Greg Monroe declares himself a leader


Greg Monroe, via Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

"“I plan on being a lot more vocal in the locker room,” Monroe said. “I’m definitely gonna be more vocal.”"

I hope so, as Monroe proved himself one of the team’s most grounded players last season. If his teammates are following his lead, that bodes well.

But plenty of players say they’re going to lead. Fewer do. Actually leading during the season, not just saying it, will be Monroe’s real test.
