    Too bad Kenny didn't go on to add: "Coach said that the notable exceptions to this rule are Charlie and Stuckey. He said that those two guys can wear whatever gear they want as long as it doesn't say 'Pistons' on it."

    I wonder if it's OK to wear stuff that says Platinum Equity on it?

    Mo Cheeks might have some work to do to get in line with the firms progressive dress policy and corporate culture.

    I think we wait and see who we draft first. KG + Rivers is just a bad deal if you are giving much up to get it. If they got Pierce as well it would probably be a lot better and would make the Clips very strong.

    Bledsoe is a great player but I don't know how much I would be willing to give up for him.

    on popular demand there will be lockerrooms at the entrance of Pistons facilities: there people can quickly dress and undress : nobody in their sane mind want publicly to be assiocated with 20% winning team.

    Over the past 10 days, I wore a Detroit Pistons shirt and/or sweatshirt at least 7 days. HA!

    I am also certifiably insane, so there's that.

    This is good. Always bring on board those that will cover your weakness. It is also important that loyalty and positional personality have a forward movement of mix. After a few years with OK, he should have experienced the bureaucratic reach that specialization brings to-the-table. It is not his natural role, however, he does seem (on a personal level), that his personality projection has a certain bias for the Good-Will-Hunting idealistic groups. No matter: we now have a take-hold signature that always tantalizes the past history of right moments, at the right historic times. This may beg the question: can the reality of actually knowing the words of the National Anthem, co-inside with flip-flops?

    That's actually a good skill to have when you're not providing entertainment value.

    I will translate his post for you:

    "Smith should complement Cheeks. I like the move."

    [I was playing off your "funny" story in which you said "I guess" to your wacky math teacher in case you didn't make the connection.]

    Oh, I made the connection and it was a good take-off. Most don't understand, that once they can get by my different approach (multiple directions and associations along the way); I calm down and get directional (understandable). But I rarely ever lead that way. It's very boring: just like your (correct) interpretation of my comment. Now, if you would have added an association pattern of thought, at the end, by quoting Machiavelli...many would taken that with them. How else do we all learn? Unless, you have an original thought.

    A last thing about my math teacher. He wasn't wacky, and he was far removed from that. He was a brilliant mathematician, but a poor teacher. I reminded him of that (I guess).
