    The long awaited change in how playoff seedings are determined has come. No longer will a division crown guarantee you a good seed.

    :rofl:

    Spurs game makes the list of games to watch, but they don't even mention that it is Nazr's former team. Does this mean there will be no payback? :(

    Tony Lambada/Buckets Delk is going to play in Greece next year. Apparently the Pistons are a minor league affiliate to the Euroleague now (Alex Acker etc.)

    Basketballs not all Cavs might spin
    by Bud Shaw

    Today, a Spin Barometer to keep and apply to what you hear about the Cavaliers next season.

    Or how you'll know if hiring former Pistons broadcaster Fred McLeod as the team's new play-by-play voice was really done to manage the message so that never is heard another discouraging word:

    If Detroit's Flip Murray scores over Damon Jones and it is called "a rare defensive hiccup by a guy who is to lock-down defense what The Club is to car security." Referring to Jones as a "fly-paper defender," or "Dennis Rodman Redux" should also trigger the credibility alarm.

    Porter could become Pistons assistant soon
    Tuesday, August 08, 2006

    Terry Porter, whose involvement in the pursuit of buying the Portland Trail Blazers ended last week, is expected to be named a Detroit Pistons assistant coach as early as today.

    Porter, who played three seasons (1995-1998) in Minnesota for current Pistons head coach Flip Saunders, was part of a group of investors interested in purchasing the Trail Blazers. That was before Portland owner Paul Allen announced last week that he was no longer trying to sell the team.

    Porter would fill the void left by the departure of Sidney Lowe, the former assistant who became the head coach at his alma mater, North Carolina State University after last season.

    Voice of Cavaliers keeps on changing
    BOB FINNAN

    First, it was Michael Reghi. Now, Ronnie Duncan.

    Who's next to get the ax from Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert?

    Duncan's contract wasn't renewed yesterday by the Cavaliers for his position as public-address announcer. It came days after the team fired Reghi, a popular play-by-play television broadcaster.

    ''Me, I can understand,'' Duncan said. ''But for the life of me, I can't understand (firing) Reghi. He was unique. He was different. He was hip enough for the hip-hop generation. He had a solid command of the English language.''
