Anthony Davis is back.

After an injury-plagued 2015-16 season that cost him millions, Davis came back with a vengeance in his first game of the new season, scoring 50 points on 17-of-34 shooting with 16 rebounds, seven steals, four blocks, and five assists to top off a historic performance.

Unfortunately, it came in a 107-102 loss to the Denver Nuggets, but the bigger story is how Davis is back to his MVP level with the New Orleans Pelicans.
