Andre Drummond makes All-Star team as injury replacement

Adam Silver selected Andre Drummond as the injury replacement for John Wall, who's going to miss the All-Star Game while recovering from knee surgery. There was some hope in Boston that Jaylen Brown would find his way onto the roster, and the second-year guard even received an endorsement from Warriors All-Star Draymond Green. "Not to mention that he has elevated his play this year to expand beyond the post and become an effective playmaker for the team". But at least it breaks up the middle of the season as we await the All-Star break and wade through rumors ahead of next week's trade deadline.

Before the start of the game between the Cavs and the Pistons Tuesday, NBA TV's Dennis Scott was interviewing the University of CT product when James came flying in from nowhere to shout "Team LeBron!" at the mic and left just as speedily. He's averaging 14.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.1 steals, shooting 46 percent from the field, 38 percent from three and 59 percent from the line.

Drummond himself threw some shade at Brown on Instagram while simultaneously praising Simmons. He was selected by National Basketball Association head coaches as an All-Star reserve and drafted to Team LeBron by captain LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Drummond is certainly right about Simmons, but he's a little off about Brown.

As of now, guard Wayne Ellington is the only member of the Heat headed to Los Angeles for All-Star weekend. Drummond seems to be a Simmons fan, though, as he added, "Got a lot of respect for Ben, his time is coming sooner than he knows". He last week selected Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George to replace sidelined New Orleans Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins.
