    This thread is to give recaps of what would have probably happened if the games were not cancelled. Today would have been game #3 of the season for the Pistons:

    Wednesday, November 2 vs. Indiana
    Saturday, November 5 at New Jersey
    Sunday, November 6 vs New York

    What would the Pistons record be right now and what interesting storylines have we lost forever?

    For yesterdays game vs the Nets, Kim Kardashian would have shown up trying to apologize to Kris Humpries who would have had his best game ever with a Blake Griffin like effort. The new Pistons rookies would have been distracted staring in stands at Kim's assets and we would have lost this game in the closing minutes as Stuckey >>still trying figure out how to close out a game decides to drive to the hoop and missed an opportunity pass to JJ who was wide open under the basket.

    Little Coach Larry hoping to open the season 2-0 after beating the Pacers last Wednesday is disappointed going into tonights game vs the Knicks as his New Jersey homecoming was spoiled.

    Nice analysis. Obviously, you are assuming that the Super Collider gets an unconditional release from Gyuandong.

    "It's crazy.", said Stuckey as the Pistons dropped to 0-3 since he un-retired # 11, "It's like they're speaking a different language out there. We just need to get out and run!"

    Third game in a row that the veteran players have expressed disagreements with the head coach over music choice in the locker room, starting lineup, and substitution patterns.

    Bad signs for the Pistons economy, Joe Dumars has driven the price of popcorn up 300% with his high levels of consumption. If there were fans at the games, they would probably complain about the inflationary prices.

    Dre gave the Pistons a season-opening win against the Pacers, so Detroit currently stands at 1-2:

    Wednesday, November 2 vs. Indiana WIN 87-86
    Saturday, November 5 at New Jersey LOSS 105-82
    Sunday, November 6 vs New York LOSS 91-90 OT

    The first virtual West coast trip will be a tough one as the team will take their 2-game losing streak on the road against the Warriors, Trail Blazers, and the Lakers. Coach Lawrence Frank was not a happy camper after last night's lost to the Knicks. According to the Pistons Security guy, the team was in the gym at 6am this morning for a grueling 3-hour practice. Tayshaun Prince, Rodney Stuckey and Rip Hamilton staged a boycott of the practice, but the other 10 players were in attendance.

    Wednesday, Nov 9 @Golden State
    Saturday, Nov 12 @Portland
    Sunday, Nov 13 @Los Angeles

    The virtual offense seems to be flowing a lot better when compared to the last two seasons with B-K running the show. His threat as an outside shooter seems to be opening up some opprtunities for his teamates.

    In the Nets game; 4 of those 11 charging calls on Stuckey were bogus!

    It's good to see Don Reid back with the team.

    1) We have to cut down on the starters minutes.
    2) Stuckey has to look to pass more.
    3) Lawrence Frank is a lot shorter than I thought he was.

    I totally agree on your comment about the starters playing too many minutes. We have the best roster in the league on paper. Gotta play 'em!

    Frank is clueless.

    I love what I have seen from Brandon Knight so far. Learning the NBA game as a rookie PG is not going to be easy. Having great finishers like Charlie Villenueava and Chris Wilcox running the floor sure makes his job somewhat easier. There will be some bumps along the way. We will have to be patient.

    We need a poll for each game to decide whether we won or lost.

    Frank is totally destroying the development of rookies. I know it's only three games into the season, but why-oh-why is Prince averaging 42mpg while Daye only played 5.4 and 12.3 minutes in the first two games and got slapped with a DNP-CD against NYK?

    Pistons Office just announced that Terrico White severely sprained his ankle during today's scrimmage. Initial scans were negative, but the team doctors are evaluating it. White won't be travelling with the team in the upcoming road trip.

    I haven't been able to watch any of the games yet as NBA LP is on strike, but can anyone tell me who our assistant coaches are and is Rip still wearing goggles with an attitude?

    Man, that stinks. I was hoping to see Terrico and Brandon Knight on the floor at the same time. Terrico looked really good in the New Jersey game, albeit it was only 12 seconds.
