The veteran center cited his “best-ever” rebounding prowess among other accolades in his case for the Hall of Fame.
Andre Drummond was a nice addition to the Chicago Bulls bench last year. He averaged 6.0 points and 6.6 rebounds despite seeing a career-low 12.7 minutes per game. While teams are a month out from the start of training camp, Drummond made an appearance on “The Comfortable Podcast,” during which he claimed that he is a potential Hall of Famer.
Across parts of eight seasons with the Detroit Pistons to begin his career, Drummond was one of the best rebounders in the league. In his last three years with Detroit, he pulled down over 15 boards per game. As Drummond referenced in the interview, he’s No. 1 all-time in rebounding percentage.
While the veteran center sits atop that category, many NBA fans believe he lacks in other areas. Drummond’s list of accolades includes four seasons as the top rebounder, two All-Star nods, one All-NBA selection, and All-Rookie honors. The 30-year-old is entitled to his opinion that he’s had a Hall of Fame-caliber career, but many fans won’t agree with him.
Looking at the bigger picture, a good benchmark could be former Bull Joakim Noah. Most Bulls fans believe Noah’s jersey should be retired and he should at least be mentioned in the Basketball Hall of Fame debate.
