LeBron James crashes Andre Drummond interview to shout 'Team LeBron'

  • John Wall to miss 6 weeks and All-Star Game with knee surgery, per report

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond has been added to the NBA All-Star Game, replacing injured Washington guard John Wall.

Both things have come under some amount of criticism. He was selected by National Basketball Association head coaches as an All-Star reserve and drafted to Team LeBron by captain LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers. And though they don't really play defense in the All-Star game, Brown should get some brownie points for usually finding himself defending the opposing team's best options on a nightly basis. Simmons is averaging 16.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 7.3 assists per game in what is his first season of action.

Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond (0) puts up his arms before the game against the Washington Wizards at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

Whatever may occur, we aren't likely to be left in suspense for long - DeMarcus Cousins was ruled out of the match through injury earlier this month and his replacement, Paul George, was announced within 24 hours.

Wall was initially named as a reserve for Team LeBron but will be out six to eight weeks due to a knee injury. But at least it breaks up the middle of the season as we await the All-Star break and wade through rumors ahead of next week's trade deadline.

Brown and Drummond will have a chance to discuss their All-Star on February 23 when the Celtics visit Detroit - the first game out of the All-Star break. The last time a team seeded No. 4 or higher in either conference did not have an All-Star was the 2002-03 Portland Trail Blazers, with Rasheed Wallace, averaging 18.1 points at the time, bypassed in those selections.

Brown, in his second season with Boston, is also having an impressive season.
