The Pistons are home, for a brief stay, to take on The 16-43 Sonics tonight at the Palace. These are the games that are easily looked over, especially since the The Pistons last regular season matchup against The Celtics comes just one day after this one. The Pistons will have Chauncey back for tonight’s game, but still no official word on Ratliff.
Pistons fans will get to see their first glimpse of the possible rookie of the year tonight. Kevin Durant has been playing great for Seattle despite their record. If Kevin’s Rookie-Sophomore game appearance was any indication of how he will play tonight, than you can look for him to take the majority of his teams shots. He’s averaging 19 per game and shooting an impressive 87% from the stripe.
I just had a long conversation with a friend about how things are so different for fans these days. When I grew up ESPN was just getting off the ground, there was no league pass and you could only watch a handful of games on TV. It was hard enough to watch your own local team let alone get to see how other teams played, well unless they were playing against your team. I look back at all those memories realize just how vivid they are. So if you as me, this is how I remember The Sonics.
Leave ’em in the comments.
