During an off-day last week, the Pistons visited the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History and ate at Slows Bar-B-Q. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press:
Rookie center Andre Drummond, 19, said it was his first visit to a museum of any type.
"It was kind of a different experience for me," Drummond said. "We went down there and was really into it.
"It was just different, and I can’t really explain it to you. We really got into it and interacting with the different pieces there."
Many, though certainly not all, professional athletes are boring. They live sheltered lives nearly totally dedicated to their sport. For many, that’s the only way they reach such a high level.
So, it’s refreshing to see playing in the NBA has widened Andre Drummond’s worldview.
