id prefer someone with back to the basket skills but since those kind of players dont exist anymore i guess ill be happy for davis
From ESPN: "Davis is a unique player. In high school, he was a 6-foot-1 guard before a huge growth spurt, and he remains an elite athlete who runs the floor like a much smaller player."
From DraftExpress: "He plays extremely hard and is incredibly mobile on top of that. He has the ability to step out on the perimeter and contest shots effectively while also being able to rotate and establish himself as a shot-blocker thanks to his excellent timing."
From NBADraft: "Combines a versatile skill-set with excellent length, fluidity and athleticism"
I think he is the consensus #1 pick so if we win the lottery we have to take him. I really like the kid and think he could be good. My question is if he can put on the wait to play center or will we just have yet another PF on the roster? If so I think Thomas will be gone, either through trade or amnesty
I can play that game too:
From Swish Scout.com: "His footwork is choppy and he doesn’t get his feet set properly going into moves, instead relying on his size and athleticism to awkwardly shoot over his man as quick as possible, rather than outmaneuvering them."
Adjectives like "choppy" and "awkward" are hardly synonymous with fluid and coordinated. The point is, we can all find someone somewhere to support what we're trying to say so the fact that some guru on a website happens to agree with you does not render my opinion invalid. I watch elite athletes perform on a daily basis so I think I have a somewhat informed opinion on the matter.
What you apparently fail to realize is that reasonable minds can disagree, particularly on a subjective observation such as this. That's my main issue with you, your absolutism and the condescending way that you dismiss the opinions of others. If you want to debate an issue that's great. I welcome the discourse, but as the saying goes, you can disagree without being disagreeable. You might want to keep that in mind the next time you feel the need to "call someone out".
