Is Anthony Davis really the next Tim Duncan?

People are saying Anthony Davis is the next Tim Duncan. I've seen all the analyzation on him and read a lot about him and watched him for a good amount of games. Honestly, I just don't see where they are getting that comparison. Both are similar on defense because they are long and big and can block many shots. But Anthony Davis has no post game whatsoever. When Tim got drafted he already had a good post game, a mid range jumper, plus his defense and shot blocking ability. Duncan's only big weakness when he got drafted was his free throw shooting.

    IMO even if Anthony Davis develops a post game, he still wouldn't be as dominate as Tim Duncan. I think he's ceiling is Alonzo Mourning while worst case scenario is Marcus Camby.

    No. There will be no the next duncan. Tim is Tim, MJ is MJ, Lebron is Lebron and Anthony Davis will and always be Anthony davis. For a 19 years old player. He is so young that he can learn any right moves as a pf or any other position.

    The guy hasnt played a second of NBA ball yet. So until then. Hes a nobody. Im so sick and tired of every year some big shot out of college being proclaimed "the next MJ, the next larry bird, the next Shaq, and then the player ends up being a bust.

    If he has no post game then he ain't the next Tim Duncan.

    No, there's no guarantee that he's going to be the great player everyone says he is.But he probably will be a very good player.
