    Okay, now that I have your attention.

    Assuming that we don't sign anyone else, what happens if Tayshaun goes down during the season?

    (and no, I don't want to turn this into a love/hate Delfino thread)

    OMG Superstarov! That was so upsetting. All manner of horrible things went through my head. It's the offseason after all, it might not even have been a basketball injury. You've got to change the name of that thread man. All the bad news recently has got me afraid to log on anymore. :fear:

    Regarding your question, can't Maxiell play at the 3? He's the one bench guy I'd like to see get some major minutes this year. But of course I would prefer Tay to be healthy and have the best season of his career. And yeah, Delfino can play the 3 too, right?

    Re: Tayshaun Prince Injured!

    Wow, I think I just lost a couple of years off my life! Don't do that! :laugh:

    Well, if you were to ask Joe D. this question, he'd probably say that if any of the starting 5... er... starting 4, gets injured, the season is over and we should just stop playing.

    Since thats basically what he said last season about CB when he was asked about adding depth at PG.

    Yeah, freaking great answer Joe.

    "Depth? We don't need no stinking depth. We've got the best starting 5...er... starting 4 in the league. What? CB just opted out of his deal and signed with the Bulls? Well, we'll be fine. We've still got the best starting 4... er... 3 in the league."

    Re: Tayshaun Prince Injured!

    If Prince goes down, you replace him with _____.

    a) Delfino. We still don't know what we have with this guy.
    b) Maxiell. This certainly would make for a strong interior.
    c) Amir. Nothing like throwing the baby to the wolves.
    d) Flip. The 3-guard combo is quite popular in the "new NBA".
    e) ____. Any other ideas?

    Inside joke. SStarov is a UM slappy and the MSU guys constantly rib him.

    I fixed the thread title kinda.

    Thanx, I saw the UM reference. I panicked when I saw the title. Not a good joke after the Murray signing.

    The pistons HAVE to play Delfino before this happens so they can either lethim fill the spot or trade him. My gues would be D with starters logging heavy minutes.

    Prince, CB, Rip, Sheed, Mohammed, et al - it really doesn't matter does it which one might go down with an injury? Dice is the closest the team has to a step in and play guy. Then DD, Delfino...

    Wait, I see the secret plan... Our forward thinking owner wants to be able to call the bench the fighting Ds and he's working on getting an all D bench. I bet he's really annoyed about Delk. Course, Flip is only two letters away.

    But "F" is such an appropriate letter to associate with Flip.

    In fact, make it a double "F". Houston had the twin towers, but Detroit has the "Twin Flippers."

    I didn't think you guys would freak like that. Sorry.

    I was just thinking that out of all of our guys, Tayshaun, and the 3 in general, is where we're the thinnest.

    JMax could maybe play the 3 some, but I think quicker guys would eat him up. Plus he still hasn't really established himself.

    They say Delfino can play the 1,2,&3, but he prefers the 2, and it has yet to be seen if he'll really produce.

    Amir would be a nice move, but they say he needs to really work on his shot. Again, another question mark.

    If you look at us, especially now, we have a guy who has at least played for other teams as a back-up to every other position. But the 3... all unprovens.

    That's why I think if something happens to Tay it will hurt us more than any other injury. That is unless someone steps it up.

    If Tay gets injured it's over.

    When I read the post headline, I almost had a heart attack and an accident in my pants at the same time! (if that's possible???)
    And if Tayshaun Prince does get hurt before the season starts-i'm blaming it on you :P

    If Tayshaun gets hurt before the season starts we can all just blame it on Flip (the Coach), it's fun to blame stuff on that guy, he's an easy target.:eyebrows:

    I think the surprise playoff meltdown has left everyone a little jumpy. So just be careful about what you post--you might encourage some deranged individual to start posting utter nonsense just to freak everybody out. You know, stuff like "Joe is letting Ben walk and signing Nazr Mohammed and Flip Murray."
