He's an elite finisher at the rim, good shooter for a big man, and he's definitely a great defender. However is passing isn't that great, and his creation in both the post and facing up to score is good but far from great.
I don't think he can win anything without an absolutely great wing or PG to generate offense for him. That's why I don't think I can put him over LeBron, Kawih, Durant, Steph Curry or James Harden.
However what he brings to the table is pretty unique in the NBA these days. With the Rockets having no bigs on the floor he might feast under the basket. And even against the Clippers I wouldn't count it out, since the best players are in the perimeter. That might, however, effect shot creation for Davis.
YOU could say the same for tim duncan and many ppl on rgm consider him better than kobe bryant.
YOu could say the same for Shaq, Giannis, Nikola Jokic etc.
Shaq created a ton of things for others. His gravity inside, his presence was absolutely off the charts. You took one part of the post about Davis and forgot the rest cause the point is much bigger than what you bolded.
Actually Jokic's passing skills are fantastic to create offense.
Giannis has maybe the gravity inside. But after the 3-0 tonight I might think I overrated him a lot.
San Antonio ran a ton of offense trough Duncan. And he had no great wing in 03 when he won it all (at least not superstar level anyways).
Sorry, but I actually watched a ton of NBA during the 2000s. Even much more than I do nowadays.
