I don't like the argument that since Dale Davis rarely played last year, that he can't add value this year. He's a defensive specialist who is very strong and effective against bigger players. Here are just a few Dale stats from last year to get you guys to start thinking about what he can do: When he was on the court, we got 53.3% of the rebounds, vs. 48.7% when he was off. The % improvement with him was equally split between offensive and defensive boards. We allowed an eFG of 44% when he was out there and 48% when he wasn't. We outscored our opponents by 6.4 points per 100 possessions with him vs. 4.5 points without him. We committed fewer fouls and consequently, gave up less free throws. 41% of his shot attempts were dunks or tip-ins. He played well with CB, Rip, Tay, + either Sheed or Dyess.
