Illinois – Anthony Davis
It’s fair to say that Davis is Illinois’s best athlete because of his incredible achievements. The Englewood native stayed loyal to his community. From there, Davis became one of the top players in the NBA. He had an outstanding career with the Pelicans before he outgrew them.
Then he joined the Lakers as LeBron James’s heir-apparent. He won his first championship ring and racked up All-Star awards. Davis has outstanding defensive skills, leading the league in blocks three times. He’s a brilliant athlete and any team is lucky to have him (via Clutchpoints).
