Anthony Davis earns NBA All-Star starting spot

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - Anthony Davis is just 21 years old, but he's already an NBA superstar, and now a starter for next month's All-Star game.

Davis received enough votes to become a Western Conference starter for the first time. He was a reserve last year when New Orleans hosted All-Star weekend. Davis is the third player in New Orleans franchise history to represent the team in multiple All-Star games, joining Chris Paul and David West.

Davis leads the league in blocks, is top 3 in scoring and top 10 in rebounds. He is averaging 24.3 points on .563 shooting from the field, 10.4 rebounds 3.0 blocks and 1.5 steals over 36.0 minutes in 38 games.

Davis has recorded 23 point-rebound double doubles on the season, including 21 20-10 games, nine 30-10 games and four 25-points, 10-rebound, five block performances.

The 2015 All-Star game is set for Feb. 15 in New York.
