Under the radar and look like they can be dominant.

Andre Drummond looks ridiculous. Never seen anyone like him in my life. Wait until you see the clips from tonight's game. Preseason or not, this dude is a fricken BEAST. lol at all the "bust" comments. He is a guard trapped in a 7 foot body. How he slipped to 9 is remarkable.

Monroe and Knight look like completely different players as well.

Pistons are the least talked about team on PSD and these guys look legit.

Take notice NBA fans - everyone will know these guys midway through this season.

I actually got to watch Knight mess around this summer in Calgary. the guy can play. I think Drummond will be the best big in this last draft still though I know I'm the minority. The Pistons need wings though.

Just saying they look the part. Drummond has good hands around the rim and jumps through the roof. Very impressive.

As I'm posting this I think Rodney Stuckey just shredded his knee.

I'm sold on Monroe. Not huge about Knight and not a fan of Drummond at all. Reminds me of Deandre Jordan. He shot 29% from the FT line last season, he had the worst offensive post game at of all of the bigs that entered the draft and his overall efficiency on offense was bottom 5 out of all big men in that draft. He's got a questionable work ethic as well. Just not a huge fan of him.

fadedmario
10-10-2012, 08:45 PM
Main reason of this post:

Everyone says Drummond has no offensive game when he was drafted. He looks like he could be dominant on the offensive end sooner than later.

Anthony Davis has the hype, Drummond has the frame and can do many, many things well.

He'll be worth that #9 pick.

Drummond looks like he has more potential than Monroe to me.

He has freak of nature athleticism, hand good hands around the rim. He will also be a top shot blocker from day 1.

How did we get any of these guys?? lol

Warriors could have taken Monroe, Knight was supposed to go top 5, and Drummond had no business being there at 9.

Nope. Monroe has perennial all star talent. He can score in many ways, is a WAY underrated passer, and just understands the game. Drummond might very well be a baller, but Monroe looks like a stud.

Based exactly on what? You need evidence if you're going to make a claim like this. Preseason is the only thing we have to judge him by and that's not exactly cutting it.

If you think he'll be special, it's fine, but then don't shove it down people's throats by creating a thread when you have no evidence.

Trust me, I watched 40ish Pistons game last year, probably will do the same this year (if the Wolves aren't on, I am watching the Pistons, I have no idea why).

Based on the 2 preseason games you've watched? There's a reason he got passed by 8 other teams who scouted him intently and has way more knowledge on him then you or I. And there's also a reason why he had a horrible season in the NCAA last year.

If he had a few great regular season games, then that's a different story but its the damn preseason... it's not the time to knock the raptors, or Terrence Ross, which you probably have no info on either.

He honestly looks bigger faster stronger than everyone on the court. Drummond will average 4 dunks and 3 blocks a game this year. There is going to be some teams regretting passing on him. He looks dominant and he's 19. Watch this game tonight if nbatv replays it, this kid will be our best player.

Yeah I was definitely impressed with him. If he stays healthy he's going to have a really nice career I think. He had 2 really nice blocks, had a nice thing going with Bynum, and he rebounded decently well.

He's definitely going to be interesting to watch. Monroe is Monroe, we already know he's got what it takes to become an all star, and he will continue to improve. Knight is underrated by a lot of people on this board IMO. He made a lot of foolish (rookie) mistakes last season, but he flashed signs of being elite (that 20 & 10 with no turnover game and 60% shooting).

Anyways, you asked to be singled out here, but that's fine you do it a lot and clearly don't care.

Eh, elite is actually a pretty strong word for Knight, but I definitely think he will be a good player in this league for a long time.

Great game by the trio but hope they all can stay health and continue to produce and also play at a high level. My main concern reguarding the pistons is health and management. I'm a pistons fantastic for sure but it's hard to be a fan of losing and lackluster performance that seems to haunt the team since the glory days, but on the other hand atleast this year team will produce some top ten highlights this year. I think the last time I seen the pistons on sport center top ten plays waswhen they had Allan Iverson, lol; but all jokes a side I see this year team squeezing into the playoffs (wishful thinking I know)

The only hope we can be better than them is if Valanciunas beasts and Lowry comes back and beasts, and that Bargnani stops shooting 35%. Yeah it's a preseason game, but still Bargnani is so inefficient.

Just because a player is an athletic specimen doesn't guarantee him success in the NBA. Many players with his type of size and athleticism, have never reached full potential (Tyrus Thomas comes to mind). I hope for you guys that he does, and I'd be encouraged by the start, but there is a long way to go for the young kid to realize his potential.

no doubt most of us all know hes going to take some time but the potential is there.I think we just werent expecting see anything like that out of him for a while even though its preseason.

That's exactly right... we all know its preseason and we dont have any crazy ideas that we are going to be a championship team or even a winning team after one game. However, last night was an exciting game to watch and the chemistry the guys showed was very promising. Knight worked hard to gain weight and lower his body fat and Drummond was much more active then we expected to see out of him so soon, mix that with our love of Monroe and that adds up to high hopes, even if its not right away.

The team has a lot of young talent we havent even got to see yet too, anyone who has been in our position the past few years would be just as excited as some of us are this morning after last night's game IMO.

What was awful about him?

He shot fine from the 3, but he was awful as a point guard. Poor assist rates, poor turnover rates, incredibly inconsistent, very poor defensively, and it took him 12 shots per game to average 13 points.

Really nothing special from him last year.

The assists won't happen when your only consistent scoring option is Greg Monroe. Stuckey did have some nice games, but unless he develops a three point shot, he won't be viable for assists, all he does is drive and occasionally shoot.

Turnovers he definitely improved on nearing the end of the season. There were some games where Knight disappeared, but that's expected of a rookie. Defense wasn't poor, it was alright, just not consistent. That's why I want Tony Allen here next year. Show all our guards how to play defense like a Piston. ;)

Can't deny the 12 shots for 13 points, but that should sharpen when we get perimeter help, whenever that'll be. :rolleyes:

I think you'll see flashes of brilliance and a few great games from Drummond. But over the course of the season I have a feeling he will be highly inconsistent and frustrating. Especially offensivly. If he can bring it every game on defence then he should have a successful career, but until he develops a better post game and jump shot I wouldn't expect the moon and the stars from him. I think he should look to Serge Ibaka as a guy he kind of models his game after.

Well you can blame supporting cast, but Kyrie, Thomas and Rubio were all on teams hat shot poorer percentages from the field and still posted better assist rates by a good margin.

Per Synergy, he ranked 370th overall in opponent PPP.

He ranked 59th among starting guards in shooting percentage.

Also, I'll call BSon turnovers getting better as the year went on. His season average was 2.6 turnovers per game. The last 15 games of the year he averaged 2.8.

13 points 4 assist 3 rebounds isn't terrible for a project PG in his rookie season. Everybody says hes the hardest working guy on the team, Hell, Corey Maggette calls him the franchise player. I expect big things from him this year.

While I project the 2-3year window before he starts to make an impact. I wouldn't be surprised if he has a more immediate impact. Sometimes guys games don't fit the college game.

I can see a scenario where he just Dwight Howard's the league. Beats everybody with the combo of size, strength, agility, speed, and burst that he possess.

I think Drummond's timing is far better than i thought it would be. The block on davis shows near perfect timing and athletic ability. He has timing and defense, which is all we'll need. He will have plenty of disappointing games, but Moose/Knight will spoon-feed the points to drummond. Drummond doesn't have to score, he just has to be a threat to jump at the rim for an oop at ANY given time to keep players honest.

He wasn't good offensively or defensively it's not a really hard concept to gasp. I'm not the type to hold a players first 3-4 years against them but his rookie season was underwhelming to say the least. I like Knight, he had some good games especially when he played against Kyrie so I at least respect him for that. But like I said fringe all star to all star level potential based on what I've seen.

His impact was far greater than the box score will tell you. Completely different team with him out there. Most of his points (12) came when the game was still close in the second. He fouled out because of a couple stupid fouls (one bad call in my opinion on a screen and another he just pushed Dalembert out of the paint because Sammy was trying to be a bully.) And the Piston's lost because CV's help d is terrible, his shot continues to not be there, and our guard kept letting Harris/Sanders/etc block them. Like, we had something like 15 shots blocked.

12:41AM EDT October 15. 2012 - When Andre Drummond joined the defending national champions at the University of Connecticut in 2011, expectations for the physically gifted big man were sky high. While Drummond failed to live up to the hype, his physical gifts did not diminish in college, and the Detroit Pistons selected him ninth overall in the 2012 NBA Draft.

"The past is the past," Pistons coach Lawrence Frank said. "We all have a past, so we just continue to learn and try to improve.

"Andre is a great kid. Obviously very athletic, very good feet, great size and we think he has a very bright future. Obviously, we didn't draft him at nine and not think he didn't have a very bright future."

Drummond looks the part of an NBA center, which is not lost on his new teammates.

"He definitely has the tools to be a really good big man," Pistons star Greg Monroe said. "As far as the mental part of the game, he has a ways to go, but as far as the physical skills, he is one of those guys who, any ceiling he reaches, you won't be surprised because of the physical tools he is blessed with."

Detroit hasn't finished above .500 since the 2007-08 season and a youth movement finally appears to be taking root, but the Pistons follow their own ideals when it comes to player development. Detroit's four rookies and other developing players hoping for playing time will have to earn it.

"People say development well that means playing time," Frank said. "To me development is always based on merit because the worst thing you can look at it with a exception of a couple guys guys who don't get it based on merit, it usually doesn't play out real well for them. Guys that get it based on merit, they understand the process. To me, whether you are young or old, it has to be based on merit."

Even a top-10 draft pick will have to earn his playing time from Frank.

So far, Drummond's first NBA training camp and preseason has been a success. He's averaged 11.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 18.0 minutes a game through three, including a 19-point, 10-rebound performance Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks.

"Andre, he had a good training camp," Monroe said. "Typical I don't want to say struggles obstacles that any rookie has learning a lot of new stuff, new terminology, schemes and stuff like that, but I think he picked it up fairly well.

"In his first game action, I think he played well. What I think he did was he let the game come to him. That's what he did well; he didn't try to force anything. He did his job. He did exactly what the coaches asked him to do."

The structure provided by training camp and a total immersion in basketball has been good for the young big man who occasionally appeared distracted in high school and college.

"We do this every day," Drummond said. "We have nothing to do besides doing what you love, playing basketball. Being in the gym everyday with my teammates is the greatest feeling.

"The NBA has a lot more structure. The coaching staff has been great for me getting better, quicker. I am just doing what the coaching staff is telling me to do."

Frank will be looking for more of the same. Inconsistent effort could cost Drummond a spot in the Pistons' rotation.

"Like anyone, you want to develop him and development is not just in the games, development is what you do every day," Frank said. "How are his habits? What is he doing in practice? ... And look he is doing all good things, they are all positives, so I am sure if he continues on that path, he will find his way and earn his way into playing time as long as he continues to put maximum effort into everything he does.

"He is a sponge," Frank added. "He soaks it all up. It is one of his greatest traits. He is a very, very willing learner. He is a fun guy to coach."

"He is still 19 and still a rookie, but he is picking up everything they are trying to help him (with)," Monroe said. "You can never put expectations on an unknown. It's not like this is a guy who has played for two years. This is a guy without any kind of NBA action, so everything that happens is kind of going to be a surprise. I am interested to see how he does. Obviously, I hope he does well because he can help our team out a whole lot."

Coach Frank is adamant that Drummond is not getting a free pass in Detroit and will earn his playing time, but the young big man has kicked things off on the right foot and if he is still a fun guy to coach at the end of October, we will be seeing a lot of this physically gifted young big in the regular season.

Kid looks like the biggest steal in a long time. Should have went top 4.

Watch him play for 5 minutes and he will impress you. Some players don't break-out in college because their game is built more pro-style.

....if you check around the NBA, there is a mass panic going on in every city besides new Orleans right now that passed on him.

The story teams passing on him sold to their fans was that Drummond was another hasheem thabeet. Lazy, low basketball IQ and would take 3-4 years just to get on the floor.

Problem is, you can watch him play for 2 minutes and be reasonably sure he isn't any of those things. That's causing a lot of immediate backlash, even over preseason games.

I think Detroit had a great draft though with Drummond who fell at least 2 spots too far, Khris Middleton who is an intriguing shooter at the 3 and Kim English who is a sharpshooting 2.

Not trolling at all, just feel threads like these with one poster constantly bumping to post irrelevant highlights or posting individual statistics from certain games (in this case, pre-season lol) brings unnecessary hate.

Anyway I'll let this thread unfold and you'll see what I mean.

The thread was going just fine until you started trolling.

Sorry there is a Pistons thread in the NBA forum. If you don't like it, don't post in it.

Could a mod move this to the Pistons forum? (if they have one)

Why?

"What have you done for me lately?" is always the question. I could elaborate, but I will heed FadedMario and let this continue to be more of a positive thread.

Joe d has already stated that his hands were cuffed.

By the deals he gave out to Villanueva and Gordon. Again, I'm not trying to get into this unless you want to start a Joe D thread.

I'm a fan of Brandon Knight; he's probably my favorite pick in that draft after shumpert.

Dre will be a top three Center in the league within the next three years. If Moose stays efficient and there is no locker room drama or ego's flying around we are going to have a very dangerous team. We may even be able to flip CV instead of amnesty him for a valuable shooter...

I think Knight will eventually be recognized as the hardest working/training guard in the league. He and Kyrie might even get a Dwill/CP3 rivalry going on if they both stay in the same division.

Also... I really like DRose. Maybe you trolls should take his lead and display good character.

Hey tell how signing that headcase Kirelinko to nearly $10mil a year works out for you in a few months.

Backseat modding. :facepalm:

One more good pick and we're set for playoffs.

1. Not trying to get into this with Detroit fans, but I'm not going to back down either

2. Headcase? I don't know where that's coming from. This is a guy who is best known for his long stat lines and his wife letting him have 1 freeby a year. Headcase is not something I've ever heard.

3. The funny thing about you bringing up Kirelinko's deal is that it expires at the same time as Villanueva's. It's just 2 years. He's a proven veteran who is just entering his 30s. It's not my favorite deal, but it's repercussions are not devastating.

Timberwolves are the only other team I like besides Detroit (big Kevin Love fan), good luck this year. Hope you guys get into the playoffs.

Thanks... anything less than playoffs is a major disappointment. I'm starting to like the look of the Pistons and could become a fan a couple years out (when a lot of contracts expire).
