Woooooooooo! Can't wait till his debut!
Our next game is Friday, hopefully that's enough time for him to get his stamina improved. Was hoping they kept him in the D league for a couple more games but his performances down there and our lack of bigs probably forces this.
Not surprising, I called it in the other thread. With Erie not playing until Friday, no point in leaving him down to practice with scrubs.
I hope Amir has a good game so that Davis doesn't need to be force fed too much PT right out the gate. I think they should and will try to ease him in.
Bargnani is asked how he gets beat on the boards.
"Being lazy maybe," he says. "That's the only reason it can be. I've got the body, I've got everything to take 10 rebounds a game. It's just sometimes I get lazy."
they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I think it's possibly that the combination of this team being terrible, and Davis not ever having played has led some of you to believe that he is somehow only sidelined as a saviour or very important piece to this fucked up puzzle.
He's not guys.
Don't set unrealistic expectations on a guy that was touted as a project for this year at the start since he missed almost ALL of his last year at college where it was hoped he would develop into a solid NBA prospect.
Perhaps he will one day be that player. But now, at this point, he is so far behind in his development that to expect anything from him past the odd promising play would be wrong.
I'm not counting him out, but I'm also sure as hell not placing to much on this kids shoulders, I hope, for his sake, the Toronto fan base doesn't either.
Here's my predicted line for him:
20 minutes, 10 points, 7 rebounds, 2 blocks.

14 points 9 rebounds 2 blocks in 25 min. Book it!
I wouldn't mind if both were called up but right now davis clearly dominated the 2 games he was there in the limited time he was there. What I really wanted to see was alabi and davis on the floor at the sametime I very much think they would compliment each other nicely
I would rather Davis play less than 20 minutes, don't want to aggravate his injury...
Davis' line: 42 min, 56 pts, 18 rebs, 11 blocks, 10 steals and 14 cheerleaders nailed. BEST. DEBUT. EVER.
The future is now!
