See my note on "Ligamentous Laxity"
Some people can land on a guys foot and it not affect them nearly as much as some - see Curry, Stephon.

As others have said though, AD's upside is much higher because he actually has a very impressive looking jumper and a solid handle for his height.
Their frames do remind me of one another though.
When Camby came into the league he was all offense and a struggling rebounder. Somewhere in his development, he stopped focusing on offense and went strictly defense/rebounding. He had a great inside game and a reliable jumper, very similar to the skills you point out in Davis.
In fact, their rookie year per36 numbers are nearly identical.http://www.basketball-reference.com/pla ... 02&y2=2013
