Everything has been going great for Anthony Davis. He finished off his amazing college career winning a championship and also found out he won't be drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats after all.

Now Davis has been given a chance to play for the USA Olympics team in London this summer. Davis' size could be needed for the team, as they could be short with Dwight Howard and LaMarcus Aldridge out due to injuries.

Even with all that, Davis is a "longshot" to make the roster, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader:

Jerry Colangelo, the man who leads this country’s effort in international basketball, says Anthony Davis is a “long shot” to make the United States’ Olympic team this summer. “Because of inexperience and etc., etc,” he said.

Yet, Davis, who turned 19 in March, might be a long shot that pays off, the USA Basketball chairman added in a telephone interview last week.

“He’s not a guard competing for a guard position where we’re reasonably deep,” Colangelo said in appraising Davis’ chances to making the U.S. team.

Pro Basketball Talk believes Davis will not make it, and instead, USA will likely move forward with guys like Tyson Chandler and Kevin Love as their centers.

But don't leave Davis out of the question. The unibrow can hit international.
