That to me does not make me think: "ed davis".
4 times all defense, an allstar 1 year (during a golden age for pf's), solid 14ppg 10rb guy playing w 2 guys who were always first and second option. When Jordan left it was the pippen and horrace show and they were still very competitive. 4 times NBA champions, 6 times NBA finals.
And HG was never a project. He was NBA solid right away. Just don't see the comparison.
