Stuckey is a player……of the Week

Posted · 7 Comments

Rodney Stuckey named EC Player of the week.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – An award usually passed back and forth among LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and a select few others has been claimed by someone knocking on the door to their exclusive club: Rodney Stuckey.

Stuckey led the Pistons to a perfect 4-0 week despite the absence of Rip Hamilton in all of them and Rasheed Wallace in nearly three full games, averaging 23 points, 5.3 assists and 4.5 rebounds a game.

Since Stuckey moved into the starting lineup on Dec. 17, the Pistons are 10-3 and have won seven straight games – a streak that began with a win over Chicago in which Stuckey erupted for 40 points. Throw in Stuckey’s three other starts this season and the Pistons are 13-3 in those games. Keith Langlois

If that weren’t enough for the Pistons’ young star, he’s also getting his jersey retired at Eastern Washington this week.

Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey will have his jersey retired when Eastern Washington plays Weber State on Sunday.

Stuckey played two seasons for EWU before becoming a first round NBA draft pick in 2007. He is currently averaging 13 points per game as a starter for the Pistons. He will sign autographs after the game.

This would have been his senior year with the Eagles.

Stuckey, a native of Kent, Wash., played his freshman and sophomore seasons at Eastern. He averaged 24 points per game each season. After being academically ineligible coming out of high school, Stuckey attained a 3.34 grade point average at the Cheney school. Via

UPDATE: Matt’s also got a post with a great video about Rodney over at DBB – check it out.

    The best thing about all this limelight is that you know with Rodney it won’t go to his head. It’s jsut another day at teh office for him.

    Im glad Stuck got these awards. He deserved it with great play. If we can get wins in our next three games that would be HUGE! I can’t wait to watch the Denver game and see Chauncey again.

    this is total bullcrap… i tried to order a stuckey jersey by emailing the palace lockerroom store and got this reply:

    Good Morning
    I am sorry but at this time we are sold out of that item. We did order more
    and when they arrive we will make them availble on the web so please check
    there often for it. Have a nice day.

    Stuckey’s from my hometown of Kent. Even though he went to Kentwood I’ll forgive him because he’s a great guy in addition to being a great player. Good to see that even with the not so SuperSonics being hijacked, the Northwest’s basketball scene is getting big dap on the national stage. Stuckey and Brandon Roy in particular should be All-Stars for a decade or so.

    Now if Curry will only fix the rotation and permanently kill small ball I smell Ice for Dice in ’09! Go Pistons!

    Stuckey deserved that award. But hope he does not let it get to his head.
