Well Greg Oden was pretty fucking amazing when he was healthy so what's your point? You should know that more than anyone.

This is the peak of Lillard's career. Better enjoy being ahead of Davis at something young fellow, cuz it ain't lasting

With Lillard's drive, I'm sure he will improve.

Quote:
“When people say stuff about my defense, it bothers me,’’ Lillard said. “And I’m aware of it. It drives me. It lights a fire under me.’’

If that attitude and drive doesn’t convince Trail Blazers fans that the franchise is in good hands, maybe this will: The wheels are already in motion for Lillard to workout and study defense this summer under the tutelage of the greatest defensive point guard ever, Hall of Famer Gary Payton.

“He said ‘I want to help you,’ ’’ Lillard said of Payton. “He said it would take time for me to become a defender, but he said I have everything to become one. So this will be the summer where I get in the gym with him and try to learn from him.’’

Easy selection. Can't fukc with Oaktown PG's.



And those talking about how good Davis is going to be better pray he isn't as injury prone as he appeared to be in his rookie campaign.

There's absolutely no reason for him to be as poor as he is defensively. He has all the tools to be a good defensive player. His defensive game needs to catch up to his offensive game in order for him to get to the next level.

Only the 3rd rookie ever to have 1500/500. The other two? Allen Iverson and Oscar Robertson.

AD would have won it had Monty Williams not been an idiot and yanked his minutes around all season. Every time Davis would get hot, Monty would sit him. No matter, because Davis beasted even with limited minutes.

Well, you have to consider the reason why he was pulled. He was probably not ready mentally or physically in some shape or form. I don't believe for one second that he was pulled just to be pulled. There are reasons for everything. My money is on him not being physically ready for certain bigs along with managing his rookie wall.

I don't believe Davis is ready to play 30+ minutes the entire year this past season. Just be happy he's progressing the way he is. His game is alot more diverse than we gave him credit for.
