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.
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.

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.

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.
Tune in on Fridays at 12 noon for Sport-a-Facts with Ro Brown and Wednesdays at 1pm for Sports Revolution to hear me speak my mind on all things Saints and Pelicans related and more.
Only on WBOK 1230 AM.
Feel free to PM me for more details.
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.
