This past season, Andre Drummond became the first player in 21 years to average at least 16 rebounds per game.

While guesting on Desus & Mero, Drummond declared himself the best rebounder of all time (starting at 9:25):

People say Dennis Rodman was the greatest rebounder of all time—

Drummond: “I don’t think so. I think I am.”

You mumbled that. Say it again.

Drummond: “I said I think I am.”

It always seems like you’re in the right position…

Drummond: “I do my work early, that’s why. I know my teammates well enough to know when they’re going to shoot the basketball. So as soon as I see them getting ready to go up…

“Playing with Reggie Jackson, it’s going up eight out of 10 times. That’s my brother, I love him to death. I’ve grown to know how he plays, so that’s why I know when he’s going to shoot the ball.

“Playing with Blake now, I know he attacks the basket. So that makes my job a little bit more easy. When you miss a layup, I’m right there to tip it in.

“I think it’s doing your work early. I get my position early. I get around in front and just move ‘em back.”
