    Ringling brothers. Its always been like that. Jordan had to deal with it as well.

    Reason for all the Pistons back-backs is double booking the Palace for other venues.

    I am not trying to defend him. Hope he fails to be honest. I would be lying if I wrote otherwise.

    But it seems like a pretty silly rule to me.

    Mutombo is the only other guy with four DPOY. Kind of ironic that Artest won that honor in 2004 when the Pistons won it all...IMO Ben got slighted from 5 in a row due to NBA marketing.

    Rodman had two DPOY as a Piston. I think the HOF should have an alcove called the "Detroit Room" to honor the guys that do the dirty work. But what do I know...afterall, Ben's a malcontent. :hand:

    Hey G-Man. Great posts. I just wanted you to know that the quote above is from my signature at the bottom of every post, and not a response to any particular post in this or any other thread.

    I'm not so concerned with Ben's Hall of Fame prospects. I just don't want to see his legacy as part of the 2004 championship team marred. His Detroit legacy is the one I'd like to preserve. I hope someday to see his jersey retired in the Palace, but I know that not many have been and that Ben's leaving Detroit will surely negatively impact that happening.

    Braids and cornrolls are so out of style now anyway. I would not be surprised if he did that.:MusicBigGrin:

    Oddly enough, I think the Bulls did at one time. I recall reading something a few years ago about that.

    Are crakers off limits, or should they allowed as a distant cousin?

    I am a big fan of French bread and especially toast.

    This would be an outrage.

    This pretty much says it all...and therefore never send to know for whom the bells toll, they toll for thee.
