    Default Hyping someone just for their defense is absurdly stupid

    What's up with everyone being hyped up about Anthony Davis using his good defense as a main argument? Remember Bismack Biyombo? Remember Hasheem Thabeet? They were the best college defensive players in their class and hailed as the next big thing, and look how they did in the NBA?

    You don't hype a player just because they dominated defense in college. You pick players for their potential on the offensive side. And Anthony Davis has not shown he has skilled offensive game, no good jumpshot, no post move, small hands and skinny body.

    Watch him become the next Haseem Thabeet.

    Bismack didn't even play in the NCAA.

    All Thabeet did was block shots. DeJuan Blair shit on him.

    Terrible comparisons.

    you obviously did not watch him play before if you believe he has zero potential on offense. he was a guard until his senior year of high school and has good form on his jumper. he would have averaged more points if he didnt play for a school that was as stacked as his

    Still waiting for OP to acknowledge that he claimed Biyombo was heralded as one of the great defensive players in college.

    Anthony Davis has great hands, very good ball handling skills, good passing skills, blocks shots inside and out, and plays damn good defense.

    Thabeet sat in the paint and blocked shots.


    I don't even really like Davis, but OP is retarded.
