    A long pathway and much traveled. You think randomness. I think causation. Both different. Something to think about.

    Deep in my heart, I would say Joe doesn't need that show.

    That's the best part of Joe that I love.

    Is this not fairly land?
    JD will be encapsulated into a role with an appropriate title; usually ending in "adviser or consultant" services.
    The gift turns itself into an obligation for reciprocal obligations or the appreciation there of: this means...hold on loosely (corporate), but don't let go.
    This continues the mythology of the holy fog.

    I actually like this list! Normally it's filled with guys like ML Carr.

    Is Gerrson Rosas Daryll Morey's right Hans man by chance?

    I wonder how this season could have turned out had the Pistons hired that Russian guy who was excited to work with a computer to possibly gain an advantage as the coach instead of Mo Cheecks as it was rumored?

    Joe should say he's quitting because Mo Cheecks got fired.

    Looks like Joe will stick around atleast during the transition period but in another role:

    I don't see why Dumars would want to hang around as an "adviser" after he just got fired.

    Maybe he wants to stay in Michigan and take a break from the criticism for a bit.

    This gift makes no sense. He would better serve the NBA by sharing his gifts elsewhere.
    I would like to see the holy fog blown out to sea. LA has a harbor in need of fog.

    All these guys are workaholics. Joe needs to sit around in an office and advise players, scout and have fun.
    Damnit, all this means is he will continue to block Zeke and Beer !
    I bet he made a pact with Mr. Davidson to never let them back in the building.

    If he continues to block Zeke and Beer he will be doing a real positive thing for the Pistons.
    We don't need those retreads back.
    Great players make poor executives!!
    The best coaches have been guys like: Auerbach, Daly, Brown, Popovich, Jackson, etc.
    I want some young hotshot we've never heard of who will bust up this dysfunctional group, put a stop to the
    play-ground, me-first basketball, and start playing team-oriented basketball.

    If the Pistons want to stop playing playground basketball then they should stop assembling their team like a playground team.

    Thanks for the article BL. This stood out for me:

    Never looked at it that way.

    excellent article, except for the red background and the remark on John Henson. Henson is quite a decent player, after all. Just needs to stay healthy.

    The three key points of the article on Dumars:
    • Failed pursuit of superstars
    • Repeated unwillingness to challenge players
    • A lack of long-term planning

    Winning 50 games with Curry, Ben Wallace, and Cliffy should have caused Joe Dumars to always value defense over offense for the rest of his life.
