Andre Drummond giving up his uniform number for Chauncey Billups – Ultimate Respect

Back in 2009, LeBron James gave up his number 23 and said other NBA players should do the same out of respect for Michael Jordan. ┬áMany of us said “respect” to the Cavs superstar while most people in Cleveland still sour about The Shot said “whatever” and the 12 other players in the league wearing #23 said “nope. I’ll keep my number.”

I can’t blame the guys for wanting to keep their lucky numbers in that situation but I love to see young guys like Drummond make a gesture like he did for vets especially vets that helped a franchise win a championship the way “Mr Big Shot” did.

At Billups press conference he said Drummond should “have another number anyway because he’s going to be a great player and one day have his number retired.” ┬áRespect!
