    Davis is just fine offensively, he knows his limits and plays within them...and like, he's an excellent defender and stuff, which is why the team drafted him.

    Buddah, you keep bringing up all these stats about Davis and how bad he is offensively, and it just baffles that you don't see the pointlessness of it.
    WE DON'T CARE IF HE CAN SCORE! THE TEAM DOESN'T CARE! HE'S THE BEST DEFENDER ON THE TEAM AND HE'S 21 F%#@&^% YEARS OLD!!

    There could be some permanent damage to his left wrist.

    His shooting numbers from beyond 10 feet including his free throw shooting percentage are just awful

    FT% = 55% compared to Reggie's 53%

    Compared to 66% in his second year at UNC. In his first year he only shot 57% from the Free Throw line so maybe his wrist isn't negatively affecting his ability to shoot. Maybe he just can't shoot free throws. Can English help him become a passable free throw shooter? Only time will tell

    When you look at his shot selection and FG% we find

    At the Rim------------64.9%------3.2 FGA per game
    Less than 10 Feet ----81.8%-----Only 1 FGA per game
    10-15 Feet------------25.0%------Only .3 FGA per game
    16-23 Feet------------33.0%------Only .4 FGA per game

    Compare to Reggie

    At the Rim------------41.9%------2.1 FGA per game
    Less than 10 Feet ----26.7%-----Only 1 FGA per game
    10-15 Feet------------00.0%------Only .1 FGA per game
    16-23 Feet------------00.0%------Only .2 FGA per game

    So right now Davis seems very similar to Evans in shooting ability except that Davis so far appears to be a better shooter than Reggie at the RIM and up to nine feet.

    But beyond nine feet you never want either one to shoot the ball.

    Fortunately for the Raptors both Bargnani and Johnson can shoot ball accurately from beyond nine feet.

    Paired with Bargs, it doesn't really matter if you consider him a 4 or a 5. He'll be the one in the paint while Bargs is a little bit further from the basket, angling for a drive or a jumper. Is Bargs the 5 or the 4? Who cares? I think Bargs and Davis are much more complementary players than Bargs and Bosh were. Hopefully Davis reaches his potential.
    They definitely are. Bargs + Bosh was one of the worst big man combos in the league. Their strengths and weaknesses were too similar. No team is going far with 2 guys whose games are so alike.

    How about trading Bargs, and getting some real help
    How is it that there is one of these in EVERY thread? Ridiculous.

    9 game sample size... not very statistically significant but it is what it is. Some thoughts:

    - Not a 6 rbs a night guy. Either gets ~9 rbs or ~3 rbs. 4 out of 9 games with 2 or less rbs. Matter of consistency.
    - Picks up fouls almost as quickly as Amir. 2 games with 5 fouls (in 18/24 minutes).
    - Raptors only won 2 games in January.
    - With a depleted rotation Davis should be averaging more minutes, especially with defensive liabilities.
    - Not looking much at the points. His offense is raw like sushi.

    Agreed. Well said.

    Have to keep in mind that alot of teams hadn't seen him play for about 6 months as well. While all those other guys were showing off in the NCAA tournament, Ed Davis was being forgotten about because of his wrist injury.

    And I don't think he needs to be taller necessarily to play the 5. Look at Big Ben. As long as Davis shows the heart and tenacity to be an inside presense, he'll do whatever he wants down there.
    no he can deffinately play the 5 for sure antanio davis was our part-time center and he was only 6'9 and joahkim noah basically the same build as ed and he does just fine so if he adds a bit to his frame he be able to do alot there.

    plus i think eds style of play is more suited at the 5 since hes way more effective closer to the basket.

    He has the potential to be everything the Raptors have not seen since the days of Antonio Davis, Keon Clark, Oak and JYD clogging the paint. If only they could clone a bigger version of him to play center by his side.
    exactly hes got a bit of all theyre qualities in him and hes soo long he doesnt need to blockas many shots by the amount of them that he alters, and adding a bit a muscle to his frame wouldnt hurt his potential is sky high.....

    lol and youre right i can just imagine a blake griffin or a kevin love and davis tandem would be a constant double threat

    He's bulking up too, give him another 25 lbs, lean muscle, this dude will be a menace down low. Reggie-lite on the boards, but with better mobility, athleticism, and offensive prowess

    He needs to get a whole lot stronger if he wants to play big minutes at center.

    My guess is teams letting need out weigh overall talent.
