Anthony Davis is the consensus top player available in the 2012 NBA Draft and front office personnel are very bullish on his potential.
Not only is Davis an excellent two-way talent and has been lauded for his character and commitment to improving his game.
Davis "is probably going to be better than Blake Griffin," said one Western Conference general manager.
Another GM believes Davis can even be better than Kevin Garnett.
"There's not one doubt in my mind that he's going to be way better than Blake Griffin," the second GM said. "I don't even think it's going to be close. I think he might end up being a little better than KG.
"He may be the quiet, humble [player] who's not as great as Tim Duncan, but [he'll be] that kind of a person, and maybe have the game to back it up. I don't think he gets to that [Duncan] level, but he's going to be pretty good."
On the lower end of the spectrum, Davis has been compared to Marcus Camby.
"I have times when I wonder, 'Is he Marcus Camby, a great defensive player who alters the game defensively' " but doesn't have much offense? he said. "And then there are days when I say, 'Oh, no, he has much more offense to his game. He has this, he has that.' Plus, I think Anthony Davis is a pretty cool kid."
