Obviously, according to the ridiculous Rookie of the Year voting that had [Greg] Monroe finish sixth, basketball watchers outside of Detroit have no idea how good Monroe actually is. He’s no worse than the third best player in this draft, and based on rookie seasons, he was much better than [DeMarcus] Cousins this year. But how about long-term potential? I assume most voters picked Cousins partially because he’s viewed as a player with unlimited potential whereas Monroe is viewed more as a complementary player who works hard but will never be a franchise cornerstone type player. Based on the expectations Monroe shattered for his rookie season, however, I’m not convinced that his potential isn’t as limitless as Cousins’.

From Patrick Hayes at PistonPowered. Read the whole piece for an interesting breakdown of Monroe vs. Cousins. Controversy!
