Corey Maggette stood in front of the media, tugged his shirt sleeve and flexed his biceps.

"Oh, man," Maggette said. "You don't see these muscles."

That's what 10 years — and rookie mentoring from Ben Wallace — in the NBA has produced.

And now, Maggette is the veteran ready to mentor the rookie.

In this case, Pistons rookie Andre Drummond.

And considering the two have a lot on common — both played one year in college before leaving for the NBA; Maggette at Duke and Drummond at Connecticut — the mentor-mentee connection is perfect.
