    Sounds impressive, but I am a bit skeptical. Time to put you to a little test. ID the state below:

    well, but there is a difference between sovereign States and federal States of the US; but with the level of integration in the European Union, sooner or later there won't be a difference between the US states and the States in the European Union. Which is a pity, but this is not the right place for these issues...

    I keep waiting for Canadian provinces to become states.

    I've given up hope on the Serranilla Bank becoming a state.

    SI's Thomsen and Forrester: "Which rookie will struggle most this season?"

    Thomsen: The rookie facing the greatest leap is Andre Drummond, the No. 9 pick by the Pistons, because he was drafted based on his potential. Drummond is excellent athletically, but he's going to have to work hard this year to channel that athleticism and learn the skills required of an NBA big man. Plus, with no understanding for the kind of structured environment that coach Lawrence Frank is working hard to create, Drummond may look lost for much of this year. It will be a huge mistake to declare him a bust after a month or two, because the real goal for him will be to show progress and discipline. This is going to be like a seven-month boot camp for him.

    Forrester: Drummond. Blessed with a tantalizing basketball body, the Pistons' first-round pick seemed bedeviled in his one season at Connecticut by a questionable basketball motor. That switch doesn't often magically flip in the NBA. He's only 19, so there is time for him to find the gear that would make his modest performance in college (10 points per game, 7.6 rebounds, 29.5 percent free-throw shooting) an outlier. Big men, though, can't coast most nights; there is too much pushing and shoving to do, too much effort needed to protect the rim and provide some semblance of offense. Will Drummond learn from the strides fellow Pistons big man Greg Monroe has made? I have my doubts.

    Except for the "progress and discipline" part, I hope Andre proves both of them wrong
