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 :mcgee with a bit more brains, less athleticism, and some good passing skills. Even Javale McGee with brains still isn't a franchise-big.
Because a lot of white people are struggling out here in these streets, so they take to the internet to vent. Imagine how low one must feel, that a whole country is geared towards your success, yet you cant capitalize on it
