    I am intrigued by your conspiracy theory.
    I bet he also shot JFK, faked the moon landing, and posed for a blurry sasquatch photo.

    Yeah?
    I've gone to bed a little over 14,900 times in my lifetime and have never injured myself in my sleep.

    (This includes a lot of sketchy couches/floors that I've slept on while on road trips as well as that one time that I slept on the roof of a van in Santa Cruz California.)

    I'm thinking that Charlie was the one who came up with the "injured while asleep" idea.

    And soon you'll claim he's involved in Roswell, The Philadelphia Experiment, HAARP and The Ben Gordon Signing. This guy just can't catch a break, no matter how hard he works out during offseason.

    There have been quite a few Piston players over the years that have deserved a break.
    Bucket of Turd is not one of these guys.

    He hasn't been much more than a team mascot.

    At KFC.......a "Bucket" is something special.

    This bucket is not........send him on his way.

    He actually posed for the Loch Ness monster photo.

    Was that the actual line they used to describe the cause of the injury?! I thought that was just a thing being thrown around on this forum.

    I also question the injury though. I remember reading during the season that they did scans on it and could see nothing wrong! I figured he was faking the injury as he wasn't going to get played anyway and it was better for his career to sit injured than DNP-Coach's Decision.

    This is my theory. Not much of a conspiracy here, just a little PR move that benefits all parties involved.
    It's easier to sell BoT as an injured player than a player who just sucks.
    At least with an injury, he can go get checked out by a team doctor and be deemed fit to play.

    I think the forum would have made up a much, much better excuse. I agree with the Charlie Made It Up Himself theory. Because really, if anyone in the organization fabricated that excuse, then they would have amnestied him by now. Talk about throwing a guy under the bus.

    Oh I don't doubt for a minute that the "sleep induced ankle injury" came straight from Bucket of Turd.
    I also don't doubt that the Larry Frank and some other folks on the Pistons payroll are totally cool with the fact that Charlie was injured last year.

    I imagine the conversation going something like this:
    BoT: "Hey guys, the ankle is feeling much better. I think I'm ready to get back into it man!"

    Pistons' front office dude: "You sure Charlie? Dude, you should take a few more weeks or even a month or two just to make sure that thing is healed."

    I can't really think of another NBA player who talks about the sauna as much as Chuckles does.
