Speaking of which, not a big deal at all, but how was that play not a clear path foul?

I recognize Cousins' skills but for me, right now he just seems like too much of a knucklehead for me to want to take him over either Drummond or Monroe. I recognize that might be a poor basketball skills choice, Cousins is just feeling like a more problematic Derrick Coleman right now.

I stated that he was probably the best prospect in the draft and everyone laughed. He who laughs last...

at this point of his career, there's no need for him to log big minutes for he might gas out for hurt the team

having said that, I can see him getting close 25 minutes a game come March

I agree there's no super pressing need to throw 35 minutes a night at an already steadily growing youngster but in reference to his minutes, he's already averaging about 23 a night for the last month or more, so he's basically already in that 20-25 minutes a night range.

If OKC had the Toronto pick last year instead of this year (Impossible, yes) they probably would have taken Drummond. Westbrook/Lamb/Durant/Ibaka/Drummond/Jones GOAT 24 and under core of all time?

stickying with the howard comparisons; strangely, dwight has the shorter wingspan, and shorter height, yet he has the higher standing reach, i guess dwight has a much shorter neck?

Could win more games with him on the floor but what's the point? I think they are one more piece away, and they will get that player next draft. Will be a lot more Piston fans next year.

He'll be better than Dwight in a few years if the Pistons can manage him well

Per 36 he averages 14 points, 13 rebounds, 1.5 steals, 3 blocks, 1.5 turnovers and he wouldn't foul out

Dwight is stubborn and not always the smartest when playing offense, but he naturally was able to score 20 ppg with 13 rebounds in his sleep. At the same age They are about the same in my eyes with Dwight being a better conditioned 19 year old.
