Andre Drummond vs Thomas Robinson: college narrative vs NBA reality

1

Saw this on everyone's favorite website, RealGM. It's an excerpt from Jonathan Tjarks's book about the NBA draft. I post it here because he gives a neat assessment of Andre Drummond and how scouts were looking at the wrong things, allowing him to slip to #9 in the draft. Here's a bit I really liked: "If [Drummond] were an NFL prospect, the draft conversation around him would be much different. The NFL scouts would have taken one look at him in the combine and lost their mind - Drummond had measurables as good as any prospect coming into the NBA in the last generation." Yeah. We have that guy.
