News 8’s John Pierson caught up with the former UConn stud as his Pistons were in Boston to take on the Celtics.

Drummond is one of the up-and-coming stars in the NBA, having put up 31 points, 19 rebounds and 6 steals in a game earlier this month, something no one has done since Hakeem Olajuwon back in 1990.

We’ll have more on Drummond on SportzEdge Friday Night at 11:15 p.m. on News 8 on December 27.
