It seems like there’s always one player who gets hit with the ultimate buzzword when it comes to the annual HR meeting of hiring new talent to each of the 31 NBA organizations. Also known as the NBA Draft.
Two years ago, it was Demarcus Cousins. Four years ago, it was Russell Westbrook. Eight years ago, it was Josh Smith. There are other examples, but I was working on my arithmetic with my little cousin over the phone. 2 to the 1st power is 2. 2 to the 2nd power is 4. 2 to the 3rd power is 8. My apologies, I’m getting off topic. So of course there’s been a player pegged with labels like “a ton of talent” but is also “a project, with flawed mechanics.” He’s been pegged as a possible top-5 pick in the draft, and bloggers and journous are teeing off on this person being a bust almost immediately.
That person would be Andre Drummond of the Connecticut Huskies.
