    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.

    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 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.

    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 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 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 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.

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

    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 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.

    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

    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?

    Take the way these players play here with a grain of salt. Its a open gym All Star game and you can’t really get a true value of a player in this type of game. A better game to know how good  these playersare  before college is the U.S.A vs International players game because its wayyy more structured with Defense

     

    Did Kevin Durant just shoot that Ugly airball???

    Rivers:

    Great shooter, hasn’t missed any open looks, and he showed he can pull up with the one dagger he had in the first half. Very good ball handler as well.

    I haven’t really watched him too much and was paying more attention to McAdoo/Gilchrist.

    These Durant/KG comparison to Anthony Davis is too much. I see Tayshaun Prince when I watch Davis. It will be interesting if Calapari will put him at PF, because he will never be an NBA PF, he’s 190lbs right now and even adding 30lbs isn’t going to be enough to play the 4 in the pros.

    What do you think, Cal is going to play him at SF? No way. They have Liggins, Miller, and Gilchrist there. Davis will be a center on that team. Give him some time to fill out, he’s going to be a PF in the NBA.

    Why can’t he play PF. K.g played it from day one and was skinny. Warrick plays it and he’s pretty skinny. You dont have to be a hulk to play PF. He’s long and a retty good athlete.

    As far as SF can anyone tell me one moment in the game where he played/looked like a SF? He must not have been much of a guard when he was shorter or those skills didnt transfer very well when he grew. Either way it doesn’t matter because he will be playing PF/C at Kentucky. Kyle has more of a chance to Play some SF then Davis has because he is a much better shooter but more than likely he will be down low banging with Davis

    KG actually came in the league as a high schooler at 6’11 220lbs, Davis still has long ways to go to get to 220lbs and if he does (that’s 30lbs he’s adding) how will that effect his mobility? He will have the same faith as Brandan Wright if he stays at PF. He’s simply will never be strong enough to be an NBA PF. I’m sure he will be fine as a college PF but I doubt his chances as an NBA PF.

    Yeah K.G was never 220 when he first came it. Not that it really matters because you dont have to be super strong to play PF in the NBA. Gasol still isn’t super strong yet he plays it pretty well because he’s long. And Davis isn’t a power player so theres no need for him to get very strong. He does need to gain weight and im sure that will come with weight training in college like with other bigs. The good thing about being long is when a player backs you down you are still long enough to block there shot if you have ood timing. Another good thing is you aren’t gonna be alone checking a guy stronger than you you are gonna have help if he tries to play the back you down game

    If Davis’ rebounding transfers to college and pros, there will be no problem with him playing PF.

    I hope it does but its alot harder to translate rebounding over 6’5 guys to rebounding over 6’10 guys. I think he will be able to though which would be Great for my thrid favorite team in college basketball:)

    The NBA was different in the mid-90’s. You have to be pretty stacked or extremely talented to succeed off the bat as a big.

     

    Rivers looked terrible. Congrats, you can jack up a 3. Other than the one drive, which was a nice move, the other times he penetrated, he either had the ball ripped or he comaplined about an "defensive foul" not being called. It’s the McDonald’s game, kid. Shut your mouth.
