51) Andre Drummond

Big man Andre Drummond is known as one of the best rebounders of the last 20 years and he put up monster numbers during the 2010s as a member of the Detroit Pistons. Drummond spent all seven years of the decade with the Pistons, averaging 14.1 points, an outstanding 13.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 542 games. 

During that run, he led the league in rebounding three out of four years and four out of five overall, including in 2015-16. During that season, he grabbed 14.8 rebounds per game en route to an All-NBA third-team selection as well as making his first all-star team. 

He also snatched an outrageous 16 rebounds per game in 2017–18, resulting in his second all-star appearance. Being a double-double machine is impressive, to say the least and he has the highest rebounding average of any player to appear in at least 500 games during the 2010s, which is equally impressive.

While Drummond has ultimately become more of a role player than a star, some of his advanced stats during the era compare favorably to other top big men he played against, with a monster P.E.R. of 22.1 being not only among the highest of the decade but among the highest all-time.
