You seriously think so? Whos gonna get a board for us in this lineup against Lakers with Drummond? We will get killed on the glass, and Lakers will grab offensive rebounds for more than 50% of the shots they miss.


Gang rebound as usual. Meanwhile, we score every time down the floor.


You know how Youtube throws vids after you watched couple videos right, this guy obviously a Laker fan. That along with comment section is hilarious af :lol:

Watching Lakers Bucks now and Drummond looks horrible. All the criticisms levelled at him are glaringly obvious - not a good roll man or above the rim finisher, tries to do too much, lazy screens, average defensive presence...

Ultimately it doesn't mean anything since his role is to be LeBron and ADs hired muscle but he isn't as good as Dwight even at 35. No way.

That is GOOD NEWS. Thanks for the update, Sasha.

His first game and Andre Drummond went out with a bad toe.

His big toe was wrapped up pretty good and he had to leave with a limp.

It didn't look good.

I think our FO did their homework on this a long time ago and Drummond was never an option, not by his choice. LMA will help spread the floor, Drummond is a paint magnet. The fact they threw him in the game without any concern to his conditioning screams desperation. He hadn't played since Feb 12th.

Luckily his injury isn't serious but yesterday was a classic Drummond game. 2 for 6. 3 TOs. Trying to do too much on offense. No dunks. He plays like he's a skilled big man throwing up floaters, post ups, hook shots, bullet feeds. Stuff he's just horrible at. I'm sure he'll be better with Lebron but it's hard to win with a low bbiq type guy just throwing away possessions.

Holy crap. I just saw Claxton’s numbers and its unbelievable. Best in NBA defensive rating 100.5, offensive rating 115.6 and net rating of 15.1. I think this tendinitis thing hid the diamond when the burglars were going room to room.

Claxton has all-nba defense material. he isnt the rim protector that allen is for instance but overall he is disruptive. not many guys his size can not just hang with smalls but lock them down. what he did vs lillard was downright impressive.

Aldridge looks great for us, though I believe Drummond would've been similar if not even better if he played with us. Apparently every all-star level teammate became worse playing with Lebron or in his system, while Nash and Harden knew how to utilize the playyers to play to their strength. If Lakers got Griffin and Aldridge, they would quickly become their scapegoats.

With this being said, I hope we can keep Aldridge this summer and he will play the David West(Warriors 2017-2018) role for us. For Griffin though, lets see how his health holds up. He looks good so far but can he stay healthy, thats a question to be answered coming into playoffs time.

Drummond is a career loser/underachiever at every level who is a net negative.

LMA/Blake are just victems of father time. but they are good, skilled, smart players.

Drummond is an awful, lowiq, player who is just enormous enough to get rebounds
