NBA Role: voracious rebounder • Top DOG

It was just a matter of time til Dre Drummond made the leap into Top DOG territory selected for his 1st All-Star game in 2016; neck & neck w/ DeAndre Jordan (LAC) for ‘League’s Best Rebounder’ – face guard him, it’s your only hope to keep Drummond off the glass (even that won’t work); at some point, Dre could be widely regarded as one of the best rebounders in modern history – on pace to put up legendary numbers; improved footwork down low (patient, doesn’t waste movements/step in the wrong direction as much) – Drummond is a go-to hook/bank shot away from dominating; dunks with ferocity after backing opponents in deep and if he can’t overpower ya, his natural athleticism & quickness take over; needs more of an Alpha mindset, consistently impose himself physically; might as well shoot free throws blindfolded – needs a desperate touch up of his shooting form*; current All-Star & face of the Motor City – the ‘master’ element of Stan Van’s diabolical plan

*includes his J, which Andre really only has to extend out to 15 feet (has shown improvement)
