They say he had a low motor. I've been watching and his motor seems very high

He's not bolting anytime soon. Rookies, per CBA advantages, usually go nowhere for a good 6-7 years.

Their defense will look even worse against the upper echelon West teams.

Maybe but he's a serious project and MKG has made a HUGE difference already in Charlotte.

mkg is also a serious project. he's got a high motor and is a good defender, but an incredibly shaky outside shot and doesn't have great ball skills.

drummond is a good passer, good defender, has a very soft touch around the rim, and is still SO young.

meh...i mean, it's close. i'd be good with either. biyombo/drummond frontcourt would be very good defensively and, in a couple of years, offensively as well.

Oh I wouldn't want to play the Celtics in the playoffs... But even then, not having Ray Allen to hit those daggers in games etc etc takes away from their 'veteran' allure.... Though with a good coach, and a PG like Rondo; they'll be around... And get more consistent.. I just think with another year on KG and Pierce.. certainly not as threatened by them... Would opt for a bunch of other matchups before them in the playoffs however.

No defense at all in the LA vs. HOU game. It's like 2 Pringles teams playing against each other.

40 points in the first quarter. D'antoni is great.

Brooklyn has a serious schedule coming up. Let's see what they're made of now.

Return to New York Knicks
