NBA Role: active, glass-eater • UnderDOG

(Big Bad Bossman) Ed Davis is a new-school-old-school forward w/ high activity on the glass; new school aspects of Ed Davis: up-top finisher, tip dunker, screen-setter-roll-man; old school aspects of Ed Davis: talks s****, takes hard fouls and doesn’t back down from any challenge; Ed Davis is someone you need in your lineup – always protects his PG (& the rim); if you forget to put a body on Ed Davis, he’ll crush you on the offensive glass – high volume rebounder who’s quick & athletic w/ textbook box-outs; a developing catch and finisher in the PnR, Ed Davis always flexes* after scoring through contact; lefty, line drive hooks come out of the woodwork every now and again but Ed Davis knows his role is to provide activity, help side D and intensity up front; low-key, fits in perfectly w/ the Blazers, will his role expand (or decrease) in 2017-18?
