    You could say the same thing about Gores. SVG is the big dog when it comes to basketball, but he makes no significant moves without Gores blessing.

    I agree. In my opinion Gores is a fine guy. But how much does he know about basketball?

    In order for this franchise to go forward, he has to listen to the other guys, such as SVG's brother or Bill Laimbeer or Wallace & Wallace for example.

    Butler is under contract for a couple of more years. I don't see why they would want to move him.

    Would you trade Andre Drummond for him?

    I'd trade him for Josh Smith's term out.

    Teams are already unloading overpaid contracts and lebron to lal or at the western conference is wishful thinking - he has no desire to meet either spurs or gsw at the semis ( both overall and conference) . On the other hand - at the finals ( via eastern conf ) - anything can happen as proved at the previous season.

    There are days when I would trade Dre for a bag of pretzels, but no, Russell is a bigger bum than Dre.

    That's Dre's future if he doesn't get his act together now. A new team every season or two as he's traded around.

    I wonder if D-Ho regrets how things went down in ORL.

    His numbers look pretty good. As a 20-year-old point guard, he averaged 15.6 pts, 4.8 ast, 3.5 reb, 1.4 stl, 35.2% 3pt in 28 minutes.

    I would have popped the champagne if we would have traded Reggie for Russell and a salary filler.

    All this stuff goes on, the trades, the rumors, and it's like the Pistons aren't even in the L.

    They traded down in the draft to get rid of DHo. That's gotta hurt. That and being replaced by one of the many Plumlee brothers.

    Next year - Lonzo/George/Lopez.

    That is not a bad core on paper.
