Andre Drummond makes All-Star team as injury replacement

Simmons

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond was named Tuesday, January 30, to replace injured Washington Wizards guard John Wall on the Team LeBron James' squad for next month's NBA All-Star Game in Los Angeles.

Brown, in his second season with Boston, is also having an impressive season. However, it would work against Walker that the Hornets are nine games below.500 at 20-29, while Dragic's Heat and Simmons' 76ers both have winning records and would qualify for the playoffs had the regular season ended Thursday. Drummond is averaging 14.7 points and a league-leading 15.1 rebounds to go with a career-high 3.8 assists this season. He was an All-Star in 2016 but was absent previous year.

It appears Drummond took exception to Brown's quizzical reaction.

Upon seeing those jabs, Drummond had kind words for Simmons but he fired a shot back at Brown saying, "no sure why Jaylen Brown is confused". He was selected by National Basketball Association head coaches as an All-Star reserve and drafted by captain LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Drummond is certainly right about Simmons, but he's a little off about Brown.

Simmons was snubbed for February 18 showpiece game despite major support from fans, with Washington's Wall one of the six Eastern Conference guards selected ahead of the 21-year-old Australian. But it's nice to see his personality coming out, even if he's using an emoji to do so.

Drummond is dealing with an illness and is listed as a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with the Cavaliers, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports. Mix that with his flex on DeMarcus Cousins a few weeks ago, and it's clear the young Celtics star is showing the rest of the National Basketball Association that he's arrived.
