Well, you're also a bit older than 20, eh?
I love this kid. I really do. ‘We’re All Ready to Go’ | THE OFFICIAL SITE OF THE DETROIT PISTONS
How lucky were the Pistons to get this kid? I wouldn't be surprised if he plays the 4 spot more than Monroe this year. He might be the next Shawn Kemp.
Once I heard they signed Sheed on to coach, I knew they would work together, but I still got so excited reading this article.
Lets be honest here, if I had the opportunity to spend time with Rasheed Wallace, I would eat that up and hang off his shirt. Possibility of being a little creepy.
Another nice one from the DetNews. I'm not a regular reader of Pistons only sites like Detriot Bad Boys, but I haven't heard one thing about Monroe being around this summer. Andre Drummond taking initiative to get new Pistons in the gym | The Detroit News
Maybe Monroe isn't feeling it... like Boozer in Cleveland. Sent from my SPH-L710 using Tapatalk 2
Not sure Drum should be working on his 15 footer (or that Sheed's skillset is transferrable). Master the post and FTs first.
You are not "getting" Andre Drummond.
Isn't the free throw line about 15 feet from the basket? Maybe they got confused by the instructions.
Great article! Why Andre Drummond Will Emerge as the Next Star NBA Big Man in 2013-14 | Bleacher Report
can't believe they say he didn't get to play with a pick and roll guard last year. he had the greatest hook up guard ever. dpoy is very attainable within the next two years.
Being a "rim protector" and being a good defensive player are 2 different things. Drummond is on Charlie G's level defensively when he has to cover someone 1 on 1. He is one of the easiest guys in the L to confuse defensively.
Me thinks Sheed will help Dre work through this issue.
I enjoyed reading the article on Drummond. But a few corrections. Drummond did not get better during last season. Actually, his game declined somewhat on the offensive end as the season went on - because we simply did not use him enough. Contrast this to Monroe, who absolutely got better during his rookie season, from constant reps that come with extensive playing time. Some would argue that Bynum was in there enough with Drummond to count that as having a pick and roll guy in with him. Not really. Our bench was horrid, and sure, we had that one play to go to - but that was it. Drummond was in with a very stale, non-working offense most of the season. We did get to see him, finally, paired with Monroe toward the end of the season. Not enough though to really make it work, and of course, we did not have much at small forward. We had traded Tay away already, so we had Singler starting at small forward and going down from there. As the writer says, Drummond will absolutely be in a great situation this upcoming season, as part of a dynamic multi - optioned offense. And on his defense - Drummond was stealing the ball from guards right off the bat. Nothing he learned during the season.
Drummond for DPOY 2014. Is it too early to start the campaign?
So you never saw him get 'confused' by D-Wade two straight times up the floor 25 feet from the basket?
He wasn't trying to cover him, he was trying to steal the ball. I watched him in that National Team scrimmage this summer and he was absolutely terrible.
If we all believe hard enough, there is nothing that Andre can't achieve. DPOY. POTUS. World peace. It's all possible if we believe.
