This guy is having the best preseason of any rookie.
disgusting! who saw the block he had on on the raptors in their first preseason game (ed davis i think) straight up spike. reminds me of a young mcdyess, denver version
This kid is looking like a young beast out there. If he keeps his head straight, we may say “Who is Dwight Howard?” in a couple years.
McDyess is a really good comparison.
It’s your birthday so I know you want to riiide out,
Even if we only go to myyy house
Sip mo- weezy as we sit upon myyy couch
but I know you want to cryyy out
You say you want passion I think you found it
Get ready for action
Don’t be astounded
We switchin’ positions
You feel surrounded
Just tell me where you want your gift, girl
Hes having a good pre season the cavs should have picked Harrison Barnes,Jeremy Lamb or this guy over waiters possibly pery jones too but thats a gamble. Harrison Barnes will win rookie of the year and have the best career
Sweet, he’s looking good so far.
Pistons are coming back!!!! Knight Monroe Drummond all fell to the Pistons as teams passed on them. Drummond is in the same conversation with Anthony Davis when all the media calling Drummond a for sure bust. Pistons can make the playoffs this year and easily be contending in 3 years. Monroe and Drummond will be the 2nd best frontcourt after Lakers.
I agree he is affecting the game without a play call, just him running the floor, finding open spots, offensive rebounds, and setting picks. Anthony Davis needs a bunch of shots and iso’s to hit 20ppg and Drummond got his working off of his teammates
Dude is gonna be a beast.
Easy there buddy, you’re making a lot of bold predictions.
talk about huge expectations.
All I thought watching this video is “what an underachieving, overpaid bum Charlie Villenueva is.”
looks like Greg Oden out there. What should the Pistons do now when they have so many big men?
This sequence reminds me of young Amar’e when he first came in the league
This guy is definitely having a great preseason. People were putting him and Anthony Davis down saying that neither would be much because big men take longer to develop. Well…not these big men! I have to admit I was doubtful about Drummond but for a good reason. He didn’t really assert himself and show much at the collegiate level. But you still have to take into consideration how young both him and Davis are, how quick they are to learn, and their athleticism.
That’s not true!!! Davis is on a team where damn near EVERYBODY is new, are in the middle of learning to play with each other, and are lacking a good, stable PG. Drummond was able to come onto a team that is a hell of a lot more stable in its framework and retained a lot of its players. Davis has come close in all his games to acheiving double-doubles (most likely would’ve if Monty didn’t take him out). There is no comparison between these two; you have to look at the situations they are in. Yes, Drummond is doing better than expected and of course this kid is talented and has a high celing for potential, but don’t try to make this seem like he’s better equipped for the league than Davis!
Slow down…he’s not really in the same convo as Anthony Davis, but he’s good nonetheless.
