Norway grad high on Davis
June 25, 2012 - Burt Angeli
Norway High School graduate and basketball expert Ed Weiland likes the prospects of Kentucky star Anthony Davis.
”Honestly he’s the best prospect I’ve seen since 2007 when Kevin Durant vs. Greg Oden was a legitimate debate,” Weiland wrote on hoopsanalyst.com. “There hasn’t been a big guy in the last three decades who was this good as a freshman.”
Weiland expects Davis (6-foot-10, 7-foot-5 wingspan) to play more center than power forward in the NBA.
“He has little in the way of a perimeter game and his main skill is blocking shots,” Weiland said. “All those things add up to Anthony Davis playing more center than power forward.
“The only issue would be his slight frame. At 222 pounds he’ll have to add some weight. Because he’s young and has already handled a legendary growth spurt with little, if any, loss in quickness and athleticism, my guess is that he can put on 30 pounds or so without losing effectiveness.”
