Welcome to the very first POTD of Andre Drummond’s career. It figures to be the first of many, as the 19-year-old man-beast appears to be developing into a substantial force in the painted rectangle. How many, you wonder? Well, based on the 900 minutes it took him to achieve this dunk over Samuel Dalembert, a lot. Starting next season, if young Drummond is to posterize somebody once every 900 minutes whilst playing 36 minutes per game in 75 games per season until he’s 30 years old, he’ll end up with approximately 31 POTDs. Indeed, this is a rather arbitrary calculation that fails to account for many variables… but it does demonstrate the extensive dominance that could be in store for Drummond. Skip to 1:15…
Honorable mention to Klay Thompson for sort of dunking on Tyler Zeller.
