While speaking at a youth event, Chicago Bulls center Andre Drummond said he hopes to play until he's well into his 30's. And when all is said and done, Drummond said he hopes to be remembered as the best rebounder in NBA history.
“I think I’m already there,” Drummond said. “I’m on my way. By the time I retire, I’ll go down as the best rebounder ever — if not already.”
Drummond's 13.3 rebounds per game average stands as 11th all time. The 6-foot-10 center has led the NBA in rebounding four times during his 10-year career. While the per-game numbers may not place Drummond in the top-10, that's mostly a result of the way the game has changed. Drummond's overall rebound percentage ranks at 24.66%. That's first all-time, ahead of Dennis Rodman's 23.44% rebound rate.
