    Yes, it was. The point guard is the spark plug of the team. In a car, if the spark plug does not work, the system is fouled. Putting in a new spark plug does not immediately make the car run so great. It takes time to clear the system out. To fix what ailed the Pistons last night, simple, don't break it in the first place by playing Bynum, ever.

    To fix what ailed the Pistons last night, have a healthy roster and games that matter.

    I hope to see tons of Will Bynum this year.

    I got no problem with Bynum playing. If he can manage to playing winning basketball. I have never seen this yet from him, save a good game or two per season. That is way not enough for an older player to be on our squad.

    Billups was minus 6. Clearly he is not bringing us winning basketball or leadership since all our starting bigs were minus again. I would replace them all for Tony Mitchell. He was the only one positive and no one seems to give us winning baskteball atm..

    And i also think it's Bynum's fault that everyone (except him) is shooting around 30-35% from the floor. He needs to quit giving the ball to Josh Smith (5-13), Singler (2-7), KCP (1-7), Jerebko (3-11), Billups (3-9), etc. It's just poor judgement giving the ball to teammates who can't shoot.

    Quit hating, Menace. Billups was -6 because of Bynum.

    When I feel a little blue about challenges in my personal life, I just need to read about other people, guys who are millionaire NBA coaches for example, and I feel better about how my life is going.

    It's not very promising that Cheeks has stuff like this in his personal life, and even worse that he lets it become a matter for the police and the press.

    Looks like pressure situations are not his strength.
    Hope the woman is ok...

    She is OK thanks to Mo Cheeks. She might have left without being familiar with the area if he hadn't wisely stopped her.

    I just hope he doesn't prevent Stuckey from going out the door.

    If he would have put the dishes in the dishwasher, he wouldn't have had a problem.
