    Seems like one of those guys could take over after the ceremony for the '89 Pistons is over.

    George David, the man so nice, they named him twice, started out as a gofer with the Pistons iirc. I don't know if he's got any basketball experience outside the Pistons trainwreck of the last 6 or so years.

    Maybe they're planning a surprise where Mrs. D and her kids come back and fire him.

    Or at the end of the ceremony, they fire Joe and give the fans in attendance a choice of Laimbeer or Zeke and whoever gets the largest cheers is the new GM?

    Why couldn't the Pistons have had the analytics people (provided they have any) make their picks and then ask Joe and Mo if they thought any of them could play?

    They should have definitely taken the car keys away from him and this would have allowed him to save face.

    Joe doesn't get caught up in the legal mumbo jumbo.

    Someone temporarily removed me from a position the other day. When I told them not to reinstate me, they said "I accept your resignation".

    I really wasn't sure of the protocol there either.

    Here is a look at the Pistons analytics team. This was taken last week when Joe was on the phone with the help desk trying to get his computer to turn on.

    2 phones, 3 coffee mugs. This overlapping on the roster is starting to make sense.

    Also noticed that he had the Charlie villanueva equivalent of a monitor. Bulky and not even active.

    David is a cap man and a video fellow that has touched his toe into a number of primordial soups.

    I am betting the next GM is a "analytic type" with a large hesitancy toward a law degree.

    David might be lucky and fit just the right niche that one must build as a rightful commodity-type.

    Then again, we had Lawrence that fit both profiles and just intimated the hell out of fellows like Kidd and historically, JD. The latter needed a procedural balance as a formal recognition: hence the "master degree" association with Curry.

    If the above association with the GM is partially right, then Gores (remember him) will tail-gait the current methodology of solid GM (analytics, procedural systems, etc.) with a charismatic coach: think Daly and Brown.

    But, of course, we are now thinking generational gaps. And, as well we should. Still, some basics would and should act as a primer base coat.
    • NBA player
    • Time frame: institutional representative (administration), former head coach, assistant coach, ownership heritage and a commodity exchange orientation (the Phil's of this world).
    • Charisma: a determination. Never out of the ordinary (as a rather sub-standard introduction); a theological deepness; a representative yearning and concern for character growth. What is comprehended as the final growth product?
    • The comprehension beyond results and the past action about certain explanations that have a nebulous component called trust. And, in the end, it is all about details. One needs to have walked the long plank and the understanding of mountain top/valley.
    My pick: Robert Pack

    Why was Steve Kerr never mentioned as a candidate for the Pistons coaching position?
