Regardless he's getting his time to shine, and he's one of our better defenders which we reallly need on this team if we are to focus on defense. His offensive game will eventually come to him through pick and rolls or put back, before he improves his midrange jumper some more

Ta answer this ridiculous article, Ed Davis was a stiff for a long time. He's playing better recently and thats huge for Toronto, but lets not make it out like Toronto did Ed Davis wrong, he wasn't exactly tearing it up...in fact, he was downright woeful many nights.

Nice to see some youth develop as planned for once.

Ed Davis has been one of the few guys to play here that has the natural ability to make basketball plays that help the team on both ends as though he sees the game develop slightly ahead of everyone else. Shawn Marion also comes to mind, and really no one else. He's had great reactions on both ends from day one. He has not been downright woeful at all, apart from a couple weeks where he was out of shape after the lockout, or if you want to pick on his shooting skills early on in isolation from everything else. He does need to continue to get stronger, and he is that much better when he brings energy along with his natural instincts. He has been held back. I think it's pretty hard to deny that with a straight face. Has that hurt him? It probably could turn out to help him in the long run. But he can't have any more nights where he's thrown out there for 3 minutes. The dude impacts games, but not in 3 minutes of playing time.

I am here to apologize. I have knocked Davis on many occasions. But I have to admit, he has impressed since PrimoBoy went down. It's making the "Ditch Bargs" move look doable.

Good on you Ed.

Exactly.. he is only 23 going into his third year, and this appears to be his best season.. if you ask me, the timing has been perfect, with Bargs playing bad and going down to injury, we needed this from Eddy

get the fuck outta here with that shit... dont take what you see now and apply it to the entire tenure of a young player. What a joke. The guy sucked pretty bad for quite a while while he learned the NBA game. why is it so hard to swallow that guys need time to learn. Huh? Unless you have some other stupid axe to grind, which you do, because youre inclined to be so ridiculous.

just call the game as is man.... if you can... im not sure youre able...but shit, at last try
