Davies is playing himself into a late first round NBA draft pick.
Sounds like Davies did alright. I sure don't understand how the
teams are divided. Players from Oregon and Utah playing for the East team?What's up with that?
Yea exactly idablu,Why was Davies playing for the East Team? That's a
little weird how they divide it like that.
Davies will not get drafted, don't kid yourself, his skills are very
limited and he would not make any NBA team.
Agree with Idablu. It seems that everyone is backwards in this article. Guys
from the West playing for the East, and guys from the East playing for the West.
Does not make a lot of sense. If you're not gonna take East-West into
account, by not just call it the "All-America Classic" and have a Blue
team and a Red team?
Will Clyburn. That name sounds really familiar. He didn't happen to play
for some team in the West before transferring, did he?Glad to hear
that Davies got the chance to play one more "college" game. I hope he
has a bright future in Europe if he continues to play, or whatever other
endeavor he decides to embark upon.
I think that Davies has some good Offensive back to the basket moves.. I like
his length and his aggressiveness on defense... Whether he is drafted or not, I
don't know... It's an "iffy" case... Many experts have him as
a mid to late second rounder... I guess we'll see in a month or two,
won't we???If he doesn't play in the NBA, I think that he
is a shoe in for Europe, which might not be a bad gig for 5 years or so.On a personal level, I really like the kid... He is a fighter and when
he is committed to something he stays the course... The way he handled his
suspension will always be an example for me, my family and my friends... The kid
was Classy with a capital "C"...
dumprake,Don't feed the trolls.
Dumprake... Must be a Ute? I doubt Davies will be drafted, so like many Cougs
he will probably be in a European league.As to making in the NBA,
here's what ESPN's Chad Ford said about him in the Portsmouth Seniors
Invitational "Davies is both a good athlete and has more skill than you
might think at first glance. He has a solid face-the-basket game and a pretty
high basketball IQ ... He was one of the few guys NBA scouts seemed excited
about after the first two days of the event."But a limited skill
set? He's good on steals, rebounds, and points, and even throws in some
blocks and good passes. Not astounding in any one thing, but good in many and
not limited to any one thing. Of all of our guys with the exception of Haws, he
was the most versatile, and one of the most athletic. Undersized for a Center,
but could pull a good Power Forward.
