    I ****ing hate ESPN. Bulls are pretenders because they have the best defense, Rose is coming back and could be the NBA's AP, and they've shown they can beat Miami. But, we are pretenders because Hibbert has sucked, and we do not know how the chemistry will be with Granger coming back.

    Ok, so we're in the same damn situation, but they are contenders and we are pretenders. Makes sense.
    Save yourself the stress don't watch ESPN

    Though I would agree with you, D.Rose is a former MVP whereas Danny is a former AS. There is definitely a difference there.

    But D.Rose also had a much worse injury than what Danny had lol--so it's truly a toss up.

    But ya know, ESPN doesn't actually analyze what's happening anymore. It's comical at times.

    Dallas tried to create a realistic return opportunity for AI to return to the NBA via the D-League and this is his response:



    So he says no thanks to the opportunity, but if one should provide itself, he would give his all, but its not up to him even though all he has to do is sign on the dotted line and give his all?
    He should not have to join a d-league team to prove himself. Look at all these other players making a comeback and signed straight to team. I know people are worried about him messing up the locker room, but that was about him coming off the bench. I'm pretty sure he knows himself and already stated that he would come off the bench, even though i still think he is better than some of the other starting pg's around the league. Its one thing to question his ego, but not his heart. Iverson always played every game like his last. That's why i respect him so much. It's sad that he never did a real goodbye to the league if he never gets his chance.

    Adrian Wojnarowski: In engagement of 3rd teams for possible Rudy Gay-to-Toronto deal, Raptors struggling to find landing spot for Jose Calderon, sources tell Y! As for finding a spot for Calderon, yes, teams have interest in him. Yet how much are they willing to contribute to MEM-TOR in 3-way deal?

    Calderon could be our perfect backup, too bad he is making 10mil and is hard to match that.

    I'm telling you, if the Raptors can go through one more year of being bad...they will end up getting the 1st pick of the 2014 draft and get Wiggins who is also from Canada. These like things happen! Cavs-Lebron, Bulls-Rose

    The Pacers haven't been blown out this season once have they? I can't remember a game off the top of my head..
    Find me on the internets @mattiecolin

    Read it and weep:

    When George Hill is above 15% usage we won 73.5% of games. Below 15% usage we won 61.9%

    IIRC the first MIL game was a blowout the entire time but we ended closer (12ish pts)

    Depends if you consider a blowout 20 pts or more. If you do, the Pacers have been blown out.

    My guess is that the Pacers FO will "kick" the tires when it comes to looking for trades....which won't likely find anything of value. Barbosa was a Veteran Minimum FA signing.....so I'm guessing that if we go that route...since we are at 15 Players already....maybe Ben would have to be waived in order to make a roster spot available?

    If so, then which FA Players are still out there that could be had?

    What positions would we be looking at for improvement ( a Wing Player or Big Man )?

    If it's a Big Man, I'd hope to see if Kenyon Martin would be interested in joining for a Playoff run.

    If it's a scoring Wingman, I'm not sure...as I don't know who is available via Free Agency
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Wouldn't he be going to Memphis as part of that deal?

    I think Boson gets in on the Mem/Tor deal.

    It took Andre Drummond 12 minutes to get a double-double against Milwaukee.

    ...and then Rodney stuckey happened. We go from up 13 to down 10 in one quarter.

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

    And Wil Bynum.

    And Charlie Villanueva.

    And Austin Daye.

    The rest of the bench was awful.

    This is the first time in awhile the Pistons are getting completely outhustled.

    The good news for the Pistons is that Stuckey's contract is only $4 mil guaranteed next season, so they can cut him if worse comes to worst.

    That has almost no chance of happening. Stuckey's still has enough good moments the Pistons won't pay him $4 million to NOT play for them.

    I dont know he has been pretty bad one of the worst wing rotation players in the NBA this year IMO. I love watching Drummond vs Henson/Udoh fun battle to watch. It's a shame John Henson doesn't play more dude is gonna be a great player.


    Drummomd made Dalembert his *****

    That doesn't change the fact that they play much better without him. Again, that's just the worst case scenario if they want to get rid of him and can't find a (reasonable) trade for him.

    If the Pistons play like this tomorrow, the Pacers will win by 30.

    Maybe the Celtics would make a run for him?
