Every one wants to talk about the negatives with this guy, but never sit and think how his skills can help out DTOWN. Monroe is 6'11 250, just being skilled with that body frame gives you an advantage in this league. He does not need to have a lot of touches to score, thats kind of like Jonas. We now can throw the ball down low to run our offense, this is something that players like KG, Paul Gasol, and David Lee can do it is a real asset to have a player like this on your team. He can step out and hit the 14 foot jump shot, and he can take players off the dribble. He runs the floor like a small forward which is not only key on the fast break but getting back on defense also.
It would be nice for Sheed to be around to team him the NBA game, but if Big Ben is back next year he can help out in teaching him how to be a good help defender and positioning on rebounding. We have some world class trainers and that will help elevate his athleticism. I think we got a guy who is going to step up and be a leader on this team, someone who is going to let his game do the talking for him on the court. Kuester already said that he will expand his playbook to accommodate the skill that Monroe posses. He has some room to grow as does everyone in this draft but I think his skills and body type will allow him to grow into 1 of the most complete players in the league. If you don't know about this guy DTOWN get ready there is no other player with is skill set.
He was rated as the top passer in the draft. Some try to use his TO ratio to knock that fact but you got to remember this, he will not have that many TO opportunities in the league he had the ball more in college cause of his role in the Princeton offense. Monroe is going to be a headache to guard, he was 1 of the most complete players coming out of college. I think he will win the rookie of the year.
