So what if the he Pistons lost their 9th game in a row to the Miami Heat 98-81 Wednesday night at the Palace. And so what if Charlie Villanueva isn’t all that happy that John Kuester is giving his time to the Rookies to see what they can do.
I’ll tell you why you shouldn’t care, because of this ankle breaking move Will Bynum put on former Piston Carlos Arroyo. Well I might be being over dramatic about the whole thing, but you have to look for the silver lining somewhere don’t you?

Not only do I love the move, but I absolutely love what George Blaha and Greg Kelser said about Arroyo after it. If you didn’t notice, play it again. They made sure they didn’t give too much credit to Arroyo’s skills, considering they watched what he did in Detroit.
Personally I never liked Arroyo’s game. To me he is better suited for the And1 Mix Tape tour (is that still around) rather than the NBA. Heck, I think The Professor could take him. Him in a Piston uniform trying to run the point was like someone sitting next to me and eating a bag of Krunchers in front of a microphone…..brutal.
