    dude he is a rookie with less than 30 games played.surrounded by a bunch of other guys with less than 150 games played. If he played for someone else youd be on here saying " oh man we should of got someone like zeller"

    Did all of you guys that are in love with Drummond actually watch him last year and expect him to be good in the NBA? I know personally when I watched his highlights from high school though "Holy shit if the Cavs get him we will be unstoppable" but then I watched a few UConn games and realized how absolutely horrible that team was with 2 lottery picks on it. He would literally just disappear for entire games.

    I am genuinely shocked that he is actually looking good and would have been quite disappointed if we were the ones to take him at the draft.

    No.

    I did not want anything to do with Zeller on draft night (I was pretty neutral, really, now that I think about it. He is and will be a marginal player) and I still don't really care about him. He might be a nice back up someday. Might be.

    I think you purposely forgot that Zeller is what 15 years older than Drummond?

    Wow, you're "shocked" lol. Most people who felt Drummond deserved to go higher felt that with his raw athleticism and size, he would be a bigger version of D'andre Jordan. So far, that is what he is bringing to the table as a rookie and a doing a solid job.

    Tornicade can drink the kool-aid all he wants, but the Cavs would be in a much better position if they drafted Klay Thompson and Drummond or even Faried and Drummond.

    No shit. The Cavs would also be in a much better position if they never drafted Luke Jackson.

    We passed on Drummond, he was a risky ass player. We got Dion. Deal with it.

    This is an "Andre Drummond" thread located in a section called "Around the NBA". Cavs talk belong in the Cavs section.

    I'm not saying Waiters won't be good, but I'd feel much better if we had taken Drummond. I stand by that.

    I'm not even very upset with where the Cavs stand, basically all I am saying is they have a bunch of mediocre picks (besides their own) and they haven't done anything with them yet. The likelihood of getting a good player with any of those picks be it via trade or just using the pick is very low.

    I've watched about 40 minutes of college ball this season so truth is I don't know what the deal is with Len. I know he had one game against Tucky and everybody began hailing him. I hope it is based on more than just that game. If we get him and he turns into a star, I won't be sick about Drummond anymore.

    If you're going to compare TYLER ZELLER to ANDRE DRUMMOND in the ANDRE DRUMMOND thread, I'm going to shred your invalid and ridiculous opinion to pieces, not just ignore it.

    If you notice, each of my points relates back to Andre Drummond.

    Kahuna was telling you to stop expecting people to not talk about Andre Drummond in the thread titled Andre Drummond. Which would be awesome.

    Drummond is better than we expected, and should get a lot more playing time once the Pistons are out of the playoffs and make a deadline move. Zeller is in the same boat for the Cavs. Let's do this without insults.

    Zeller is better than expected, or Zeller is going to get more playing time for the Cavs? If you're talking about future franchise centers, I don't think it's even a debate.
