    I was being facetious. I want a smart guy also and a front office staff.

    Rodman's outfits would go with Gores' if they sat together in the stands.

    He'd have inroads into the lucrative North Korean market also. The Pistons could play exhibitions or even open the season over there!

    If the worm can so deftly handle complex foreign policy, just think how easy the pistons would be for him to transform.

    TaS is getting it. Plus, maybe Gores will like the bands he can get for halftime.

    Better off with a MBA degree and some Wall Street resume in addition.

    Don't think anyone else had a shot - it was Phoenix for him all the way. Which got me wondering about John Stockton. No idea what he has been doing since retirement so I looked it up. Sounds like he is happy where he is, but maybe in the future? Sloan as GM and Stockton as coach...

    Hard to lead from the bench. Although he could organize the offense, since clearly Will Bynum is not doing it when he is sitting on the bench.

    Duly noted.

    If I could get the courage to start a new thread and somehow understand why the simplicity of a UI can not help me, then perhaps we could join a post on who might become the next Piston GM.

    This of course, means that a definitive decision has been made by Gores in reference to JD. Careful here now, because the person now under the hot seat does not carry a myth and Gores might actually (per his DNA corporate adventures in hegemony) become the biggest jester (Neocon napkin) of all.

    We're not even sure he's a great coach, much less a gm. Managing egos of the best players in history is different than managing salary cap and making trades. He might be good, but it's a mystery.

    It's the most expensive mistake an owner could make if it goes badly. Not only do you pay them, but you get stuck with charlie v, ben gordon, and an empty arena for years.

    He's old and he has a bad hip. He might break down physically like Larry Brown.
