Honestly man, he is third on the depth chart at the 4, on a really bad team. Ed Davis is not good. Drafting another guy, just like him, is not good.
None taken, whatsoever...I can differentiate between somebody attacking an idea, or attacking a poster - big difference.

Ed's stats don't tell the story of his full game. He's the kind of player that does the dirty work, so that others can get the rebound. He sets really solid picks, allowing others to roll to the rim, and score the easy layup. His fundamentals are really good. He affects the game in ways like that. Watch just him, as opposed to the entire game, and you'll see some of the little things that he does.

Yes, he's a good player on a bad team (currently), but he'd have the same effect on a winning team.
