    Haha..yea I know...but ya know how some people around here might take what you said serious. (I know,you cant believe it)haha.

    Wonder if this will bother the team...it seems like I always hear people say he is the heart of the team.

    I doubt they will lose 10 games or anything,but it will be interesting to see what it does to them.

    He got suspended for using an illigal weight-loss supplement. I'm thinking Flip Murray somehow snuck it into his drink or something....

    He's always been so skinny to begin with too. That's kinda funny.

    Oh well. Live and learn on his part.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    Phentermine. It is the active indgredient in Adipex or Adipex P, a weight loss drug of the amphetamine family.

    Well yeah, it is, but Hunter knows the rules. He took the pill, which was on the banned list and wasn't prescribed to him. He's an adult. Now, he's got to face the consequences of his actions.

    Cause and effect.

    A rule is in place. Adult takes pill that isn't his and against the rules. Adult must face consequence when testing positive on a blood test.

    The only stupid thing is Lindsey gets suspended without pay while ron gets suspended with pay.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    True, I'm not arguing that.

    But it doesn't make the banning of a dietary supplement any less stupid.

    Well I think the difference is that there isnt a rule that says "If player A decides to beat his signifigant other,player A will be suspended without pay"....

    its just up to the team if they wanna do anything...(just ask the titans about that)..

    Where as Hunter broke a league rule.



    But I know that you know all of that,but you are looking at like in a sense of "ok ron just beat his girlfriend,gets suspended but with pay"...and "heres hunter,he takes an energy pill and get suspended 10 games without pay"..


    But kstat,do you think this will do anything to your team?,Like I said earlier I dont expect them to lose 10 games,but do you think that it will affect the pistons play?

    Not really. Our perimeter defense will obviously be hurt a little, but offensively Flip Murray is an upgrade, so it's a wash.

    long term, I'd rather have hunter than flip, but i don't mind letting hunter's old legs get a 10-game rest.

    Murray was a terrible fit on our team earlier this year, but I'm thinking Webber might help him out a little offensively. Webber's passing makes everyone get better looks.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Ron did not get suspended - he was given a break

    You mean a dietary supplement like ephedrine, that's banned by all sports?

    A dietary supplement that has been proven that it raises your core temp. and and resulted in several athlete's deaths?

    You can't possibly mean banning dietary supplements is a bad thing.

    Well, the substance in question (phentermine) is of the same family as true amphetamine, methamphetamine, MDMA (Ecstacy), and ephedrine.

    I love this game!
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
