Andre Drummond is in the Drivers Seat with Greg Monroe

Like it or not, (I love it) Andre Drummond is the Detroit Pistons franchise player. Joe Dumars and company may have wanted to build around Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight when they were drafted, but it’s clear to anyone who watches basketball that Andre Drummond falling into the Detroit Pistons lap at the #9 in 2012, was like hitting the lottery, literally. For non sports followers it’s like the Duck Dynasty crew being millionaires and having a show that has captured America.

That #@$% just doesn’t happen every day.

He’s as big as the Jolly Green Giant, as old as a freshman in college, has the body of a football player and the hands of great players past. To top it off he’s even got more to help him take it to the next level.

  • Rasheed Wallace as his big man coach.
  • Greg Monroe as his wing man.
  • Brandon Jennings to feed him the ball.
  • Chauncey Billups to show him how to win.
  • Josh Smith to knock down baskets and help him defend.
  • A sharp shooter from Italy.
  • A rookie that sounds like a Greek God.
  • And a franchise rooting for him.

I asked you who you thought would be the difference maker this season and you made it close, but Andre Drummond was the winner.

How can you not think he’s the guy if you’re a Pistons fan after watching him last season. He can easily shut down a defender.  Make someone look silly while defending him. Put up a double-double like it’s a walk in the park.  Or rally his team from a deficit just with his presence.

Sure, he needs to get his free throw numbers up, but if that’s his only fault go talk to Shaquille O’Neal how that worked out for him.

As a suffering long time Pistons fan I’m ready to hand this thing over to Dre and see what he can do with it.

I said in this post that whoever won the vote, was the cover boy of the November Schedule Wallpaper here at Need4Sheed.com as well as a special T-shirt I’m giving away.  Now we know that guy is a deserving Andre Drummond.

I’ll give you the details of how to win the shirt in my next post, so stay tuned.

    I wonder if we should talk about the fact Dre is dating a celebrity. Jenette Mccurdy from Icarly. And she got like 3mil twitter followers. most of them will probably become pistons fans now. Jenette even posted a pic of herself on instagram with a pistons jacket dre got her. Its fun

  4. Watched Swedens game JJ looked awful……hope and Sweden will win one game =( We lost vs Finland !!!

  5. Markov7 says:

    and just as i praised him he he obviously forgot to came on the game against turkey – few assists and lots of holes on defensive end…

  6. MathiasQ says:

    Today JJ and Jeffery Taylor vs Russia…hope we can see a good JJ today because we need a good bench this year!

    Gigi eliminated sweden =(

    The good thing about the Euro hoops tournament is that JJ and Gigi have been leaders for their respective teams.
    Even though JJ did not shoot well from 3 point land, he did have decent numbers overall for the tournament.
    Gigi also got major minutes and put up good numbers for Italy shooting over 40% from 3 pt land.
    That should help their confidence going into the NBA season. I see both of them being part of the second unit off the bench, along with Stuckey, and Bynum, KCP will be waiting for his chance if Billups gets injured or if Stuckey falters. I think that by the end of the season KCP will earn the starting role.

    Gigi lead Italy with 24 pts 7RB 3/5 from 3 pt land in loss to Croatia
