You probably didn’t need anybody to tell you that New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis is a great guy, but just in case you did – here’s another reason as to why the former Kentucky Wildcat is a special breed.
After Paul George suffered his devastating knee injury during Team USA’s scrimmage on Friday night, Anthony Davis left the Thomas & Mack Center and made his way straight to a Las Vegas hospital where he visited George who was recovering from successful surgery.
Now, it should be noted that Anthony Davis was probably one of a handful of players who went to visit Paul George (or will go visit the Indiana Pacers star) in the coming week as George is expected to remain in the hospital for at least three days.
Still, a wonderful and kind-hearted gesture by the New Orleans Pelicans star.
Classy move from Anthony Davis, who I'm told stopped by the Las Vegas hospital last night to visit Paul George as he underwent leg surgery.

The injury understandably shook up the vast majority of players who witnessed George’s gruesome knee buckle. Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers was said to be near tears in the locker room after the scrimmage had been called off while James Harden of the Houston Rockets was brought to a knee on-court just moments after George fell to the ground.
Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, who knows a thing or two about devastating injuries, could also be seen on the bench with hands on head, visibly shaken by what he witnessed.
Multiple NBA players who were watching the scrimmage at home tweeted out their support to Paul George as did just about every NBA team.
