The best Pistons article you will read today, and it’s on Andre Drummond

James Herbert of Harwood Paroxysm knocked it out of the park with his profile of Andre Drummond:

Andre Drummond didn’t have a driver’s license when he moved to Detroit this past summer. His mother, Christine Cameron, gave him rides so he could get around the city and train at the Pistons’ practice facility. She’s currently living with him and his younger sister, Ariana, just a short drive — which Drummond now can do on his own — from the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Drummond is 19 years old. His three favorite movies are March of the Penguins, Happy Feet and Happy Feet Two. Last year, he was the world’s largest Gumby for Halloween. Asked to sketch something for the NBA’s trading card partner at the Rookie Transition Program, he produced the bugged-out Kirby at the top of this post.

His age isn’t immediately obvious looking at him, though. While the majority of rookies need to fill out their frames, Drummond’s draft preparation involved shedding extra weight so he could be lighter on his feet. Listed at 6’10 and 270 pounds, Drummond is easily the most physically imposing player in his draft class and on his team. He has center strength with wing player agility and athleticism. He covers ground on defense and scouts salivate. He dunks and blocks shots and fans fawn.

He did these things last year at UConn and the previous two at St. Thomas More high school. At each stage, though, the conversation surrounding him changed more than Drummond did.

If that doesn’t entice you to read the whole post, you’re crazy. Read the whole post.

    I had to double take at those per 36 numbers. I had heard they were ridiculous, but never bothered to look them up for myself. Whatever happens this year, it’s going to be good to be a Pistons fan again in the near future.

    After seeing what the Kings are going through with Cousins, I could not be happier with the Monroe (who will probably end up as the best player from that draft) and Drummond as our front court of the future.
