    Am I the only one who is really interested in how much damage can Faried do to us? (I bet I am.. )

    Kenny Faried is a heckuva player and gives fans their money's worth.

    I'm excited to see Faired. He's Dennis Rodman's favorite player.

    Really? I didn't know.

    He is like a better (and 2 inches taller) version of Jason Maxiell. With more fit and less fat.

    I tried to find an article about it, but it was near impossible using Google search. It seems that no one has ever written a story about Kenneth Faried without mentioning Rodman.

    Anyway, I remember reading a few things a few years ago about Rodman attending games and calling up Faried. I'm not sure if he's really Rodman's favorite player, but I do know he was interested in him in college.

    Could Newark's Kenneth Faried Be the Next Rodman? - WSJ.com

    Everything I've read about him mentions his work ethic, humility, and positive attitude. Sounds like Piston's DNA. Maybe Joe should have tried to get a little more for Aflallo than he did, and Denver would have owed us one on the Faried pick.

    This makes for a good math exercise on inequalities:
    Let N = the number of points that the Nuggets score
    Let P = the number of points that the Pistons score

    Given by Panda:
    N - P < 10
    N + P < 195

    Solve the first inequality for N:
    N < P + 10

    Substitute this inequality into the second inequality and solve for P:
    (P + 10) + P < 195
    2P + 10 < 195
    2P < 185
    P < 92.5
    Conclusion: The Pistons will score less than 92 points.

    Using the revised first inequality, solve for N:
    N < P + 10
    N < 92.5 + 10
    N < 102.5
    Conclusion: The Nuggets will score less than 102 pionts.

    Or the final score could be 7-2.

    N-P approaches zero for sufficiently small values of 10.

    I'm not sure there are large and small values for 10.

    Cute puppies.

    I could say this game was over at the end of the first quarter, but there are still three quarters left and anything can happen. Any way, end of one quarter, Nuggets 40, Pistons 18.
