I jsut don't think we can afford a bust pick right now. This franchise is losing and is already a joke. I just don't know if we can risk the high reward/high risk player in our situation right now
Here is what I think about Drummond. Very high bust potential. He is in fact almost guaranteed to be considered a bust in his rookie year because he is a project. He has a lot of learning to do and the NBA is not an easy place to develop. Watching some of his games this season I had to look for Drummond to find him on the court. Things aren't going to suddenly become easier for him in the NBA. I would say the Bobcats are probably a bad fit because we don't have the patience to work with someone that is a project. We think we do sometimes, but we don't.
Now here is the good part. There is only one player in this draft who has the potential to be a Dwight Howard like dominant NBA center and that is Drummond. He is one of the youngest players in college basketball and is already 250 pounds to go with great speed and mobility. That is pretty hard to pass up because there aren't to many centers like that even if he does have some things to work on.
I think the best plan is to do good evaluations in the interviews. If we get the second or third pick which is the likely case, I would probably take either Drummond or MKG. I wouldn't mind trading back to three and taking who ever is left if the compensation was a jermey lamb - royce white caliber player.
The guy has the potential to be a dwight howard/ andrew bynum type....he has so much potential and already has an nba body...but is a terrible free throw shooter...hardly any offensive game...and doesnt look motivated at all...like someone earlier said the guy is so dominant he sawn uconn wasnt that good he shouldve demanded the ball.....he'll be picked purely on potential and he is a project...high risk high reward but idk if we can afford another play who doesnt pan out..the guy seems like he doesnt care about basketball he doesnt care about being great
Very good news!
I like it, not because I would take him at #2 or #3, but because it makes a very good chance someone would trade up for him and we could get a pretty good deal if we dont land Davis at #1.
exactly why I said this is good news.
1) We have the option to take him
2) Someone else takes him and leaves talent for us
3)Someone falls in love and trades up
When you are playing on a team of chuckers he is lucky to average what he did. Thank God he is declaring so if the ping pong balls don't land our way we can still either get this good talent or trade back with someone who wants to move up for a shot at him.
