    Perfect. That describes him perfectly. He loves to brag about himself.

    Just because he brags, it doesn't mean that it isn't true.

    When you step back and look at it, it's pretty amazing that he has accepted the entire trade with no hard feelings toward Joe D or Stuckey. Not only that, but he seems to genuinely want to see them do well and he'll go as far as giving Stuckey advice from a distance.

    This is what makes CB the mayor... and what made him a good leader for us. He genuinely cares about people around him... including himself.

    Maybe. Maybe not. How could we possibly know what he genuinely feels? I think that all these guys are so hyper-screened by the media machines that the only feelings we can feel reasonably confident are "genuine" are the negative ones that slip through (or are ushered through) the media filter.

    Chauncey is very good at saying the right things. I wouldn't go so far that what he says is always sincere or insightful.

    He's been traded enough times, he knows the drill. He got his title, he's an All-star and he's one of the elite players in the NBA and paid like it. No sense in burning bridges.

    I'll never forget what Dantley said when he was traded. He made veiled threats about how one day he would blow the whistle on everyone. He never did. But in the heat of the moment, boy was he ticked off.

    Because everybody in the league likes him. These guys are not good enough actors to pull off a fake sincerity act for that long (look at Shazam for example). He wasn't happy with the trade, but he understood why it was done. Once it happened, he dealt with it and didn't let it change the good relationships that he had built. I really think he looks up to Joe.

    This, to me, just begs the question: and how do we know that everybody in the league likes him? By the way, I'm not saying Chauncey is not genuinely a good guy. Just that my level of suspicion of the NBA-media complex is such that unless I knew someone personally (or knew someone, whom I trusted, who knew them personally), I'm agnostic as to what these guys are really like, or really feeling.

    You can tell by how many guys love coming up to him before and after games to talk. He always asks them about their families and has all of their kids, wives, girlfriends, and pets names memorized.

    No way do the Pistons lose this game. Enver hasn't won at the Palace in what... 13 years? It'll be 14 after tomorrow night. Book it. :smoke06:

    Nah, I don't think so. If that was the case, Chauncey would have never said after the game 6 loss at Cleveland in 2007 that the Pistons were still a better team, despite them getting outplayed in all 6 games.

    I do think he is sincere in most of the things he says...

    How about when he latches on to someone to blame for the teams latest failure?

    Melo was suspended by the Nuggets for an "in game transgression" so he won't play tomm. I can't figure out if that's good or bad. Tay usually handles him and if he's not in the game Nene will be a much bigger focus.

    Isn't Chauncey using his cerebral touch to teach Melo how to be an all-star?

    Usually organizations prefer to solve issuers behind closed doors.

    "public" punishment by club can only mean that incident was so serious that club was ready to announce "in our family something bad happened and we felt that private dealing was not enough".

    AND especially game vs pistons draws some bigger attention for known reasons as usual game and yet club was ready to punish their allstar player.

    pretty telling, huh?
