attitude issues with Ed Davis? i don't follow the Raptors all that much, but i assumed that good attitude was the one biggest thing he had going for him besides his length.

Yea this is a shame... The picture is not "out of date" but Ed Davis is "out of shape". Who wants a lean PF anymore?

People were REALLY high on Davis. I believe it was unrealistic expectations. Maybe he developed more offensive skills this summer (mid-range jumper) but physically he looks mediocre for a NBA PF.

I got this pic from a blog but also saw it on RealGM... It was described as only 2 weeks old.

I was a hard gainer.

I was ripped.

It takes all out effort. Some people have it, some don't.

All I now is Terrible Terry must not be happy with Junior!

Well, for a "pudgy" looking guy he has pretty good seperation between his deltoids and triceps.

Ed Davis with "love handles". Not what I was expecting after all the "hitting the gym" talk at the end of last season.

I don't think he's pudgy Acie.... he just doesn't look like a guy that trains for 8 hours a day. Which, is his job

He ain't doing his job.

In fairness, it takes time to transform one's body, especially if they're trying to do it in a way that doesn't hinder basketball skills and abilities....

Besides, it's more about bottom-half strength than t-shirt muscles for bigs.

Pictures lie. I still don't get why you can't see the script that was predominantly on his left arm before, or why he has that weird dent at the top of his shoulder. I think if nothing else, it's a weird pose where he's pushing his chest out to show off the work. In any case, I'm done looking at a topless dude for some time now. Completely filled my quota for the month.

So where are we at with this? Ed Davis versus...... all PF's.

Dirk, Gasol, Randolph, Aldridge, Griffin, Duncan, Love, Bargnani, Millsap, Josh Smith, Lee, Garnet, Ibaka, Scola, Bosh,Boozer,West, Anderson, Blatche. Gibson, Favors, Hickson, Thompson... and a whole crop of PF's to come out this year....

I guess Cousins and Monroe are C's now, but they should still be in the discussion given how interchangeable PF and C's can be, thus minimizing the value of someone who can't play both spots.

So my question stands, is Ed really a cornerstone?
