Hard to say  because their games are different ... I believe Davis is a better outside shooter.  King's injury his frosh year at UW really set him back.  However, Kobe was rounding into his old self the last 1/4 of the 2019 season.  I believe we will see a vastly improved, more confident & healthy Kobe King come this November.

Comparing when Kobe entered into his senior year and with Johny entering his.  Kobe was a better shooter than Johny by a pretty large margin.  Johny is a better scorer and defender.  Both were/are very explosive and could carry their teams to wins.  Both have a huge desire to win and will do whatever it takes to win.  Kobe would defer to his teammates at times and when it was time to take over, he would.  Johny is on the attack from the opening tip.  

I don't think you can say which one is better quite honestly.  Both are hugely talented players that have benefited from a really good Central program.  The will to win in both of these kids is off the charts.  They are highly competitive and would rip your heart out even if you were playing marbles.

Thanks Coach for the colorful comparison of both players !

I saw Johnny Davis vs Marshfield in a game late last November in which Davis was on fire, scoring 20 of Central's 40 first-half points.  He finished with 31 pts, including 13 made shots from the floor.  

And, yes, his all-out hustle, energy, determination & competetiveness  was on display from the opening tip-off 'til the final whistle.

Kobe's injury definitely set him back. I sure hope he gets back his legs.

One for basketball and one for football.

Johnny Davis is the type of recruit UW needs. He is a high upside guy that is still raw in some areas. He'll be recruited heavily, but not by any blue bloods, which is the type of recruitment UW can win.

You can do that when you have a boatload of open scholarships...and just one current verbal.

I like that. Only wish it came a bit sooner. But GG made the right choice here.

An interesting move to offer Jordan now, but he has a better offer sheet than other guys UW has offered in the past. This would appear to put UW in the drivers seat for both guys, but we'll see.
