    I'd like to see Brownsers come in and do something to balance our roster.

    Nothing gets me more amped about a new GM hire than the words: "Let's hope he's competent".

    It wasn't really an article; more like a sentence. Irregardless, it does look like a non sequitur.

    I can't seem to find any link online, but the Detroit Pistons sent a message to my cellular telephone informing me that they were able to convince Jeff Bowser to leave behind the pomp and circumstance of Marist College and join the Pistons family.

    Mike Abdenour look-a-like night is going to be fun this year!

    Good God, that can't be the brain trust.

    Claskie is so prepared and detailed oriented that he's drawing up plays for imaginary players!

    I would draw all sorts of opinions based on whether slam online readers comment on something.

    You don't want a bunch of coaches revolting against each other. You need guys that get along and complement each other. You also need some players...

    The Pistons brain trust has a combined total of 0.0 NBA games played. How many teams can say that?

    This is a great hire. SVG will need this type of perceptions behind the scenes. Jeff will gather much from a multitude of different sources (scouts, players, older contacts, D-League aspects, etc.). It's a nice balance of personality approaches in solving problems. Plus, it won't take long with these two to round up the right players.
