Danny , Dave and just were lucky enough to be graced with the presence of Vince Ellis, the Detroit Free Press Pistons beat writer for an interview.  What better time to have Vince on then for the craziness that has surrounded the Pistons the last week.

Rip HamiltonWe talked the Rip Hamilton buyout, the Tayshaun Prince signing and why Rodney Stuckey hasn’t signed with the Pistons.  Vince, as always,  was very informative and had plenty of insight into what would have been an Amnesty situation with Rip had he not went to the team for a buyout.

We thank Vince again  and hope he comes back even if I did give him the business.

Make sure you listen to the podcast and follow Vince on Twitter if you aren’t already at @Vee_Ellis4Freep and read him over at the Freep.

Danny and I just went on a podcasting marathon with my good friend and former Director of Strategic Communications at the Palace Sports and Entertainment Dave Wieme.  You remember the fun we always have with Dave on the Podcast, so we have given him a permanent place on the broadcast whenever he’s available to grace us with his presence.

Dave Wieme

We touched on a plethora of Pistons and NBA info like what we may expect from the organization, Tom Gores, Joe Dumars chance in making it past this season, what happened last season, if T-Mac was a Cancer to the roster, Rodney Stuckey, what our roster might look like, T-Prince sign and trade, if I could “take” Lawrence Frank, what would happen if I had to “toon” Kaman and what our starting lineup might be.  This was a refreshing start to what should be an fun season for Pistons fans.

Make sure you listen to the podcast and follow Mr. Wieme on Twitter.

Brandon Knight Need4Sheed CartoonThe Pistons rookie Brandon Knight Tooned.

Knight, a future Pistons fan favorite just celebrated his 20th Birthday on December 2nd and Pistons fans are clamoring to see what he can do on  court.  I know he’s Knightling fast and can play both the 1 and the 2 guard position.

I’ll coin it now just to get a head start….BranTastic!

Follow Knight on twitter at @BrandonKnight12

I posted this question on Twitter and got so many responses my computer started smoking.

Excluding Darko…Biggest disappointment in the Pistons Organization the past 10 years?

I’m not going to tell you mine, but you might be able to guess.  I would like to hear what your biggest disappointment was in the comments.

It's Gores Time!

Danny and I just went on a podcasting marathon with my good friend and former Director of Strategic Communications at the Palace Sports and Entertainment Dave Wieme. With Tom Gores now officially the owner of the Detroit Pistons we had a ton of things to talk about. So much so that I had to cut the podcast in two. That much you ask…yep!

Dave WiemeWe talk the about the worth of the Pistons and the Palace Organization, Tom Gores, the Rip trade scenario, The NBA Finals, the DB’s in Miami, Kuester, coaching, winning, and not winning, Stuckey, heck I could go on and on, but I would rather you take some time and listen to Dave and his nuggets of wisdom about a team he worked with for most of his adult life.

And he’s funny…so make sure you are following him on Twitter. (We were actually live tweeting during this podcast)

I wasn’t kidding when I said we went on and on, the first half alone is about an hour long.

Second half to follow….and me live tweeting the Gores Press Conference Thursday afternoon at 4:30!

Need4Sheed PodcastWith a little more than a handful of Piston games left this season, Danny and I take a look at the last few games and what’s left in store this season.

There are positives and negatives, but as week look forward and back.   What will this team look like next season?  Will the team be sold soon?  What is the roster going to look like?  Will Tayshaun Prince give the Pistons a home team discount next season? What’s with the upcoming draft? Where does Austin Daye fit in? Is Rodney Stuckey the face of this franchise?  Will Rip be next season player/coach?

We cover a lot.

And Danny once again make a bold prediction!  Listen in, and feel free to mock.
