I say let Frank make that decision. Drummond is really young and the NBA game can be complex. No need to discourage the guy right out of the gate.


Bingo.

*high fives*


Good news with Houston first, Omer Asik is pretty much their only center, along with the newly acquired Cole Aldrich. Asik is a pretty good defensive center and rebounder so we should see a decent look to see how much Monroe has improved and Drummond should get some good opportunities to perform well against Aldrich.

Hopefully with the Rockets making such a huge roster change this close to the start of the season the Pistons can catch them discombobulated. Good point about the Monroe/Asik match up. I am really looking forward to seeing Monroe grow into a star.

Sidebar: do any of these guys have nicknames? I miss them.

Good part:
Quote:
On draft day, one knock against Drummond was his work ethic, but several Pistons praised his effort this summer.

"He works extremely hard," said Corey Maggette, a 13-year veteran.

Frank also praised Drummond's work ethic: "He is working extremely hard. He has been extremely committed. He wants to learn, looks you in the eye. He is eager to learn. He has definitely made progress."


and

Quote:
... and Maggette has become Drummond's mentor: "This is a guy who is 19 and is still learning this game. He needs somebody around him. He needs a big brother, and I'm going to help anyway I can."

Quick question for you guys. Has Greg Monroe moved to PF to accomodate Andre Drummond yet? Having those 2 in the paint is a very great start to build a team. You should have a nice pick and roll team with Brandon Knight and those big guys.

Great question.

I think they will try to get them out there together when the match-up dictates as such. Drummond is so raw offensively that his only goal is to play solid defense. Monroe is a great passer and should excel in the pick and roll.

Not yet. It appears that Drummond will start the season in a reserve role at C, with our starting front court being Prince-Maxiell-Monroe. Not sure how much Drummond/Monroe play together to start the year.

Well Singler and English really impressed me. Drummond did not get enough minutes IMO.

1 game closer to lottery.

lol detfan sounds like me last year.

tough one to lose. team's just so young.

I wish we'd stop starting Maxiell. I truly believe a frontcourt of Drummond-Monroe would be more effective right now.

Seriously the only way to talent is the lottery. NBA is broken system

All the vets need to go. Dump salary.


Draft Shabazz Muhammad


PG- Knight
SG- Stuckey
SF- Muhammad--can play SG too
PF- Monroe
C- Drummond

Was nice to see Daye and Charlie V not play

and to the above post, a top pick would be nice, but I don't know if this team's bad enough. There's more talent than last year and last year we got #9.

I'd love to sign a SG or PF, but tonight's Palace crowd didn't help matters.

That is why I want Muhammad. He would be perfect fit with Knight, Monroe and Drummond
