Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are different players with different strengths, but their becoming the first two college teammates to be selected with the NBA Draft's first two picks means that they'll be tied together for the rest of their careers. This game marks their first matchup of their pro careers. It's early enough in the season that both players can't be expected to wow us too much, but it's hard to imagine a more intriguing rookie matchup in 2012-13. Expect a few highlights that will make fans very optimistic about the future.
