In basketball, it happens to big men frequently — being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

That’s being under the rim, contesting a shot and ending up on the business end of a vicious dunk.

Pistons center Andre Drummond isn’t exempt.

Drummond, playing in the Drew League — a popular pro-am, pick-up-style tournament in Los Angeles — was dunked on twice during a game over the weekend.

Drummond, who this month signed a five-year max contract worth more than $125 million, took the embarrassing display in stride, posting on Twitter: “Thanks for the love! Hope everyone is ready for the dunk they are going to post. I got caught twice.”

The first was by Sek Henry and the second by Darnell Shumpert, who identifies himself on Twitter as a Former software engineer and player for the D-League’s Los Angeles D-Fenders.
