This past Saturday Andre Drummond dropped 8 points and 7 rebounds in just 15 minutes of play. He had a pretty normal left putback dunk and also place Bismack Biyombo on a poster with a mostly non-contact tomahawk jam: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWAQTS5P89E

He also had a nice lob against Miami: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p97JEyETOPs

The scary thing is that he is still not having plays run for him yet.

How the hell did 8 teams pass on a 6,11 center who looks this ridiculously strong and quick

It really does look like the sky is the limit for this kid. He obviously has some learning and adjusting to do, but he has done well in the preseason so far. He looks like he can be a beast on the defensive end of the court. He needs to polish up his offensive game, but he'll get his fair share of lob dunks. Hopefully he can work his way into the starting lineup. It'll probably take a while for it to happen but if he plays well I could see it happening by mid-season.

Beyond me, if you go back to the draft threads I was saying he should go anywhere from second from what I had seen.

for his height+weight he might be the fastest baller i've ever seen. The dude can move. 7 footers who move like that stay in the NBA for a long time

It may actually help his game out a bit since he slid down in the draft. He doesn't have the pressure of being a top pick and it hopefully gave him a bit of a chip on his shoulder to prove that he should have been drafted higher. If he would have went 2 or 3 he would have had the pressure to start and produce right away. In Detroit he doesn't have that. He has time to get better and ease his way into things.

Hah, I was about to give you the benefit of the doubt too and assume maybe you just missed the Robinson era or something. It's all good though.

Simply for the sake of information, in 17.5 minutes per game this preseason, Andre Drummond is averaging 9.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.5 blocks. None too shabby. Of course, the flip side is he's averaging 2.8 fouls in those 17 minutes as well.
