I want to see what Drummond can do with consistent starter minutes. Quit holding out on us, Frank.

Watching those videos, it shines through how calm and controlled of a player he is already.


Rose-esque in terms of his body language.

Someone have the numbers on highlight mixes per 36 minutes by Blazers fans?

I think they're on an historic pace.

I didn't realize that someone is sticking a gun to your head and making you watch these videos. My apologizes for you being forced to point your mouse to the play button and hitting the click button. Tell your hostage holder there is free beer in the fridge and then lock the door when he leaves and then call 911 so you can stop being forced to watch Damian Lillard videos as you watch your hostage holder being escorted off to jail.

Glad that Blazers fans have something to cheer for. As a fan of a franchise where losing happens you have to be happy about the little things, such as player development.

Not really rookie related, but young team related, I really like what I see from the young Hornets.

We are competitive in most of our games, and there isn't players on the team that most poor record teams have that make me say "I want this guy off the team". I really like the makeup and pretty much everyone except Austin Rivers has played better than you would expect from an individual standpoint, we just need them to gel.

Beal with another big game carrying the load. Starting to show some signs of life in isolation, too, which would be huge.

Hit a buzzer beater 3 to send it to overtime against Brooklyn on Friday night too. He's really coming on.

Beal is surging to another eastern rookie of the month award. Kid is a future star. 22 pts 5-7 from 3 point range 5 rebs and 4 asts and a game winner vs the Thunder.

Very impressive numbers. He may end up being the best wing from the draft after all.

Jared Sullinger has quietly been a g-dsend for the Celtics. Amazingly consistent for a rookie.

Considering it is one fan, not multiple, who posts the videos and you're all certainly welcome to post videos of the rookies of your teams, I don't see the problem. I am sure if there was a higher concentration of Hornets fans on realGM we'd be seeing Davis highlights after each game, since he is also a joy to watch. And now that Beal has picked it up we're seeing videos of him, and he is fun to watch. I'd certainly like to see videos of MKG out there, if anyone is making them, posted by the Bobcats fans as he is possibly the most fun to watch of all since he's always going 110%.
