Pistons center Andre Drummond is making one last push for All-Star votes. Or, maybe it’s a slide.
Drummond, according to the most recent voting results released Thursday, is sitting in fourth among frontcourt players for the Eastern Conference. The top three earn starting spots in the Feb. 14 showcase in Toronto, and voting ends Monday.
The Pistons’ 22-year-old star took to social media to strike a bargain with voters. And it sounds cold.
Drummond has 361,307 votes, about 7,000 fewer than Carmelo Anthony of the Knicks. LeBron James (830,345) and the Indiana Pacers’ Paul George (569,947) lead the Eastern Conference frontcourt players.
Drummond is averaging 17.8 points, 15.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 40 games this season.
