    Get rid of Tay, CV, Daye and Stuckey. We don't need anything or anybody in return. JUST GO!

    I think you should be more worried about Arshavin personally!

    You guys are in a bit of a hole this year. I don't think Giroud will be able to fill the void left by RVP - he made so many of your players look really good. And the defenders have regressed, particularly Vermaelan (spelling).

    As a Spur, this doesn't really bother me though :)

    I think the Pistons would go with a 4 man rotation if they did this instead of playing any of the new guys.

    If Golden State called up and offered Klay Thompson for Rod Stuckey, Joe would have to think about it.

    That is their collective trade value.

    Just think what their negative collective value would be if the other team was required to start them all and play them at least 20 mpg.

    This has been the accepted decision that came through the grapevine. JD liked Brown. Of course, Gores may have picked up on some historical happenings before he bought the team. Gores has unknown consultants outside the usual Piston channels. Unfortunately, Gores forgot an important aspect on how you handle certain myths. Especially certain local cultural myths. The Lakers forgot also, but they soon made the correct decision on that forgetfulness.

    Has anyone noticed the selfish play from JJ as of late? It's well known throughout the NBA that guys on bad NBA teams purposefully pad their stats to become more attractive when it's time for a new contract. I may be imagining all of this but I believe JJ is slipping into that category. This team is absolutely AWFUL and I think guys are simply trying to get "theirs".

    He fought KG on Twitter after the game. That one was Ryan Hollins, I think.

    One of the most problematic issues we need to address very soon is this reluctance to shoot the ball. Over and over we see wide open shooters pump-fake their way into a contested WTFallaway as time expires. We gotta have that killer instinct and have the confidence to catch and shoot. Since Rip left, everybody seems to follow Prince's example. Watch carefully and you'll see our guys pump fake even when there's nobody to fake in front of them. It looks like it's become a reflex for them which is troubling.

    Jerebko's fake pumps at the 3 point line, to get two steps closer for a very long 2 really irritate me. Not Tay pump fake level irritation, but give it time...
