Pistons vs. Pacers: The Return Of The Chunky One

Buckle up Pistons fans, we are headed towards new depths of futility. Tonight's game could mean the worst record in the league, Lawrence Franks' 21st consecutive loss as a head coach, and the...

Utah has traded forward Mehmet Okur to New Jersey for a 2015 second-round draft pick.

At this point I feel like we're being punk'd

PISTONS 85, KNICKS 71: This was a tight game throughout before the Pistons stunned the Knicks with a 14-0 run to finish the game and held New York scoreless over the last 4:43. Rodney Stuckey led the finishing kick and scored a game-high 22 points. Carmelo Anthony scored 22 points and the Knicks got promising results from rookie Iman Shumpert, who put up six points, three boards, four assists, two steals and a block in 15 minutes. But New York lost for the second straight time since knocking off Miami to open the season. Amar'e Stoudemire scored just nine points and the Knicks were just 7-of-10 from the foul stripe.

Don't Look Now... Lockout sides may have a secret deal in place

2

Long story short: If the owners give back a little bit of money and willing to accept a cap that is just 'semi'-hard, they'll pretty much meet the players demands. Given how much is at stake, it seems that they would do that. The author, Chris Sheridan, has broken away from ESPN and is trying to make a go for it on his own with the most amateur looking sports blog I've ever seen. It still is cool seeing him out on his own and is worth checking out. This is all well and good, but lets be real. The only NBA we're going to see anytime soon is DBB vs. PTR

If League Wins Their Lawsuit, Players Contracts Are Voided When The NBPA Decertifies

15

"Finally, the league's lawsuit also makes an attempt to secure support for massive salary reform should the union dissolve. The NBA asked the court to declare that such a decertification would in turn void all existing player contracts because they're guided by the union's involvement in the old CBA. Without a union and a collective bargaining relationship, the league argued, the terms and conditions of those previously negotiated contracts would not apply."

also Derrick Rose, Derrick Williams, Javale McGee...and... Derrick Fisher? Well it was still a pretty sick lineup, and perhaps the only thing qualifying as Summer Ball that we will see this year.

And now we have this to look forward to too

1
The NBA goes away now, and goes away for a long time. The final sound at the end of the draft’s first round will resonate over a long, hot summer – and maybe a winter – without basketball. This time a year ago, there was a Lakers championship with Kobe Bryant(notes), the summer of LeBron and a season of spectacular drama. Now, there was David Stern marching out of the boos of draft night, and into the boos of the board room.

Pistons need defense and, thus, Bismack Biyombo

+

Some insanely handsome writer who may or not be a DBB'er wrote an article for the free press audience that is more or less a response to this anti- Bismack article published in the free press this weekend. It perhaps should have been titled "A first taste of the Congolaid" or "BLOCKS AND DUNKS: A primer" but they don't let you pick your titles.

Everything you need to know about who the Pistons should draft&nbsp

Ricky Rubio signs with Timberwolves

28

While I'm still with Kevin love's initial reaction " Ricky Rubio huh? I'll believe it when I see it... " Perhaps this will raise the value of European players like Jonas Valanciunas, and reduce the fears of them not signing over here.

What do Rodney, CP3, LeBron, and Carmelo now have in common?

18

"Stuckey, who will become a restricted free agent in six weeks if there is no NBA lockout, left Seattle-based Steve Banks in favor of Leon Rose. Rose is the agent for LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Pistons teammate Richard Hamilton."

Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars scouting in Slovenia this week

29

Joe Dumars has a pretty weird life. He can travel to Slovenia, be treated like a celebrity, have casual conversations with prime ministers, and joke with reporters while being interviewed by the local news media "What! This is Ljubljana? I thought I was in Paris." He can do all this, yet he can't stop from getting booed in his own building. What is he doing there? Good question. He didn't give any specific answers in the article, just said he wanted to watch a good basketball game (cough since he hasn't seen any at the palace cough). This game in particular...but he's too coy to say who he's scouting. He could be: - Scouting Jan Vesely, a tall skinny athletic forward who can't hit free throws and has no post skills, and he doesn't like defense much either. But man can he throw down some dunks. - Killing time before heading up to see the semifinals of the lithuanian league featuring Jonas Valanciunas and Lietuvos Rytas. - Hopping across the Adriatic to catch a Benetton Treviso game starring Donatas Montiejunas on the 23rd? - Scouting a couple of stars from the Spurs undefeated summer league team last year, Curtis Jerrells and James Gist, currently playing in Slovenia. - Creating press to cover up his secret meeting with Bismack Biyombo, and his agents where he promises to draft him at 7, and if drafted early, Bismack demands that the team trade him to Detroit for the 7 pick and Charlie Villanueva. Either way, the fact that he off the couch and hundreds of miles away from his McGriddles means he is taking the idea of drafting a euro seriously, and that he's just as afraid of pulling another Darko as everybody else is.

"Joe Dumars isn't going anywhere."

Detroit Free Press: "More good news: Joe Dumars isn't going anywhere. It's believed Gores has told him that he can remain president for as long as he desires. It's difficult imagining Dumars walking away after getting an owner who is as committed as he is in restoring pride to an organization reduced to rubble under Davidson's two years as keeper to Bill Davidson's basketball legacy." Detroit News: "In other words, Dumars, who's safe as president of basketball operations, and Gores have work to do." Joe Dumars on twitter: "Can I get you a sandwich Mr @TomGores ?? Uhhh, I swear the last three years were all Karen's fault. She MADE me eat that bundt cake."

No Way Dumars Can Bring Back Free Agents

What's significant about this article isn't the poetic writing, or the authors masculine physique, but the fact that the Free Press chose to publish it at all. Perhaps they are taking an editorial stance against JOD since the writers can't without blowing their relationship with the team.
