    I agree with this Robert Michael. Playing against Dwight Howard the man-child will only make him get better. I am impressed with how serious Dwight is taking this year. He's always seemed to handle himself in a proffesional manner. I have no doubt that he is a bonafide superstar in the making.

    I'm pretty sure that any of the Pistons current centers would also get manhandled by Dwight in practice.

    There is working hard and then there is that next level. I think DH saw that next level from the superstars this summer. Darko didn't have that 'next level' work ethic that some expected to see. I think "laziness" is an overstatement though. As your game and experience grows, so does your understanding of what it takes to excel.

    I woud give darko some time to figure it out. A little success goes a long way sometimes.

    Dwight plays WAY more physical than Sheed. But Sheed is craftier. Sheed just isn't a center and he's not into man handling.

    The lady reporter at the Sentinel is a cause celebre, in spite of any details about her account of the scrimmage whereat the supposed annihilation of Milicic at the hands of Howard. In fact so many, glassy-eyed guys on the Forum display great obeisance for the Lady Reporter after her recent column. Once again there is nothing which looks like details. I only guess that the guys think that the Lady does not need rational information, that she's just an Apotheosis of Basketball. Since it befits an extraordinary situation, I suggest there should be another HOF on the Pistons Forum. I nominate PHOF. The first word is a synonym of cat.

    I hope my offering is coherent. I just came out of the hospital for a stroke on Sunday. It so difficult to speak and write fluently. I hate to say how long it took to say what I want to say.

    I thought it was the opposite way around.

    Caliban, I am sure the rest of the forumites join me in telling you how glad we are that you are recovering. Strokes can be bad but some people come through them very well. I know my mother had one at 85 and came through it very well.

    Take all the time you need; your posts are worth the wait. Glad to have you aboard.

    I agree with Lazy. Take it easy and recover.

    It is true that some people were quick to jump on the article because it backed their position...however meritable that article may have been.

    TBH, I just posted it because there are some folks who insist that everything with DMC is one sided.

    Frankly, I don't care if he becomes the greatest baller of all time. This franchise sent Isaiah Thomas into exile, was so bad that Bob Lanier demanded a trade, and lost Grant Hill to Disneyland long before Darko.

    What I do care about is where our pick lands. In this regard (and not because he is a former Piston) I wish him the worst of luck. I hope every shot misses, every block is called a foul, and every pass results in a turnover. For Darko, for Jameer, for Grant and for Dwight Howard.

    I want Greg Oden.

    You'd have to trade for him or totally tank the season.

    Honestly, I was just having fun with bballjay. He's gets SO worked up about his 7 foot Serbian fixation. :) That's why my comments have been limited. In all honesty the article doesn't say much to back up an annihaliton of Darko. It just goes to prove that you can't really take what these columnists say for face value because some have shown they have the inability to be objective. Kinda like somebody I know on the forum. That said, I really hope Darko sucks. Bballjay's world would be turned upside down and we would get a great draft pick. Win. Win. ;)

    Hardly, jay would just insist there is a conspiracy to keep Darko from showing the world what Detroit was losing and to intentionally keep him from succeeding so they could lock his amazing skill up long-term for very little cash, yada yada, yada....

    You're ok lazy. But I still want Greg Oden. He's the next David Robinson/Tim Duncan. We get him, you can pencil the Pistons into the 2008 and 2009 Finals.

    If Chauncey or Sheed got injured, I would be ok with tanking the season for a franchise stud (dead serious).

    Yep, I'm thinking trade. Say our #22 and the #6 for the #1. Maybe toss in Mohammed or a second rounder as well.

    We will also throw in a re-signed Dale Davis and one fully charged Tazer.
