Heading into his fifth NBA season, on the first year of a five-year max deal, Andre Drummond says he feels like he’s entering a new chapter of his career.

The 23-year-old big man told that there’s “no doubt” he’s going for a second consecutive rebounding title in 2016-17.

Dre also mentioned that he’s in the best shape of his career, having β€œshed about 20 pounds” over the offseason.


β€œI’m going to win the rebounding crown again. I’m going for it – no doubt about it. Try to get back to the All-Star game again and try to bring another guy with me, Reggie or (Caldwell-Pope) or Marcus (Morris) or Tobias. Be able to stay in games longer, knowing I can be fouled and shoot the shot.”

Drummond has a good shoot at repeating. He pulled down 20 or more rebounds nine times last season, and did it with relative ease.

Take this monster 29-rebound performance against the Pacers on November 3, 2015 for example:
