    Monroe needs to keep working on his shooting if things are going to work out as well as most of you think, at this point him and Drummond are basically just put-back guys.

    Whats wrong with his shooting?I think hes pretty consistent with his mid range shot and even creates his own shot with a couple pump fakes.Monroes skill set is going overlooked because hes a under the rim player so people arent seeing flashy dunks and hold that against him.

    2013 plan

    Sign Josh Smith, Shawn Marion, and Chauncey Billups

    2013-14 Pistons

    3 guard rotation - Knight, Stuckey, and Billups

    Small forward - Marion/Prince/Singler
    Power forward - Josh Smith/Jerekbo
    Center - Monroe/Drummond

    mix of youth and veterans. Could challenge the Bulls and Pacers for the
    division.

    Smith played out of position because marvin williams was the number 2 overall pick at the small forward position. They had to play smith at the four. Then they draft horford who is really a 4 playing a 5. AND ANYONE IN HERE who thinks JOSH smith at age 26-27 is a risk because he is getting old and going to lose his athleticism (lol wtf?) needs to look at greg monroe and say holy **** what about his athleticism against top notch nba teams? Whats his stats against cousins, perkins/ibaka/ bosh/ howard ? are they dominating? are they 20 /10 ?

    I didnt realize there was that many still in the league but looking at that list moose either ahead of or better than some really good players and you can even say Moose is putting up these numbers playing out of position.

    You can also say he put up those numbers because he was on a bad team.
    Some of the guys on that list don't put up great numbers, but they either play really good defense and/or are on really good teams so they don't get the shots and/or they play next to another good rebounder etc...

    If Monroes numbers increase I will be shocked, his scoring might stay about the same, for now anyway, but I have a feeling his rebounding is going to take a hit. I really feel like if he doesn't develope a really good 15-18 foot shot he will be a borderline starter for the majority of his career.

    I think LA is a bit more athletic than Moose.

    A lot more athletic, a much better shooter, defender, shot-blocker, and more versatile. LA is miles ahead of Monroe, and it has nothing to do with age.

    LOL..Hes a better player for sure but lets not exaggerate the differences here in shot blocking and Athleticism and miles ahead is laughable as well.

    Moose last year(age 21)-15.4pts,9.6rebs,2.3ast,0.7blocks,1.3stls,fg%.521

    Aldridge last year(age 26)-21.7pts,8.0rebs,2.4ast,0.8blocks,0.9stls,fg%.512


    Looks pretty similiar to me aside from points per game so him being miles ahead of Moose I dont buy and I think well see Mooses ppg rise this year as well.
