    That's exactly who Cousins reminds me of, KP! Big, tough, physical, immature, a tech waiting to hapen, hot head. Cousins would work on a Pistons team if Chauncey Billups was still the captain and you still had McDyess on the roster, with this group and coach....I'm not so sure.

    And all those coaches JD hires are doing what? The new owner has to get this one right...create a learning organization. Begin small and realize that incremental change and loading adaptability is not the enemy of stress. Life is very addicting and comes most naturally.

    And yet it's not an easy lesson to recognize in the haze of western culture.

    A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. Or poop in the hand.

    Hey guys don't forget the sleepers in the draft.

    I am trying not to be partial because my nephew is the starting PG for UTEP, by the way, I am hoping he stays in for another year.

    I am going to see UTEP vs Marshall on March 2nd. I want to see how Hassan Whiteside looks up close and personal.

    My sleeper is 6'10" Derrick Caracter and Randy Culpepper both players for Utep. Caracter is a BIGGGG dude, look at the legs on that sucker, he is big and can hold his own in the paint with a sweet jumper. Lots of teams are gonna miss this guy and the Pistons need to be there to clean up.

    I have watched every UTEP game this year either live or on the special website that I received from the coaches so I can watch the games.

    Caracter may have turned it around, but he was a complete headcase at Louisville.

    I'm at the OSU/MsU game right now (I'm online because the Spartans look lost on both sides and the Buckeyes don't) and finally getting to see Evan Turner in action.

    So far, underwhelmed. He can handle the ball well for a tall Sg and he's been guarding smaller guards all game. One thing I notice is how awkward his pull up off the dribble is, almost like he brings the ball from his hip. He has all the physical tools *pause*.

    Oh look, MSU decided to show up.

    Yeah he was a headcase, however, in meeting him and talking to my nephew, he is a great guy, went through some stuff while at LSU but that is past and he has a great outlook on the future.

    seems as if he was playing with the flu, started slow, still ended with 20pts/10rbs, with the flu.

    yeah, he looked great in the second half. Got to the lane for pull-ups easily, and set up Diebler.

    Army, I'm very much interested in Whiteside... want to see if he can be a factor against bulky 5s.... on the flipside does the other guy get in foul trouble trying to stay with him.
    Thanks in advanced for your report.

    I'm starting to think we need the #3 pick, can't go wrong at 3. The top 3 will clearly be Wall, Cousins, and Turner; with those 3 you can screw up the #1,#2 pick, but it'll be best to pick the one that is left over so you can sleep at night. Imagine if we had the #3pick in the infamous draft.................

    Remember your reaction when we won the 2nd pick? (my family thought I was nuts)... if we had not won the lotto we would have landed Kaman with the 6th pick.

    I was ecstatic, I was drunk with Kool-Aid, I thought Darko was the Dirk/KG hybrid that idiot Ronzone said he was.......I was wrong. Getting the #2 pick Effed us real good. So now I'm praying for #3, take the pressure off Joe, can't go wrong with #3 in this draft.

    I think that our chances to land with the #3 pick are really low. Sadly.

    BUT, We can get some good stuffs with a 6, 7, 8 or 9 pick..

    I mean, there are some guys over there that can be good for us, I'm talking about Monroe, Patterson, Aldrich, Favors, Aminu..

    There is a huge talent dropoff after 3 in this draft. Favors won't make it out of the top 4. Patterson, Aldrich and Monroe are not impact players, the jury is still out on Aminu.
    No.....we need THE #3 PICK, exactly, and I'd be willing to move Tay, Rip, Bengo or Stuckey plus our pick, in order to obtain THE #3 PICK!!!
