    We could possibly Trade the 11th for a SG from any team or possibly a point guard
    We cannot lose the 6th
    There is no one Like Drummond that we could get through free agency and the draft

    there are plenty of players like drummond and better. the only thing he has going for him is his supposed "potential". there are plenty of players in the draft that have had a better college career than drummond, who only averaged 10 points a game and half of the games he played scored 5 or less. oh and 7 rebounds? put him against the best bigs in the world and expect him to do what exactly? if he couldn't compete in college what can you expect from him in the nba?

    give the kid a break. keep in mind, he is only 18 years old. he could easily be a franchise changing beast. probably 50/50. he's right on par for a young college center statistically.
    olajuwan averaged 8ppg and 6boards/game his freshman year at houston
    patrick ewing freshman year 12.7 ppg and 7.5 boards/game
    david robinson freshman year at navy 7.6 ppg and 4 boards
    tim duncan 10 ppg and 10 boards freshman year at WF.

    and thabeet averaged 6 points, 6 rebounds and 4 blocks his freshman season. the point being that too much is being expected from him at this point. but your statistics are encouraging.

    I think the real answer here is that draft gossip is always gonna overhype the players, whether it's Drummond or Lillard or Waiters or any of em.

    They're not in the NBA yet, never have played a game at that level ever.

    And yet people are talkin about how Drummond is "only potential" but Lillard is "potentially the next D Rose"! Neither is accurate because it's impossible to prove yet. Unholy, you keep mentioning how we need to stop going after 'potential', but that's all the draft could ever be... a draft isn't part of basketball, it's just part of the NBA promo-plan, to get people stoked on the next season, and all this overhype is exactly what it's designed for. JWood's stats show exactly that; you can not determine greatness by anything established at the level we've seen these players at.

    Maybe the only players we can talk about for anything other than 'potential' are the ones who've already put up stats in the NBA. If we need a sure bet at center or pg, maybe we should be looking at THOSE pros, and use these guys as the next best thing instead of vice versa.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
