Anthony Tolliver is far from a star, but he is a regular rotation player for the Detroit Pistons, getting around 18 minutes per game off the bench in 18 games this season.

And in the ultra-competitive NBA, when you’re not an All-Star, you’ve got to hustle where you can to stay relevant.

Props to Tolliver for lending a hand beyond his typical power forward duties during Saturday’s matchup with the 76ers and helping keep the court in Philadelphia safe and dry. Joel Embiid’s knees and Ben Simmons’ right foot surely appreciate it.

Maybe Sixers guard JJ Redick, who’s more interested in delegating than actually helping in the above video, will take a cue and actually do some of the dirty work to help himself and his oft-injured young superstar teammates stay safe next time.
