When is being referred to as a freak of nature a compliment?
When it comes from Kevin Garnett.
Garnett got his first glimpse of New Orleans Hornets rookie and first overall pick Anthony Davis on Wednesday night. Davis posted a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double as the Hornets snapped the Celtics six-game winning streak, 90-78.
“That kid is long,” said Garnett. “I think he makes me like a midget, man. … He’s a freak of nature. The kid’s going to be really good. The kid’s going to be really good.”
Now Garnett has expectations for Davis as well. It is not every day that he throws around a term “freak of nature” for teenagers who have only played in 26 NBA games.
