    I almost said it before this game, but now I gotta say it. Reggie is MAYBE starting to come along. I thought he was more effective at penetrating the last three games. Obviously he was last night.

    I love KCP but i am worried we can't afford him, at least not afford him and also have a good team. Pistons can't pay every guy that is more effective than Andre the same as they pay Andre.

    Well sure it's easy to say Pay That Man to both KCP and Baynes, that doesn't they both CAN actually be paid.

    Great question. I am still confused.

    The intentional away-from-the-ball foul in the last 2 minutes used to only apply to the 4th quarter and overtime, but they made a rule change last summer to apply it to the last 2 minutes of every period.

    Andre was tackled away from the ball with 1:50 left in the 3rd and they called it a common foul. I don't get it.

    George and Greg didn't explain or question it during the telecast.

    In 2 years, Andre will make $25 million and Boban will make $9 million. We can't tie up over a 1/3 of the entire team salary with the center position alone....especially if one of the guys will be sitting out most games.

    Both of those guys are over the hill now. I am pretty sure that Mason has to give them shocks during the game to keep the awake.

    I think we should have paid Andre $50M a year. He's worth it. THINK OF THE REBOUNDS!

    I was so excited that he finally took a "dive" on an international foul. I would do that every time. George and Greg - it seems like he aged 50 years since last season with some of his ramblings - were thinking it was a flagrant.

    Drummond should run towards their best player to make them foul. Worst case it would give them time to get a shot up too.

    AND THE BABY HOOKS!

    UNSTOPPABLE BABY HOOKS.

    AND THE 30 POINT GAMES FUELED BY REBOUNDS AND BABY HOOKS!

    How many 30 point games has Dre had this year? I've lost count TBH.

    FIFTY MILLION PER YEAR!

    I don't know who Dre's agent is, but whoever he is, I do a better job of selling Dre than he does.

    Dre, HMU. We can do business.

    Robin Lopez is an American, so I don't believe it was an international foul.

    He will improve on those lists when the team wins more games.

    I know you like KCP.

    SG's are not really that easy to come by. It is probably the shallowest position in the NBA right now. Starting quality, 35MPG, high quality defenders who can do more than just spot up on offense at the SG position are extremely hard to come by.

    Centres who can play reasonable defense and set good screens are not exactly rare.

    I like Baynes but he is far easier to replace than KCP, or at least his replacement is likely to be close to him in overall production/value to the team.

    Baynes will get paid. I doubt it will be with us.

    Why is everyone so certain that Baynsey is opting out? He's an oaf-Ish big guy. You could easily replace him with one of the lesser Plumlee or Zeller brothers.

    He's not going to get a Jon Leuer deal. There's only one guy in the L who would give Leuer a 4 year gig. I bet they signed that thing quickly.

    Well if not 40/4, Baynes should ask for 25/3 at the very least

    To give an example of how difficult quality centers are to come by, note that Alan Williams of the Suns is an undrafted FA who has put up 5 double doubles in his last 6 games while Tyson Chandler rides the pine.

    By that logic, Damien Jones (6 mpg 1.4 ppg, 1.4 rpg) should qualify as more quality of a center because he plays for Golden State

    Dear friend, you didn't answer the question.

    How many of those double double games did they win?

    Don't make me tell Mitch Richmond and Jerry Stackhouse stories.
