    You're confusing drama with excitement again.

    I went with the rebounding theory.
    He's a Moses Malone type rebounder who racks up boards tipping in shots two or three times befor they fall.
    ...Dude's beastie!

    I think he'll be awesome this year but will lack the all-around game to beat out the three guys who are ultimately selected before him. I think he'll be top-5 or 6 but still a year away from being top 3. Another factor to consider is that he'll likely be sharing shots and touches with two other bigs with Smith now in the mix.
    Drummond will get his points off of defense, rebounds and garbage.
    ...which is TOTALLY fine by me and makes me pumped just thinking about it!

    No way will Drummond settle for being a dude who only shoots inches from the rim.

    If Drummond can get north of 12 rpg with 12-14 ppg (coming off vicious dunks) 2 blocks while being known for picking PG's pockets for dunks, he can't make 3rd team?

    He only averaged 32.3 MPG this year but he played around the amount I was picturing when I asked the questions so I say they're legit.

    23 out of 26 respondents to the poll were correct. Congratulations to:

    I have begun my search for a replacement avatar. This was a difficult decision for me to make, but I need to make a change. I have great respect for Maurice and appreciate his hard work.

    Actually, I guess we still have a chance. I've called this prematurely because they haven't announced the All-NBA teams yet.

    That would even confuse me. I'd probably get into debates with myself.

    Gotta keep work life separate. I don't even have a Facebook page for that reason.

    Random off topic question - how is it living in Chicago? My long term plan is to go and work in the US and I have narrowed it down, pretty much, to Chicago/New York/Boston.
