Missing basketball while the sports world is on hold? To help fill the void, try some throwback Anthony Davis high school basketball highlights from 2011.

Davis famously hit a growth spurt before his junior season after starting his career as a point guard, leaving him with big-man size and point guard abilities. He looked like an absolute man among boys on the court at Perspectives Charter School in Chicago, Illinois.

This looks an awful lot like an NBA player competing in a high school basketball game. It's no surprise that Davis earned a ton of accolades in his senior year, including being the co-MVP of the Jordan Brand Classic and being named a First-team Parade All-American.

He continued to look just as dominant at the next level. Davis was the NCAA blocks leader and the SEC Player of the Year in his lone season at Kentucky, and he was the obvious No. 1 prospect in the 2012 NBA Draft.

It didn't take long for Davis to start dominating the pro game either. He averaged 13.5 points, 8.2 boards and 1.8 blocks per game as a rookie, and has averaged at least 20.0 points and 2.0 blocks per game every season since. He's a seven-time all-star, has three All-NBA first team honors, and looked poised to contend for his first NBA championship when the 2019-20 NBA season was put on pause. Los Angeles Lakers have to feel good about the future of the franchise with the 27-year-old Davis on the roster.
