Andre Drummond having All-Star season for PistonsThe Detroit Pistons are 20-16 this season, which is the 7th best record in the East. Not with a guy like center Andre Drummond on the roster, there's reason to believe their future will be better than their past. Here's the Detroit News reporting on Drummond and the latest All-Star voting tallies:

Drummond has garnered the third-most votes (261,158) among Eastern Conference frontcourt players — trailing Cavaliers' Lebron James and Pacers' Paul George while holding a slight edge over Knicks' Carmelo Anthony — an indication that fans have taken notice of his offensive emergence and monster season to date.

Entering Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets, Drummond leads the league in offensive (5.5), defensive (10.2) and total rebounds (15.7) a game, as well as double-doubles (30).

He also is tied for ninth in field-goal percentage (52.3 percent), and ranks 14th in blocked shots (1.5), 15th in steals (1.78) and 16th in field goals made (7.6), giving the fourth-year center an irrefutable bid to earn his first All-Star selection and become the first Pistons representative since Allen Iverson in 2010.

“He's made a great case. To be the leading rebounder in the league by that much, scoring 18 a game and the team is winning more, I think that's key,” coach Stan Van Gundy said. “I think he has an extremely strong case.”
