Toronto's basketball fans won't get a chance to watch superstars Derrick Rose, Dirk Nowitzki or Kobe Bryant in person this year, but the league's newest mega-star, Anthony Davis will make his second-ever visit on Monday.

Davis, who replaced Bryant as an all-star at the tender age of 20, is worth the price of admission, just like the others.

He leads the NBA in blocked shots (3.2 a game), while also scoring 20 points and hauling in 10 rebounds a night. Nobody's put up those averages since Shaquille O'Neal, back in 1999-2000.

Not bad for a kid who wasn't even on anybody's radar four years ago.
