On a side note, it's weird to hear anyone saying they "grew up" watching Durant, who is what? 23?

I have nothing against Drummond, but based on what I saw of him at UCONN, this kid going to the NBA now is a joke. He's way too raw and needs probably 2 years unless he somehow improves a ton between the end of the college season and the NBA season.

I hate seeing these raw big men in the NBA way too early as projects, there's really no point for them to even be in the league yet, and a lot of the time, they don't pan out anyway.



Drummond wishes he had half of Duckworth's offensive skills.
Yea, GOBB's statement on it was pretty accurate. I watched the video, there was one point where a reporter straight up asked him "who do you compare your game to", in which drummond replies with a well-thought out (or well scripted) response, saying "i dont compare my game to anyone. I compare myself to andre drummond. I'm trying to model my own game and my own brand"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeSByhECZWw

that should pretty much put this thread to rest

does OP have an axe to grind with drummond or something? How in the hell can you twist someone's words that badly?

No one has showed any evidence that Chad Ford ever said that yet.

Oh god your smarter than this. First link one person posed the question in a thread where people are currently Watchin the combine. Not one quotes and agrees to what was claimed. Why? They are discussing verticals agility tests height measurements throughout the thread and not one says "yeah I heard that".

the very next post says 'yea, may hurt his stock'

Quote:
There is actual video footage at combine where he discusses who he looked up too and compares himself too. There are actual quotes from his mouth what is said. Sorry way more believable than random posters throwing out a statement where they themselves don't know the context in which it was said.

no reason why he cant have said both things, the kd comparison, and later in the day the, 'i compare myself to andre drummond' bit

why must they be mutually exclusive?

Quote:
These links prove nothing. I can in fact go on a msgboard and make a thread titles the same thing. Then you'll link that thread in here and say "I'm sure this guy didn't mis hear". Like come on.

so what? its all a conspiracy? all these other posters on different message boards, all just fabricated this story to make drummond look dumb? not to mention, they were all posted during the live show, when is the time chad ford supposedly said it





look, tbh, i really dont care. im sure these guys are exhausted, and id put little to no stock in interviews, but you cant act like theres no evidence to suggest that he compared himself to kd. theres plenty

Those links are pointless.

No one saw Drummond say it. They took what Chad Ford said who could have taken what Drummond said out of context. Chad ford writes for espn. No article or twitter comment speaking on it. We saw what Drummond said. It makes zero sense to believe he said what people claim via Chad Ford. It's retarded.

Someone is better off sending Chad Ford a twitter message as asking him to confirm what was said or asking Drummond too.

at people arguing what drummond said or didn't say when it's so obvious. Either provide direct video or material evidence that he said it or STFU

No there's no evidence both ways, that's the point. Actual reliable posters like GOBB, Shaqattack have already exposed this thread, which is why I quoted shaqattack to begin with. Nothing to see here gentlemen, just an exposed troll.
