In December 2014, sock brand Stance teamed up with NBA players Andre Drummond Chandler Parsons to create sock designs for their range of Fusion basketball socks. The collaboration is dubbed “the Battle of the Birds” as Drummond incorporated penguins into his design and Parsons’ has flamingos.
Andre Drummond (born August 10, 1993) is a center for the Detroit Pistons. He grew up in New York and played college basketball at the University of Connecticut. “To symbolize Drummond’s lack of fear, unassuming approach, and cold weather upbringing, his signature sock is adorned with penguins,” a press release states.
