Vote Jason Maxiell AGAIN….he made it past Powe, now he’s up against David Lee in the Conference Finals of Hoop Addict’s Floor Burn Tournament.
Joe Dumars talks to Keith Langlois…“I think that I would be very surprised if anyone called at this point to offer the type of deal I was open to and had been open to doing. I don’t expect that call. So therefore, I expect us to go to war, if you will, with the guys we have on this roster we have right now, with the 14 guys we have now. And I say that just because I don’t expect to hear from anyone at this point about the size of the deal we were talking about doing.” Joe Dumars on the possibility of late deals.
Pistonscast has the Isaiah Thomas vs. Chauncey Billups debate.
Detroit Athlete of the decade tournament, my Pistons vote went to Ben Wallace in Round One, but Chauncey won out and went on to Round 2.
Rip Hamilton endorses Rip it Energy Drink, I was going to take a picture of the billboard that I pass on a daily basis off The Lodge freeway, but the website is much better. Thanks to K-Dot for the link.
Senseless diss of Tayshaun Prince by ESPN’s Pat Forde“Unless the USOC convinces Phelps to try modern pentathlon or subs him onto the U.S. basketball team in place of Tayshaun Prince, the show will go on without him. The question is whether anyone will care.” Hey Pat…where is your Gold Medal being showcased? Feel free to email Pat with whatever you feel necessary.
UPDATE: Team Need4Sheed member Yuko got a response from Pat about his Prince comment:“Yuko: Thanks for writing. I covered Tayshaun for four years at Kentucky and know him pretty well. I like him. I know he’s a good basketball player. It was a joke. Take it as such. Pat Forde” FYI Pat if your comment was meant to be a joke, it didn’t come off that way. We’ll let it go for the simple fact you answered the email.
