Andre Drummond was named an NBA All-Star for the first time in his career. He was voted in as a reserve by the coaches after narrowly missing out on a starting spot in the fan vote. Drummond is honored, his teammates are happy, and the Pistons' social media game is on point. Let's see some tweets:

Drummond took the humble approach, which is commendable. However,I think the Pistons' Twitter account summed up the mood of fans pretty well:
His teammates also go in on the congrats:

And there was even a famous friend or two .... though apparently Steven Yuen's Walking Dead and Comedy Bang Bang star power couldn't quite get him into the starting lineup. But we won't hold that against him.
