Daily Debate: Anthony Davis Compares Best to What Current or Former NBA Superstar?

Kentucky Wildcats freshman sensation Anthony Davis, who won both the Wooden Award and AP Player of the Year for the 2011-2012 NCAA Men’s Basketball season, has been compared to many NBA Hall of Famers, most notably Bill Russell, by both Louisville head coach Rick Pitino and Hall of Famer Bobby Knight. Who do you think he compares best to? Voice your opinion on the Razz and Jazz Sports Blog.

    Marcus Camby.

      I have seen that elsewhere. Think he is a better shot blocker than Camby and has a better upside on the offensive end as well. Imagine how well he would have performed if featured on offense.

    Slightly smaller version of Tim Duncan. He’ll be better than Marcus Camby.

      Working on a piece where I compare him to Tim Duncan, so I agree with you 100%. He will also be better than Marcus Camby.

    I agree with Marcus Camby- not a dynamic
    Scorer, but a great defender and rebounder.

      I think he will be better than Camby on both the defensive and offensive ends of the court, and if he has the drive to work on his offensive game, sky’s the limit on that side of the court as well.

        I think Davis should stay another year. Just look at him! He is so skinny! He needs to bulk up before he goes to play with the big boys.

          He definitely needs to bulk up, but if he put on 20lbs he should be OK. An NBA team will have him in the weight room.

    Response to ‘Sam’s Sports Brief':
    If you are the projected #1 pick in the draft, what is the possible benefit of staying another year? Clearly he cannot improve his draft position. One need only look at Sullinger to see that it is possible to over analyze anyone to the point where staying an extra year decreases your draft position. Since the NBA is a business, and Davis has performed at a level where he is seen as the best prospect, what would be the benefit of risking a potential career ending injury when you are already the #1 NBA prospect?
