The NBA season may be on hiatus, but Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond still delivered a very big assist by giving a Florida waitress $ 1,000.
“When I got the checkbook, I entered the tip and information to close the table and I couldn’t believe it,” Kassandra Diaz, a server at Che Restaurant in Delray Beach, wrote on Instagram in a post with Drummond’s Bill. “From a $ 160 check, the tip said $ 1,000. I trembled and tears of happiness after what he had left me. ‘
“I had no idea how to react, I didn’t want to draw attention, but at the same time I couldn’t describe how much I had / had. It is so great to see people show kindness in these uncertain times. This is a story I will never forget, thank you again @andredrummondd !! ‘

Florida waitress Kassandra Diaz received a signature from Andre Drummond worth exactly $ 1,000
Diaz had never actually heard of Drummond, the 26-year-old former University of Connecticut star recently traded from Detroit to Cleveland during the February NBA trade term.
“Unknowingly, I sat at the table with @andredrummondd,” she wrote. “I had no idea who he was and I had never seen him here.
Drummond, who would make $ 27 million before the outbreak this season, commented on her Instagram post and wrote, ‘Thanks for being great!’
The hospitality industry has been particularly hard hit by the outbreak of the corona virus. Servers have suffered significantly as they usually rely on tips and many states have not yet reopened the restaurants during the pandemic.

Diaz was so surprised by the tip amount that she tracked down her manager to make sure she should process the bill the way she is.
“She came over to me and I said go back to the table and look in case he was wrong,” manager Joes Diaz told West Palm Beach’s WPTV.
“I went to Mister Andre and I said,” Is this correct? And he goes, yes, that’s right. “And I just showed my appreciation. I was like, thank you very much, I appreciate it. He said no problem. ‘
Retired NFL star and Florida resident Chad Johnson recently left his own $ 1,000 tip at a restaurant in Broward County, Florida.
Drummond has a $ 28 million player option for the 2020-21 season, but could renegotiate with the Cavs, who acquired him for reserves Brandon Knight and John Henson, as well as a choice from the second round of 2023.
