Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I love me some Josh Smith, but he has the basketball IQ of a rock and gets by on pure athleticism alone.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

He SHOULD be getting by on pure athleticism. He's most effective when he's doing that. Unfortunately now he's trying to be a shooter as well.

He shoots too many jumpers.

Currently watching 2 TIME NBA CHAMPION ADAM MORRISON and HIS LA Clippers take on the Celtics. He's putting on a clinic so far.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Quick question, what does every analyst out there see in Anthony Davis that I don't? I mean what are people going off of that he will be this franchise-changer? The dude is 220 lbs, and being realistic, is probably not even going to reach 245. His back-to-the-basket is absolutely dreadful, and his face-up game isn't any better. His jumper isn't good enough to actually be considered a threat, plus the fact that he suffers from poor shooting mechanics [No foot-setting, no rhythm, probably couldn't do the same jumpshot two times in a row.]

All I'm seeing is another player whose defensive skills get overrated just because he can block. Have you seen Davis' defense in the post? Even against absolute scrubs, he is biting for every pump fake and getting out-muscled.

"Oh but he can handle the ball well!"

Unless he has handles like Lamar Odom has/had, I'm honestly not that interested in what he can do with the ball.

What he does have going for him? Just great length, elite in almost all cases. 7'6 wingspan is definitely going to help him out. He can run the floor, has shown good passing. He can be a good player, but I don't think he is going to be great.

EDIT: I know based on his athletic gifts, his potential is obviously going to be high. But I'm just seeing with a bit more brains, less athleticism, and some good passing skills. Even Javale McGee with brains still isn't a franchise-big.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

He's looked impressive in his Team USA play. Plays with a lot of energy, is an underrated shooter, is a very good finisher, on defense he's an elite shot blocker, a good rebounder. I'd say his biggest faults are discipline on when to go for blocks and post play, both offensively and defensively.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

Those Dream Team throwback uniforms looked nice against Argentina. Team USA needs to play more better though. They look like they are being saved by Durant's shooting mostly.

Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012

I could see Anthony Davis being a bust and another Thabeet like player. It wouldn't really surprise me too much. Centers today really do seem to lack that ability to dominate in the post and have those go to moves that made players like Hakeem so successful. They don't need a lot of moves, just a couple that they can rely on.
