I love Monroe, seriously, I ADORE that dude's game, I just don't really know about his long term viability at the 4 spot. I know that's what everyone says he is, but I just don't think he is, not in today's NBA. We're going to more and more stretch 4s and just big brawny ball handling 3s playing the 4, I don't know that Monroe can defend guys like that. Drummond's going to have to grow into a pretty nice switch man off of screen's so Monroe doesn't have to leave the paint a ton on D.
