    I came on this morning and saw 40 guests online here and we're not discussing the NBA much these days. As a matter of fact, one thread is really for the birds...Darth...you know I'm just teasing, I'm not a hater...:)

    So I wanted to open a new thread which features some of our favorite NBA highlights of the past...I'll go first

    Things will pick up here in a couple of weeks. These are the dogs days of summer, and there is no ball to talk about yet.

    Dennis Rodman was just inducted to the Hall and we got nothing.

    I haven't even had time to stop by in a few days and I'm the guy that once responded, "Well you got to learn to overcome adversity.", when the lactation specialist came in to speak to my wife and said she was having difficulty concentrating because I was watching the Pistons v Bulls in the '07 playoffs the day after my son was born.

    Was I the first person in the history of the hospital to watch TV in the room?

    I noticed it on NBA.com yesterday.

    I think the amount of discussion here is hammers home the fact that the lockout is bad for basketball fans.

    That and our few advertisers fleeing the ship.

    We're still here, and I am still dedicated to revamping the board. It will come around.

    Rodman in the Hall of Fame!

    Here's one of my favorite basketball moments. No Free Chili for Michael Jordan:

    The hockey fans are missing also.

    Where's Bezeach? Super?

    Like the poor, the only one we have here always, is Darth.

    Jammer is the only one left in Windsor, Canada. Roscoe fled west to Kamloops (that still sounds like a suburb of Battle Creek), and has effectively left the country.

    Let's face it, PF has gone international.

    Have a nice day!

    Darth is like one of the regulars at "Cheers". Kinda quirky...but I'd miss him if he weren't here...

    The HOF ceremony was great...Arvydas Sarbonis gave the shortest acceptance speech in history at 47 seconds, Tex Winter's son gave his acceptance speech and stayed on to long babbling about it and embarrassed him.

    Rodman came out with a flamboyant outfit and was so over come with emotion, he could not talk for the first 3-4 mins, looking to Phil Jackson for support. His jacket was embroidered with Pistons and Bulls and he had #10 on one shoulder and #91 on the other. He said "with no disrespect Isaiah and Joe, ....Jordan and Pippen were the two greatest players he played with" and I think he may have said "that they were greatest one-two combo the NBA has ever seen."

    he admitted that he was not a good husband or father, but may have taken the cake by embarrassing his mother who was sitting in the audience. Said she never hug him or his sibling as a child. Also said that his dad fathered 47 kids???:sssh:

    in other news:
    The Tulsa Shock have lost a WNBA record 17 straight games and are 1-22 for the season...should have stayed in Motown where Mahorn could have had them competing as Pierson, Smith and Tweety would have stayed with the team.

    Also, Jason Maxiel's wife posted pictures on Facebook today showing him and her and she is five months pregnant. Yep it's a slow summer....

    Normally we would be in the middle of an active FA period, have wrapped up the summer league and would only be a month away from camp opening.

    Been tough - esp for a Piston fan since this would have been a summer we were actually allowed to make trades and stuff.

    No doubt. I don't know what to do without the NBA and Pistons basketball. I think I might become a football fan. I've always liked football, but never had the time to really obsess over two sports. Are you listening, Stern? I'm going to start following football. I'm serious...

    This goes for me too. Since mosts of the NBA blogs in my reader are dead I've added a bunch of NFL blogs and my interest is rising for every post I read. Now I even know the name of some players who doesn't throw the ball or earn over $10M/y and cool terms like "west coast offense"!

    I just read a couple of articles about Suh, Megatron, and Stafford. I'm starting to get excited. I may go to a Seahawks preseason game this weekend.


    My understanding of West Coast Offense is: Throw the ball to a double or triple covered Johnny Morton, even though Herman Moore is wide-open and has the first down.

    I think that might be a little dated though. It also may show my old bias for Herman Moore. I loved that guy. Just like Bobby Ross, I quit on the Lions out of frustration mid-season. I didn't go to the Chargers though, I just stopped watching football altogether.

    The conventional offenses that were run years ago had teams establishing the run which would bring in defensive backs towards the line of scrimmage to help tackle. This would open up passing lanes and allow teams to pass more...later in the game.

    The west coast offense uses a short passing game to bring in safties to help cover backs out of the backfield catching passes and WRs who initially run short routes. Eventually...this opens up the passing game and also the running game.

    The Lions ran the Great Lakes offense...where 3 second drop back passes would open up running lanes for Barry who would regularly make running plays of 50 yards or more...

    This lull in NBA news is actually working for me. I get to spend more time with my kids. Apparently I had two of them.
