LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – Taking a quick look into the NBA exhibition season, trying to learn the new uniforms and figure out Who's Hot and Who's Not. 

*Anthony Davis looked like the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year, with 22 points, 9 rebounds and a block while playing nearly 30 minutes for the Hornets. His only bad moment – three of Davis' shots were swatted. 

*Past and future teammate Darius Miller delivered 8 points in 12 minutes off the bench. 

*Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 10 points, three boards and four assists while playing nearly 29 minutes for Charlotte, making 5 of 9 nine shots. He started. He'll probably be a captain by Thanksgiving.

*Marquis Teague missed two shots and had two turnovers, while playing less than four minutes in his debut for the Chicago Bulls. A story in the Chicago Tribune said that Teague is definitely the team's third point guard, behind Kirk Hinrich and Nate Robinson, with Derrick Rose injured. There have been predictions the D-League is in Teague's future. Beware.

*Nazr Mohammed had 13 points and 12 boards in his homecoming with the Chicago Bulls. 

*Doron Lamb didn't play for Milwaukee. He's dealing with a torn ligament in his left elbow, hoping to avoid surgery.

*Kelenna Azubuike had six points in 14 minutes for his new club, the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

*Tyler Zeller, brother of Indiana center Cody, had six points and 3 rebounds in 24 minutes.

*Samardo Samuels did not play for Cleveland, although he has reportedly trimmed down to 246 pounds and been working with Antawn Jamison to improve his perimeter game.
