Thread: 2012 NBA Draft Class update - 1st round

  1. #26
    The three players that I wanted from this draft was Drummond, MKG, and Sullinger.

    Really thought Thomas Robinson would have a much better early impact on the league. I had him as my preseason ROTY.

    Those three players are nice, but why is Anthony Davis not seen as a up and coming star in the league? I don't think Sullinger will ever be a star. The other two players could possibly anchor a franchise.

    I agree that Drummond is impressive in that video. But you can't tell that he's been more impressive than Davis.
    Davis is beasting right now while being 220+ lbs !

    I would still rather have Davis long-term over Drummond since I think Davis will be a Tyson Chandler type with a much better offensive game and Tyson Chandler is a damn good player in this league. Still, I like what Drummond is doing right now and he should get better.

    Emeka Okafor - Joe Smith - Carmelo Anthony - Manu Ginobili - Jason Williams

    Al Jefferson - James Posey - Aaron McKie - Shaun Livingston

    I'm interested to see what becomes of Drummond when they start him.

    Thomas Robinson is in a bad place in Sacremento. I think it's a black hole where talent goes to die.

    The Royce White situation is fascinating. From the Rockets perspective, they are have get him `comfortable' and stuff like that in. From his perspective, he's an injured as someone with a broken leg and is being asked to play.

    It's not entirely unlike the Eric Gordon nothing-on-the-MRI situation, frankly.

    It's truly fascinating. I don't blame either party. This really is ground being broken.

    Fascinating.

    Davis's ceiling is higher because he's far more offensively skilled. His jumper is mechanically sound, but incrementally off. Drummond can't even shoot more than 50% from the FT. But he is going to be a terror. Dude could be what Greg Oden could've become, only a little shorter and less skilled. Physically, he'll be without pier. Dwight Howard never could pull some of the moves Drummond can. Not coordinated enough.

    We almost had Davis and Drummond. Our opponents should be grateful Detroit got him first.
    Now I do voice overs. Finally!

    It was either Davis or MKG. No way we could have had both.

    I felt we could have traded down one with Charlotte and gotten their 1st in 2013.

    2012 NBA Draft Class update - 1st round

    ROY is down to Davis and Lillard easily. No one else is even in the picture. IMO lillard will take it hands down unless Davis can somehow get his average up to 20 and 10 which I don't see happening this year.
