2014 DBB Tourney Pick 'Em

Join DBB's annual Yahoo! March Madness pick 'em.

Box Score Geeks says 46 Wins is Realistic

+

The analytic guys over at Box Score Geeks (Formerly TheNBAGeek) picked the Pistons to finish 4th in the East, 10th in the NBA, and have 46 wins as a "realistic" option, with an optimistic 53.8! It's worth the read, especially if you want some crazy next level statistics like decimal positions (i.e. Rodney Stuckey's position is '1.6')

How A Pistons Fan Can Hate A Piston

I've been a Piston fan all my life, and most of it I've hated at least one Piston. From the first memories I have of hating Terry mills some where in the early task era to hating his taller,...

Could Chris Paul come to Detroit?

FASCINATING. Listen to Kahn describe his tenure in Minnesota in this 5 part interview

+

I'm only part way through it, but listening to him talk about the draft picks, and the way scouting is done is just mind boggling. With all these stats, it seems like the eyeball test is what people put behind these million dollar decisions.

MLive: Detroit Pistons' Rodney Stuckey should start, Will Bynum says, and Lawrence Frank doesn't 'dispute it'

Will Bynum had two good games and decides to just run off at the mouth. How about you solve the fiscal cliff Will? Why don't you opine about that! I don't know why I am upset, he is mostly...

Stuckey Working on His Mental Game

+

Part of that is maturity, maybe some is attributable to some sessions with a psychologist last year, and Stuckey himself said some of it comes from reading "The Energy Bus," a best-seller on positive thinking which Frank gave to several players this summer.

The Truth About Terrence Williams

His form is good, he doesn't miss one.... If you're desperate for basketball like me, you'll watch 3 times and then hang your head in shame.

Boston Globe says Ben Wallace wants to play, but thinks return to Pistons is not "likely". H/T Piston Powered

28

The article is about Grant Hill, but at the bottom it says the following: Veteran center Ben Wallace has indicated that he would like to return to the NBA but it likely won’t be with the Pistons, who have begun a youth movement and plan to go with AndreDrummond, Austin Daye, and Jonas Jerebko as their primary big men. Wallace said he was retiring after last season but changed his mind in July and is looking for a deal . . . I wonder why the source here is a Boston Newspaper, makes me wonder if Ben is shopping there, if this is subterfuge from Joe Dumars, or subterfuge from Ainge and Co.

List three things you hate about Charlie V...

This article may make you feel about at least one of them. The article is a Langlois piece about Villanueva's boxing regimen. CV says how it's forcing him to improve his footwork, hand speed and conditioning. It's also safe to assume that it should improve his physicality and aggressiveness. It will probably not help his shooting percentage, or erase those horrible memories, but it's something, right?

Orlando wakes up from Dwightmare...Somewhere, Scott Perry's palm meets his face

65

This is the stupidest trade for everyone not named Orlando though, but at least it's over. But what happens next: Does Dwight resign with the Lakers??? (Probably) Does Pennsylvania native Andrew Bynum resign with the 76ers? Does Orlando keep dealing to get rid of Turkoglu and/or Harrington? Does Denver have to be included in Western Conference contender conversation? Do the Lakers complete a three team deal that gets them Tayshaun Prince and Will Bynum with the Pistons receiving Steve Blake, Draft Picks, Cash, and another point guard? Who Knows?

"Andre The Unready" declares for the draft

2

I really hope this guys draft stock sinks, or someone else gambles on him earlier, but I can't shake the fear that we wind up with him. He's from UConn, he's probably a "character" guy, joe will think he's getting a steal and the kool-aid will run syrup-thick about his athleticism and room for growth. Unlike Donuts whose stock fell really low, or Boo-doh who was taken just ahead of us, he seems just right to fall to wherever we're picking. From now until draft day, this is what your nightmares will look like, but hopefully not anytime after that.

CONTROVERSY: Cousins wants to fight Blake Griffin NOW WITH VIDEO

32

Cousins went on the record before the game saying that the league "babies" Griffin. After the game he went on to pull what I'll call a 'Charlie' Moments after Griffin's late scoring surge helped the Clippers hold on for their seventh win in eight games, Cousins -- who played just 18 minutes because of foul trouble and had to sit down for good with six seconds left -- made it clear he wanted more. He could be seen jawing with Griffin from the team's bench before heading toward the locker room, then pointing toward the tunnel as if to invite him to the worst kind of postgame party. Bravo, Demarcus. Bravo. Edit: Sorry, this is only the video of Cousins fouling out, which Cousins earned a nice fine from the NBA for complaining about. If I get footage of the two fighting I'll try and post it, I know my money is on Boogie because of the crazy factor.
