The New Orleans Pelicans are currently trying to figure out what kind of team they have and part of that means letting their younger star grow into roles they’ll be occupying for the next few years. One such player is Anthony Davis, who was the first overall pick in the draft the other year and is now starting to find his place on the Pelicans roster.

One way to get noticed fast in the NBA is to be a jam master and so far Davis has been able to find moments to shine in this regard. One such moment came on Tuesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers when Davis was dished a vicious slam dunk after the Pelicans offense passed the ball around trying to find a shot.

Needless to say, Davis found the shot.
