Andre Drummond says he's 100% NOT dating famed escort Jenna Shea ... despite reports to the contrary ... telling TMZ Sports the rumors spiraled out of control after they posed for one innocent pic together. 

FYI -- Shea is a legend in the escort world ... having been connected to all sorts of NBA stars, NFL stars and rappers ... and after pics surfaced with Drummond this week, there were rumblings they were hookin' up. 

But the Detroit Pistons star tells TMZ Sports ... that's simply not the case -- "I'm not dating her. I was at a bowling alley and she took a picture with me and my friend." 

Drummond says he knew who Shea was when she asked for the pic -- but says, "I just figured she wanted to take a picture."

For her part, Shea tells TMZ Sports Drummond is telling the truth -- adding, "He was a nice guy."

12:55 PM PT -- We spoke to Andre who tells us, "I found [Jennette's comments] funny. There's a lot of false info in there, but I'll be the mature person about the situation and let it die out."

Andre also posted a Vine video moments ago that seems to be a response to the story in which he says, "Sometimes you gotta live and learn by the mistakes you make. You gotta move on and keep pushing."

"iCarly" star Jennette McCurdy is kissing and telling in a big way about her short-lived "relationship" with NBA star Andre Drummond ... and according to Jennette, the kissing part SUCKED.

McCurdy appeared on Pete Holmes' podcast "You Made It Weird" and spilled her guts about her fling with 20-year-old Drummond.

Jennette didn't pull punches -- admitting she only heard about the guy after he repeatedly chose her as his "Woman Crush Wednesday" on Twitter -- and eventually agreed to talk to Drummond because he "seemed like a big deal."

030214_jenette_andre_date_launchJennette says they had some early conversations that "gave [her] pause" but she decided to go out on some dates with him anyway.

McCurdy then describes their first kiss -- which went down after a laser tag date -- saying, "It just didn't go great ... no sparks. The mouths ... the shapes weren't right."

Still, they continued to hang out, McCurdy says ... and he was so into her, he bought her a necklace and got down on his knees during a dinner date and asked her to be his GF.

Even though she wasn't into it, she said yes ... only to break up with him on the phone a few days later.

You gotta listen to the whole podcast ... McCurdy seems to be laughing at Drummond the entire time -- painting him as this pathetic, immature guy who doesn't have a clue about how to court a woman.

But the relationship did start as a public event on social media ... so, fair for Jennette to go public with all the gory breakup details too?

Discuss.

San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick may not have a Super Bowl ring, but he still managed to get one perk ... courtside seats at the Clippers game on Sunday.

The 25-year-old brought along a few of his burly pals to watch the Clippers destroy the Detroit Pistons, 129 -97.

It's also fun watching other people lose.
