Andre Drummond really loves penguins

Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Monroe, who despite his stoic front has a playful side, called across the court to Drummond on Saturday, “Hey, Happy Feet!” after learning earlier in the day that Drummond, who says his favorite animal is a penguin, lists his three favorite movies as “March of the Penguins,” “Happy Feet” and “Happy Feet 2.” For as physically imposing and mature as Drummond might appear, there’s an almost childlike quality to him that reminds those around him that he really is just 18.

    Can i go way off the Grid on this….LETS talk what if he is the real deal…I mean for real…. He was NOT COACHED AT UCONN!

    Theres a game against Syracuse and he dominated Fab Melo… and all of his points came from drop step dunks, alley-oops and putbacks…. he is SO RAW….

    Remember that the movie Blue Chips and Shaq played that one Kid “Neon Boudeaux’ that is Andre drummond ….

    In real, Real life…. Shaq was a dominate college player played 3 years, but he was coached to be a dominate big man, if Drummond is ever coached to be a dominate big… he is the next Shaquille Oneal…. He is already bigger,stronger and more athletic than Dwight Howard and Amare Stoudamire….were at his age…

    SO IN A “WHAT IF” THIS KID IS THE REAL DEAL SCENARIO…he is the 2nd coming of Shaq….but right now he is “Neon Boudeaux’

    Oh i said all of that to say…shaquille is nothing but a 40 year old kid that still thank superman is real…. so let Drummond have his penquins as long as he dont think they can real sing or break out in a flash mob its okay with me

      Bah, I hope Drummond is more graceful than Shaq. I would love it if he became the next Arvydas Sabonis without all the leg injuries that gets to play in the NBA during his explosive prime. He would have to get his passing and shooting skills way up, but a guy can dream can’t he?

      Haha my co-worker says that too.

      Seriously though, no-look behind-the-back and over-the-shoulder passes to Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey.

    Next Amare? Next Ibaka? Next Howard? Next Kwame? Let’s hope he’s not next Greg Oden nor Thabeet. For now he’s just next to a couple of rookies trying to find a spot. He’s just Drummond and I really hope the name Drummond dismisses all “next” stuff and just become a synonym to greatness.

    It is an exciting thought… If Drummond becomes just decent as far as “offensive skill level” he’s a potential 10-year all star center. We just need to be patient and hope it happens. He’s so young that he could easily take 5 years to reach that level, assuming he eventually does. If we’re fortunate, Pistons could be a huge joy to watch as he slowly matures as a player. If he ever becomes a genuinely skilled player, look out…

      Yeah i think there is a good chance that Drummond could take as long  as Jermaine O’Neal to develop. It took O’Neal 5 years to break out in the year he was traded from the Pacers to the Trailblazers to click.

    I know the media is trying to give insight into who Drummond is as a person and that the Pistons want to temper expectations for him but could they please not make this kid a joke before he even gets a chance.  Some things just don’t need to be reported.  so he’s 18 an still a big kid I think we all got it by now, as long as he is working hard and trying to improve he could be watching Rainbow Bright for all I care.

      I don’t understand how it makes him ‘a joke?’ Personally, I certainly don’t want solely fluff coverage, but at this point, there’s nothing to analyze with Drummond yet. We know he’s talented, young, raw and untested. And we know he likes Penguin movies and that Greg Monroe makes fun of him about that. It’s obviously not serious coverage, but I also think it is important, considering how bad the team chemistry/locker room on this team was just a short time ago, to show that these guys do actually like each other, joke around, are embracing an impressionable rookie, etc.

        I am sure if they make Drummond wear a Happy Feet backpack around all year as his rookie initiation he will grow up very quickly. You could only imagine how funny it would look :-)
