How many bigs come into the league polished like Tim Duncan?
Drummond's a young kid with HUGE upside. If he's athletic and doesn't have any physical ailments or attitude issues you just don't pass on the guy. Not when he could be solid at worst and an absolute gamechanger/franchise-saver at best.
Ross is far from a finished product as well... let's not kid ourselves here.
