If I was on his back I would ride his behind straight to Dumars office and sign the darn contract. Enough of all this talk about what Ben shoulda, coulda, woulda done. It's time to crap or get off the pot. All of the apostosizing, rationalizing, contractualizing, unemploymentizing, headscratchizing, and who knows whatelsizing. Everyone has a Ben story, everyone has an opportunity to explore various scenario's i.e., I guess that's why Micro came up with the Pistonsforum so one could address these issues in a non-threatening environment unlike the Detnews. At some point you have to wonder when will folks stop personalizing the Ben issue. Basketball is a business, players come players go, There is no one person who is more important than the team. I have a real difficult time commisserating over one person. The Pistons are a team first, individuals second. Now if Ben starts depositing a check in my account on a monthly basis, then it would be a totally different story.
