What is becoming very apparent for the Pistons in this young NBA season is the dominating play of center Andre Drummond. His statistics for the first six games are outstanding. He joins an exclusive group with those statistics. That group being Wilt Chamberlain and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in averaging 20 points and 20 rebounds per game in the first six games of a season. Not to say he is the player those two greats were, but the play on the court speaks for itself. Averaging a double-double (20 and 20) in points and rebounds is not something to take lightly. The #Pistons are a pleasant surprise so far in this season at 5-1, which is their best start since the 2007-2008 season. I will continue to observe this team through the first month and see where things then. So far, so good!
