  • Sheed might sit tonight against the Warriors.
  • Chauncey is weighing all his options when it comes to free agency.
  • “Here’s one for you: You may have noticed that Wallace was on the bench in the first half of the game at Miami Friday but not in the second half. Here’s why. Somebody from the league office saw him on the bench, deemed that his dress was not appropriate, called Pistons PR man Kevin Grigg and had Wallace banished to the locker room. Wallace was wearing dress slacks and a long-sleeve, collered, button-down dress shirt — I think it’s called a walking suit, but don’t hold me to that. Bottom line, for Sheed, it was formal wear. But some league fashionista didn’t like it. Apparently, the dress code mandates that players wear a sports coat when they are on the bench. Whatever. If he was wearing jeans or a sweatsuit, yeah, boot him off the bench. But to pick on him for what he wore Friday was petty. Sheed had to stay in the locker room again Saturday for the same reason.” Via The Detroit News
  • I do believe that the same thing happened to Shaq earlier this season, but I don’t think he was removed from the bench.
  • News Flash – Wade is going to put off surgery to be ready for the playoffs.
  • Pistons owner Bill Davidson donates 75 million dollars.
  • If there are any aspiring sports journalists in the area The Journalism department at Eastern Michigan University will hold the first J-Day March 19, 2007 from 8am – 2pm. J-Day is a day-long workshop that will cover topics in the field of jounalism including;
    sports writing.
  • If anyone has a link that they think is Around The Way worthy send it to me at and I will take a look.

    75 million? It probably didn’t even dent that bank account. One of my favorite things to do during time outs at games is take the binoculars and check out grandpa Bill. I always get a kick out of seeing his hippie looking son laid back without a care in the world. Me and my dad always get a laugh outta that. Must be nice. Although life may not be as good as it seems, I have a feeling the Davidsons are doing just fine.

    The NBA Dress Code only specifies that a sports jacket must be worn courtside by inactive players, along with socks and dress shoes or boots. Wouldn’t it be fun to get a local fashion designer or student to come up with the most outrageous yet compliant “Sheedwear” possible? Get the ball rolling, Nat!

    they only did that to sheed because he plays for detroit.. the team they like to pick on

    the dress code is gay this year anyways

    so are all the other new rules theyre making to make the nba better.. its dumb .. fans enjoy the sport so leave it alone.. dont fix things that arent broken

    i think d wade will regret his decision about putting off surgery

    and ill be EXTREMELYYY depressed if chauncey leaves the pistons.. and i mean EXTREMELY !!! not lieing on that one!
