LOL, I'm sitting here in the dark, laughing like a fool at that image.
I don't know. I would feel more comfortable if the Hornets could be substitured for. Maybe the local elementary team?
Here's some quotes from AI: Wink wink. (cough bench Rip cough). He's begging MC to do his job.
You know what i hope we get the 6th seed somehow. If we play ORL in the PO's and knock them out, i will consider this season successful. And luckily we don't have to face OKC in the PO's.
Or any of the other cellar dwellers that punked this year like Indiana, Charlotte, Washington, Minnesota or New York....:( not mention those two western teams the swept us in Utah and Portland.
....or indy, or Larry Brown.... Best news of the night were AI calls to coach: lead us! It means that presumably too big egos Rip and AI have understand that there is no chemistry and there are more important things than who starts or who gets 40 min per game. that's why I so desperately wanted them to lose this game. There is no better teacher of humility than losses. hint: Rip from bench does not work well....
Or rather it makes no difference. If this team wants to go back to being successful, they will stick him on the training table with a pantload of frozen bananas, and ask him not to give any interviews until June.
You hit the nail on the head BIG-TIME. Rodney's best chem was woth (1) Tay (2) AI. And as you mentioned earlier, AI seems to really like Stuck and really wants the young fella to shine. Those 3 together really, really looked good. AI also looks real good with AA on the court which is easy for him because our Aaron plays just like AI's best friend from Philly Aaron Mckie. RIP IS THE ODD MAN OUT! Sheed doesn't mind defering, hell he prefers it to a fault. RIP IS THE ODD MAN OUT. Either (1) Trade AI (2) Waive AI or (3) Trade Rip PRONTO!!! One of those three is inevitable, if you allow this to play out until the end of the season the damage may be irreperable. He called out Rip too. Eli quoted Ai as saying, "His (AI) game will come around in the playoffs when the real scorers reveal themselves" I'm paraphrasing so it's not exact, but from what I see right now AI is determined to prove he should hold down this spot not Rip, and Rip is trying to do the same thing too, and we wonder what the chemistry issue is all about.
AMEN! I said it once I'll say it again, running the Ripfense is slow, predictable and ineffective. Ripfense (LMAO) dude StarJones is so smart, she's like the anti.....nawwww I'm leave it alone........
So wouldn't that mean that both of them are causing the chemistry issue ? I didn't hear that comment from AI and i'm not sure if he was referring to Rip from that quote initself,but if it was an indirectly directed at him, AI is an idiot. He really has no room to talk about the PO's or "real scorers". Rip has carried a team through series and won a championship and gotten deep into the PO's the majority of his career. AI has scored his way to an empty finals trip, numerous 1st round exits, and missing the PO's. There's more to being successful than scoring, and until he realizes that he's going to continue to be sitting at home in May/June. DEN is not a bunch of scrubs and they couldn't even win more than one PO game with him. AI is like the anti Billu . . . nvm i'll leave it alone.
precisely...not an enviable position for MC Hammerless
PopcornMachine's GameFlow - DET @ OKC Final verdict. 28:41 of small ball with a -7 result. MC only missed his target of 14 minutes by 14 minutes and 41 seconds (105% off).

Think Low would work some of his recording magic on it?
I can't see anybody saying this at the beginning of the season. How the mighty have fallen. I did like the other quote from Dre that "Flip must be rolling over in his hammock."
That's what i was thinking, couple of weeks and it's the all star game. Shouldn't the Pistons start having some consistency at this point. I wouldn't expect, that if they keep continuing this after the all star brake then suddenly at the playoff everything will be alright. Yeah i know things take time but geesh am getting tired of MC talking about "we're just adjusting".
Well maybe players are getting injured cause they play out of position or to many minutes.
Wish I had skipped this one on the DVR and just took a quick glance at the box score. Not pretty. Seemed like Curry was really micro managing this one. How does Rodney get 2 chances to attack the paint early, then get relegated to the spot-up guy role until the 4th quarter? He never got into the game because Curry was forcing it to the vets all night long. Maybe Stuckey needs to just go for it on his own, but Curry should recognize this and call his number. The Vet approach worked semi-well offensively for about 20 minutes, then bit us in the ass as our old guys wore down, and their young guys got that extras bounce to their step. We should have been up by 10 after that first quarter. Unfortunately, small ball led to about 100 offensive rebounds, and had our PG trying to guard Small forwards in the post on every possession. Even more hilarious due to the fact that one of their SF's is as big as our Center. We definitely needed way more AJ w/Prince/Sheed, and way more AA at SG. At this point I really don't think it will matter if AI or Rip come off the bench. Either way, MC is going to force these guys on the floor, and the guys who give us the intangibles that win games (AA, Amir, KB) will lose minutes. It's on Joe D to make a move at this point.
Well as usual i just turned on my computer in the morning to check the final score of the game, sat there staring at the screen and just laughed and cried and laughed and cried until i started screaming and laughing some more, going insane untill Mrs. Menace brought me my cup of tea and my vitamine pills to cool me down......................
Thunder thrash Pistons | detnews.com | The Detroit News Chris McCosky / The Detroit News I am really really starting to like this guy, lol. How could i have doubt him, my apologies Roscoe :P Right now not only the fans are saying MC needs to quit small ball but even the reporters see and say it. Now if only MC could see it:
