[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Big Baby makes me crazy!! : On a positive note, Big Baby is not getting his shot blocked nearly as much
this season as compared to previous seasons. He's getting smarter.

yes, this has been a much needed improvement. in many respects the guy almost had to start over last year. all the while sheed was making c's fans everywhere throw up inside their mouths and all over their livings rooms, davis was treated like crap for a single transgression.
then he had to subjugate his game to "fit in" with sheed's unending desire to hoist errant long bombs.
davis is about right on target for what i thought he should be this year, a 12 and 6 guy while playing 28 minutes a night.
many others, including dudder, long ago declared davis "is what he is" and isn't going to get any better, and duddo even asked me specifically, "what, do you expect he's going to improve his free throw shooting?" when imploring me on what he felt was an obviously tapped out (for potential) davis.
and i said "why yes i do!". and he has. he should be a career 75%+ shooter from the stripe.
and for the future, he's never going to be the conventional definition of "great", but he does off stat sheet things few other players will do. he could be the post KG starter, and he could easily start on many teams right now.
