Summary: It only comes along once in a while that an 18-year-old possesses the size, strength and athleticism that Drummond does. While he is still very raw in his all-around development, the sky is the limit for the UConn freshman, which is why he will likely be one of the top three picks in the 2012 NBA Draft. It likely will take him a year or two before he is ready to be a consistent NBA contributor, but he has the tools to be the next dominant big man in the league.
Player Comparison: Dwight Howard/Kwame Brown. Will he be the next Dwight Howard or the next Kwame Brown? Both Howard and Brown entered the league at a young age, but loaded with potential, which is why they were No. 1 picks. Drummond looks the part but until he spends a couple years in the league, it is hard to get a real gauge as to whether he will be a flop like Brown, or make the most of his gifts and turn into a franchise center like Howard.
Walter your inability to bet the Patriots all year with Brady on the team is inexplicable. Yes, since Brady came back from suspension, you bet the Patriots 0 times, even though they covered as decent and often huge favorites. Why? Why are you more afraid than Goodell is to show up at Foxborough to bet on a great team to beat inferior oponents by a large margin? You lost out on a lot of money. As for the Patriots defense who will be "overwhelmed" by Pittsburgh hahaha, the Patriots defense has stepped up when it needed to. Logan Ryan who is not even the best DB let alone CB on the team just had a dominant game covering one of the best wide receivers in the league. And you're going to say that Brady can't go stride for stride against Big Ben who, with his 0 TD performance last Sunday, once again proved that he has turned into an awful road playoff QB? You know what 0 TDs will win you in the AFC Championship game? I don't believe that betting on Pitt getting 6 points is a bad decision - seeing as I may do the same. But to predict the Patriots to straight up lose is laughable. The advantage they have on defense and coaching is pretty big and they may even be even offensively solely because Brady has been using Edelman more and more and Dion Lewis's return has shown to be very important.
