continues to develop as a scoring threat in the post and perimeter, Davis could eventually cause matchup problems much the same way Dallas Mavericks 7-foot forward Dirk Nowitzki imposes on teams because of his shooting ability. Already, Davis has developed a high release on his jump shot similar to Nowitzki that makes it difficult for defenders to block. "I'm just trying to get better each and every practice and not get comfortable," said Davis.

No mention of anything to do with pre-season in the story.

Seems to me that the story was focusing on his 'skills developement'.

Maybe there were some 'magic' words that you saw that I didn't.........

QUOTE(#7):

According to DJ, he'll be with the Lakers in 2016.

That'll be great! ...Anyways, maybe AD can be a combo LBJ/Dirk/DH (like Bron is a combo Magic/MJ/Mailman).
