Detroit Public Square: Readers' Choice
Published: April 9, 2014
Some of this year’s Best-Of honors are repeats, and given the sorry state of the Detroit Pistons these days, we understand why Drummond was picked by our readers again, even though being the top pick in this bunch isn’t exactly the same as being singled out as the best of the Bad Boys. But at 6 feet, 10 inches, and 270 pounds, the center from UConn is a big man who can move, and there aren’t a lot of those in the world. He’s been hampered by back injuries in this, his second year, but among those who know the game, he’s seen as a young player with enormous potential. The best reason to hope the Pistons might have a brighter future? Maybe so.
