Pistons news: Andre Drummond gets NBA 2K18 rating on his birthday
Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond celebrated his 24th birthday with a nice little gift from 2K Sports, as Ronnie 2K blessed the big man with a rating of 85 in NBA 2K18 a few hours prior to his special day.

The Motor City big man had a down year after a career-year in 2015-16 but dipped last season after shying away from contact at the rim and failing to block shots as he once did during the 2014-15 season, when he neared two-a-game.
Yet the big man has had a deviated septum procedure, which will allow him to breathe easier, coupled with an extensive offseason regimen to help him lose weight and move around better from end to end.
Drummond celebrated his birthday at the NBPA camp, busting a few moves in front of the campers, birthday cake and all.

Even the NBA gave him a reminder of what’s perhaps the most impressive shot of his young career — making that the icing on the cake.
