1. Griffin
2. Favors
3/4. Cousins
3/4. Davis
5. Monroe
6. Udoh

Aminu is a SF.

And if anything, those guys haven't been as impressive as I thought.

Griffin is beasting.

But no one else is going as good as I though. Cousins is a headache, Favours and Monroe are getting like 7 and 5, Davis has been injured for half the season, Udoh's been injured too.

Griffin is ahead of everyone by a long way. Cousins has the skillset to be an all-star if he sorts his issues out. Monroe will be a very solid big for years to come in my opinion. Favors will either turn out to be an all-star or a highly average role player.. No inbetween.

Griffin #1 by far, but dont sleep on Udoh. He has the ability to become a good player

1.Blake Griffin is obviously number 1

2.Derrick Favors definitely in my mind can become a force if he enhances his Basketball IQ and works hard. He works at it, and he tries at least. Plus he's 19.

3.DeMarcus Cousins also in my opinion can be a very dominant force in the league, despite his actions in the past.

Davis
Monroe
Udoh

Cousins
Monroe
Davis
Favors


Udoh

This right here. Monroe has really impressed me when he sees the court. Favors is still very young with much to improve, so I wouldn't base anything off of this season. Udoh is extremely raw still, but he has the capability to be very good defensively, and just okay offensively. Griffin seems to be the jackpot big man of the decade.

Patrick Patterson looks like he could have a solid career too.

That's what i was coming to post. When given time he has beasted. I think he'll have a breakout season when given playing time.

Woooooooooooooooooosh

1)Griffin is a Superstar.
---------------------------
2)Monroe's IQ is through the rough and he's averaging near a double double since starting (Janurary). It's going to take longer for him to develop, but he's great defensively, holding Howard to 9 points and like 7 or 8 Turn overs in the only game against him.

A toss up between these two, depending on how much Favors lives up to his potential, and if Cousins gets his head on straight.
3/4)Cousins needs to stay out of foul trouble and get his head on straight.
3/4)Favors has the second highest potential, but who knows.

5/6)Davis has been pretty good.
5/6)Udoh seems interesting.

Seems like a pretty good comparison from what little I've seen. God I wish Monroe knew how to jump though. Even half of the Athleticism Cousins has would push him to the next level.

People will realize this eventually, some even believe that he is going to eventually be better than some that have been mentioned alot more due to hype.

could you imagine how much better the league would be if big men like these guys (except for maybe griffin) stayed for more thatn 1-2 years in college. im so sick of the nab becoming the developmental league for lottery picks. there needs to be a 2 or even 3 year limit on college basketball guys coming out. way to many raw players in the league.

I really like him as well. There was a little while back where he had a good stretch of games. I wish he would get a little more minutes though.

havent watched much of davis, to raptor fans how is his defense and is he raw right now scoring ?

also to pistons fans is monroe as good a passer as i've heard, how is his defense also ?

Ed's been fantastic. His best attributes are definitely blocking and rebounding. His offensive game is still far away but he's done a great job so far and has shown us flashes of what he could be. Currently, he ranks 3rd among rookies in PER. So we're pretty happy with him.

his D has been good man. his already 1st in blocks amongst rookies i think. he hasnt developed an inside game as of yet. he is very raw, in that regard. most of points come from second chance points, or screen and rolls with jose. hes got good hands and is a good finisher. pretty good for a guy who missed all of training camp, and preseason, plus a lot of regular season games.

Monroe has definitely shown flashes of his passing, but the offense isn't run through him right now so he cant show his passing as much as he did in college.

His defense has been a huge surprise, he was a big reason Dwight was held to 9 points 6 turnovers earlier in the season.

He won't be a big shot blocker but he has great hands, he does stuff like this EVERY game---

http://www.nba.com/video/games/pistons/2011/01/17/0021000604_dal_det_play6.nba/index.html?ls=iref:nbahpt2

He's averaging 2.5 steals per game in January, very good for a center.

Since Monroe has been starting for an injured Ben Wallace the past 5 games he's averaging 12.6/9/2.6 steals while shooting 60%. Solid Defense & good passer.

Monroe is also averaging 3.7 Offensive Rebounds per game while getting 30+ minuter per game. Along with 2.6 steals, 13.3 points (nearly all off of inside passes or put backs), and 9.9 total rebounds.
