I think if Shaq and Antoine Walker got together Brokeback Mountain style and had a kid, a kid that got the good parts of each Walker and Shaq, Glenn Davis is what you would see.
I think he will find a place in the NBA because he's not your typical undersized big man. His sheer mass makes up for his lack of height, but it also hurts him because he's not in tip top shape or conditioning. But if...a big IF, he can get in better shape and not have to ask his coach to call any more time outs, so he can suck enough wind to go out there and play some more minutes then...and only then will he be ready to take the next step into the NBA.
But what impressed me the most about him was his hands. He goes up with two hands and snatched rebounds down so easily. Now when his opponents are all 7 foot then that might change. It's hard to tell, because Barkley was such a good rebounder as well and he was 6-4 and a pillsbury doughboy as well.
Then the range and ball handling abilities that he has, you just don't see guys that large with those two skills. I mean this is a football RB turned basketball player. The first jumper I saw him take in the tourney, I thought he was insane and to my surprise it went in. I was left sitting there scratching my head. Then he got the ball at the point line, I was like ok...turnover, but I was shocked again when he dribbled by a guy and got to the basket.
Very intriguing prospect. I know I'll keep my eye on him next season for sure and see if he makes any of the needed adjustments in his game.
