[QUOTE]So what you're saying is that there isn't a better upgrade out there than BBD??

isn't the burden on the PROPOSERS OF THE BBD DISPOSAL to bring up the "better" replacements than him??!@$$#@!@
who is it that you're going to bring in for similar cap money, who can shoot adequately outside and from the line, has the bulk to play 5 as well as 4, can body around the biggest and best centers in the league and get them off their spot? NO, he has never and will never be able to jump with them, but his game is to outmuscle them in lower body strength and he does it very well. add to that the fact that he is nearly universally regarded as the best big man help defender in the league and leads the league in charges taken and suddenly you are talking about replacing a player who not only has a lot of actual stat sheet skills, but tons of off stat sheet intangible benefits to the C's. or am i missing something?
so who in the league does this? so far duddler has come up with deanderthal jordan of the clippers- an absolute laugher. so bring us to the light, who do you want to get to replace davis?
alas, davis is young, still improving, may never be the "ultimate player"- needs to improve in defensive rebounding. i have faith that he will get better, maybe not to an elite level, but to observe his superior footwork on both post defense and help defense, i have to think there is hope that he will become better at the box out on a nightly basis. as it is, any given night, he can be observed plowing his man out of the way quite a bit and rebounds drop easily to other people. not every play, but he does do this.
and, not to be redundnat, but davis is a value, at $3m, likely to end up being paid 5 to 6M max in the new CBA, whenever that happens. So, you want to jettison this cheaply paid 2nd round bargain basement energy player in favor of WHATTT?? we still need a back up 4 and 5 like davis because jerlame is defunct and perkins is an unknown quantity. so you are taking away our best bench player in favor of?????????????????????? what.
please just end the suspense and tell us who we are bringing in for davis who has upside, not a horrible contract, is young, etc. WHO BE IT? and don't say hanragody.
