West: Anthony Davis (NOP)
The New Orleans Pelicans sophomore leads the league in blocks per game by a wide margin, but he’s far from a one trick pony. He’s a lethal scorer that averages more than 20 points per contest, and is still active on the glass. Anthony Davis is a legitimate contender for 2014 Most Improved Player and Defensive Player of the Year. Perhaps he’s being punished for missing two weeks with a broken hand, or maybe he’s still “unproven,” but no right-minded basketball fan would argue if he had a place on the team. In fact, he is the most likely candidate to take Kobe Bryant’s spot, since Bryant will remain sidelined as he recovers from a fractured patella.
Per Game Stats: 20.4 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.3 blocks
