so i've read that sullinger has post game but davis does not. that's not true. davis has a good post game and can use both hands. davis has great foot work in the post too. so does sully.
then i read that sully's a good rebounder but davis is not.
shall we peruse the stats? sullinger in 27 minutes goes for 12.6 and 7.8 boards. davis in 31 minutes goes for 13.1 and 7.2 boards. davis is just coming off of a broken foot. he averaged much more points last year. both men are playing for horrible teams who really have no center.
i'd say the stats are a bit inconclusive. sullinger is shooting 2 points worse field goals than davis- 43%, which is horrendous for a 4.
i agree that i like sullinger's personality better than davis. but davis did some great stuff for us in nut cupping time, things i haven't seen any celtic player do since bird, cowens, silas. sully has some of that in him too. he also has 2 back surgeries under his belt and he's 22.
hard to make heads or tails of "who is better". i do know that davis, for a 6 foot 7 guy could give fits to duncan, bynum when bynum was releveant, shaq and all the 7 foot 300 pounders you could throw his way. they consistently under-performed with davis guarding them. can sullinger do that? can sullinger's back take doing that? not sure. yet to be revealed. is sully quick enough to play 4? not sure. davis really shined playing the 4 2 yrs ago and then last year until hurt and SOUNDLY outplayed 7-2 roy hibbert in the playoffs last year as undersized 5....
