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?
At the end of the day, Davis will be better than Monroe, Hickson, Thompson, Gibson, Bargnani(in terms of value, not talent. Hell he might be right under Bargnani right NOW at the moment with trade value.)

Cousins will be better, Favors probably, Aldridge probably, Love will be, and if Bargnani grows balls he will obviously be better.

I see this guy as a HUGE steal from the draft.
