Tuesday, he was snubbed for All-Star spot.
Commissioner Adam Silver chooses injury replacements from the same conference as the injured All Star. It went down as a loss for the team but Drummond can't take the blame for that as he went off for 30 points, 24 rebounds, six blocks, four assists and three steals.
Simmons apparently found the snub amusing.
Drummond will play for Team LeBron, along the likes of LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis, and Kevin Durant. He's averaging 14.1 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 31.5 minutes per game.
The All-Star Game will take place on February 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Sixers center Joel Embiid was voted in as a starter.
Consider the rarity of Simmons' season: Only one rookie in National Basketball Association history has averaged at least 16 points, 7.5 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game.
Newly acquired Pistons forward Blake Griffin tweeted out his congratulations for Drummond.
Prior to going without an All-Star last season, the Heat had a representative at the event every year since 2005.
