Default Is Anthony Davis more like Karl Malone or Tim Duncan?

Last season he averaged 29/13/4 and 3 blocks (or sumtin).

That's prime Tim Duncan stats, actually better, but his impact was more like Karl Malone.

He is more like Lebron, empty stats and not a winner unless surrounded by complimentary players.

AD is a significantly better scorer than Garnett.

I'd say AD's scoring skill set is more like Duncan's except he has way more athleticism.

Super-charged Minnesota Love. Stats are juiced, impact is noticeably less than the numbers suggest. There is no excuse for the Pelicans to be pretty much out of the playoff race at the time he requested a trade.

sweet if we are lucky he might average 16ppg in the finals instead of 8ppg like Love. Modern day Wilt's

Karl Malone was one of the most physical players in league history in the golden age of big men while the other guy refuses to play center against mostly soft tweener bigs who would rather take a perimeter shot than bang down low.

Malone had a great mid range face up jumper.

That's using hindsight. I didn't intend for my comparison to go that far. What happens to him next is up to him, and I don't think he will pull a Love. I feel much more like he will prove he is as good as he seems (but that is something he certainly didn't do last year).

Was he 1-9 in the 1st round too?

If so, then more like Jordan
