Poll: Should Kentucky Retire Anthony Davis’s Jersey?
Syracuse retired Carmelo Anthony’s No. 15 jersey on Saturday, which got us to thinking: Should Kentucky do the same for Anthony Davis?
Like Melo, Davis led the Wildcats to an NCAA title in his only year on campus. Like Anthony, he was the MOP of the Final Four. And he went as the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s NBA Draft, while Melo was No. 3 in 2003.
