NBA Comparison: Rodney Rogers

Aran Smith - 3/22/2006

Strengths: A unique player because of his unreal body strength. Most basketball players are not built like tanks ... Charismatic personality, similar to Shaq ... Excellent feel for the game ... His physical strength is virtually unparalleled for a player his height ... Has the ability to physically overpower players, but also has the skills and finesse of a smaller player ... Has tremendous body control, very soft hands and surprisingly quick feet, which could be attributed to his days on the gridiron ... He sets up strong on the block and establishes position immediately and can seal off players with a simple use of his off arm. Opponents cant get in front of him ... Excels at squaring up from 12 feet and taking bigger players off the dribble ... Really understands how to use his body to create shots against bigger and more athletic players ... Does a good job of passing when doubled, seeing teammates on the wing ... Hell surprise you with some of the things he can do both as a post player but also in the open floor ... Davis will step out of the paint and knock dow perimeter shots, has range out to 18 feet ... His mechanics are solid and has good form and knows when to pull up ... A complete team player and is very coachable as well as being a leader in the locker room ... Strong personality. Very poised in interviews and has a good demeanor about him ... Could guard some centers on the next level due to his strength ... Has great touch around the basket, especially with contact ... Has worked hard on his body chiseling 20-25 pounds from his 330 pound freshman physique ...

Weaknesses: As a shooter, he doesnt elevate all that well on his jumper and is content with being a flat footed set shooter ... With his 300 plus pounds packed on a 6-8 frame, he is not tremendously fast in the open floor ... Lacks great length at 6-8 and medium wing span, this gets compounded some by his lack of leaping ability ... Does not get great lift when he jumps ... Conditioning and stamina could be improved ... If he lost 15-20 pounds it would help his mobility and lift some, but his game is catered to power ... He needs to explode upward for rebounds instead of relying on his huge frame to box out two players at a time ... He must improve on getting back on defense and improving his stamina so teams dont have an advantage with Davis lagging in transition ... With his lack of explosiveness he's susceptible to having his shots blocked by weak side help ... Not a real shot blocker but a space eater inside ...

Notes: Nicknamed "Big Baby" ... Was a dominant football player in high school, (played defensive lineman and halfback!) and could easily have had a career in the NFL if he chose to ...
