Well, it's been almost eight months since the 2010 draft and I hate to say that I told you so, but Monroe is the real deal. I was salivating after Monroe dropped to the the Pistons. Not to knock Cousins, a good player but the second coming of Ron Artest. So, for all of you folks who wanted Cousins over Monroe, I would like to hear your reassessment of the Monroe/Cousins pick. I am assuming that Monroe's toughness and versatility are no longer question marks for anyone who have witnessed his game. By the way, Monroe has been getting scarily better each game. He still have things to work on, not much though. With a good off-season conditioning program and daily visits to the weight room, oh boy. Strengths: Help side defense, rebounding (both ends of the floor), offensive capability in the high post, passing, foot work for a big guy is outstanding Weaknesses: Low post game needs work, athleticism.
