But just because DeAndre wasn't polished and fell in the draft doesn't mean he doesn't have a good head on his shoulders. You can see the passion on the court, when a big Blake Griffin dunk happens, or when a game winning shot is made....the dude has love for the game. It's not a measurable stat, but it's certainly tangible. I watched that big shot Shabazz Napier made today against Villanova...EVERYONE on the UConn squad was STOKED...and than they zoomed in on Drummond- looked like he couldn't care less. Like I said, I doubt not that Drummond has the potential to be game changing center...but so did Kwame Brown. Drummond fears contact. That is NOT a good sign. He was projected as a game changer before UConn snagged him. I've seen ZERO sign of game changer unfortunately. I see JaVale McGee.
You can't possibly tell me that you honestly believe yourself when you talk about "passion" and "good head on your shoulders" when referring to DeAndre Jordan at Texas A&M. was often lazy, and many questioned his toughness on the court, both mentally and physically. If those weren't legitimate questions surrounding him as a prospect, you can bet your bottom dollar he would have gone far higher than he actually did. You can't tell me Drummond doesn't look excited when he throws down a 'big dunk.' Everyone does, even though that's hardly a measure of "passion."
