Biography Anthony Davis Power Forward Kentucky

Physical Ability: The reason I am not sold on Davis’s physical ability is simple. He was 6 foot 2 until his junior year of high school. Another concern I have with Davis is that some scouts have him weighed in at 200 pounds while others have him weighed in at 240. Anthony Davis has the size. I just do not see him as a physical defensive presence on the court.
Intangibles: I would like to see better shooting accuracy out of Drummond when watching him on film.
Shooting Accuracy: Anthony Davis has the ability to drop 30 points a game I would like to see more consistency from short, medium, and long range shots.
My thoughts on Anthony Davis
Andre Drummond, Anthony Davis, and Harrison Barnes are all 1A, 1B, and 1C competing for the top pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. All 3 players are competing for that top pick and all 3 players should be top 3 locks.
