    Lawrence Frank / Jason Kidd at it again: Nets intentionally fouling down 28... but only down 1 in the quarter, trying to salvage that standings point.

    Recapping the OKC game:

    - The Pontiff looked good. Hit some shots, threw down a few dunks. Played good D.

    - Tony Mitchell can still jump high.

    - Drummond was sloppy and seems to go through the motions against inferior OSL competition. He's still the best player on the floor but I don't think playing these garbage time games is helping him.

    - Siva can pass, shot better but still didn't shoot well.

    -Kenny seems to be pressing.

    - OKC seems to be all-good as far as their backup for Russ Westbrook goes. Reggie Jackson (Mr. July) went crazy on the likes of Lucious, Kenny & Pey-Siva. When a guy gets in a serious "zone" like that, there isn't much you can do. If that's a reg season game, I would hope that one of our guys would put him on his butt and cool him off with some hard fouls.

    - Kendall Gill shouldn't be in broadcasting.

    - I hope that Joe can swing some sort of 2-for-1 deal to get rid of Bucket and Stucket.
    Right now, I'm thinking that Kenny English is the odd-man-out of that 15th roster spot. I really want his attitude and toughness on the team. ...Even in street clothes.

    After watching that video of Kenny English singing, I kind of want him to stay around now.....

    If his roster spot depended on his singing ability, he would be gone. Plus, since he "cheated" on the lyrics by using his phone is strike two.

    But, the fact that he actually went up there and sang that entire song was VERY, VERY COOL in my book. The entire Pistons team was thoroughly entertained.

    If you haven't watched the video yet, please go back a page and watch it now. If you do not find 100% entertaining, I will give you your money back.

    Gotta keep in mind that after a year of being the youngest player in the league, Drummond is, amazingly, still the youngest player in the summer league.

    I really like Kendall gill calling games. I really love how he bridges several eras...playing against Dumars then playing with Nate then watching Nate transition into coaching. He's always real positive and rattles off opinions without sounding soapboxy.

    Vince Cellini and Gill put me right to sleep. :bored:
    Thankfully, Tony Mitchell's after-the-whistle dunks help keep me awake! :shocked:

    That was really good. I guess he can relate to that song.

    Pistons vs. Heat today at 1pm.

    Tomorrow is the final Orlando League game for the Pistons. The time and opponent will depend on league standings after today's games.

    Drummond wanted to go to Universal Studios yesterday and TRG was the only one who would go with him. LOL

    Drummond is a man amongst boys again today so far (9 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block early in the 1st quarter). Siva is just throwing up alley oops to Drummond left and right.

    Drummond misses a lot of bunnies, but no one can box him out so it doesn't really matter. I like it that he actually tries different hooks anyway instead of just dunking. We already know he can dunk.

    Is it just me or is the score on the TV backwards?

    Korie Lucious started at PG today. When Siva came in, though, he was very assertive. Made a very nice move to the basket and had 3 quick assists. The announcers said that if the Pistons release him, another NBA squad will quickly snatch him up. "He can play in this league," is what they both said.

    Miami up 18-16 after 1st quarter.

    It is. They give DET points to MIA and vice versa.

    He definitely looks good out there and was the man scoring 9 of their first 11 in that first quarter.
