You've just described my neighborhood in Billings, Montana.
You made us remember Kuester? I don't understand your point mate.
SF: Mitchell PF: Smith C: Drummond Think of the no-fly zone that we could set up with these dudes. With Pope at SG, who is considered a stronger than average defender, we could have the worst defensive PG in the World on the court and it wouldn't matter. Siva Pope Mitchell Smith Drummond Our one-possession game ending defensive unit?
Tony Mitchell looks really impressive. I think he goes to the top of the "If the clueless coach didn't have an agenda against winning he would start this guy" list.
Mitchell, Smith, and Drummond should be issued helmets to protect them from the rim. Could be intimidating too... unless we were doing a lot of losing and they came off as special. In regards to the clueless coaches, I think it's fair to say that Dumars came to the realization in each of those cases that they were indeed clueless. By the way, on youtube, I keep getting pop up adds for Megadeth's new album... SUPERCOLLIDER. Could be Stuckey's theme song.
We need to start this kid. Let GM and Smith come off the bench as supersubs.
Watching that video felt like an And 1 mix tape. I was waiting for someone to yell out.........."OHHHH BAYBEEEEEE!!!!" lol I can't wait to see him in Summer League today.
I can't figure out why Joe would draft a Tony Mitchell, when we already have a Tony Mitchell tearing it up for the Mad Ants. Talk about confusing. NBA Development League: Fort Wayne Mad Ants Forward Tony Mitchell Named NBA D-League Rookie of the Year
That would be awesome to put both of them in the game at the same time. The announcers would have a field day with this.
Summer league games are televised on NBAtv this year btw. Burke on now. Pistons game this afternoon.
Positive comments on Tony Mitchell from Pistons’ assistant | Mean Green Blog
You could make an OSL highlight reel of Mitch's goaltending calls and after-the-whistle ducks all by themselves. He's my early pick for 2014 NBA Slam Dunk Champ at Allstar weekend.
Mitchell made a lot of good decisions with the ball. He didn't over do it and played within himself. He had a sweet post pass from the top of the key into Drummond that resulted in a replay worthy jam. I liked his handles. He never really tested it in traffic but he could get around the open court with confidence and had the control to make something happen if the opportunity presented himself. He needs a LOT of development. He's like a 4-5 year guy. I couldn't get a read on how strong he was but he was in the mix a fair amount. I see a lot of similarities with Jerebko. More raw and with greater upside.
Is Tony Mitchell > Amir Johnson as a prospect?
Sounds like it to me.
Has the potential.... but that is the dangerous word.... if he had played at 100 percent in college last year he would have been a lottery pick, so lets see once the season starts does he stay hungry....
Hope is there, and the risk is low.
I like him.
He's more skilled than Amir. He's a better athlete than Amir (don't get me wrong, Amir is a great athlete - Tony is even better!). IMO, the sky is the limit for this dude. He has some gifts that other players just don't have. The only doubts that I have are with his heart and his brain.
Andre Drummond on Tony Mitchell: I shall call him...mini-me. There are a lot of similarities. The question marks about the effort level of each player are rooted in a bad environment. It looks like tony will benefit from the peer group of professional basketball players. Its important that the organization has the proper vision and development for him.
