    I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Amir will be showing his real talent on the basketball court — NOT American Idol LOL He’s pretty cute though =]

    Wow, Wow, Wow, finally it’s good to see that he can hang with the other clowns on his team, the Pistons are all a bunch of clowns, and from the looks of the video Amir is no different from the rest!!!!

    I’ll admit I was a little disappointed when I found out he wasn’t actually singing but it was awesome anyway.

    Long hair has never done anything for me so I love the cut.

    I think there’s a reason why he’s “trying out” for American Idol at his house, not at an official audition. But seriously, he looks so much better with short hair. I bet Rip recommended the new style to him.

    I think Amir could be doing better things than making silly lip-syncing videos. The Pistons already have enough antics on their team with Sheed on the court, and they don’t need anything making them look silly off the court. Stick to your game Amir, singing’s not your game. (And I’ll bet you anything it’s Rasheed holding that camera)

  19. gee gee

    thelowblock don’t be a spoilsport. he is just trying to have fun and it is cute too. i never thought boys with braids were cute and it made them look personally childish to me so i am so happy to see that he got them suckas cute off, mos def an upgrade. looking sexy there and singing a or lipsyncing a sexy song lol big things poppa and little things stopping for the pistons this year, and i hope rip has kept his braids off too. cute vid too, we get a chance to see his personality and it definately fits with the pistons

    detroit fa life babay

    Get over yourself Lowblock, it’s all in good fun. I am sure Amir is doing just fine on the court or since you seem to know it all maybe you should share your insight with us.

    Plus your comments on Sheed really were off the mark, it’s all about the Pistons not YOU.

    btw has anyone heard anything about c webb???.. he should be making a decision soon..

  22. gee gee

    man i hope his decision is to stay with the pistons because he automatically clicked like he was the missing link. that doesn’t happen often. maybe it he is trying to surprise us and leave us in suspense until it gets close to opening season. lets just cross our fingers and pray that we get webb”star” back.
