I come bearing news that makes me unbelievably sad: Andre Drummond doesn't actually bang on a drum during practice to rehab the stress fracture in his back. We were told it was Arnie Kander's latest idea to promote proper posture, but it was a hoax -- and it was so awesome we believed it hook, line and sinker. Didn't Manti Te'o teach us anything?
Trey Kirby uncovered the scandalous truth during All-Star media day. From The Basketball Jones:
TBJ: Are you getting any better at the drums?
Drummond: That was a joke. I don't really play the drums in practice.
TBJ: You don't?!?
Drummond: I was joking around in practice one day. I don't really do that.
Damn. Just ... damn.
