I don’t know why people actually want to have me on their shows,  I do nothing but harrass, degrade and cause trouble.  You would think Dave and JP of The Palace/Garden would have learned their lesson the last time they asked me to join them on their podcast, but I’m sure they feel different now.

Head over to the Palace/Garden to listen to the podcast, where we talk about the Pistons issues, their strengths, their weaknesses, a little Charlie V and my inside connections at the Palace.  Dave and JP probably won’t way this, but I sure had fun on their show.

Need4Sheed InterviewThere is no better way to kick off the Pistons season than having Chris Iott of Booth Newspapers and Mlive.com join me for an interview on the Need4Sheed podcast.

Chris gave me some exciting nuggets about the team and what he thinks of the upcoming season.  We talked, T-Mac, Daye, Charlie V, Stuckey, Ben Wallace and expectations.  Most surprising…who he says has the “sweetest shot” on the team.

Take a listen to the podcast, but most of all start following Chris over on Twitter, he’s always quick with the lowdown on the team.

I would like to thank  Chris for taking the time to do the show and for the great interview and insight.  If you’re not reading him over at MLive…you should.

In Arnie Kander We TrustBasketball fans in the great state of Michigan don’t expect their players to go injury free all season long, but what they know they can count when they do is that the Pistons have one of the best, if not the best strength and conditioning coaches in the NBA.

Players with chronic injuries, possible career ending injuries or players that are playing in the twilight of their careers tend to know just what our behind the scenes gem can do.  Just ask Antonio McDyess, Chris Webber, Ben Wallace or (lets hope) Tracy McGrady just what Arnie can do.

Sure he may have some voodoo like remedies for what ails them, and he may push players to their limits, but the man shows results.

The newest member of the Pistons to be Arine’s patient/pupil is Jonas Jerebko.  The unfortunate injury in the Pistons first pre-season game that has sidelined The Swede for what looks like the entire season was something that both Jonas and the Pistons didn’t need.  Besides rooting for the speedy and full recovery for one of our favorite players, we can be confident in the fact that he’s in the best hands possible.

Arnie is on the job 24/7, literally.

It seems as though Arnie really has taken matters in his hands by inviting Jonas to stay at his home during his rehab.  Yes…Arie and Jonas are roommates.

If that’s not taking your work home with you I don’t know what is.

So the new friends will work and live together.  And if that wasn’t good enough…it will be documented .

COMING SOON:

Jonas Jerebko and Arnie Kander star in BOSOM BUDDIES – The Second Season  available on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Jonas Jerebko and Arnie Kander - Bosom Buddies

Ok so that’s not entirely true, but this 80′s reference to Tom Hanks start was the first thing that came to mind.  Now I’m not implying anything when it comes to the cross dressing, but Arine really does make a for a handsome woman.

If you didn’t think that Kander was a special kind of guy, this is all the proof you need.  As we say in Detroit…In Arnie We Trust.

As I mentioned before, here is the information for two more Need4Sheed Fantasy Basketball Leagues.  The same rules apply and the winners get something BYNUMITE.

If this video mix doesn’t put a smile on your face then something is seriously wrong with you.

Cartoon Terrico WhiteYou knew this one was coming too!  Terrico White, the Detroit Pistons dunking sensation is has  been tooned.

T-Mack, Greg Monroe and now Terrico.  Unless Dumars makes some moves soon these may be it as far as new toons for the Pistons season.  Unless we get a great new owner and I feel the need to toon them.

If you missed what White did during the Rookie photoshoot, here it is.

Cartoon Tracy McGradyYou knew it was coming,  so here it is. I  honestly  never thought I would EVER be making a Tracy McGrady toon.  But then again I said the same thing  about Allen Iverson. Lets hope the situation turns out entirely different for the Pistons.

Jimi Hendrix Rasheed WallaceWhat will we do without a little Rasheed Wallace when the 2010-2011 basketball season is upon us?

Now that Rasheed will be doing other things with his time while we are busy keeping up with the NBA I couldn’t help but reminisce about his memorable times in a Pistons uniform.  So I decided to start a recurring segment here on Need4Sheed called Nostalgia SheedStalgia.

Before I start bringing you ridiculous quotes or amazing shots he called glass on, I decided to bring back something that pretty much made this website what it is.

Will Bynum, as always was kind enough to do something special (besides dunking on 7 footers) for Pistons fans.  I put a call out to for you to to “Ask Will” a question.

You asked, and he answered.

We originally thought we were going to do a podcast, but due to technical difficulties we did it the old fashioned way.

So here we go…

From Damien Washington
Time to go down memory lane: The Bobcats are in town. 5:24 left in the 2nd. You looking over the shoulder of Gerald Wallace, Stuckey sets a screen for Charlie, you burst to the baseline….

WHAT’S ON YOUR MIND?!

Actually 2 or 3 plays before, we ran the exact play and twice I came off the pick, got into the paint, and got an assist and (I think) a basket,or foul. I knew Gerald Wallace was a gambler on defense, so I faked the pick and roll and went baseline..I saw Tyson Chandler and there it was….

(In other words: What made you decide, “You know, I wanna dunk” and then pull off said dunk against Tyson Chandler?)
The opportunity presented itself.

Will if you could go back in time and play against any NBA player, who would you most want to dunk on?

Bill Russell. Because I think he is one of the greatest defenders of all time.The ultimate defender. He made blocking shots an art. Not only did he block a lot of shots he altered just as many. I think the challenge of dunking on him would be a lot tougher and extremely exciting.

From Mike Brouty
Who has been the biggest inspiration in your life as far as motivating you to get you from where you were years ago to where you are now as a pivotal player on the Detroit Pistons?

I don’t think it was a particular person but many things and people have motivated me over time. My upbringing… the things I’ve seen and lived, competition, believing that I’m just as good as the best player. I believe that God has blessed me with an amazing talent level and I know my full potential can only be reached by outworking the next person and that fire alone motivates me to succeed…on top of being in love with mastering the game.

From Wade Saari
Will, what has been your favorite moment in a Detroit Piston uniform?

Making the playoffs my first year. The atmosphere of the playoffs and being a part of that would be my best moment.

From James Steven (Austrailia)
Are you ok with coming off the bench? Would you prefer to start?
What have you done this off-season to prepare for next year?

I would definitely prefer to start but I’ve been through so many things and in so many situations and played so many roles that I can adjust to any role and be successful.


This year, I’m training under Tim Grover at Attack Athletics..I’m making 300 to 500 3′s a day, doing physical therapy on the ankles, defensive drills, improving my conditioning, hip strengthening and breaking down film on myself and the strengths and weaknesses of league point guards.

From Fariduddin Muhammad (Chicago)
Being a native of Chicago, how has Chicago shaped you as a man and ball player?

The things I’ve been through in Chicago made me who I am today. It helped me to be able to appreciate the opportunity at hand and to NOT let it pass me by.When I go home and look into the kids’ faces and see the hope, despite the circumstances… is when my desires burn to be great….that was me. I have to be at my best for them. I have to show them that the dream can become a reality.

From Ollie (North Carolina)
Will, have you seen the film Black Dynamite? If not I highly recommend it. If so, have you thought of asking the folks at the Palace to play the DYNA-MITE jingle modified of course to BYNU-MITE whenever you have one of your incredible dunks?

LOL…no, I haven’t seen it. But I’m sure it’s probably funny.

From Chris LaPensee (Ann Arbor) and Me!
When are we going to see BYNUMITE in the Slam Dunk Contest?!?!

Hopefully next year. If the good Lord continues to bless me with great health I would love to be in it!

From Janae Richardson (Chicago)
I am a single parent raising boys in Chicago. I read about your upbringing and wanted to know what did his mother say to him to keep him away from the trouble? How was he encouraged to NOT join in with everyday street thugs? What can I tell my boys? Ages 13 and Tell him also how much Chicago loves and needs him to BE an example. The youth are watching,listening and hoping.

My moms focus everyday of working and supporting the family spoke for itself. I use that same focus and approach in life, with whatever I’m doing. I have two brothers who went in the gang and street direction early on and I learned from their situations what to do and what NOT to do. The streets have NO future. On top of that, I always played basketball and the neighborhood knew and respected that, for the most part. I would suggest you tell your children that it’s okay to be different and to say no. It’s okay to set goals and chase your dreams and that the only way to achieve it is through hard work and discipline. And to never be afraid of working hard at whatever they decide to do. I hear you Janae.

From Jacon St. Pierre
My question is how much of an adrenaline rush do you get when you fly over guys that are almost twice the size of you?

I get a calm rush looking at the fear on the facial expressions of the opposing teams, the coaches and the fans at away games and at home games it gives me a big rush and makes me want to do it again…and size doesn’t matter..lol

From Joanne Ross
McDyess was famous for his superstitions. Any unique pre-game rituals?

I pray…everything else is personal

From Danny Bohnlein

Is there any fear when you take the ball to the rim and elevates when a 7 footer goes up with you to block the shot?

No fear, none whatsoever!

Will loved all your questions and unfortunately his favorite was on that I had asked him, but he did pick a runner up of the Limited Edition BYNUMITE T-Shirt.

The Winner is…Janae Richardson (Chicago)

I would like to thank Will again for taking the time to answer our questions, but I’m even more excited that we get to see  him in a Pistons uniform for the next three seasons.

Not back to the question I asked Will…
I know you prefer Will The Thrill, but I have been contemplating a name change here at Need4Sheed.com, would it be so bad if I changed to BYNUMITE.com?

LOL..Natalie, I’m with that. I’d love that..It would be an unmeasurable honor!

I choose yours…Natalie…lol.. But if I have to choose one I choose Janae Richardson’s.

Now with that, I leave you with this.

I think it’s probably time to change the site’s name. I have a handful to choose from, but I may just put it to a vote. Stay TOONED.
