Lakers center Andre Drummond posts cryptic tweet ahead of Game 6 vs Suns
The Los Angeles Lakers are facing a do-or-die Game 6 against the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night. The series has been frustrating at times for Los Angeles, primarily due to the injury to Anthony Davis. With the Lakers on the brink of elimination, center Andre Drummond posted a cryptic tweet on Wednesday afternoon and, well, it could be implying a couple of things for Game 6.

Could this be a sign of some changes Frank Vogel is planning on making in Game 6? Or perhaps Drummond isn’t even referring to basketball.
Nonetheless, the timing of the tweet is a bit curious. Drummond joined the Lakers after being bought out from the Cleveland Cavaliers midseason and had hopes of winning an NBA Championship next to LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
Drummond has been a staple in the starting lineup, although Lakers fans have been heated at Frank Vogel’s insistence to keep him in the lineup ahead of Marc Gasol. Despite the never-ending burns from the Lakers community, Drummond has been rather solid, posting 11.9 points with 10.2 rebounds in his time with the Lakers.
However, the Lakers might be desperate for lineup changes as they are just one loss away from a first-round exit, something LeBron James has never had in his NBA career. Could Gasol be inserted into the starting lineup? Is Drummond possibly doubting his decision to join the Lakers instead of the Brooklyn Nets? Who knows.
Either way, Game 6 will be interesting to watch on Thursday night.
