It’s been three months since the Cleveland Cavaliers eliminated the Detroit Pistons in the playoffs. So for big man Andre Drummond, participating in the Drew League is likely a way to get back in shape during the summer. After all, it’s a short offseason for NBA players, with training camp starting as early as September.

But for some, the Drew League is a chance for amateur players to showcase their talents to the world in hopes of landing a better pro gig. Combine out of shape NBA players with hungry amateurs and you get what happened to Drummond on Sunday.

The seven-foot All-Star was dunked on twice in the same game, the first coming from former Nebraska guard Sek Henry, followed by Darnell Shumpert who most recently played in the D-League for the Los Angeles D-Fenders.

Drummond responded with nothing but class on Twitter.

After earning a league-high 13 consecutive double-doubles during the 2016 season, the Pistons probably have no concern about Drummond’s summer performance. They signed him to a five-year, $130 million extension just 10 days ago.

Shumpert describes himself on Twitter as a “former software engineer.” That’s probably the first and only time Drummond will be dunked on by someone who understands JavaScript.
