NBA – Andre Drummond Represents Detroit In The 65th NBA All-Star Game

Posted on February 12, 2016 in Professional Sports News.

Pistons center Andre Drummond will be the lone representative for Detroit at NBA All-Star Weekend.

He will participate in the Slam Dunk contest tomorrow night against 2015 champion Zach LaVine from the Minnesota Timberwolves, Aaron Gordon from the Orlando Magic and Will Barton from the Denver Nuggets.

Drummond leads the NBA with 15 rebounds per game and 45 double-doubles and was named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team as a reserve last month.

He is the first Detroit player to make the All-Star team since Allen Iverson in 2009 and the first Piston to compete in the Slam Dunk contest since Jerry Stackhouse in 2000.

The 65th NBA All-Star Game will be held Sunday night at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
