I expect us to get pumped worse than -insert PornHub analogy- tonight.

With that said, I'm very excited to have him because I think having him allows us to steal an extra game or two in the next few weeks that we might not have won without him. Ex-

@ Kings
@ Raptors
@ Knicks
@ Hornets

If we can somehow manage to win 2 of those games, I'll be really happy. The rotation right now should be:

Schroder (34-38 MPG), KCP (25-28 MPG), Kuzma (34-38 MPG), Morris (18-24 MPG), Drummond (30 MPG)

Trezz (28 MPG), Caruso (25 MPG), THT (20 MPG), Matthews (18 MPG) off the bench.

I think we'll have to play some bully-ball line-ups of Drummond + Harrell together at points throughout the game. Just have to surround those two with playmaking (Schroder or THT) and shooting (2/3 of Wes, KCP, Kuzma).

They could potentially keep Drummond if Schroder walks. I think it's easier to find a guard somewhere for cheap that can give some scoring

Seeing him the other day I know he need rhythm, adjust to the style know the teammates and all the stuff.

But his game style it's horrible I don't know who trained him and tell him to do those things but he should be in jail. He has really bad habits. I mean he dribble and pass and want a lot the ball on horrible positions like he know what he doing or shooting threes and post moves. The other day look lazy as **** playing pick and roll just prefer to stay down low looking for the ball instead of play pick and roll again and the screens that did on these plays were really bad. It's just all the opposite that a player like him with his body should do.

As a longtime Pistons fan, this is what you are going to see a lot of. Lebron will try to fit him into a role, but I’ll be surprised if he’s offered a contract by the Lakers next season.

He’s basically a really nice sports car with the engine of a smaller economy car. And only occasionally he’ll put in a more appropriate engine. And against the sixers Joel has a field day with him.
