From guys like Cousins, Munroe, Favors, Hickson, Thompson to more established young guys like Aldridge, Love, Bargnani, Gibson to a whole lot more..... there seems to be many names that could easily be considered better now and later. Are we over-hyping Davis or is he the next big thing?
DAVIS < COUSINS
DAVIS > MUNROE
DAVIS > HICKSON
DAVIS > THOMPSON
DAVIS = ALDRIDGE
DAVIS = BARGNANI
DAVIS < LOVE
DAVIS > GIBSON
Davis could become the most all around & the most consistent player out of the lot IMO
He must work on these 3 things to become the player we hope he can!
-He must improve his FT shooting to 70%+
-He must work on his mid-rang jump shot.
-He must develop 1 or 2 go to moves in the post.
I didn't put "get stronger", because it is a give in.
I say Davis could in his prime give you:
17-19ppg 11-13rpg 2-3bpg shooting above 55% from the field...
If he improves those 3 major points I have above.
Also what is Davis's real hight I have heard rumors that he is only 6'8"??
