    Hey Nat,

    Any word on what Joe D is gonna do about the Rip and Michael Curry problem? It seems to me that even if they get Boozer and Gordon one of them has to go or its gonna be here we go again. I dont think Rip wants to be a Piston anymore. The Billups trade did it, and if thats the case Joe should trade him now before he gets a year older or wrecks the up coming season. Oh yeah, one more thing. Any chance Lamb can get in there and be an asst. coach? So if Curry sucks he can take over for the 2011 season.

    No word yet on Rip…but my guess is one of them will go and to be honest, Rip has the most trade value so it just may be him.

    Curry…shaky ground.

    I don’t see Lamb as the coach…though I would rather see him running the team that MC.

    EPSN just reported that they thought the Pistons would not go after a “big target” and would get 2 mid level players. They guessed Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva. We will have to wait and see… In Joe we trust!

    JoeD will not hire a formal team mate. It’ll put him in a tough position.

    Why don’t we get Jeff Van Gundy? It’s funny how Joe put the whole season on ‘drama’. No fault on the Coach at all.

    If they pick up Ben Gordon I think I will throw up!!!

  6. Natalie Sitto

    I’m with you…not a big fan of Gordon.

    WOW!!! We must have ESP..N! LOL….Now who the hell is gonna coach them?? I agree with you about Lamb coaching them ratter than another lame duck coach like Curry or Flip. And is Sheed for sure not gonna sign with the Pistons again? I wish he would take a pay cut an stay in the D. You think Joe would keep him at a discount?

    Thanks Nat!!
