WHAT THEY'RE SAYING AROUND THE WEB
ESPN - CHAD FORD
Big man Anthony Davis is a lock as the No. 1 pick in the draft. The college basketball player of the year is the rare prospect who has virtually everything you want in a player. He's got elite size, length and athleticism. He produced at a high level on the court (he led all NCAA players in PER this season) and still has tremendous upside going forward. He's a great kid and a hard worker.
COLLEGE HOOPS UPDATE
A unique, dominant defender from the post to the perimeter, Davis also sees the floor like a point guard, is unselfish and never quits on a play. Davis would give Michael Jordan and company star power to complement developing rookies Bismack Biyombo and Kemba Walker.
Fluid athleticism, incredible length and guard agility in a 6’10 package ... Davis is a game wrecking defensive presence and disruptor unlike any incoming draft prospect in quite some time (4.8 BPG) ... He combines the physical shot blocking package of a 7’6 wingspan and quick leaping ability with a relentless motor and high-level defensive intelligence ... In addition to his length, the speed at which he chews up ground allows him to affect shots all over the court ... He has phenomenal recovery speed and can cover up the defensive blemishes of teammates. Dynamic versatility at both ends of the floor makes for boundless potential.
