    Default Andre Drummond's first game in the NBA.

    It's only a pre-season game, but he certainly looks like he belongs.

    Yup, he really played well. He was bullying Amir Johnson in the post and worked well on the lob attempts.

    Didn't play a lot of minutes in tonight's game (which sucks, because I want to see more of him and Jonas going 1 on 1 for a while), but I expect him to probably start sometime this season.

    he was risky though, and its not hard to understand why a lot of teams did. But i hope he turns out to be a beast for the D. When's the next game?

    Call me crazy but I think he's going to be another JaVall McGee.

    definitely a very good first exposure. he and bynum already have a good raport and he doesnt seem nearly as raw as he did in the conn games I watched last year. Sure, hes got a long way to go to be a solid nightly contributor on a good team, but I was very pleased with the effort of the entire 2nd unit in game 1. He hardly played in game 2, and Krastov also looked like a potential rotation big, but not with the same tantalizing upside. mmmn, upside

    definitely thought that his game fit the nba way more than college. he could be another one of those guys

    I defenitely like the fact that he was using his body to position for rebounds that in college he would have just tried to outjump his opponent. He showed that he is quicker on his feet than I thought. I am looking forward to seeing him with monroe and the first unit.

    He's big, he's strong, he's coordinated, he's got good timing, he's got soft hands, he's a great leaper, he's explosive, he got good instincts, he sees plays develop, he's super athletic, he likes to play big, and he's active. He's going to be a true monster. Top four center in his fourth year if he goes to Hakeem camp.

    He's obviously going to be bigger than Dwight, his leaping ability is more explosive, his offensive instincts are also better. He's not as intensively active as DH, or as quick or as intuned to rebounding and defense but some of that he can learn. He's nowhere near Dwight now or even DMC, but his potential is for playing big is great. Centers are the hardest to call because they seem to take awhile to develop - DMC is very rare.
