Chicago's Anthony Davis' NBA dream about to come true

NBC Chicago– It’s not often you see a basketball player go from obscurity to being a household name overnight, but that’s what happened to Chicago native Anthony Davis.

Davis is a lock for the first draft pick on June 28, but just two years ago, the Englewood native never thought it would get this far..

“I used to look at SLAM Magazine and all types of magazines and think, ‘I wish it was me on this cover,’ but as far as playing in the NBA, no. I had no thought of ever being here right now,” said Davis last Friday during the media session of the NBA Draft combine held on the University of Illinois at Chicago campus.

Davis first got people talking after playing a summer of AAU ball with the famed Mean Streets club, the same one Derrick Rose played with when he was in high school. Davis dominated on the summer circuit against elite-level talent but his high school team, Perspectives Charter School, wasn’t very good.

Still Davis emerged as everybody’s All-American by the time he was ready to graduate and he then accepted a scholarship from the University of Kentucky and proceeded to take the college basketball world by storm just like he did at the prep level.
