While LeBron James and his elite friend squad of fellow NBA superstars are taking to Twitter to assist in locking up their All-Star roster spots; Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons is getting some promotion from another reputable source ... the president.

Because if POTUS endorses someone you know it's real. The Pistons not only enlisted the help of President Obama to get voters' attention, but they cleverly set the hype video to the tune of Drake's hit song "Jumpman." Considering this year's NBA All-Star Game is in Toronto, this is highly sensible.

When you're averaging 18 points and 16 rebounds per game, an All-Star nod should be inevitable, but a catchy hook of "Drummond, Drummond, Drummond this boys up to something ... " can't hurt. We see what you did there, Detroit.
