Lakers center Andre Drummond’s ‘locked in’ remark can be Stephen Curry-dangerous

This is certainly what Lakers fans want to see from the big man, whom the team acquired at the buyout market to bolster their frontcourt that already features Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol.
While his start with the Lakers has been far from ideal, with some even questioning whether the Purple and Gold are better off starting Gasol and playing him less, Drummond has since proven that he is beneficial for LA’s success.
In the Lakers’ last five wins to close the regular season, he averaged 13.2 points, 13.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.
However, while it is good to see Andre Drummond staying ready, he should be more careful to what he posts on social media. After all, Stephen Curry sees them–he checks everything anyway.
To recall, Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant posted a “locked in” story on Instagram before their crucial seeding battle with Curry and the Warriors in the final game of the regular season. The result? Curry dropping 46 points to help the Dubs secure the advantageous eighth seed in the West.
After the game, Curry even subtly trolled Morant and noted that he was “locked in” during the contest.
"I was locked in" 😉

The Lakers certainly don’t want to see Steph exploding for 40-plus points on LeBron James and Co. If he does, the LA faithful knows where to pin the blame (Sorry, Drummond!).
