    A lot of selfies in these pics, so she must have been okay with them. Can't imagine she sent them all to Dre foam over since their relationship didn
    t appear to get that far after that big mouth messy kiss....

    She is 21 now....I think Jeanette's publicist leaked these with her approval so she can possibly make the transition from Disney-Nik to Miley Cyrus territory.

    I am still wondering why I went through all of 71 of those boring pics.:lame:

    To paraphrase Antoine Walker, because there weren't 72 of them.

    Dre will need to find a nice woman that he can practice shooting free throws and kissing over the summer. I wonder if Swin Cash is available? :dance:

    Then again Maya Moore is closer to his age and is a career 85% FT shooter compared to Swin's 76%,

    Swin Cash is an old lady from Dre's POV. Maybe Kristi Toliver?

    Kristi Toliver is 27 and Maya Moore is 24 which is closer to the young Dre....but Kristi career FT % is 87%, compared to Maya's 85%.

    We need to hook him up with those kissable lips of 23 year old Skylar Diggins. She shoots 83% from the line and they would be the new NBA/WNBA it couple...

    5'9'; that's ok, that other girl looked ridiculous next to him. On the other hand, if she were taller, their kids would be like 8'3', like Yao's are gonna be. Perfect ballers if the legs hold up.

    I suspect that Dre will have no problem getting dates with his physical presence, good looks, and bank account. While there is potential for drama, nothing wrong with playing the field, as most ballers do even when married.

    Andre still quietly having a massive season. With 3 games to go:

    Double-Doubles
    K.Love - 61
    A.Drummond - 54
    D.Cousins - 50

    Games with 7+ OR
    A.Drummond - 25
    D.Jordan - 10
    R.Lopez - 10

    Going more historical, he is currently 14th all-time for OR in a season (414) and an outside chance to catch Moses Malone's 437 for 10th. (Moses has 5 other entries in the top 10!). Note: OR weren't a stat until 1973-74.

    Youngest player with 400 OR in a season.
    2nd youngest player with 1,000 TR in a season (D.Howard)
    3rd player in history with 1,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 60% FG in a season. Other two - Howard and Wilt.

    To be fair, the Pistons miss a LOT of shots.

    A little more...

    Nobody has had more than 400 offensive rebounds this century. The next closest player in the 2000's was Elton Brand, who had 396 in 01/02. After that, you're dropping all the way to 344 with Dampier.

    His offensive rebounding% (17.1) is currently 20th all time and the highest for any active player.

    Yes, Andre Drummond is fairly good at basketball.

    The good thing is he boards on both sides of the floor equally well. MAX was pretty decent on the offensive glass but couldn't box out to save his life.

    Boxing out isn't Drummond's forte either.

    I feel like he slipped a little bit rebounding the ball defensively this year. He got everything last year it seemed.

    Last year, Drummond got 8.3 defensive rebounds per 36 minutes. This year, he gets 8.6.

    Offensive board have gone from 4.9 to 5.9 per 36 minutes.

    His offensive rebounding is ridiculous actually. This year as a 2nd-season 20-year old, he is already 14th on the NBA single season record list with 414 offensive boards. He would need 23 more in the last 4 games to tie Moses Malone for 10th best season at 437.

    The eye test doesn't seem to match his per 36 defensive #'s. I just felt like nothing got by him or over his head last year.

    Suns color man Eddie Johnson was pointing out how Drummond got more rebounds outside his zone or immediate reach than anyone he had seen this year.

    When healthy, he will easily pull down over 1,000 rebounds a year. If he has a long, healthy career, he may end up being considered one of the best rebounders of ALL TIME. He's only a kid right now, so we'll have to wait and watch how his career progresses. I'm glad he's on our team, though.

    Timely topic for today.

    Drummond has 19 rebounds in tonight's game....and the 2nd quarter just ended.

    To be clear my criticism of his defensive rebounding was over the course of the year and not the last 5-6 games when he's been great.

    He almost killed a couple of guys going for rebounds tonight.
