08:06 AM ET 01.17 | Kevin Garnett got his first glimpse of New Orleans Hornets rookie Anthony Davis on Wednesday, and he came away impressed. Davis posted a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double as the Hornets snapped the Celtics six-game winning streak, 90-78. "That kid is long," said Garnett. "I think he makes me like a midget, man. "He's a freak of nature. The kid's going to be really good. The kid's going to be really good." Davis said he grew up watching LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, which means Garnett was already well into his career by the time the 19-year-old started tuning into hoops. ... Now Garnett has expectations for Davis as well. It is not every day that he throws around a term "freak of nature" for teenagers who have only played in 26 NBA games.

QUOTE(#6):

Davis will be far better than Dwight Howard.

Agree. He has already surpassed Howard as he has shown the ability to shoot free throws. So he isn't a liability at the stripe. He also doesn't appear to be a head case. If he keeps improving his all around game, and stays healthy, he'll easily be better than Howard.
