    Dajuan Summers has the NBA body. 6-8, 240
    Like a 14 and 7 guy with 25 min.
    Can he run?
    Can he dribble?

    I clicked just to click.

    I don't wanna risk calling my shot either way.
    He's either gonna be good or bad and I'll claim that I knew the deal all along once it plays out.

    I'm pullin' for him to be the next Walt [strike]Bellamy[/strike] Bulimic though!

    BDL, I put you down for wishy-washy.
    At least JD drafted some big guys that can run and shoot.

    I voted paper thin and soft also, but this was still a great pick by a great man and I thank Joe D for blessing my piddly life with his presence.

    Voted....Yes, he'll do a lot of bench [STRIKE]DL[/STRIKE] and [STRIKE]Euro[/STRIKE] then contribute

    Hopefully Tayshaun can teach him some of his trademark moves. My personal favorite is when he palms the ball in his left hand for a couple of minutes.....builds my anticipation

    In short, Daye is a semi-project!

    2T4, that's still wishy-washy.
    But a stance well respected by the members at large.

    Alright, here we go.

    True that skinny dudes like Tayshaun and Daye can't stop anyone who wants to power over them. Back in the day when Tay was a great defender, he used his great length to force shooters to drive past him. When they did, he used his long arms and BB IQ to force them to drive around him into one of the Wallaces, who could pick up the slack.

    I watched multiple allstar Ray Allen for 2 years in Seattle. Ray couldn't stop anybody. Seriously. Darko could drive past Jesus Shuttleworth. (Save your breath Dave, I allready know). The reason he is a valuable player now is because of his scoring ability, and Kevin Garnett backing up his defensive shortcomings.

    If we can put a big/quick garbage man behind Daye to make up for his lateral quickness, the Pistons can cover his defense. If he can score like he did in college, than he has a future in the NBA.

    It's all about his work ethic, if he wants to be a solid player in this league he will have to work for it.
