That third sentient sponge you have given up on in the back of the soap dish, that is all too ready to disintegrate when called upon, that is Greg Monroe. A crumbly, albeit tall, instrument you use to clean up your franchise’s mess.
Rumor has it that he is headed to Beantown. Not much to clean-up there but Monroe would swiftly wipe those boards at the Fleet Center.
During the 2013–14 season, Monroe recorded his third consecutive season with 1,000-plus points and 600-plus rebounds, joining Grant Hill as the only Piston to do so since 1994–95. In the parlance of classic car enthusiasts, Monroe kept the team VROOOMMINNGG.
Monroe was a DNP at Dallas on 1/31 but in the previous game he managed 14 points on 6-8 shooting during 23 minutes. Outside of the obvious contenders, who would pass on Greg Monroe?
At 6’11”. Monroe is a rim protector and the bassist of his band. He constructs the rhythm that this Knicks offense plays, he tunes in on the tenor sax of Porzingas by also offering the 11 points and 8 rebounds he gathered against the Knicks and Pacers respectively.
In the midst of the torrent of the Russell Westbrook’s, LeBron James’, and Lonzo Ball’s (Yes, I said it), Greg Monroe has continually racked rebounds, plus/ minuses, and DEED-UP lesser-thans.
