    As an NBA player, you ideally want to get more rings than you give.

    Saw that the other day. SVG could have easily ignored making any big comments but he went out of his way to stick up for Detroit.

    Having been to the Palace a few times, I think the Pistons playing downtown would be better in general, but yeah, Dan Gilbert should totally be worrying about his own problems - like drafting #1 :bs:

    The league must be salivating at the thought of a Detroit/Cleveland feud.

    No doubt. This is one where two cities could be trash talking about ping pong balls for the next decade.

    I agree, I kind of want him to fail as well.

    As much as I loved Rasheed, we don't know how effective he really was. Of course he was loved by the players, but I really want to see this team starting to win.

    Also, we don't need a coach for the big men, we have Stan Van Gundy. We need a coach for the freaking guards.

    Because, it was probably in his coaching contract, that as a placeholder until the end of the season, he would be compensated. This is the organization's acknowledgment that they are fulfilling their obligation. Loyer will be paid for the responsibilities that he upheld.

    SVG has the knowledge base to make the right decisions. Priority number one is to provide that knowledge down the chain. Priority number two is that all share in the systems offerings (offensive/defensive) that made each exposed to what it takes to be a winner. Priority number three is that those millionaires will have to adapt, listen and implement or SVG will find those that will.
    Winning is not magic. It is placing your best assets in the right system.
    Age makes no difference.

    What about the guy above SVG who makes a lot more than millions? Why isn't he instinctively tough to control, corral or influence? To my water carrying eyes he's done more to harm the team than any player.
