Andre Drummond, who finished the 2020-2021 season with the Los Angeles Lakers, was asked to name the best big man in the NBA, excluding himself. The 27-year-old center went for the newly crowned league MVP.

“I think Jokic is up there right now. Joel Embiid obviously another dominant big. Anthony Davis giving respect to him too. I think that’s pretty it right there,” Drummond said on ESPN’s The Jump.

The Serbian center averaged 26.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 8.3 assists on his way to his first MVP title this past season.
