    Georgetown verses Texas last night. Otto Porter scored 14 points on 7-14 shooting, grabbed 8 rebounds, had 3 steals and 3 blocks.

    I hope we don't obtain any more players that can't shoot, especially "shooting guards" that can't shoot.

    Keep an eye on Ben Mclemore. I saw him play against Oregon St.. He's got himself a silky jumper and is an effortless athlete. This draft may not have a clear, #1, "It" guy, but the lottery looks DEEP.

    The Pistons are now tied with the Wizards in the loss column at 13. Only two teams have more losses (14). Perhaps having a deep lottery won't help Detroit.

    I feel confident the Pistons van play their way to an 8-10 pick.

    The first test should be to make sure that the player fits Stuckey's needs. Stuckey likes to drive straight toward the bucket. So we need great pick setters and Ray Allen/ Reggie Miller type 3-point shooters to give him room to operate.

    This team definitely needs perimeter shooters. All things being equal, we should take the guy with the better stroke.

    Does Shabazz look a little chubby to anyone?

    Isn't this every young boy's dream? Work hard and grow up to become a great long range shooter, make it to the NBA, and then be reduced to being a lane clearer for the perennial freight train.

    I totally agree.
    The emphasis needs to be on finding more ways to accomodate Rodney Stuckey and putting him in a position to succeed.

    Perhaps Dumars need to first extend Stuckey to a max contract before any other moves are made. Remember what the organization was preaching in the preseason...."building the foundation, brick by brick." Can't think of a better player to be the cornerstone of that message moving forward.

    Even though he's a free agent and not even under contract with a team right now, I think Joe could manage to swing an Iverson for Brandon Knight deal to pave the way for the Collider.

    We just need to find a team willing to sign AI to a 1yr/$20 million dollar deal and then trade him to Detroit.
