High expectations for Anthony Davis

No one is doubting Anthony Davis' immediate impact in the NBA, but one pro scout has very high expectations of the soon-to-be No. 1 pick. According to Fox Sports, an NBA scout who claims to have seen Davis play 75+ times says Davis will single-handedly add 20 wins to the team that drafts him.
That’s because Davis has all the important tools in a power forward. He’s 6-foot-9 with a 7-4 wingspan. He runs the floor and finishes exceptionally well. He blocks shots and dunks with relative ease. He’s explosive, intelligent and extremely smooth. “Really good things happen when the ball is in his hands,” says one scout, “yet he forces nothing and plays within the team concept. Plus, he’s a good person. He’s the total package.” He’s also a winner, having led a loaded Kentucky team to the national championship in his one college season.
I guess it is possible for a 20-win turnaround for whatever team he ends up on, it just depends which team that is. The Charlotte Bobcats? Not happening.
