How did this guy go #9????

If they did the draft over again he would easily go top 3 right now.

For those of you that are just hearing about him this preseason, this is what has people so excited.

Discuss all things Andre Drummond here.

I'm not hating on your thread because Colangelo drafted Ross. I'll be one of the few Raptors to admit drafting Ross was a mistake and I wanted Drummond, who I think will be a superstar. Doesn't change the fact that this thread is unnecessary and you're just trolling.

This kid is talked about constantly everywhere else around the internet, but if you bring him up in the "NBA Forum" on PSD people get butthurt.

You made the same thread a week ago, we don't need a new one every time he has a good preseason game.

I think he'll be good as long as he improves on his 30% FT pct.

I'm the same as Raps08-09: I really wanted us to draft Drummond to have two Centers with great potential on the team... Maybe make a twin tower duo, or rip a lot out of a team that wanted one of the two.

PSD is gonna go on fire once JV and Drummond become superstars, eh piston fans? :D

But to the main topic, I've loved what I have seen from Drummond so far, with little to no plays set for him. He should beast in the next couple years.. I'm shocked he dropped from the top 5 from earlier... There will be a lot of other teams pissed off at not getting him, if he becomes the superstar (CLEVELAND)

He would have went #1 two years ago, if highschool players were still allowed to enter the draft. I think zone defenses in college made him not look as dominate, which hurt his draft stock.

I'd feel the exact same for whoever makes it.

It's perfectly fine if someone has an opinion and think so and so will be a star. But don't shove it down people's throats, especially when they have no evidence except for preseason.

Not saying much.

Mark Gasol is probably the 3rd best Center and he isn't even a franchise player. If he's your team's best player, chances are you are a lottery team or first round fast food. The jury is out on whether Bynum can even lead a team to the playoffs as a #1.

He's an absolute freak athletically. I think he's going to be very good but not right off the bat. Drummond has such an insanely high upside but he's still a work in progress. I expect him to have a season full of ups and downs and continue to develop over the next three years before he truly comes into his own. Definitely a great get at 9 though.

seriously though

the dude will be a good player. i hope nothing but the best for him.

i really like the pistons so i've gone through some game threads on other sites and when you guys are playing bad, all i see is people stating that its preseason and it doesn't matter ... But when people try and tell you to calm down a little about the Drummond hype because its only preseason you guy's lose your ****!!

Let's give it some time before we start crowning this dude hall of fame worthy ...

You would a complained for the exact same reason if I started the thread, and your argument was why is the same thing being repeated. Not sure why you'd change it to argue about who the OP was. It doesn't matter if it's the same stuff being repeated.

Let Detroit fans have some time in the NBA forum, there are some teams who are never mentioned in here. It shouldn't be a problem to anyone when Detroit, Milwaukee, Washington etc. have a thread in here.

OP is guaranteeing that one of the most raw players in this year's draft will be a superstar in the league. And he's basing this on preseason.

You can discuss young players. But making a claim with such little evidence (and preseason/summer league doesn't even compare to the regular season and playoffs) is complete ********.

Well most people (including some scouts, GM's, etc.) said Drummond wouldn't be ready to play serious minutes for at least 2-3 years because he is so raw. Him having an immediate impact from the first game is something really nobody expected. Even if it is preseason.

I think he's going to be really good in time. But as it's been said before, a highlight video can make the worst of players look amazing.
Most of those highlights were against the Raps and Bobcats. Either the person who made the video thinks very highly of those teams, or Drummond is taking advantage of preseason and bad teams trying to figure out their lineups.
