Taking the court for the first time as foes, Hornets big man Anthony Davis walked over to LeBron James before Friday's tipoff, gave him a hug and said something that made the reigning MVP crack a smile. James and Davis are good friends. They were teammates on the Team USA squad that took home Olympic gold this past summer in London. But this was the first time Davis, the top overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft, would face off against his childhood idol James, the 2003 No. 1 overall pick. All told, the 19-year-old from the University of Kentucky finished with 24 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and a block in the Hornets' 96-89 win in Miami. Safe to say Davis made quite the impression.
