    Drummond is basically a 6'11" Reggie Evans

    Drummond is a big body, if he can get you garbage points and 10+ rebounds a game, you run with that. I honestly can't believe some of you guys are disregarding his effort and the impact he had on this game. If he was so bad, he would have fouled out.

    He is also 19 years old, he will get better, with reps.

    problem is that you see everything going south in his game at 5 min.

    His FG%, and his FT% (which drops substantially by 10%) and those are not rushed shots, he has the time... so in my opinion, he just disappears in the 4th. He always has.
    Almost everyone who has a high usage in the last 2 minutes of the game OBVIOUSLY get lower percentages. Clutch is harder than normal game time for obvious reasons. Its a pretty bad argument, Derozan is the only person who can beat the buzzer with a hand in his face, while fading at the elbow, and STILL have a chance of making it drop, albeit a smaller chance than a regular shot.

    Drummond is only 19. he may seem limited at this point but he has the right skills to develop into a franchise talent.

    Fuck Casey and fuck Lowry. There is no excuse for Bargs only getting 5 shots (only 2 in the 3rd) after scoring fucking 20+ points in the first half. This is fucking joke. How do you not feed the ball to your hottest player on the fucking floor?

    Can't agree. Evans, though strong and determined, is slow and earth bound. Drummond is much bigger and faster with good hands around the basket.

    He is an offensive hole, why are statistics the 'Key' to a good team? Seriously? Could you imagine just how redundant he would be besides Ed, Amir, and Val? He would only compliment Bargnani, who I fear wont be around to compliment for much longer.

    No one was passing Drummond the ball, there were no plays run for him. He made 13 points out of garbage, that our big men could not box out.

    I will take a player like that any day, he does not even need touches to get a double double.

    The only statistic that counts is that Drummond secured the win for his team.

    T Ross had no impact.

    (take out Drummond, and its a different game)

    Good hands around the basket!? don't make me laugh. I saw him grab offensive rebounds and just throw up prayers hoping the ball to go in. He has terrible touch around the rim, complete opposite of Monroe. Also he is not very fast, Reggie evans is like 30+ so obviously he's going to be significantly slower than he was when he was Drummonds age. I don't buy into this hype. Looking like a Kwame Brown, Hasheem Thabeet type pick to me. High risk, high reward picks are never good, most of the time they end up busts.

    You were saying trade Ross for Drummond, or how you wish Drummond drafted instead of Ross.

    I dont think you realize how stupid that sounds. Drummond would be a waist on our team, a FT insecurity, a limited offensive game, and would never find playing time ANYWAYS.
    Ross on the other hand, is the 3pt shooting defender we have been looking for. To develop Ross into a pro is our PRIORITY, and he is a much better compliment to this team than drummond, 100%

    .681 FG% on Drummond, that is not including todays 6/11. If he is throwing them up, than this guy is a much better athlete than a lot of people gave him credit for.... wait five years.

    Ironic that the non goaltending call would have given the raps the win. However, Lowry's selfishness on those last two possessions cost us the game, plain and simple. Also, how does a guy who goes 8/11 with 19 points in the first quarter only get 5 shots in the 2nd and 3rd quarters combined??? Our wings were absolutely dreadful tonight, going a combined 4/24 shooting!

    Drummond is ahead of Valanciunas at this point. No knock on JV's progress, just the way it is.

    Since when did this turn into a drummond thread? Toronto played a heck of a game. Last shot was pure and utter bull. Lowry trying to play hero ***
