Anthony Davis contributes much of his success on the court to his older sister, Iesha Davis. Turns out, Anthony won’t be the only Davis family member to get drafted by a pro team this week. Iesha was selected in the latest Harlem Globetrotter draft. Below is the link to the Harlem Globetrotters press release and some comments they had about the big sister of “The Brow”.
The world famous Harlem Globetrotters held their sixth annual player draft today, selecting 2012 College Slam Dunk Champion James Justice of Martin Methodist College, three-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt, and Iesha Davis, sister of likely #1 overall NBA Draft pick Anthony Davis.
Others selected include College Slam Dunk semi-finalist Bryan Narcisse of Clemson University; Division II All-American Stefan Bonneau of C.W. Post; and Dylan Richter, the University Athletic Association Player of the Year at Washington University in St. Louis, who recently interned with the Globetrotters’ digital team.
“Our draft is always fun, because we look for athletes of all different kinds that might have the attributes to be a Harlem Globetrotter,” said Sweet Lou Dunbar, the Globetrotters’ director of player personnel. “James Justice is a dunking dynamo in the mold of many great Globetrotter dunkers, Iesha Davis has a great bloodline, and how can you go wrong with the world’s fastest human?”
• Chicago native Iesha Davis is the older sister of Kentucky’s Anthony Davis, the projected #1 overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft. Iesha Davis has collegiate playing experience as a 5-10 forward at Richard J. Daley College and had a large influence on the development of her younger brother, who has compared their relationship to famous basketball siblings Cheryl and Reggie Miller.
