Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond silenced critics last season, proving to many that he's not bust material as many predicted he would be.

Drummond had a pretty solid season when on the floor, and looks to be getting a ton more playing time in this upcoming season.

The 20-year-old has boatloads of potential.

However, one major flaw in Drummond's game has to be his free throw shooting. The 6-foot-10, 270-pounder only shot 37-percent from the charity stripe this past season, and that definitely needs to get improved.

ESPN writer Ethan Sherwood Strauss gave out some plain advice in a recent article, saying that Drummond should take the Rick Barry approach and shoot his free throws underhand. Yes, the good ol' granny shot.

Sherwood Strauss wasn't really even dissing Drummond either. In fact, I was all in for such an idea, because it probably would in fact improve his percentage drastically. The only major issue with all NBA players doing such a free throw shooting form like that is because it looks funny.

Sherwood Strauss gave a lot of praise for Drummond in the article, but it looks the Pistons big man isn't taking any of it, as he blocked Ethan on Twitter.

Take a look:
Drummond took it further when he tweeted this:
Many are confused of why Drummond did this. There was no harm in Ethan's article, and he wasn't dissing him or anything.

I guess Drummond just got disrespect out of someone giving him advice of shooting such a weird free throw. I guess the diss towards his new teammate, Josh Smith, at the very end of the article could have contributed to it.

Nonetheless, Drummond is going to stick with that decision. He's on to other things now, such as throwing his iPhone into the pool:

Andre Drummond had 95 blocks last season. Ethan Sherwood Strauss is now lucky No. 96 into the Detroit Pistons center's growing chain.
