    I initially read the part in parenthesis incorrectly.

    I just went safe and used test scores from the leg wall lift.

    Yeah, I knew you would call character "soft" when you were the inaugural member of the Darko Hall of Fame Club.

    I honestly love the history barbs that get exchanged here.

    I notice that Baynes is already nearly halfway to Darko's career field goal total. He's 30 years old, but if he keeps going at this pace, he will surpass him by the time he's 35.

    Also, he's only 850 rebounds, 250 assists, 150 steals, and 500 blocks behind him. While the assists, steals, and blocks are out of reach, he may also be able to catch him in rebounds by the time he retires.

    And speaking of early retirement, I need to hit the hay.

    No chance they could have won with KCP in for Rip. They never would have made the Finals in '04.

    The Pistons scored something like 75 ppg against the Pacers and Rip averaged something like 24 per. No way Mr. Shoot and Pray could do that.

    Besides Drummond, what do you like about the Pistons?

    IIRC, Ernie was a big Brian Cardinal fan.

    Rip was our leading scorer during the regular season and playoffs....and he was consistent from the floor and the FT line... no way I would put inconsistent KCP over him. KCP only looks good once a week when he hits 3 or more threes in the 4th quarter. He can go 2 -3 games without even getting to the FT line. Even his defense is suspect on some nights as he can't seem to play D and offense during the same game.

    Rip's TS% was .522 (.265 from deep) and KCP's is .531 (.373 from deep).

    KCP's defense would have taken that '04 team's defense to a best-ever level. KCP is also great on the break and there would have been more fast break opportunities with him on the floor.


    I like Rip and all, but he was a mid range guy and with Ben's lack of offense, that packed it in a little too much. Chauncey and KCP would have spread the floor better.

    Good argument, but then put Rip on today's team and we would have that every day scorer in the back court that we seem to missing a couple of times a week.

    We already have the worst defender in the league at PG. With Rip in, RJ would have to actually guard his man.

    Clearly I like Rip.......

    To be honest I was never a huge fan of his but I was impressed by that stat during his jersey retirement and I do remember him hitting some Y-U-G-E shots in that series. The thought of him telling Mike Curry that he wasn't worthy to criticize him always makes me laugh as welll.

    I like KCP as well. The only guy I dislike now really is Van Gundy and if he tightened his screws a quarter turn I'd like him too.
