Thanks to Thomas L. for the quick link.

    This absolutely sucks. I thought last nights game was really impressive. EVERYBODY played well, especailly Rodney. I think the pistons would be more excited for the regular season to start if last nights tradgety wouldn’t of happened. It didn’t seem like he broke it. The replay just should him all of a sudden hold his hand. I feel bad for him….get well soon!

    Oh, and Sheed did amazing last night. Imagine what his stats are going to be like playing 35 minutes instead of the 20.

    I’m a tad worried about the injury of Rodney Stuckey. I’m sure that Flip Murray can handle his own and Lindsey Hunter will provide great experience during the season. Fortunately, the Pistons also have another stand out in Jarvis Hayes. The 4 year veteran has a great looking shot and can drain a lot of shots from downtown.
    Yes, the loss of Rodney Stuckey is very very unfortunate, but as one player drops down, another player will step up into his own. Everyone also has to remember the return of Rip Hamilton on Nov. 1 for the season opener. Its a long season Piston fans, Rodney Stuckey will be back..

    That really does suck. I just hope he gets better sooner than later and maybe he’ll be back before we know it. :(

    Great news! Young guy that wants to play, he’ll bounce right back.
    Jarvis is thriving because of the atmosphere in Detroit. Agent 0 is a selfish obnoxious ball hog.

    Why the hell is that dirty Bowen ahead of Sheed as Defense Player of the Year? Spur’s win last year is suspect at most because of the way that gambling ref called those games.

    Sheed and Tayshaun and even Big Ben has NEVER kneed anyone in their balls when they play defense nor has anyone ever gotten seriously hurt. Bowen needs to a taste of his own dirty medicine.

    “Commissioner David Stern says more than half of referees violated gambling policies.”

    ya but those violations were due to stupid rules set by David Stern that he will be changing. The rules they violated were gambling in casinos in the offseason and small stuff like that. donaghys was hopefully an isolated case. These violations have nothing to do with betting and fixing games. sure refs make a lot of calls we dont agree with, like the many techs that sheed gets. but that doesnt mean they’re all involved in the mob like donaghy was.

    I know but when I read the heading I was so interested in reading it and I thought all of would be too so I kept it interesting *LOL*. I was thinking it was going to be about the betting and fixing games.

    Well, lets look at the plus side.

    If you’re going to suffer an injury, it’s definitely better to face it at the beginning of the season as opposed to the playoffs. Six weeks is a short recovery period following a surgery. Stuckey is young, athletic and healthy. It’s Stuckey’s left hand, not his shooting hand. He’ll probably be able to practice and continue to learn the plays and pace of the NBA.

    I’m very optimistic that Stuckey will be a cornerstone of the Pistons for many years to come. I realize professional basketball is a risky career, one in which players have to be extremely talented and lucky, and they’ll have to contend with injuries, trades, and the duration of their occupation.

    I mean, how many people can plan on retirement in their early thirties? I’m sure many players have a sense of entitlement and a very, very enviable lifestyle that can be… distracting, but I think Stuckey has distanced himself by the way he faced his academic problems, his choice in schools, and the manner in which he plays.

    It’s a broken hand. He’ll be fine. The Pistons will be fine, too.

    To coin a phrase from like every single Piston player: “It is what it is.”

    I feel bad for Stuckey but I don’t see his injury as having any effect on the Pistons’ season. Neither does Keith Langlois:
