Andre Drummond’s playing time is one of Pistons fans’ biggest grips with Lawrence Frank. For months, we’ve wanted Drummond to play more, bemoaning the fact that Frank kept the center benched so long. We’d beg for starts, but we would’ve taken just a few extra minutes here and there.
But we were helpless. Drummond’s minutes were Frank’s decision.
Well, what goes around comes around. David Mayo of MLive:
"You see, obviously, the difference Andre makes," Frank said. "It’s almost like I’ve got to beg Arnie (Kander, the Pistons’ strength and conditioning coach who is monitoring Drummond’s minutes). But at the end of the day, we’re obviously not going to sacrifice ‘Dre’s long term for the short term. Each and every game, he’ll be able to play more."
How does it feel, Lawrence?
