The Pistons vs. The Bulls

The 11-20 as you probably already know are on an eight game losing streak. An afternoon New Years Eve game at home against the Bulls may be just the thing to break them out of their current slump.

The 12-17  Bulls have their own internal issues to deal with, but that doesn’t mean the team isn’t winning.

Injury Report:

No current news on the availability of Will Bynum, who sat out Tuesday night’s game to rest his ankles.
Charlie Villanueva is a game time decision.

Early afternoon tip is at 3:00 pm EST and will be televised on Fox Sports Detroit. For the radio broadcast tune in to 9.71 The Ticket, or follow the action over at NBA.com for those of you working on New Years Eve.

    Detroit Pistons Breakdown: Pistons Roster Is a Broken Engine

    Whenever Charlie Villanueva touched the ball, he shot it. Fortunately for Detroit, his teammates didn’t pass him the ball very often. Defense, passing, rebounding? Nope, Villanueva only plays with the ball in his hands. How did a team give this loser a $30 million contract?

    I just wanted to say that i dont know if anyone caught it but rip was smiling as i think tyrus thomas went to the line at the end of the game. Rip needs to go. He obviously doesn’t care about the team and he just wants out. And from his personal friends I hear that he wants to be traded.

    I was hesitating on posting about my secret wish for Mr. Dumars to trade Rip, so thank you to those of you coming out to say it first.

    However, what team would want a SG that demands to be a starter while his numbers are on the decline? Besides his contract is really un-trade-able.

    Maybe he’ll come around and admit that Gordon should start.

    we cant get bosh because we have all our money tied up in charlie v & ben gordon, charlie v has a 5 year $35 million contract. He is untradable. Ben gordon is also untradable with a 5 year contract. Everyone here likes to talk about trading rip but he is in a long term contract until 2013. Jason Maxiell also has a terrible contract, also through 2013.

    I read that nobody in the NBA wants rip because of his contract and his age. So that only leaves Tayshaun, Bynum and the rookies. Tayshaun’s contract expires next year so he is the guy other teams want the most.

    Joe Dumars screwed up by signing Rip, Maxiell, Charlie V & Ben Gordon to these expensive long term contracts.

    Detroit should have been in the hunt for the 2010 free agency but instead we got all these overpaid perimeter players.

    If Joe Dumars is smart

    He would trade Rip, Tayshuan, Maxiell & Kwame and our 2011 2nd Round Draft pick for Tracy McGrady another Rocket expiring contract and 2 Future 1st Round Picks

    That way we can dump Tay, Rip, Kwame and Maxiell Contracts and get an expiring 23 Million Dollar contract.

    Guys if we suck this year we suck. We going to have a losing record this year anyways so why not go for the lottery…

    Go after Free Agency and get studs like Amare & Rudy Gay

    We can be in the lottery for the #1 pick and if we get the #1 pick we can draft John Wall. If we get John Wall we should get rid of Stuckey for 2 future 1st round draft picks from someone

    Imagine this starting rotation
    PG – John Wall
    SG – Ben Gordon
    SF – Rudy Gay
    PF – Charlie Villanuava
    C – A’mare Stoudemire

      i would keep stuckey start him next to john wall and have bg come off the bench, also would have cv31 come off the bench with jerebko as a starter

      wall
      stuckey
      gay
      jerebko
      amare

      bench
      bynum
      bg
      daye
      cv31
      kwame
      big ben?

      now that is a good team even without rip tay and maxiell, joe d u better get tmac free up the cap space and get gay and amare, draft wall (god i hope so stuckey would be unstoppable at sg with wall at pg stuckey would avg 30 ppg) . GO PISTONS

    ben gordon is a great 6th man, not such a good starter the bulls found that out, he has trouble in the starting rotation double teamed. charlie v is also better off the bench for an offensive boost because his defense is all it was supposed to be, that is non-existant.

    rip hamilton is not being sought by anyone in the nba, nobody wants his big long contract and age. Maxiell also has a long expensive contract that nobody wants. “Dump” is the operative word here. Nobody wants these contracts, so it is impossible to trade them. Everyone is looking for expiring contracts, and we have one player that the other teams want, Prince.

    So let’s start again, and look at what we are able to trade. We can’t trade maxiell, rip or kwame, who has hands like bricks.

    We can trade Prince, dajuan summers, will bynum. That’s it.

    I have no idea what Joe D is gonna do but your scenario is impossible.

    Here is a ray of hope (from Langlois’ True Blue):

    “…The expected disappointment of their current plight aside, there’s not the hint of fissure in the locker room, the primary reason players like Stuckey and Hamilton remain optimistic.

    “One thing about this group,” said Stuckey, who said he expects to be in the lineup when the Pistons next play on Tuesday, “we always stick with each other. Even though we’re going through a hard time right now, we’re still with each other and behind each other 110 percent.”

    “We’ve got everybody back,” Hamilton said – and even if Will Bynum remains out with two sprained ankles, he’s expected back before too long, and that counts as positive news on the injury front where this year’s Pistons are concerned. “That’s the most positive thing about the whole situation. We’re going into the new year with everybody on the floor and that’s a great thing.”

    I can’t describe how terrible this team plays.Rip is not hitting wide open shots (this guy is known as a ‘shooter’).They dont play with any effort,besides Jerebko and Ben…charlie Villanueva is just…omg….he took shots like…he is really,really the worst player right now,he is not passing,defending or rebounding.i mean we had a chance to grab David Lee!Hopefully we don’t get into a Knicks-like situation:They had also all these overpaid players in 06 and no success.

    And the Bulls had 24 TOs to our 14.But the reason we lose is our shooting:I mean,that this team is not great defensivly is something i’ve known,but we are also a bad offensive team,despite our shooters and Coach Q.
    FG&:Bulls 47.8% Pistons 38.6%.

    Three years in a Philippine university… I know, I know… Not anywhere close to American levels of competition, but still more than most idiots talking sh!t… Yet I don’t go around running my mouth demanding this and that be done because I know for sure that this move will solve that problem and that that player will never be back to his former self because of ?? and that this team, with the limited time they have had together, will never amount to anything and that the aforementioned move will have that effect thus making this team sssooooooo much better because the front office is sssooooooo inept that rebuilding this team on the fly is much, much better off in the hands of armchair GMs…

    Confusing isn’t it? Well, so are most of the BS ideas I see floating around here…

    I think it’s hilarous that people think stuckey is so great, seriously????? He can’t shoot, can’t make free throws when they count, can’t shoot threes, and isn’t even a real point guard, wow and you wanna trade Rip and Tay, man if they go I’m gonna go on strike being a pistons fan for a long time, but I do agree on Villa how ever you spell his name lol he’s garbage.

    Welcome back to the mid 90’s y’all…

    In this process of rebuilding we’ve done everything wrong…
    Starting with Chauncey trade/Stuckey promotion to be the leader of the new generation…
    CV addition killed us.

    But I still love the Pistons, and always will.
    Even though we suck so much and will do for quite some time….

    And if y’all think a trade will save us, better think again cause Rip & Tay are no longer desirable additions over the league and their game and contracts are nothing short of abysmal…

    And stop counting of this streak.. It’s depressing.
