    Drummond could not wear a wedding dress like Dennis.

    I do notice that all the guys getting ripped off on the HOF odds are former Pistons...

    Ran across this on fantasy today. Rotoworld is recommended we pick up Alex Len because of his easy matchup against Drummond on Sunday...

    Dre fans are going to burn down the Rotoworld offices.

    I don't get around other league inputs, but does Dre really have that many fans (outside of Detroit)?

    I don't know. I was referring to the local Dre fans like @BillLaimbeer@BillLaimbeer @Ernie the Slow Adult@Ernie the Slow Adult and @TaS@TaS

    Just do the opposite of what they say and you should be good.

    I think he currently have more fans outside Detroit. Go to a random Pistons forum outside this one and the fans want him gone.

    I can't imagine fraternizing with Pistons fans. Bleech!

    Those are Pistons "forums"

    We all know that there is only one real pistons forum. Everything else is an attempt at a forum.

    It is interesting he didn't mention Drummond's defense. The numbers say his defense is pretty good. Watching games, though, the eye test shows Drummond to be slow on rotations, allowing uncontested perimeter shots, not communicating effectively on screens, etc.

    Last year, he was playing like a serviceable big while getting paid rookie money
    This year, he's playing like a serviceable big while getting paid max money.

    The player hasn't changed. The expectations have. The Pistons gambled. It hasn't paid off.

    Caputo is better known as a Lion's commentator. Silvertongue wrote for the Oakland Press before the Pistons hired him to do internal messaging.

    The Oakland Press is a small outfit, but they have long been the last and best bastion of Detroit Sports Journalism with a capital "J".

    As I showed yesterday, he does shoot close to 60% "down the stretch" in games vs 25% for Baynes... but is usually replaced by Baynes in that magical part of the game where we really need to get the W (and who can argue with the results?). He also leads the league in rebounding, Defensive rating, post/paint scoring, and his team in steals.

    At his age, this sounds more like a franchise player than a troubled or servicable big man.

    But the grass is always greener.

    For the record, I'm not advocating getting rid of Drummond. He can be a crucial part of a winning team. He is a big who needs a great PG though. Reggie ain't it.

    I hope we send away Reggie for a lottery pick, and then package that with Leuer and/or Morris for a proven PG.

    Here is a list of the NBA players with the highest blocks + steals:
    1. Giannis Antecantaspellit
    2. Anthony Davis
    3. Draymond Green
    4. Rudy Gobert
    5. Myles Turner
    6. Andre Drummond
    7. Hassan Whiteside
    8. Robert Covington (seriously)
    9. John Wall
    10. DeMarcus Cousins
    11. DeAndre Jordan
    12. Kristaps Porzingis...
    Dre gets his more with steals than blocks.

    When a center blocks a shot, his team gets possession of the ball about 58% of the time. So, 42% of the time, it's the equivalent of nothing (except intimidation value). When a steal happens, the defensive team gets full value for it.

    Here is some discussion on the relative values:
