    Ex-Pistons coaches:

    Why are they so tarnished after coaching with us (with the exception of Carlisle)? It seems like other teams have coaches that get immediately hired elsewhere when they are fired. Even their assistant coaches are regularly poached/ coveted.

    Our head coaches typically get fired and then either take on reclamation projects or start over at the bottom of the rung as towel boys.

    Will the pattern be broken?

    Will this guy become our Jerry Sloan/ Greg Popovich/ Phil Jackson? Vegas odds are about the same as the Lions 3-peating.

    Those pictures are classic, but it's true that you can find those pictures of every coach (successful or not), it just seems like JD has run through coaches like Imelda Marcos has run through shoes. I gotta say I loved JD as a player and GM (until recently) but if this coach Mo Cheeks doesn't cut it, it's over, his run is done. I can't believe the flops that BOTH CV and BG turned out to be the last time the Pistons blew their capspace. Now we are in a similar situation and it's pretty evident that the last time this happened those 2 signings hampered this franchise for years. Here is to hoping we can find a diamond in the rough in this years draft and get some luck. I have to say, I'd be intrigued if we could pull off a deal to bring in Thomas Robinson (from HOUSTON) for little more than a 2nd rounder if they are just trying to clear capspace to lure Dwight (although I think the Clippers want to lure him in with CP3).

    That's actually good for him if he's still distracted with his wife's situation.
