Austin Daye named Drew League Player of the Week

Drew League (hat tip: @MR_KJS):

PLAYER OF THE WEEK FOR WEEK 1Austin Daye (Detroit Pistons, Athlete’s Renissance) -  28 Pts, 11 Rbs, 5 Asts, 2 Blks, 2 Stls

This probably isn’t the stiffest competition for an NBA player – though, James Harden and DeMar DeRozan played during the last non-lockout offseason – but I don’t really care. Daye, more than anything, needs confidence. He could win MVP of the Mott Community College day camp (ages 6-15), and that would serve him well.

    Gotta love Daye man. The preseason and offseason killer.

    If former Mott players Kevin Tiggs or Lamar Rice are counselors at the camp this year, I would take either one of those guys on the Pistons roster over Daye.

    Daye loves that Drew League. I remember him ripping it up during the lockout too. He should just play out his career in that league and like the Michael Jordan of the Drew.

    The problem I have with this is just like during the lockout, Daye was playing everywhere and doing well. His problem is not his skills, it’s his lack of strength. I remember a game against Cleveland and he had Gibson guarding him and he tried to post him but he couldn’t move him one inch so he took a turn around fade away jumper. 6’11 against 6’3 and he takes a fade away jumper. When he tries to dribble, the least little contact he loses control of the ball so when he’s on the floor he runs to the corner and hopes for a pitch out. He should be a match up nightmare at the 2 or the 3 with his height advantage at either spot but he’s not strong enough to take advantage of it. Hopefully Joe told him that if he comes back with the same body he has now then there will be a seat at the end of the bench waiting for him.

    Did he ever finish that push up circuit training from Arnie Kander?  I’d like to see him finish one thing before his career is over.

    I hope he continues his workouts with Clay Matthews.  Matthews does not look like a guy who likes his time wasted, so Daye will either work hard OR we will read a tweet about them no longer working out together.

    The added strength will work help him with his confidence.

    STILL

    It’s all talk until you put it together during the season.
