    2006 TVSL: Game 2 - DET vs PHX

    Detroit Pistons – 2006 VSL Game 2 July 10, 2006
    Vs. Phoenix Suns

    Recap:

    Ok folks; this recap will be shorter than game 1. If you would like to know why, here’s a little tidbit: THERE WERE OVER 70 FOULS CALLED IN THIS GAME FOR GOD’S SAKE! Here are a few first impressions:
    - Two really cool things happened to me which topped the game and also delayed my return home leading to this recap not being delivered until this morning:
    1) I got my picture taken with Walt Frazier
    2) I got to meet and talk with Ronnie Nunn for a good 20 min. or so after the game. (You regulars will see the full irony of this)
    - There is one huge difference in this year’s summer league performances…there is no lack of effort from anyone. What I mean by this is: even if a guy’s talent level isn’t at the top of the pack, he’s still out there working his butt off on EVERY play.
    Ok now to the game:

    :tsk: Maxiell according to the boxscore had 11 fouls! Is that possible? I thought after 10 fouls you've fouled out?:confused:

    In addition to The Low, someone else in attendance finally reported on the Pistons -- if only because Amare Stoudamire was on the court too.

    This is Marty Burns from Sports Illustrated:

    He may have already had 10 fouls when they made him sit. I think they lost track at some point.

    You would think there would be a lot of calls only because Amare was playing us, but he had 10 fouls called on him too.:ohwell: As long as we won:).

    Saw the stat line for Acker, any reason why the FG % is low and he has 6 TO's?

    He's the only one apparently capable of creating his own shot. Besides his man can't stay with him so he's being very aggressive.

    About Acker, his wasn't just killin' his man, he was killin' anyone who collapsed/confronted him as he drove. He was mostly fouled but still got off something nice near the rim.

    who is Ronnie Nunn?
    And, low, are you a tall guy, did Frazier shrink or is it the perspective?
    Thanks for the nice recap!

    Ronnie Nunn is in charge of all NBA referees. He works at the league offices, supervising the performance of each referee and making sure that the rules are interpreted in a consistent way. (Supposedly.)

    Frasier played at a listed height of 6'3" (1.9 meters), so I don't think he has shrunk much in old age.

    These reports just keep getting better and better. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    If JMax sees no minutes this year, I'm going to start a "Free the Brahma" letter campaign. Seriously, I love JMax. I loved him last summer league and I'm loving him even more with the report that he doesn't back down from anyone (including real NBA players). Dunking on people's heads, showing his mid range game, bodying up and being physical... what's not to like, or in my case, love?!?

    edited to add: love the photos, keep 'em coming. Where's the one of The Low and TheeTFD?

    Free the Brahma!

    The Low,
    Hey did Acker play exclusively at SG
    Did Amir play just SF?

    Thanks

    Prediction... Acker gets the nod as backup SG... this is what Joe is looking for

    Brahma forcing his way into the lineup?... watchout Dice.

    that's awesome hearing about maxiell, and also the other article where the coaches are trying to emphasize rebounding and improving the shape he is in and looking to pass as well.

    you guys don't happen to be taking videos of any of the games are you? it'd be awesome to see these clips of max and the boys.

    great reporting all around :D

    Wow. I didn't know how bad my knowledge about the old days of the NBA was. I always thought Frasier was a C with the Knicks. So I guess I wrote some crap (not for the first time, though :)

    I'm a 5'10" hobbit. Frazier is a slim 6"2

    Honestly, any of the guard positions are not as specific as SG or PG or even SF in some cases. In most situations it really makes no difference which position these guys are sloted at. It never comes down to position as these guys interchange alot. The only time, it's really an issue is if they happen to put a guy on the block for stints.

    With all these thrown together SL rosters, no one has a specifically assigned position...unless you're like 7'2" or something.

    Amir is mid-range perimeter sometimes and other times he's mixing it up in the paint fighting for boards. It's not as cut and dry as you might think.
