The Detroit Pistons really want big man Andre Drummond to start in the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, and they continue to come up with clever ways to promote his candidacy.
Last week the Pistons made a video of President Obama rapping over the Drake and Future track “Jumpman” and now they’re back at it. This time, in clever bit of word play, the team put the President’s words over the Dr. Dre and Eminem song: “Forgot About Dre.”
On last check Carmelo Anthony had surged past Drummond in the voting, but as of Friday afternoon it was still a toss-up between the two as to who would be joining LeBron James and Paul George as the Eastern Conference forwards when the voting ends on Monday night, as only around 7,000 votes separated the two.
While Melo is certainly having his typical excellent season, you could make a strong case for Drummond as well, as he is the NBA’s leading rebounder at 15.3 boards per-game to go along with an average of 17.8 points.
To make the case even stronger for Drummond, noted Detroit resident Slim Shady himself has thrown his support behind the former UConn center.
This close to the voting deadline, that very well might be the K.O. punch.
