There were a ton of entries to the Andre Drummond T-Shirt giveaway simply because Pistons fans love Dre.

The winner of the T-Shirt is this tweet from @ItsameSethery

I said I was going to give one shirt away, but there was one Andre Drummond fan that caught my eye.

A Pistons fan from thousands of miles away from the D @c3dona decided to get creative with his entries and ask @Dre_Drummond_, @jennettemccurdy, @PeypeySiva3 and a slew of other people to RT his entry I have to send him a t-shirt just for being so creative and dedicated.

So @c3dona I’m an Andre Drummond Need4Sheed t-shirt is on it way from Detroit to Brazil!

Andre Drummond T ShirtIf you’re a Piston fan, you are a Andre Drummond fan. This is your chance to win a Andre Drummond T-Shirt courtesy of Need4Sheed.com. I designed this one especially for the Pistons fans who voted that Dre was going to be the difference maker this upcoming season for Detroit.

It’s easy to win.

Just follow me on Twitter and tweet this..

Hey @Need4Sheed_com I want my Andre Drummond T-shirt! @DRE_DRUMMOND_ is the man #Need4Sheed #AndreDrummond #Pistons

Enter as many times as you wish, I’ll pick a winner at random on September 13, so get your tweets in!.

Who wouldn’t want to proudly wear this?

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.

Will Bynum, as always was kind enough to do something special (besides dunking on 7 footers) for Pistons fans.  I put a call out to for you to to “Ask Will” a question.

You asked, and he answered.

We originally thought we were going to do a podcast, but due to technical difficulties we did it the old fashioned way.

So here we go…

From Damien Washington
Time to go down memory lane: The Bobcats are in town. 5:24 left in the 2nd. You looking over the shoulder of Gerald Wallace, Stuckey sets a screen for Charlie, you burst to the baseline….

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?!

Actually 2 or 3 plays before, we ran the exact play and twice I came off the pick, got into the paint, and got an assist and (I think) a basket,or foul. I knew Gerald Wallace was a gambler on defense, so I faked the pick and roll and went baseline..I saw Tyson Chandler and there it was….

(In other words: What made you decide, “You know, I wanna dunk” and then pull off said dunk against Tyson Chandler?)
The opportunity presented itself.

From Ziga Kranjec (Slovenia, Europe)
Will if you could go back in time and play against any NBA player, who would you most want to dunk on?

Bill Russell. Because I think he is one of the greatest defenders of all time.The ultimate defender. He made blocking shots an art. Not only did he block a lot of shots he altered just as many. I think the challenge of dunking on him would be a lot tougher and extremely exciting.

From Mike Brouty
Who has been the biggest inspiration in your life as far as motivating you to get you from where you were years ago to where you are now as a pivotal player on the Detroit Pistons?

I don’t think it was a particular person but many things and people have motivated me over time. My upbringing… the things I’ve seen and lived, competition, believing that I’m just as good as the best player. I believe that God has blessed me with an amazing talent level and I know my full potential can only be reached by outworking the next person and that fire alone motivates me to succeed…on top of being in love with mastering the game.

From Wade Saari
Will, what has been your favorite moment in a Detroit Piston uniform?

Making the playoffs my first year. The atmosphere of the playoffs and being a part of that would be my best moment.

From James Steven (Austrailia)
Are you ok with coming off the bench? Would you prefer to start?
What have you done this off-season to prepare for next year?

I would definitely prefer to start but I’ve been through so many things and in so many situations and played so many roles that I can adjust to any role and be successful.


This year, I’m training under Tim Grover at Attack Athletics..I’m making 300 to 500 3′s a day, doing physical therapy on the ankles, defensive drills, improving my conditioning, hip strengthening and breaking down film on myself and the strengths and weaknesses of league point guards.

From Fariduddin Muhammad (Chicago)
Being a native of Chicago, how has Chicago shaped you as a man and ball player?

The things I’ve been through in Chicago made me who I am today. It helped me to be able to appreciate the opportunity at hand and to NOT let it pass me by.When I go home and look into the kids’ faces and see the hope, despite the circumstances… is when my desires burn to be great….that was me. I have to be at my best for them. I have to show them that the dream can become a reality.

From Ollie (North Carolina)
Will, have you seen the film Black Dynamite? If not I highly recommend it. If so, have you thought of asking the folks at the Palace to play the DYNA-MITE jingle modified of course to BYNU-MITE whenever you have one of your incredible dunks?

LOL…no, I haven’t seen it. But I’m sure it’s probably funny.

From Chris LaPensee (Ann Arbor) and Me!
When are we going to see BYNUMITE in the Slam Dunk Contest?!?!

Hopefully next year. If the good Lord continues to bless me with great health I would love to be in it!

From Janae Richardson (Chicago)
I am a single parent raising boys in Chicago. I read about your upbringing and wanted to know what did his mother say to him to keep him away from the trouble? How was he encouraged to NOT join in with everyday street thugs? What can I tell my boys? Ages 13 and Tell him also how much Chicago loves and needs him to BE an example. The youth are watching,listening and hoping.

My moms focus everyday of working and supporting the family spoke for itself. I use that same focus and approach in life, with whatever I’m doing. I have two brothers who went in the gang and street direction early on and I learned from their situations what to do and what NOT to do. The streets have NO future. On top of that, I always played basketball and the neighborhood knew and respected that, for the most part. I would suggest you tell your children that it’s okay to be different and to say no. It’s okay to set goals and chase your dreams and that the only way to achieve it is through hard work and discipline. And to never be afraid of working hard at whatever they decide to do. I hear you Janae.

From Jacon St. Pierre
My question is how much of an adrenaline rush do you get when you fly over guys that are almost twice the size of you?

I get a calm rush looking at the fear on the facial expressions of the opposing teams, the coaches and the fans at away games and at home games it gives me a big rush and makes me want to do it again…and size doesn’t matter..lol

From Joanne Ross
McDyess was famous for his superstitions. Any unique pre-game rituals?

I pray…everything else is personal

From Danny Bohnlein

Is there any fear when you take the ball to the rim and elevates when a 7 footer goes up with you to block the shot?

No fear, none whatsoever!

Will loved all your questions and unfortunately his favorite was on that I had asked him, but he did pick a runner up of the Limited Edition BYNUMITE T-Shirt.

The Winner is…Janae Richardson (Chicago)

I would like to thank Will again for taking the time to answer our questions, but I’m even more excited that we get to see  him in a Pistons uniform for the next three seasons.

Not back to the question I asked Will…
I know you prefer Will The Thrill, but I have been contemplating a name change here at Need4Sheed.com, would it be so bad if I changed to BYNUMITE.com?

LOL..Natalie, I’m with that. I’d love that..It would be an unmeasurable honor!

I choose yours…Natalie…lol.. But if I have to choose one I choose Janae Richardson’s.

Now with that, I leave you with this.

I think it’s probably time to change the site’s name. I have a handful to choose from, but I may just put it to a vote. Stay TOONED.
