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.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
