Davis to be part of Disney show on NBA rookies


NEW YORK (AP) - Top draft pick Anthony Davis and former No. 1 choices LeBron James and Dwight Howard are featured in a program detailing life as an NBA rookie.

Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Clippers teammates Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, and a number of other top players are included in "My Life as an NBA Rookie," debuting Oct. 29 on Disney XD.

The program features footage of Davis' time with the U.S. Olympic basketball team after the college player of the year from Kentucky was selected by the New Orleans Hornets. It also shows players going through the draft process and preparing for training camp, along with some of the entertaining duties veteran teammates require of them.

Davis was the first collegian to play with the U.S. Olympic team since Christian Laettner in 1992.
