    Exactly. Money money money. People like Cuban just want to keep the money in house.

    Not sure if Davis is ready to defend on the Gasol brothers or Ibaka...

    I think Lebron is much more capable than Davis.

    At this point, LeBron is better able to keep the Gasols from getting to their spots.

    Yes, he's 2 inches shorter 40 lbs heavier, stronger, and more experienced.

    Melo and James have been in the game for years. No disrespect to Davis, but he is very young even though he has that incredible length, talent and athleticism, he needs to learn how to guard PF/C of that caliber IMO.

    Better able isn't the same as actually going to do it though. He'll give a show of it, but LeBron would get shots put over his head if he tries to man up to Marc Gasol. He'll have to use leverage, which means getting even lower just to keep them him getting position. It's a mismatch either way and will require people coming in on double teams.

    Well, it is either shoot a jumper over someone or have them be able to get low post position and do whatever they want.

    Tend to agree. Not to mention Lebron brings so much more on the offensive part of the game it's not even funny. To compare James and Davis at this point is laughable IMO. If you watch Davis, he loses position quickly on the block and he looks more eager to sprint out on the fast break and let the smaller guys rebound more than fight for the rebound and send an outlet.

    Who said lebron and Davis couldn't play on the floor at the same time?

    O and I've watched every USA game this year, and I have never seen davis run to the offensive side of the floor before a rebound is made. Especially if the ball is in his vicinity.

    Coach K Said Davis can't play at all unless the game is out of hand if we want to be realistic here.

    Correct. And the bronze medal game is at 5AM. Feels like 2008 all over again.

    Those aren't necessarily mutual exclusive. Especially since there's two of them.

    Also, I really don't think LeBron is guarding anyone ine the post. Not before Love or Melo. Not unless there's some kinda switch or zone.

    I think that part has more to do with him playing in non-game critical situations. He only sees the court in blowouts. I see him doing a lot of letting smaller guys slip right by rather than go for a block. But not fighting for boards? That I haven't seen. He hasn't gone way out of his area much, no. But there's no need to. When the ball is near the basket and he's able to tap to keep the rock alive, he fights enough.

    Not telling us anything we don't already know.

    Still though...

  23. #1223
    ^ Yeah, LeBron is more useful defensively playing the perimeter. Use his athleticism there to jump passing routes and disrupt ball-handlers. I'd like to see someone penetrate the lane with Westbrook, Iggy, and LeBron on the floor.

    e: He is just versatile enough to play anywhere but center, on offense and defense.

    No one said that Davis is going to play against spain, all I have seen anyone say was Davis would be helpful in defending the gasol bros. especially since Tyson is likely to be in foul trouble after a few minutes of play, that damn guy.

    Do you need a public address ? He didn't play much when we played Spain and it didn't count until the game was out of hand; not against anyone else. He publicly said he doesn't want to have to depend on Davis and its no disrespect. The kid is 19. It's the most important game and there are far better players than Davis to put on the court. But said I meant that he has clearly shown that Davis isn't playing under circumstances other than a blow out.
