Absolutely ZERO offensive game and not much of a feel for anything other than blocking shots.

so you're basing this off of what?

do you watch a lot of his games?

Hilarious. Nerlens has a better offensive game than Davis. Which isn't hard.

We'll see how this kid does. Really excited to see how he turns out. Have to be honest though, I really don't see him, Poythress and Goodwin repeating what happened last year at Kentucky. Most of these "one and done" kids in these programs really shouldn't be one and done kids at all. All out of the kids coming out these days should stay in two years at least. But hey, they want to get paid. I get it.

Davis has a tremendous offensive game given his age, and if you think otherwise, you should watch more basketball.

I haven't seen Noel play enough to know too much about him, but it would be ridiculous to expect him to match maybe the greatest single season for a player in college basketball history. He is his own player, and Cal will develop him and get the best out of him.

Maybe the greatest single season for a player in college basketball history?

Kareem? Walton? Magic? Robertson? Thompson? Sampson?

List goes on and on for seasons that were better.

While I disagree, if you're going to make the "greatest season ever" argument then you can't include things like freshman player of the year awards just to make the resume look better. We're not talking about the best freshman season of all-time, we're talking about the best season of all-time. Bill Walton, Kareem, and anyone else in the discussion weren't freshmen during their potential GOAT season, or simply couldn't play as freshman due to rules.

That's fine, but him being a freshman is part of what makes it great.

I'd be happy with greatest modern era season.
