    Rasheed was fined by the Pistons today for missing the bus to practice in Puerto Rico today.

    Chris McCoskey reported to WDFN 1130 AM, as heard at the 3:30 PM update by Matt Dery.

    Update:

    DETNEWS | Weblog | Pistons

    McCoskey is pulling a Mitch Albom, with some references to the game TONIGHT, when in fact it is tomorrow night.

    I don't get how McCoskey has to apologize for being the whistle blower. If Sheed is supposed to be a captain or leader, why do we care if he makes his first 4 shots in an exhibition game? Is that the right message to send to the kids? You can screw up but if you play well, people will let it slide.

    Love Sheed, but he can't slide backwards this year...

    Lets leave Sheed stranded out somewhere in PR where the Pistons are bound to be unpopular after the Arroyo trade.

    Sound like a fine way to kick off the pre-season to me.

    Yeah I don't get it. I mean I can see if we were like in Florida or Texas or something but to leave him in the PR?? I would have thought they would have waited and then just fined him for being late.

    Sheed must have been having some kind fun with a Puerto Rican lady? Lady is euphemism.

    Can't say that I blame him. I am sure his wife wasn't around.. After all if Kobe can do it so can Sheed. Beside those Puerto Rican ladys are even better looking than the Automotion. LOL

    I doubt the Pistons are sleeping in grass huts in some violent Puerto Rican slums. Leaving Sheed in some upscale Hilton suite is probably not a safety concern.

    What I find more interesting is the reference that it happened quite a few times last year and seemingly was spread around certain team members. Could this be another indication that the hegemony of uber-egos finally frailed the team at the end?

    That damn hegemony of uber-egoes! Geez, pass, you make it sound like the 90s Bulls or 80s Celtics.
