    We got some love on the ESPN live feed on the Bulls - Spurs game. Yay

    Rondo with a triple double

    Monroe 19 pts 20 rebs... is he really as good as his numbers? I can't say I've watched many Detroit games this year.

    edit: Is the Laker game not on league pass tonight?

    He is a really, really solid player. Excellent fundamentals. No wonder he came out of Georgetown.

    we played the LOLcats.

    Yes, Monroe is a very good interior player, but it was Charlotte. Without Biyombo.

    How's his defense looking?

    Monroe is fine so long as he doesn't have to block a shot, so that's up to interpretation.

    Monroe is #2 in the NBA among centers in steals behind dwight howard, and he's 25th in blocks. And by 25th, I mean the 25-best center.

    I've seen him rip the ball from more guards at halfcourt than I've seen him swat shots into the stands. Laterally, he moves very well. Vertically? Not so much.

    He tried a reverse dunk tonight and got stuffed by the rim.

    I think you can be a good defender without blocking shots. Foster's done it for years.

    Some of the stat lines he puts up are definitely impressive.

    Harris just had 19points today, I think he wants to be traded.

    What Kstat said basically. He has good hands and nice lateral movement but he is not really a rim protector.

    From last year:



    I really like Monroe. He has all the tools to develop into a great player. I can see him sliding down to PF which would not be entirely bad if you take into account his excellent passing ability and hands.

    I'd like to watch the Pistons more, actually. It's too bad that their game times coincide with ours or the Bucks (another team I like watching).

    Foster is amazing at denying position and still altering shot trajectory without blocking it. Foster is a very smart defender. Monroe can be a similar defender. He is only 21 years old and he is certainly smart. So, once more he has all the tools. He seems to have the work ethic to use them as well. I'd really love a player like him on my team.

    The bottom line with Monroe is, he needs an athletic finisher under the rim to pass to, and he need a rim protector to have his back. He can take care of everything else.

    They don't necessarily need to be the same player but Anthony Davis wouldn't hurt my feelings at all....

    Good point.

    I don't see Detroit ending up with Anthony Davis, though. You don't tank hard enough. Hell, you could even make a late run at the 8th seed.

    That said, Anthony Davis wouldn't hurt anyone's feelings

    the clippers were slotted 8th last season when they won the lottery. The Bulls were slotted 9th when they won derrick rose. It's all blind luck. I don't get caught up in odds. Just roll the dice and tell me were i'm picking.

    Of course, if it's tanking you want, wait and see what happens to the Pistons in march.

    9 out of 10 games on the road (and 13 out of 18 stretching into april).

    The Pistons will be lucky if they aren't slotted 2nd or 3rd at that point.

    Well, those are valid points indeed.

    By the way, do you see the Pistons building around Monroe?

    him and knight. i remember kstat saying he's very high on the stuckey/knight backcourt.

    still think monroe is a 4 though (who plays well at 5, like horford)

    He has the skillset to be a 4 and the body to be a 5. Much better than having the skillset to be a 5 and the body to be a 4 if you ask me

    Knight could end up nicely. I haven't watched him enough yet.

    He's bigger than Horford. He's really interchangeable with the 4/5, he just needs a complimentary player next to him.

    On an irrelevant note, Orlando plays the Thunder tomorrow. That's nice

    The Masked Mamba dumped 31 on the Wolves last night. I'd love it if he slaughtered the Heat on Sunday.

    i'm hoping for a back to the '80's day. complete with cheap shots and late hits. maybe a couple of nice long suspensions.

    but it should be a real nice game to watch though.

    I'm happy for Faried. He was another guy I really liked in the draft.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    He's been getting some PT and producing of late. Thus the reason I've been posting his stats. I never had an interest in him in the draft, but glad to see he's playing well.

    I've been thinking about putting a thread together on the stats of the 011 drafted players. It depends on my time and my inclination, since I've been thinking about it for WEEKS now. I believe it would be interesting to see who is doing what in their rookie season. If someone else has an interest in doing it, feel free to do it as my feelings won't be hurt.
