I saw Anthony Davis play finally on Wednesday.....if you don't think he is the real deal please take my word for it.....he IS!!!!!!! triple double with blocks and his team may be the worst I've seen around a top 100 player.....he will be the top pick in 2012....
do you know how long is his wingspan? It looks scary long
Really, a Kentucky recruit rumored to ask for $200,000 to commit can put up a triple-double in a lousy high school game? A 6'10 player with ten blocks against future frat boys, that must have never happened before.
cuz im the only reald deal on this website!!!
too bad its not a rumor anymore and its pretty much been proven to be a straight up lie. the lawsuit by the davis family is still going on and no one has stepped up to back up that lie..surprise this is what happens when someone hates on a person and the person decides to fight back
Gary Parrish of CBS covered the lawsuit issue. Whether the Sun-Times was right or wrong in what it alleged of Davis, player or university wants to see what would get uncovered during the discovery period of a lawsuit involving college recruiting.
im interest in finally seeing these newspapers get held accountable
That is fine, but the person who makes that happen better be sure to have the goods with no skeletons in their closet.
i have no problem with a news paper writing there rumor stories only if who ever there source is provides them with proof not just he said,she said
And dont believe this story one bit because coach Cal for one doesnt have to give a player money to come play for him, stars wanna come play for him automatically because he gets them ready for the nba. Secondly anothony randolph is good but hes not Shaq,Jordan,Kobe type good where Kentucky just has to have him.
This thread is about the kids NBA potential, not about how much money he may or may not have taken to commit (we can talk about it for days and days but guess what- none of us has any idea if its true or not!)
@Bothteamsplayedhard stop acting like a tool. I'm not saying he's the #1 pick because of the stats he put up, I'm saying he's the #1 pick because of the way he did it. He was playing point guard for his team because his teammates are horrible, and those "future frat boys" (as you called them) that he was playing against were actually Gary Lew Wallace- one of the favorites to win the state championship in Indiana this year. He was being guarded by Branden Dawson- a top 20 player and one of the elite defenders in America. It's not only me that was blown away by his performance- read what Brian Snow of scout wrote about that game. I was sitting with Reggie Rankin of ESPN Scouts Inc during the game and he was equally as impressed- he couldn't find a single bad thing to say about the kid! When Ant is the #1 pick I'm going to rub it in your face.
@lalaila his wingspan is reported to be anywhere from 7'2 - 7'4
he is not a lock to be number one yet seeing as he hasnt played a game in college where the competition is much better. seems liek i have to say that ever year (said the same thing about favors)
Andre Drummond > Anthony Davis
I bet you're saying that based solely on youtube highlights ... smh ... everyone keeps hyping drummond as the next amare/dwight howard because he looks really good on youtube ... drummond is not as good right now as Anthony ... he has a ways to go ...
and even if you have seen drummond live i bet you havent seen anthony live ... you sound stupid saying drummond is better if you've never even seen davis play
What makes Anthony Davis better? Drummond has the skills and the body that will translate immediatley Anthony Davis is more of a tweener.
What makes Anthony Davis better? Drummond has the skills and the body that will translate immediatley Anthony Davis is more of a tweener. And Quincy Jones is better then both of them anyway.
Personally I think Drummond is way better. Much stronger with a great frame, freaky athlete and he can handle the ball very well for a big. What does Davis do better then Drummond?
a tweener doesn't have position.....Davis can play the 2 if he wants at 6-10......so that is more like what I call an old fashioned matchup nightmare.....
@stanford....I didn't say he is a lock.....I know its far too early to call anyone a lock to be number 1.....he could get hit by a bus tomorrow....
I haven't seen Anthony Davis play, but Andre Drummond is the real deal. He has elite physical tools, with a little skill. He isn't very skilled yet, but he is only 17 and a junior. He still stays on the perimeter too often when he needs to make his mark in the post. IMO, he's an Amar'e Stoudemire w/more defensive potential.
yeah i think Drummond is THE NEXT.
but hey why he is still on 2012mocks, he is still junior?
I really don't like Drummond that much, he's just not assertive enough and he's to passive. A mean streak is not something than can be learned easily and you kinda need one to play in the NBA. If seen tons of players have a similar skillset and fail because they just don't have that drive to score and take over.
midwestbbscout, a 6'10" Kentucky recruit projected to play the 4 in college was being guarded in a game by a 6'5" Michigan State recruit projected to be a 3 but currently plays inside because it is high school at there is a lack of height. Like you said though, the 6'10" kid was playing the point because his teammates are let's just say future frat boys. I'm sure the state contending team from Gary has about as many D1 recruits as any state contending team, which would be maybe two, meaning the rest are not. And you want to make a grand leap that this particular 6'10" beanpole is going to be a top pick. Sorry, but this is why the NBA absolutely had to do away with kids going from high school to the draft. You can't be making grand proclamations from that for how someone will be at the elite level of basketball. How good was B.J. Mullens in high school to be the top player according to rivals? Wasn't Ryan Kelly supposed to be good? John Henson? Please go back and read a scouting report of Ater Majok from high school. What about the myth, the man, the legend, the man who can't play basketball John Riek? Heck, there are people with torches over the fact that Harrison Barnes and Perry Jones didn't walk on water the moment they stepped onto a college floor. Jim Boeheim went out on a limb and said Fab Melo could possibly be national freshman of the year, and he has been a coach for forty years. He at least looked the part, Davis looks like a gangly kid who in no way will have an easy transition to college, much less the pros. And if you want to look at the list of gangly 6'10" kids who transition seemlessly from level to level, the list begins and ends with Kevin Durant. These aren't John Walls or LeBron Jameses. Every so often there is someone who is just so physically dominant and impressive at such a young age, you wonder what he is doing out there with those kids. I have no doubt that is not the case with Davis.
