Let me know when the NBA goes from 82 game seasons to 1. Wasn't your claim he can be a 10-10 guy? When I read that I assumed it was over 82 games - not 1.
Considering out of approximately 450 NBA players only 7 (or 1.55%) average over 10 rebounds per game and only 28 of 450 (or 6.22%) average over 8 rebounds per game - I rest my case.
Again, we'll have to agree to disagree. But for what it is worth, I'd really.... I mean REALLY.... love to be wrong.
On the topic of one game Dre got 17 against the Pacers before maybe he's capable of joining that club! lol
Also, ED would need to average nearly 40 minutes per game to get his 10 rebounds whereas Humphries gets his 11 in under 35 minutes.
in other words amir has been around the block and ed is still learning the ropes.
one thing is for sure they either have to commit to one or deport em both.
I'm leaning toward last, but, if I wasn't i'm keepin ed.
Nice to see the Raptors hang in when the game could have been a blow out.
I feel really good about the direction of the team under Casey.
I've said it a number of times this year (and it is not an original thought as many others have said as well) but I cannot wait to see what he can do with a talented roster.... I mean even an average roster talent wise.
Just some notes from a professional. Rebounds Per 40 Minutes 11.5.+ Long lefty who can score around the basket. Slim build, must add strength.
+ Quality athlete who can block shots and rebound. Jumper a question mark.
+ Good tools, but remains raw. Needs to develop post game, ball skills.
Davis had a very promising rookie season after bouncing back from preseason knee surgery. Although still raw and having an undeveloped body, the bouncy lefty showed great finishing skill by shooting 57.6 percent from the floor and finishing ninth among power forwards in rebound rate. Davis also blocked shots (12th among power forwards), although his lack of muscle was repeatedly exposed in a Raptors frontcourt that lacked a tough guy.
Although Davis shot well, he didn't shoot often -- he was just 65th among the league's 70 power forwards in usage rate. One suspects he can do more, as he had respectable percentages on shots away from the basket area, so this wasn't a case of just being a dunk specialist.
Nonetheless, his high shooting percentage and low turnover rate as a rookie suggest he may not advance much in the next year or two -- most rookies with that statistical profile make little or no progress in Year 2. It is likely those numbers will regress to the mean, so even if he develops in other areas his PER is likely to stay in the same neighborhood.

Amir's situation was completely different playing for a veteran team in a win now mode. Ed can barely get minutes on a annual lottery team so I think that's a tough comparison. Both needed minutes to showcase but the hand was stacked against Amir while Ed won't even put enough effort to pull his chair closer to the table to look at his cards.
