OT: Orlando Magic fire Stan Van Gundy, GM Otis Smith

19

They should have done the latter a long time ago, but personally I'm chapped that the team sided with the superstar that has a foot and a half out of the door anyway.

Apparently Greg was trying to get to the bottom of the Jazz' dominance over Detroit in the last decade.

Bulls at Pistons: where totally forgetting that Rip Hamilton is on this team happens

There's been a lot said of this Bulls team this season, and very little of it has been about ex-Piston Richard Hamilton. Hamilton has only contributed a handful of games in 2011-12, grouped...

Kendall Marshall: Draft Express' Prospect of the Week

24

"Marshall's 10.7 assists per 40 minutes game adjusted this season rank the highest of any player in the history of our database (which goes back to 2001/2002). He's also #1 all-time in Pure Point Ratio by a large margin, while his 3.51 Assist-Turnover Ratio ranks 3rd all-time.. When looking at Marshall's game from an NBA perspective, his passing ability is clearly his greatest selling point, and it's hard to overstate how good of a passer he is and how great a feel he has for managing a game. In terms of point guard style, Marshall is a prototypical pass-first point guard taken to the extreme, as evidenced by his just 6.2 field-goal attempts per game in 32.9 minutes. He possesses an uncanny, second nature feel for the game, always instinctively playing with his head up and quickly moving the ball to the highest percentage scoring opportunity. Managing the game clearly comes very easy for him both in the half court and transition, as he looks as natural as any player in the country finding teammates for easy baskets." Want.

Bobcats at Pistons: Where Amazing Happens

I'm a bit disappointed. I would have assumed that if any of this year's match-ups were to be voted in to TNT fan night, it'd be Bobcats vs. Pistons. Game Tips Off at 7:30 P.M. EST Charlotte...

Mavericks sign Kelenna Azubuike

2

The Mavs have signed Kelenna Azubuike for the remainder of the season, with the intent of finishing his return from injury in the D League. Azubuike has long been a hopeful Pistons target of mine, given his cheap price and stunning stroke. It's a boon for the Mavericks, as they've added a career 41% three-point shooter who rebounds well on the wing and rarely turns the ball over. You paying attention Joe Dumars?

Kenneth Faried: highest PER of any rookie over the last 16 years

+

Hey Stiffs! Mike Payne from DetroitBadBoys here. We've been enjoying Kenneth Faried's development from afar, and are pumped to see him in person tonight. Collectively, the community at DBB wanted Faried with Detroit's 8th pick last year, but we wound up with another combo guard instead... Anyway, thought you guys would dig the chart (even though Hollinger's PER is flawed, it's fun to look at in this case!)

NBA.com Team of the Week: the Detroit Pistons

8

"Detroit (3-0): Joe Dumars pleased, as he should be, with the Brandon Knight-Greg Monroe combo: Pistons are 10-7 over the last six weeks after a 3-16 January, with wins over the Lakers and Hawks this past week." -- David Aldridge Take it with a grain of salt, however, Aldridge did call Chris Kaman a "a top-10 center" in the same article. That's hilarious.
