Default Re: Could A. Davis be a bust?

He's not gonna be a bust, but I think people are expecting him to do great things. They are like, "He'll be an all star his first year then a superstar his second." It's like woah now. Is this really an all-nba talent? To me, not even close. Maybe all D first.

He's going to be a good starter; he'll get paid for his second contract, but him being a franchise savior is laughable to me.

Default Re: Could A. Davis be a bust?

I don't like Davis as #1 overall.

My NBA team-building/draft philosophy is "never draft a one-way prospect with the top pick." I feel like with that pick you HAVE to grab a guy that is NOT a mismatch on the defensive end when facing elite players and can be a part of your offensive philosophy from day one.

I do not have a issue with Davis being ranked as the top prospect. Davis has shown flashes of offensive potential, and will be a factor as a help defender immediately.

Still because of my philosophy and how high the rest of the league is on him I'd trade out of the top slot if I was New Orleans.

This. The entire draft is a calculated crap shoot.
