Do you like rebounds, blocks and steals? How about a high field-goal percentage? How about star potential? Then do I have a waiver wire pickup for you. Andre Drummond is just 37-percent owned in Yahoo leagues. That is extremely low for what the rookie out of UConn is doing on the court. In the Pistons' 105-90 win Tuesday over the Orlando Magic, Drummond scored 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting. He also grabbed 11 rebounds to go with two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes. He's still a crappy free-throw shooter (1-4 Tuesday), but the peripherals are too good to ignore. In his last 10 games, Drummond is averaging 10.1 points (72.6 FG%), 8.8 rebounds, .4 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.9 blocks in just 22.8 minutes. Pick him up now, stash him if need be, and prepare for the Pistons to turn him loose later this season.

Fan has Charlie Villanueva tattoo on arm

It isn’t often that a bench player that is eighth in scoring on his team, and horribly overpaid, ends up as a tattoo. Actually, it isn’t all too often that any basketball player ends up in permanent skin ink on person. But Charlie Villanueva of the Detroit Pistons ended up being forever inked on some Pistons fans arm. I’m not quite sure why anyone would ever want to do this...

Maxiell powers Pistons past Magic

AUBURN HILS, Mich. -- For years, Glen Davis has been a thorn in the side of the Detroit Pistons. Tuesday, Jason Maxiell played Big Baby right off the floor. Davis missed 11 of his 15 first-half shots, picked up a technical early in the third quarter and was benched for most of the second half as the Pistons beat the Orlando Magic 105-90.

Pistons rout Celtics after London trip

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Rookie Andre Drummond had 16 points and seven rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons returned from Europe with a 103-88 victory over the Boston Celtics on Sunday night. The Pistons lost to the New York Knicks in London on Thursday, but they didn't look particularly weary in their first game back. Detroit blew an 18-point second-quarter lead before pulling...

What's with the Pistons bizarre continued domination of the Celtics?

Greg Monroe (middle) loves playing the Celtics. It's been more than a year since the Celtics beat the Pistons.  On December 30th, 2011 Boston knocked off Detroit 96-85 in their first game at the Garden last season.  Since that day the Pistons are 36-63 against all other teams in the NBA combined, but 4-0 vs. Boston.  In fact, in those four games the Celtics have never even...

Pistons bully Magic in blowout

The signs were there that the game stood on the edge for either team with Detroit heading to the locker room up two points at halftime. The Pistons were not shooting the ball well and were giving up 3-pointers left and right to a strong-shooting Magic team. The Magic were giving up offensive rebounds and getting beat in transition after committing turnovers. Not to mention the...

Whatcha talkin’ about, Andre?

If Gary Coleman were alive today I think he would be very proud of this Drummond. Andre Drummond that is! Wait, is Gary Coleman alive? I don’t think so. Ok, I actually just checked it, he died in 2010. Sad but he’ll always be remembered! I actually had a crush on Kimberly but I think she died too. Dayum. I think Willis is alive though. Mr. Drummond just died last week. Now I’m...

Orlando Magic Continue Downward Spiral

The Orlando Magic (14-27) continued their downward spiral last night against the Detroit Pistons (16-25). The Magic were absolutely manhandled in the paint by Greg Monroe, Jason Maxiel, and rookie Andre Drummond. The Piston big men led the way by out-rebounding the Magic 54-41.
