NBA star Andre Drummond is being hailed a hero after rescuing his 2-year-old son from a potential drowning.

Drummond, who just signed with the Philadelphia 76ers, was enjoying an afternoon by the pool, when suddenly, little Deon fell into the water.

Without hesitation, Drummond leaped into the water with all of his clothes on.
