People judging him off his 1 year of college are clueless. He could have been a HS senior the past year, but went to college early. He's more developed than Dwight Howard at the same age.

And purely speaking as an NBA fan, I just hate seeing teams draft these types. It's why I wish there was at least a 2 year college rule.


Why? Calhoun could care less about developing Drummond's skill set as far as it meant winning. He gave the ball to Lamb and Napier all year long. His goal was to win at UConn, not develop Andre Drummond.

Too bad for him, he should have picked Kentucky and Calipari then.

5 teams passed on Lillard, remember that! The best player in the draft, and he got drafted by the great Blazers. Big win!

I have a hard time seeing Drummond not at least being a rotation player for a long time. He already seems more then capable of playing defense at an NBA level, and his size is quite insane. I don't think people realize that he weighs 280 pounds at 18 years old. He looks like he could easily add quite a bit more weight too. Of course he is raw, but when looking at guys who have the potential to be an all star at the center position the only two I remember that looked as capable in that sense in the past 5 years were Cousins and Oden.
Shooting 30% on free throws is scary though. People talk about guys shooting at like 50-60% being liabilities, and I don't think that's really a huge deal, but if you have a guy shooting 30% in big minutes, I think that could be a huge problem. Beyond that, I have to wonder if he just has an awful offensive touch.

I agree. Kentucky at least is honest about the whole farce that is college basketball.

Calipari develops his players quite a bit.

He was honestly a safer bet coming out of college. Drummond is a prime example of high risk high reward.

I agree with you. Not just Terrence Ross but I don't see how Drummond realistically should have fallen out of top 5.

People should have examined the circumstances of his year at UCONN.



Guy is beasting in the preseason, and looks like the best player in the draft so far (along with Lillard).

This is why teams like the raptors will likely stay bad.
