Anthony Davis could mean to the Hornets what Drew Brees means to the Saints

Davis has the potential to be the best big man to come into the NBA since Tim Duncan. With Duncan, the Spurs have won four NBA titles and are threatening for a fifth.

We will see if Davis can live up to what will be astronomical expectations.

What Davis is already doing is selling tickets. A Hornets staffer texted tonight "phones are blowing up."

Davis will also likely keep Eric Gordon here long term. Gordon would be crazy to leave.

Meantime, post-Katrina, New Orleans and Louisiana are on an incredible sports run. Since the storm, LSU won a BCS championship, the Saints won the Super Bowl, and now Anthony Davis falls into the lap of the Hornets.

There is no better time to be a sports fan in New Orleans.
