Cousins vs Monroe

I'm surprised nobody is talking about this matchup that comes on next on NBATV.

Should be an interesting matchup. Who'll have the better game?

Hmm probably Monroe, but I'll be rooting for Cousins though. I wouldn't be surprised if both of them had good games, but I don't think Monroe can guard Cousins or out rebound him for that matter.

Where could I watch this at online?

Cousins because its his

Cousins because its his debut, and not only that but he is more assertive than Monroe. So far Monroe has showed the skill he has but needs to score the ball when he has a chance.

Cousins

He may have his way a little with Monroe as he is bigger and more physical. Monroe still should be able to be productive, as he is quicker than Cousins.

griffin isnt playing. and it

griffin isnt playing. and it would be the opposite jammin since this is cousins first game and he hasnt played in awhile were as monroe has already played two games. i think it will be interesting both are pretty good at the other weakness. cousins power while monroe more speed.

that must have been posted

that must have been posted before monroe started playing better..theres a common theme in the summer leauge. guards and sf jacking up shots and big men not getting alot of touchs to score. every once in awhile you get a game where the guards are tryna set up the big men. t.white isnt one of them, hes looking more for his shot

Maloof just just during the game that the Kings will likely sign Donald Sloan and bring him to training camp.

Im impressed with Cousins passing so far, he looks very alert and eager to find open teamates.

Tyrese rice reminds me of a poor mans brandon jennings he can score but he isnt a great playmaker he can be a good backup point guard for a team

Whiteside is a great defender

Whiteside is a great defender you can see the potential but he seriously has no offense in his game

Cousins

It is just summer league, but he looks good. He has a good feel for the game and can pass well for a 19 yr. old center. He has some moves in the post.

I can't wait to see Cousins

I can't wait to see Cousins up against another big man that's his size, etc. I already know he can dominate smaller big men.

As long as Cousins keeps his weight and attitude in check, I think he's going to be a great player. I'm impressed with his skills and the way he moves to be how big he is.

Whiteside is going to be a great helpside defender in the NBA. He has amazing length, timing and gets off of his feet quickly.

Tyrese Rice is nowhere near

Tyrese Rice is nowhere near as good as Brandon Jennings. Not even a poor mans version LOL. The only similarities they have is that they're left-handed.

I'm glad Sacremento signed Donald Sloan. He was a big-time player at Texas A&M and no one ever talked about him. He's a tweener guard though, but he's very strong and has decent quickness to get in the lane.

poor mans version is a good comparison. we are talking about jennings right now in a season where he was a pretty good player. above average so a poor mans version would be below average. you may not think it fits but i do...anyway tommorrows match up should be interesting between cousins and caracter... and i still dont see anywhere where blake is suppossed to play bryant24...i didnt see it anywhere on espn ...i did to sofo is suppossed to play though which should be interesting especially since some of the euro guys on here said he could dominate int he nba right now

I'm REALLY hoping Blake Griffin plays, but I doubt it. I see no point for them to put him on the floor.

Wouldn't they have to be

Wouldn't they have to be comparable though. I mean, Rice doesn't play like Brandon Jennings. They're both just left handed. That's literally were it ends

I know Rice too. H had like

I know Rice too. H had like 40 points on UNC the year they won the title. Great college player no doubt. BUT, he's nowhere near the ball-handler, shooter, or passer that Jennings. He's also much less flashy, and not near as quick and athletic.

Rice is a SG trapped in a PG's body. Jennings is one of the most dynamic playmakers in basketball passing and scoring. He's a PG through and through. They literally play 2 totally different ways.

Dee Bost, who just left Mississippi State and is playing overseas (he left too early and pulled out of the draft...ineligible to return to school) is a poor mans version of Brandon Jennings. Most haven't seen him play, so I don't fault you if you haven't, but he's much more like Jennings than a Tyrese Rice is.

you obviously havent seen him

you obviously havent seen him play this past year overseas so i guess i can see how you cant see he's a poor mans jennings since you dont have much to go on besides college so like i said before he's not a poor mans jennings to YOU, which is cool.. everyone doesnt see the same thing

How is a guy that plays like

How is a guy that plays like a SG comparable to Brandon Jennings? They play nothing alike LMAO. Wow. Tyrese Rice and Brandon Jennings? I don't get it at all. They literally don't play nearly the same way.

Hassan Whiteside

Hassan Whiteside is so similar with DeAndre Jordan's situation though... Raw talent... Good shot blocker... Long and super athletic... But he needs to work on his free throws though... He has a good stroke way better than Noah's... LOL...

Whiteside's free throws are

Whiteside's free throws are so bad that it looks like he doesn't even try because he knows that he is going to miss anyway. It seems like he just throws the ball up there for good measure. A lot of bad free throw shooters look like that actually..
