I don't really think they put

I don't really think they put much credence on where the kids are from but mostly devy out the players on talent. It would be kind of unfair to have possibly the two best scorers on the same team.

Myck Kabongo

I see a little Iverson in his game. Wow is he fast! He hasn't been making his shots, but he can get one off at will. He might be one of the best in this class when it is said and done. He looks like he is pushing the ball up the court faster than Rose or Wall or Rondo. And that crossover is ridiculous. Wow!

A young KG comes to mind when

A young KG comes to mind when I think of Anthony Davis in terms of body type and what not. I'm not totally sure what kind of skill set Anthony has really. He used to be a guard, so must be pretty versitle and have good handles for his size.

Long, skinny, can pop, and is extremely athletic like Durant. Very few players have those attributes.

Not to mention he's a beast defensively and is INTENSE!! tha big fella is huslting out there all we need him to do now to become KG is get a manual on cursing and learn to spit after every play.

Kentucky's going to be tough

Kentucky's going to be tough to cover next year with Wiltjer and Davis, two pretty versatile big men.

He's no Durant. wont find any

He's no Durant. wont find any comparison where he is compared to Durant. Takes more than that to be a Durant. Gotta dominate and lead teams in H.S for one ( i dont think Davis team was even at .500) Not a deep shooter like Durant) Can't move to the two or full time at the Three like Durant( taking coast to coast a couple of times or used to be a guard doesn't count because plenty of time when you get that growth spurt you aren't that same guard because now you're dribbling from further up and not as quick). K.G makes way more sense

I think Davis averaged 32ppg

I think Davis averaged 32ppg 22rbs and like 7blk his senior year, man. He led his team as best he could. Sometimes you just have no other kids around you. Lol.

He does play a lot like Durant in HS, but his range is not like Durant's. This kid grew 8 inches in the last year, just crazy.

The flip side of that is

The flip side of that is since you have no other kids on youre team and you're team loses by 20 plus(which happened alot) you can pad youre stats. He pretty much played like other guys his height with handles

Anthony Randolph

Johnathan Bender

K.G

Perry Jones

Unlike those guys Durant could clearly play Sg/Sf not spot minutes but actually major minutes. His game is much more like K.G in H.S. Midrange game, Blocking shots, Rebounding, Coast to coast sometimes

Guys That are like Durant, it

Guys That are like Durant, it takes Five minutes into a game to know they are the real deal. Theres no "why wont he dribble or take that shot" (couple times Davis had it on the wing and did neither). You know when guys have that "IT" factor like a Durant even if they play bad.

"Midrange game, Blocking shots, Rebounding, Coast to coast sometimes"

Sounds a lot like Durant, man.

KD has always had that sweet stroke though. Davis has yet to add that to his repertoire.

If you think thats all it

If you think thats all it takes to be like Durant then thats sad.

The other white kid thats going to Kentucky can do all that as well so he must be like Durant too

Ya'll might wanna start a scouting service because out of every other service that has seen him play all year ya'll are the first to ever Compare him to Durant. Kobongo is athletic and quick so he just might be Derrick Rose

What? I never said anything

What? I never said anything like that. I'm just pointing out that everything that you've said so far is either wrong, or sounds a lot like Durant in HS.

Remember, we are talking about Durant in HS, not now. You may have forgotten.

Yeah i heard that buit every since time i watch him his handle looks nothing like a Point guard nor his mind set, which is very good since he will be spending mo of his time down low at Kentucky

I hope Cal gets Davis to live in the weight room because it was kinda painful watching him tryna post up P.J from the Free throw line with zero successes

I didn't know Mcadoo was this

I didn't know Mcadoo was this good...so good that I think either Henson or Zeller should jet to the NBA cause their stock will almost surely go down as he takes one of their starting positions and shows how he combines both of thier skill sets into one.

He's have a hard time taking there spot( doubt if he does). Lets not get carried away from a open gym all star game( although MaCadoo is good. He will add very nice Depth to that team as the first big off the bench

Austin Rivers?

So far I'm not impressed. He's been taking a lot of shots and it seems like it takes so much effort for him to score. I don't know maybe I'm just being a skeptical Duke fan but so far I feel like he's getting out played by Beal and Hairston and maybe even Cook.

What're your guy's unbiased opinions on Rivers?
