Andre Drummond, the 9th overall pick by the Detroit Pistons has had some monster dunks this preseason. In a game against the Charlotte Bobcats Drummond was once again dunking on opponents. Durmmond received a pass in the paint, pivoted and dunked over Biyombo. Hopefully he can keep this up in the regular season.

Woodson shared his story about his life. Most of the show was boring, but my man Stephen Coston...

Tracy McGrady has only been in China for about a day now and he’s already made a huge splash. There was the video of him being greeted by thousands of fans. Now there is video from his first practice with Qingdao DoubleStar. The video is pretty much what you can expect Tracy to do a lot this year. Use his size for easy layups and dunks.
