    Hopefully Charlie can get Austin Daye (and his life coach) on this boxing program. That way they'd have 2 guys who couldn't bust through an open doorway throwing punches.

    Kevin Garnett beware!!!

    I don't know what I'd rather see in Celebrity Boxing: Chaz vs KG or Chaz vs Daye. Or maybe Chaz, Daye and Gordon vs KG.

    Was just reading an article on how Maggette isn't asking for a buy out and how he could see coming back to the Pistons next year to serve as a role model, etc.

    It just got me thinking, why on Earth wouldn't the Pistons buy him out right now to save a little money now that the trade deadline has passed? Even if we only saved $500K, why not do it?

    If the organization is going to do things like trading young players to save $1M here and there, this seems like a no-brainer.... unless he's just the guy keeping weekly mutinies from happening or something.

    Unless Maggette has a burning desire to play for a contender(he says he doesn't) there isn't any incentive for him.

    Not a smart move. There's no point in it, why would Maggs agree to a paycut? It also looks bad from an organizational standpoint, you don't want to be the kind of organization a player doesn't want to play for because you have a bad rep as a cheap team like the CLippers and Bengals.

    It's not being cheap, it is setting him free to take his talents to a contender. Seems very selfish to hog him when he could be that missing piece somewhere else...

    ...Not to mention, we could use that $500K to sign those two 10-day contracts that 'the Old Paperboy' wants to bring in.

    He hasn't played in months... what are the chances a contender brings him in, without him knowing he'll make his money somewhere else there is ZERO chance he'd accept a buyout.

    I'd use the $500K to give Monroe a bonus out of the blue to make sure that he feels appreciated.

    Since Shaq is retired, I would rather bring in LeBron and Dirk stopper Walter Herrmann.
