Six months ago ESPN said Ed Davis looks like the steal of the 2010 draft. IMO all three of these players have good to very good potential. But Val is the biggest unknown of all three when it comes to playing in the NBA and he plays at a position that is the most difficult to adapt to in the league and takes the longest to develop.
My thoughts exactly, and how often is a player thought to be the next whoever and yet become busts in the NBA. It's simply because the NBA is a different beast.
