    Maybe we should have pointed him to the gardening thread instead?

    I hoped this might become a series. The People vs. Charlie V or the People vs. Walker D Russell etc.

    Maybe the Bacon thread scares away too many newbies.
    Still waiting for a luggage salesman to open up a thread.

    He just joined to promote his blog. So I copy pasted the article into the OP and removed his links.

    Fair turnabout because it is bad manners to sign up on another person's website, and promote yourself without at least showing the community the respect of making a few posts around the joint first.

    I agree. You may even want to remove the links from BDL's and Pass' replies to his original post.

    I think those 2 are in on the scam with Mr. Wilson.

    I think Dumars wasn't as good as he appeared during the good days and not as bad as he appears during the bad days. Hate to say it but there is an element of luck involved. I think I would make a change if the right person was interested. I love Jeff Van Gundy. I would first see if he would coach. And if not, I would consider him for the GM. In this scenario, put his bro in for coach. Obviously, I would also consider Phil Jackson as GM. I doubt seriously those two would be interested in coaching the Pistons but I think they could be lured to GM. I love their basketball intellect and I think they both have a lot to offer. But I can still live with Dumars if the right guy was not available. Dumars still understands what it takes to win, although I despise what Stern has done to the game. Unfortunately it's not the same game it was twenty years ago.

    Round, I don't remember CB breaking down at all. Sheed was breaking down. And though CB was the kindling for all many Pistons' fans wrath, I'm not sure he was.

    CB had a heavy body structure. As age set in, he needed an excellent backup (no, this was not Rodney) who not only should have set a different tempo, but would have structured a different offense that gave CB rest for the fourth quarter and worked to his strengths. He had coaches that dominated their outlook in winning the most games.

    Sheed was all mental. He just quite liking the game and floated about his disdain which just highlighted his own fourth circle of the three-ring circus.

    CB didn't start breaking down until his second year at Nuggs.
