Nothing like letting everyone know you’re headed to Russia with Love from a Twitter congrats. So much for his press release.

Can’t blame player for trying to get some work in and some money in their pockets while this lockout in place. I just always think of the risk of injury.

When will it be over?


  1. Tate

    hope he gains some muscle in the process.. Love the guy but hes gotta beef up a little bit

  2. daddy

    its good for him to get some real playing time in other leagues. hopefully it can build some confidence with him and maybe play some d, i mean you do play for detroit

  3. The Fluidics

    Hopefully he’ll play for a winner over there, get some pro level winning under his belt.

    this is great, don’t worry about injuries, those can happen here or there, just get some time in, if there’s a Piston that needs work, it’s Daye, he’s still 2 years away from being able to start, and if he misses a year, well, we might as well just get rid of him now. He needs the work bad. and um. . . Go Russia?
