I think he's talking about Drummond and Lamb. I agree with BC to an extent in that drafting talent over maturity annually can net you a core that shows flashes but never puts it together (early 2000s Clippers, present Kings). Drummond seems like a good kid, though. And the potential of him and Val wreaking havoc in the paint would have been too enticing for me to pass up.

That said, I'm digging Ross. Anybody else notice how quick he is running shooters off the line and reacting to their first step? Quick feet, quick hands. He has tools be an elite defender, with a jumper. That's good value at 8, even if he doesn't develop much of a slashing game.
