    Can Anthony Davis get some shine?

    With everyone talking about Chris Paul, Paul George, and Kevin Love's hot starts to the season, the slept on guy is Anthony Davis. This kid is wrecking it on both ends of the floor, and this is just the start since he is only 20 years old.

    23.0 PPG
    11.5 RPG
    4.3 BPG

    Quietly leading the league with a 31.17 PER through the first week and a half, and has his team at .500.

    I'll be the first to admit I didn't think this guy had superstar potential, but he clearly does if he keeps this up, improves, and stays healthy.

    I didn't think Davis woUld be this good, especially this early.

    They could have something really special with this guy. Maybe even a once in a lifetime type of center.

    I knew he would be this good and was pretty adamant about it. Dude is a monster. Mini mix of KG and Bill Russell.

    I saw the defense side as a rook, but his offensive development has been very impressive.

    there was a thread not long ago where most people claimed his offense would keep him from ever being an elite player. guy is a monster on both ends right now @ 20.

    His defense was trash last year, his offense was what was surprising last year. This year hes been a total different animal on both ends

    wasn't expecting this type of development this early. He could be a complete beast. Lets see how he develops.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    IIRC last week we already concluded he would be a HOF.

    I didn't think he would be this good on offense. I thought he'd be an 18-20 PPG scorer that could reach 22 in his best years.

    Well when you have a PER of 31+ its almost a certainty. Him regressing to 20 and 12 with 3 blocks and 3 assists and maybe 1.5 steals a game is borderline superstar numbers. That's extremely impressive for a player his age.
