Legendary North Carolina Broadcaster Woody Durham brings more than three decades of experience as the voice of Tar Heel Basketball to our discussion about who Ed Davis really is. In the second half of the podcast we go back to our discussion with Coach David Thorpe about Solomon Alabi.
There is a fair bit of commentary about Davis’ poor second season. So, how does Davis compare to the rest of the draft class and other two bigs we mentioned? His numbers stack up quite well against the two: Mr. Davis gets to the line more often, rebounds well and has the best block-to-PF ratio (1.54) of the three. We’ll take it.
Davis was easily the best player on the board and it would have been a huge mistake to have passed on him. If you follow the theory of drafting by tiers, Davis was in a different tier from everybody else available at 13.
Whatever the Raptors have up their sleeve, and at this point anything must be viewed as possible, they have to address a need to acquire a facilitator, a Turkoglu-like player minus the selfishness and baggage.
I didn't know I had Tourette's syndrome until last night. My wife is very concerned. We have a top 5 center that is treated like the big oaf in the catholic league , that is a little touched and he smells a little. What gets me is our guards and wings don't feel it on the court , shit it ain't the coach , looks like the coach lets them jack up anything they want . Maybe it's a cultural thing , you know , the big oaf ain't cool , can't dance right , doesn't listen to the right beat. But why go there , people will just hate on me and call me the big oaf lover. The big oaf went toe to toe with the best in the league and in my opinion was the better player. To bad nobody on his team could see it .
