Video: Anthony Davis Guarantees Kentucky Will Win The National Championship This Season

Anthony Davis could still be playing for Kentucky. The NBA star would be a senior for the Wildcats this season if he'd opted to remain in school. 

If the 6-foot-10 MVP candidate was still a member of John Calipari's squad, they'd certainly be this season's champions. 

Kentucky, 15-0 and ranked No. 1 in the country, should be just fine without him. Davis thinks so, too. In a video for Red Bull, the New Orleans Pelicans' forward guaranteed the Wildcats will win it all this season. 

Kentucky is certainly the favorite to take home the title this season, but the Wildcats have looked vulnerable in recent games, needing at least one overtime to win its last two games against Ole Miss and Texas A&M, respectively. 

Kentucky is set to take on Missouri Tuesday at 9 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ESPN.
