Hate to be 'that guy,' but Andre Drummond's is 22.66. He's missing from the list.
No doubt Drummond has been great. Davis' biggest limitation right now is Drummond's biggest strength... he's a GROWN MAN.
He's physically better than 95% percent of the guys he faces. Davis will never have Drummond's body, but as he gets stronger he'll go from really good rookie to potentially great. Monty's said it, and its clear when you watch him, but Davis gets pushed around a lot. That's not a problem for Drummond. Davis does has way more offensive game than Drummond,though.
Drummond also has no responsibilities on his team. He comes off the bench knowing he's only gonna play 20 minutes, and he plays with his hair on fire that entire time. Conserving energy and fouls are no concern for him. With that said, I like how they're using him as a rookie and its gonna be interesting to see how he develops.
His FT shooting is devastatingly bad, though. When the time comes for them to actually be ready to count on him to win games, he's gonna be useless down the stretch.

Drummond does have a man's body, but have you seen him play? He rarely uses it like he should. He is as raw as a player gets.
quote:Thats exactly my point, his game is not developed at all.
His post game is the most absurd thing in the NBA right now. He fades on funny looking jumpers.
Thats exactly my point, his game is not developed at all.
but do y'all think he will be a better player in the long run over AD?
no basketball skill.
Bigs that can't shoot rarely turn it around
Davis may not be as freakish but he's still a physical freak but he also has actual basketball skills both offensive and defensive that can be fine tuned over time. His ceiling is a Duncan/Garnett top 5 player in the league type.
It's quite possible. Drummond could lead the league in blocks and rebounds as early as next season if he keeps progressing. Ben Wallace-esque.
Davis's offensive game is light years better, though. He's only going to get better.
Shaq, Wilt, Dwight Howard all say "What's up?"
