Jamaican-American André Drummond is the MVP of NBA Rising Stars Challenge

Andre Drummond, the Jamaican-American power forward/center for the NBA's Detroit Pistons, won MVP of the 2014 NBA All Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge last night.

Drummond had 30 points and a Rising Stars Challenge record 25 rebounds. Notorious for his poor free throw shooting, Drummond even managed to make 6 of his 8 free trow Friday night.
