    Opening night is tonight gentlemen, as far as Huskies are concerned Andre will be center stage tonight at 8pm EST against the Hawks.

    Cleveland at Chicago with the POTUS in attendance should be exciting as well.

    I think Stanley Johnson is going to be an All Star.

    Agreed, I have a feeling this tweet is going to live on in infamy

    Only to be outdone by a Chad Ford tweet next year. And another one the year after that.

    Big statement performance from the Pistons and more importantly Andre. He is cementing himself as the next superstar big after Davis. This will be great for the UConn family, and more importantly recruiting, we need to get our NBA profile back up.

    Back to back against Utah will be telling. The Pistons bench is very iffy, Blake, Meeks, Johnson, Baynes, need some scoring from Johnson from that crew.

    Drummond was just racking up rebounds so easily, crazy to watch. Glad to see him get off to a great start for the season! I hope he can keep it up.

    Am I crazy or did I not count 3 blocks in that video? Guess one of em wasn't official counted.

    I distinctly remember Andre's draft when he fell to the Pistons at 9 or whatever it was, and the look on the Piston's owner/gm's face was a textbook image of "giddy beyond control." They were stupefied and ecstatic that they had the dumb luck to get Andre. To this day can't believe that so many teams passed on what was obviously a very rare physical talent.

    Quick reminder of who went ahead of him:
    Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bradley Beal, Dion Waiters, Thomas Robinson, Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes, Terrence Ross.

    Terrence Ross? Lord, there is a lot of regret in that list.

    The only teams that will have no regret from that draft are NOLA and Portland. Everyone else messed up by passing on Andre.

    WOW I did not remember that MKG, Waiters, TRob, Ross went ahead of him. I can't believe the Hornets could have had Andre and Kemba, that would have been fun to watch

    It was my impression that Lamb wouldn't be playing (ankle injury).

    Drummond is 14 for 21 from the line so far this season.

    Small sample, but last year it took him until game 11 to hit 14 free throws.

    It's encouraging, he started the game 6 for 6 from the line.
