Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond has been maligned of late for his lackluster play despite his hefty price tag of $22 million dollars a season.
It’s also certainly no secret that many Pistons fans would like to see the team move on from the once promising big man. The team also fielded trade offers from other teams for him during last season, though no moves were made.
Earlier this week, the NBA world was rocked when the news broke that Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving no longer wants to play alongside LeBron James and requested a trade out of Cleveland. Naturally, one Pistons fan suggested the Pistons trade for Irving and send Drummond packing down to Ohio.
That didn’t sit well with Drummond, and he took the time to personally respond to the fan with a snide remark:
😅and this is why you are typing from a cellphone and not a general manger 😫🤷🏽♂️

But to his credit, the fan didn’t take Drummond’s response lying down, firing back what most fans are likely thinking:
If you spent more time practicing your free throws instead of responding to fans on twitter this convo might no have been sparked!
