So, right now we are a day removed from the last game that the Detroit Pistons played in the 2010-11 NBA season and boy am I glad that it’s over. Sure they won more games then they did last season, but I would have gladly chucked 15 games down the drain to have avoided this seasons Buffonery.
The Pistons lost Jonas Jerebko in the first pre-season game. Then never really got to see what they drafted in Terrico White when he broke his foot. The organization and fans crossed their fingers as they saw bidders for the team come and go no matter how much dough they could toss in the air. Coaches and players butted heads then coaches and players butted heads then coaches and players butted heads. Then suddenly Rip Hamilton was stricken with some kind of “flu” that modern medicine couldn’t cure no matter how hard they tried. Then there was absolutely no moves made before the NBA trade deadline. Then coaches and player butted heads then there was this crazy day when a lot of players just weren’t at practice. Then Rip played, then Rodney didn’t. Then when Rodney did play he did his best D Wade impression and when it was all said and done he said this.
“Being in the Doghouse I just wanted come back and play hard for my teammates and my family.” “Change is on the way.”
All the while Greg Monroe just kept on putting up double-doubles.
Now we have a new a new Shiny owner, who likes to dance and says he has big plans.
You’ll hear more from me soon, but trust when I tell you I’m not mourning this team or this season in any sort of way.
