    Are you joking? I think it's kind of cool that the coaches are watching Macklin's games online. Paying someone to duplicate work that is already being done seems silly.

    Maybe they could send Charlie down there to give real time tweets on Maklin's development.

    So in 7 games so far, Macklin is averaging 15 points and 16 boards.

    Fort Wayne has 5 other guys also averaging over 15 points per game.

    Now, 16 rebounds per game. That is nothing to sneeze about....

    If Vern was brought back up to the big leagues as a Piston, he'd instantly become the 2nd best...
    ...once again, nevermind.

    Send the Mad Ants any and all current Pistons who have ever played at UConn in exchange for some of those 15 ppg guys who are willing to play in the show for a per diem.

    The Show is back in shape and on the Pistons roster. He reveals his secret on how to average ~20 boards a game:

    OK, so my theory that Vern is sitting off to the side on an excersise bike smoking weed at practice is out the door.
    Why isn't this kid playing?

    Have I unknowingly been transported to a bizzaro world where bad play is rewarded with playing time? (cough, cough - Villanuwaiver)
