    Bench him, he just doesn't fit with Davis.
    Let him play with Lebron when Davis sits: need spacing with AD

    How many point blank open dunk/layups can he miss?

    Didn't look too happy being taken out for Marc but I would try to get him minutes without AD. Just see him like Javale last year: becomes unplayable in the playoffs

    Who was it that was imagining here that Drummond and AD could be one of if not the best all time center / forward duos? That observation didn’t age well.

    As I said in the Gasol thread, I actually like what Drum and Marc bring together when you tell them to go out and play aggressive. Start Drummond, tell him that he needs to DOMINATE offensive glass like he did last night. Kick the ball out or take a shot if you've earned it with your physical play. We're not going to feed you too much, but we do encourage you to play physical and don't worry too much about fouling. Then split the minutes with Marc and good things will happen.

    I might be the only one here, but I like when I see aggressive and tough Drummond early with a box score that reads: 6/10/2, with 7 (!) offensive rebounds in only 19 minutes and a W. Know what I mean? If he's not demanding post touches and works hard, I like what he's doing.

    But how can you be that big, standing right under the hoop with no one guarding you and completely clank a layup? I literally don't get it.

    He has bad hands. He's not as bad as Kwame, but he's certainly not Pau Gasol either. He has bad touch around the rim. He thinks it's his game, but it's not. His game is being physical and gobbling up offensive rebounds. If he just focused on that and being mobile while switching on D (getting 2 steals per game), his numbers would go down - but he'd be a much superior player. Drummond simply needs to realize that less is more.
