Anthony Davis said his fellow Olympic teammates are helping him prepare for life in the NBA.

“There are a lot of great players,” he said. “I’m getting a lot of experience, they’re teaching me about the game.

“They’ve been giving me defensive tips, I’ve been learning how to play ball screens offensively, how to tip the ball out on rebounds if you can’t control it. It’s been a collective effort. All of the guys teach me different things.”

Anthony intends to use what he has learned to benefit the Hornets.

“It’s definitely going to help me throughout my career,” he said. “I’m learning early what these guys do.”
