ESPN's Chad Ford just posted an interesting tidbit about Terrence Jones. Ford comps his well-rounded game with Lamar Odom's game. Per Ford:
I think he was surrounded by so much talent at Kentucky that people just don't get how special a player he can be
Speaking of comps, I'm not so sure that Davis doesn't comp with Olajuwon, as some have suggested, especially if you believe, as I do, that A.O would have been just as effective as a PF in the NBA as a C.
As for Sampson, there are many who blame Bill Fitch for ruining Ralph Sampson by playing him at PF, contributing to knee problems. Olajuwan was a much better athlete than Sampson was and better equipped to deal with the Tom Chambers and Terry Cummings of the world. Sampson was much more effective in the pivot, and IMHO, had he remained there, he would have at least come close to reaching the expectations of him as he entered the NBA.
