I think Davis has MVP potential. He could be Bosh offense + Duncan/KG defense

JV has hall of fame potential, likely somewhere between Pau Gasol and Tim Duncan. I think Davis has allstar potential, likely falling somewhere between Jerome Moiso and Tyson Chandler/Marcus Camby.

You're too kind to say such nice things, Pzab! Some of my comments are reactionary, others are simply hijinx..... all are wonderful, I do agree!

There is no place for anger in my RF, even Torap and I can get along.... it's filthy!

Those analysts who all said that JV would have been the 2nd pick in this years draft, behind AD would disagree.

And how is it to say Davis has all star potential and you give him a ceiling of Chandler and Camby?

I think JV's potential is somewhere between a white Hakeem Olajuwon and Jesus Christ.

Not all analysts agree and both Chandler and Camby have been all-stars...... so what's the problem Panda?

Selected to the NBA Rookie All-Star Game in 2003.


Close enough in order for me to justify my own claim!



Yes, you were right too!

Are you implying that Bosh was a better offensive player than kg/td, or that Davis can't match those two on offense?

its hard to say if jonas game will translate to the nba,

if someone wants to make hat comparison it looks good for the raps, that someone out there believes that this isnt a funny article to write,

it shows that jonas has potential and talent to challenge davis if his game translates

you can't put drummond, robinson etc becaue they clearly don't have the tools

drummond deinitely has the tools, he has the tools to be the next shaq. what's missing is talent (no one's sure how skilled he can really be), and work ethic.

So no talent or work ethic......sounds like a recipe for success. Lol

I don't think he will be a success. I was one of the few who didn;t want drummond on draft night, wanted lamb, but didn't know of ross, like many on here.

tools as in physical tools? he has them, that's for sure..

Drummond could easily be better than Davis.... but JV is better than both and it isn't close. I'm not sure Davis' game will translate to the NBA. He can't just jump around chasing blocks and he's going to get backed down and punished physically because of his noodle body.

dwight was a noodle when he came in, look at what he turned into. I think davis will be very good, just not hall of fame worthy. I think JV will be as good as davis, barring any injuries like bogut.

Spaghettini vs Pellizzoni.... it's not close.
