Drummond on Detroit's Big 3

+

"We (Drummond, Monroe, and Smith) all can pretty much do the same thing. Josh obviously shoots the three but can also bring the ball up the floor and create for the other players. Greg’s passing of the ball and can create off the block…the same with me as I can create for people off the block. I can just grab rebounds, block shots, and dunk everything I get my hands on. It is just fun. We have never played with each other before even for Greg and me. We are figuring it out and it is all starting to come together."

"For myself, who has always prided himself on being a high character person, it definitely is an embarrassment. But it happened, right or wrong, and I’m moving on."

Where else but Grantland can you find such good sports writing? Hat Tip to Johnathan Abrams. If this article is any indication, his upcoming book on the prep-pro generation should be excellent!

Corey Maggette got cut by the Spurs, says he's going to retire. Another former Piston is..... oh what the hell it was Maggette, I can't wax poetic about Corey Maggette.
