   2012 NBA Draft Diary
2012-06-30

Pick 9: Andre Drummond goes next to Detroit, a risky pick with a possibly high reward that a team so thoroughly moribund until this point can afford to make. Drummond, who looks like the love child of Amare Stoudemire and Al Horford, takes to the stage to the sound of his own biological field notes, as Jay Bilas goes to town with the phyical description of this unpolished athletic specimen. Bilas's penchant for doing this led to a drinking game being created in his honour a few years ago, and Bilas, a man of the world, knows about it. He even referenced it in last year's broadcast. Jay Bilas, it seems, wants to get you drunk.

(Remember Amare and Al's wedding? I do. Cracking afternoon. Good buffet spread, I seem to remember. Oh no wait they hate each other.)

Drummond joins the growing list of criers tonight, while Mark Jones describes how Drummond first left high school early to go to UConn, and now leaves college after only one year to come to the NBA. This is potentially disconcerting news framed in a positively light (heartbreaking loyalty, etc), and the only real surprise comes Drummond doesn't walk off from his interview half way through.

(This would have been the worst joke of the night had Jones himself not topped it, first asking Andre about his questionable motor, then wrapping things up with the punchline "Detroit knows about good motors, right?" I really like Mark Jones in this role, but not even my dad would laugh at that. Still, cheers for falling on your sword for me there.)

We won't know until it's over quite whether or not Drummond's career is a reminder of why mental make-up tests shouldn't be too overvalued in light of a player's actual abilities and impact, but the indications from his rookie season suggest that it will be.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
