    I can't believe I'm going to miss the revenge tour chat! I hope someone posts to the game thread with a game report. I am coaching at an all-day all-eve diving/swimming meet with my high school girls. I sure hate to miss any Pistons game and Pistons chat.:( Boo Hiss. Go Pistons!

    I don't know who caught this, but they are now calling Maxiell the Barhma Bull, which as far as I know was originated by linwood, Mercury or someone else on the board.

    From the boxscore it looks like I was wrong about JMax, I hope he keeps proving me wrong.

    My Grades

    Rip, B-
    Bad handles, active but not particularly sharp

    Chauncey, A
    Solid, not flashy

    Tayshaun, B
    Learning to coast like a true veteran...

    Sheed, C+
    Stupid tech, setting a bad example for the kids. KG was average and looked 2 or 3x better than Rasheed.

    Nazr, B+
    Hustle, effort. Had few plays run for him, and had zero rebounds in the first half. Hit a nice rolling hook while cutting through the lane.

    _________________________________________

    Delfino, B+
    Good energy, hustle. Great passer. Not particularly outstanding tonight.

    Flip Murray, A
    Really aggressive outing, had the play of the night, a crossover dribble drive with a slam. His attacking style compliments Delfino in transition. Some passes were a little scary.

    Lindsey Hunter, B
    Does just enough to earn more playing time. Hit some jumpers and keyed several transition scoring opportunities. If he could feed the post, Maxiell would have had 20+.

    Antonio McDyess, C+
    Too many ticky tack fouls, lousy tech arguing a call (he was right however), starting to get more involved in transition.

    Jason Maxiell, A-
    His only weakness was FT shooting. He was ultra powerful, suprisingly quick, ran almost every fastbreak as a trailer. Low rebounding #s are a team wide phenomenon, and certainly not worth punishing an undersized PF over IMO.

    Ronald Dupree, F
    Saw limited time at the end of the first and second halves. His lack of a jumper and tendency to overdribble is why he cannot get on the court. In years past the 15th man could be a hustle guy, but with this team playing hoping to play deep this year, Ron's simply too one dimensional to fill at 13 while Amir Johnson and Will Blalock go to basketball school.

    Good outing for the coaching staff to evaluate. The Wolves suck, and one of their starters would have a hard time making the Pistons as a reserve.

    Note: Terry Porter was glued to Flip's right hip, very animated on the bench and involved during timeouts.

    I graded players totally on my observations, biases and certainly on a sliding scale based upon what I have seen from them thus far. Flip Murray's "A" would have been a Rip Hamilton B+.

    I didn't see the game since I don't live in Canada (wtf?), but judging by the box score, Delfino didn't do much. 24 minutes, 1 for 6, 0 assists? That sounds more like a C- for a guard. 2 offensive boards... I'll assume those were his own shots.

    Sheed was 5-8 with 2 treys! And JMax looks like he wants to join the party this year. Flip Murray had a great game except for the 5 turnovers (probably due to general sloppiness of the game). And Nazr was solid again.

    This is a very interesting start to the season. If Nazr, Flip, JMax, and Delfino are for real, then I am sold on this year's chances.

    Delfino played excellent defense and enables Flip and Hunter when he is on the floor.

    The stuff that you don't get in the box.

    It's all about Flip Sr's ability to judge players based on intangible contributions for Carlos.
