Drummond would have busted in Sacramento. Him going to the Kings was my biggest fear for him.

Anyone watching the Lakers game? What is happening?

By the scoreboard it looks like the Lakers are hanging on to dear life against the Bullets

Everything I see from Drummond says he can be a top 3 rookie this year and its obvious more playing time will aid his development. It`s such a shame.

Drummond and Knight are looking like steals.

Drummond has 6 points (all sick dunks) 6 rebounds and 2 blocks in 10 minutes so far....lol

Fire Frank now.

Solid night for T-Ross: 18 pts, 5 boards in 22 mins. Needs to be more consistent game-by-game.

His team has no confidence in him, preferring to start a horrible back-up small forward over him at power forward with three starters out.

I expected him to contend for RoY, and average nearly a double-double. But he can't shoot (.410 FG%, which is piss-poor for any player and doubly so for a big), he gets blocked very often, and he doesn't really show signs of NBA quality skills in any area except defensive rebounding.

I think it is fair to say that he has been the most disappointing rookie this year. Right now, his stats match the career averages of a second-round pick, and if he intends to play in the league after his rookie contract is up he needs to play better.


Could have had Drummond....lol

Or Lillard or Barnes as well. ;)

Good game for Lillard against the Spurs, but I gotta say, just terrible D from them.

You can't give him all those open looks, he'll knock them down if he's open.

He get's himself open a lot, that step-back is deadly in 1on1.

And his release is quick enough that if you go under a pick he's launching that shot before you get around it. If you chase him above the pick he's off to the rim. The only way to really contain him is to trap or hope he's having a bad shooting night. Lillard's scoring isn't just defenses not knowing how to handle him, it's that defense can't just simply stop him. He's been scouted enough to where teams would know how to deal with him if it was simple. Not to say he won't see schemes that are more effective on him coming up but this guy is really talented and deserves a lot of credit.

Andrew Nicholson is the biggest steal of the draft so far.
