I know its preseason, but come on with this guy.

Tonight's line: 29 points (9-20, 11-11), 9 boards, 1 assist, 2 steals, 4 blocks, and 3 TOs.

Yep. It's why all my keeper teams have this guy locked and loaded. B-)

About the only thing that sucked about tonight's line, is the fact no one got to see it. :-t

I have 5th pick in my upcoming draft and I have been mocking with Curry, Love, CP3 if he falls to me. But I keep looking at Davis after this pre season and thinking why not? Is this too much of a reach?
All the guys I mentioned have injury histories.
Have I gone completely mad or am I just buying into the pre season hype machine too much?

IMO, he's as big of an injury risk as the guys on your list. Davis missed quite a bit of games last season due to several mishaps too. He'll only be 20 for most of the upcoming season, so plenty of risk still exists.

As for the preseason, temper expectations. Gordon and Evans haven't played and NBA defenses haven't kicked it into regular season gear yet. I'm as high as anyone you'll find on Davis, but I wouldn't take him ahead of the guys on your list. Now if it's several picks later, I'd gladly agree.

Yeah I even told a friend to temper expectations cos EJ and Reke are out but I havent even listened to my own advice lol!!Gotta love the pre season huh!

I will probably still draft K Love or Curry, still cant decide which one im going but im pretty sure both will be available come draft day.

Anybody that knows what they are doing wont let him last until pick 33 lol. We all know this, but it is pretty sad that he doesn't get any respect on the ESPN website. I've thought about taking him early round 2 if he is still there. I would consider myself very lucky if I could land Davis or Wall with my 2nd round pick.

Agreed, took him at 12th for the first round. After last night, pretty happy I took the chance on him.
