Andre Drummond rips fan who says Pistons beat ‘trash team’
The Detroit Pistons kept their playoff hopes alive by overcoming a 19-point halftime deficit on Tuesday night, but one NBA fan was not impressed with the feat. Andre Drummond has no interest in hearing that fan’s opinion.
Following Detroit’s 100-93 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Drummond fired back at a Twitter follower who said the Pistons beat a “trash team” that was missing a bunch of players. The two-time All-Star blasted the fan.
No team is trash in the NBA sir,you couldn’t walk a day in one of our shoes from the best teams to the teams rebuilding.We work our ass off every single night. may not be to your liking because you don’t know what it’s like being out there.But don’t discredit my team or any team

The Pistons improved their record to 40-41 on the season with the victory, and they now control their own destiny for reaching the postseason. If they beat the New York Knicks on Wednesday night, they’re in. They could also make the playoffs if they lose and the Orlando Magic beat the Charlotte Hornets.
This has been a frustrating season for Detroit, and their postseason outlook is not that bright given the health of Blake Griffin. However, they have a chance for a fresh start if they can take care of business on Wednesday. Drummond shouldn’t care if fans think the opponents the Pistons beat along the way are “trash” or not, just as long as they get to keep playing.
