I just received an email from a Need4sheed reader RJ Balde who told me his sister was on board a flight to NYC and who was sitting in the seat right next to her? Mr. Big Shot himself. Seems as that Chauncey was on his way to talk to Isiah. No way to confirm that, but I thought I would pass it along.
I have had my share of Pistons run-ins with players from the past to present. A few days ago I went to one of my favorite restaurants. I was waiting for my table and talking to Nick, the manager, whom I know because of Need4Sheed.com. As we were talking about the season that just passed and what moves were in store for the team, in walks in John Hammond, the Pistons Vice President of Basketball operations.
My friend Nick jokingly asks for some inside information about the team and then introduces me to Mr. Hammond. We then both quietly sat down and waited for our tables. A few minutes later my table was ready and as I got up to be seated I made eye contact with him so I walked over to him and asked him if it was ok for me to mention our meeting in the site. Well he couldn’t have been nicer, not only did he say it was fine, he pulled out his wallet and handed me his business card and shook my hand again. So not only did I get to meet one of men behind the scenes of our beloved team, I’ve got the Vice President of Basketball operations for The Detroit Pistons card in my wallet. Pretty cool.
