    I don't think people who dissed Josh watch much basketball games, they only stereotype him, just because he was the dunk champion in all star weekend during his rookie year.

    In that case we did get the "real" Josh Smith. The one from Atlanta. :cheerleader:

    It will be weird to have a guy wearing Pistons gear who can actually play offense AND defense.

    I'm not absolutely crazy about Josh Smith but I like him in that salary slot more than freaking Ben Gordon (essentially, this is a Gordon + 1st rounder for Smith trade).
    Watching T-Mitch and Smoove battle it out in practice would be pretty fun.

    Josh Smith just officially announced. He said the Pistons were the only team he was interested in. He said the team will be back in the playoffs this year. Joe D said he like his versatility..Smith could play the 3 with Monroe and Drummond...when one of those guys rests, Smith can move over to the 4. Smith can guard a 2, 3, or 4. He even guarded Kobe this past year. Overall, Smith sounded happy to be part of the team and perhaps be a leader for the young guys.

    I just watched Josh's intro press conference. I hardly recognized him without his head band. He seemed a little nervous, but handled himself well. He does have a very cute smile........

    Saw the press conference too.

    - He said "you know" a lot of times.
    - He seems confortable with the team he signed.
    - He seems to know where he is coming.
    - He is going to wear #6 jersey .. the last one who wore it was Ben Wallace, right?
    - Joe needs to start doing something about his weight..

    Good press conference.

    I can't wait to see our 3 bigs on the floor at once. If this coach goes small, I may jump out a window.

    Amen. Small ball is for 1st round playoff losers.

    Gotta make the other team scramble to match up with us.

    I just watched the press conference and I'm fired up. Definitely like the idea that he is coming to Detroit because he isn't satisfied with getting to the 2nd round only. He clearly likes a gritty style and he wants to work for an org that he knows won't be satisfied with anything other than a ship. With Drummond being a bit of a goofy kid, I also like that we're getting another serious big man to harden him a bit. Smith seems like he's ready to lead/ mentor.

    Haven't been this excited about a season in a long while.

    Me too, me too...

    If Siva get's in the roster, and even with no further changes, we'll have 5 new guys in the team.
    1 new coach (well, that's not a new feeling for us lately)
    1 of our (the fans) idols of always, Rasheed, back with the staff.
