These photos popped up on the internet recently, claiming to show this year’s No. 1 overall draft pick, Anthony Davis, at a 6-foot-2 middle schooler. And while the tiny, terrible-at-sports charter school he attended is indeed grades 6-12, it’s also just as possible that this is from just before Davis hit a famous growth spurt before his senior year of high school.
And that is the crazy thing. Just looking at this dorky, skinny dude, it’s feasible that these photos could have been snapped any time from seventh grade to junior year. I mean, Davis’ unibrow hadn’t even grown in yet, so we can’t use it for carbon dating. We basically just have to guess how old he is. 12? 16? Your guess is as good as mine.
Nonetheless, very cool Stefan Urquelle/Steve Urkel side-by-side tribute going on right here. Nice to see a Chicago guy paying respect to a Chicago legend.
