Andre Drummond Victim Of Equipment Staff Spelling Error (Photo)

Whoever was responsible for misspelling Andre Drummond’s name can’t blame this one on auto-correct. The Detroit Pistons center started Monday’s game against the Chicago Bulls with a jersey that read “D-R-U-M-M-U-N-D” on the back.

Carmelo Anthony desperately needs a new milliner, but not nearly as desperately as he needs a coach who can put together a real offense. Monday’s 91-85 loss to the Atlanta Hawks was a microcosm of the New York Knicks’ problems: The more Anthony gets his, the less likely it seems the Knicks are to win. It’s even led to Knicks president Phil Jackson getting into a little tiff...
