    I may have to change my flight schedule next week and see if I can stop by or parachute in there to guarantee a PF karma win....

    I have more faith in Summers than I do in Wilcox at this point.

    If we play him as a PF, we would be setting him up to fail. I see potential if we use him as a defensive SF off the bench.

    I think we we go 2-5 at the worst. Utah and Phoenix are VERY winnable. I know that the suns are playing out of their mind right now, but I think our defense is such to take them out of their gameset to some degree. Utah and Dallas are hot and cold, all depends....but this is one of the worst gauntlets of the season at a VERY bad time...

    Wouldn't it be something strange like a win against Utah? I get the feeling this might be the year...maybe not in Utah though.

    Hopefully, we can at least stay on course with Joe's Ghost of Coaches Past tour and beat Flips' Wizards and Carisle's Mavs...

    Now that would be awesome. Then Q could pay a visit to Curry, and says something like,
    "Today I settled all Pistons business, Brown-Beaten, Flip-Beaten, Cola-Beaten....all the former head coaches-beaten....but you gotta pay Curry, oh that little farce you had with Rip and AI, you think something like that could fool [STRIKE]Corleone[/STRIKE] JoeD, no Mike, you're outta the coaching fraternity -that's your punishment.....only don't tell me your innocent......"

    Right now, Q has the experience of a seaward sailor...he steadies the ship. JD can no longer afford the study additions of tattoos who mark offshore excursions.

    Pass you ain't the easiest guy to follow but I can buy ur idea that Q is solid in his job security (Joe pretty much said he has the best security in the NBA).
    It's comforting watching a coach that reacts to the situation without pause... not affraid to substitute for someone not getting the job done ........ and is still a players coach.
    Early returns are positive... subject to review.

    Let's just hope Q doesn't mistake the local lady-boys as the best entertainment this port has to offer.

    In a technical sense, you will not out-think this guy. Mid-mark he will gain strength.

    This roster is 10 deep and I like the mix. After eight, you are in deep psychology.

    The rest of the five left-overs are standard issue. Except for:

    Wilcox.

    I am now personally on the couch.

    To be honest: I thought this was vintage-sneaky JD.

    Typical profile: Residential bargain; young (27); right height position (6-10); athletic and quick; a bouncer that is ready for stabilty...sorta like BenW. East coast battle-ground-fire-walking in opposition to the white heat of AZ, TX, CO, and UT.

    An aspect of a little-here, and a little there, and most certainly an area of ownership for a rightfully fit.

    Goldmines, on an individual level of discovery need only follow the meandering pick in the rich vein at levels 4-5.

    I guess this one went right over my head.

    That would be something. Maybe with a completely different team (and an underdog) we can get it done. Utah have been wildly inconsistent this season. They've already lost to Houston and Sacto at home.

    And blown some big leads in the process.

    This could be the year we break the curse of Memo and beat Utah. We're what, like 1-9 against them since the trade?

    Utah's been very disappointing this season. As they were last season. If I was to pick the most underachieving team of the year, they would be my choice every season since they made it to WCF.

    That loss against Dallas Sunday night put a real crimp in my predictions for this road trip. Stupid, dummy coach!

    I like that we play Utah after having some time to practice.

    This road trip will be important for team building and getting closer as a group. This is a time when Ben Wallace can shine, hanging out with the kids, showing them how a pro-behaves on the road.

    Looking like 1-6 as predicted... tough losses though apart from last night, could have been very different.
