Greg Monroe’s Key Strength
“You just have to come out and work, let the game come to you,” Greg Monroe tells HOOPSWORLD of his approach. “My coaches and my teammates have put me in a lot of good positions to be successful, so I just try to execute and try to follow through with the plans and do what I know I can do within myself. At the end of the day, I just want to make sure I’m making plays and I’m willing to do anything to help my team win.”
November was one of the best months of Monroe’s career, as he averaged 16.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game while shooting 48 percent from the field and 75 percent from the free throw line.
“He is another guy that has gotten better,” says Pistons head coach Lawrence Frank. “Each and every time he is out there he has made shots. He’s a guy that is a multiple-tool player in that he is not just a scorer but he is a very gifted passer. You can make the argument that he is the best passer on our team, and a very, very good rebounder. He has a big thirst and desire to want to improve and get better, he continues to make shots.”
