Default DeMarcus Cousins vs Greg Monroe


Both were drafted into the league in 2010 as the 5th and 7th pick, respectively.

Who is better currently ? Which player has more potential to become a better player in the future ? Which player would you rather build a franchise around ?And who will have the better upcoming season ?

Cousin is better currently and probably has a better upside but Monroe acts like a grown man not a child... I would prefer Monroe on my team any day

I think this is one of those cases were Monroe is a more polished player, but Cousins has a lot more talent and ceiling and he just needs to tap into that and develop maturity to be that 20-25PPG, 10RPG player.

Being in Sacramento doesn't help this.

Cousins looks a much improved player this season with actual coaching, his 1 on 1 defence has been excellent and he's rotating on defence and is drawing a large amount of charges and getting deflections all game long. Only 1 game so far on offense has he had a bad game (due to shot selection) and even than he still managed to foul out Bogut who is a elite defender.

His passing, defence have both improved and his connection with Vasquez and #M16 looks very promising. With a pass first PG and actual offensive system he should be better than Monroe this year since Monroe is in a situation which won't maximise his strengths.

Depends really on the situation on which one you can consider better, I think Cousins has more potential on both ends but. I hope Pistons move Monroe somewhere he can thrive cause with Josh Smith and Drummond there I don't see it.

Two awful defensive big men with talented, but limited offensive games.... I would waive both immediately.

Sure you would. If I was a woman pregnant with you I'd wave you too.

Another guy in a similar age bracket and finally getting his chance to show off his stuff, with Al Jeff being traded is Favors from the Jazz.
How do people think he'll do?

Just going by preseason, it seems Enes Kanter has taken the lead big man role over there... But, do people see this continuing in the regular season, or will Favors step up?

Out of Favors, Cousins and Monroe, you have to take Cousins IMO. Beast offensively, and is athletic enough to become a great defender. Although with Favors, hes a beast defensively, but clearly needs to polish his game on the offensive side. Saying that though, he has made a ton of improvement on the offensive side, and his FT% has really shot up over the years.

If the Kings ever get a decent pick and roll pg, players to help space and Cousins decides to stop trying to prove he can play the perimeter at times also (we all know you could, big fella!), he would be the premiere low post scorer of the league. Lots of "ifs" but they're all in reach and doable imo.
