Andre Drummond accomplishes rare rebounding feat not done by anyone in 17 years
Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons is second in the league in rebounding behind the Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan, but he did something in March that Jordan has yet to accomplish.
In fact, no player besides Drummond in the past 17 years has done what he did, in terms of amassing a high number of both offensive and defensive rebounds in a single month.
Often times feats like these can seem arbitrary, especially when setting nice round numbers like 100 as a threshold to surpass. But Drummond’s ability to haul down so many rebounds on the offensive floor is impressive, and something which deserves to be noticed.
Drummond leads the league in total number of offensive rebounds, and has grabbed 34 more than Jordan has, while playing in one fewer game and averaging 4.2 fewer minutes per contest on the season.
