    I agree, he found his niche when entered the porn star twitter contest. the only question is what asinine social networking site will people be interested in the future. myspace2.0?

    He can be a solid 10and5 player, he may get you 12and7 in a contract year though.

    Depends.

    He is about to get (or should) get more burn.

    In tonight's Portland lost...in a closing game, an ice-calm guy.

    This guy has a nice stroke and seems to express control...sorta like the-all-world Grant Hill without (perhaps?) the pedigree line.

    His technique is slightly off (to be expected, yes?), but some guys with huge talent need to walk the fire coals.

    As a player, he needs more time. Q is giving more time and I might add, under pressure circumstances.

    Don't be so quick to judge.

    Sometimes you need to act backyards to further time.

    This team has shown a mental toughness that lets loose what it brings...full throttle and open carburetor jets that feed the immediacy on a short end drag strip...good enough for one quarter.

    If you can finish strong, then process refinements need to bridge mental and time learning gaps.

    You don't fight this hard as a walk through.

    Q is gaining a respectful distant that satisfies a majority of thirsty ears.

    He makes less than $500,000/year, how is he a waste of money, you can't pay a player any less than what's he's making. He's wasn't even suppossed to suit up most of the season.

    I could be wrrrrrong but I think they are holding back Summers (knowing he's a part of the future)... somebody needs to convince me that Jerebko is more than a hustling scrub... sorry if this offends... I still like Summers better for his overall talent.

    I agree. Summers seems way more polished than JJ. I like what JJ brings from the mental side, but the guy has difficulty finishing and his shot is either broke or he has been told to not shoot. He is useful in that he is tall and can play multiple positions, but I don't see a lot more from him.

    Sometimes a hustling scrub is all you need to be. Ask yourself this, can you see him as player that can eventually knock down wide open 3's with consistency? Because if he can he becomes a cheap and servicable player that can do a variety of things for a team on the defensive end of the court.

    BTW, weren't you the one concerned that we didn't have enough "hustle" guys on the team before the season started.

    Summers is still learning how to be a paid professional basketball player, he admitted himself that right now the game isn't coming natural to him because he's thinking and processing so much stuff right now. As someone stated earlier JJ is more mentally ready for the game right now than Summers is. All that said you gotta I like seeing all 3 rooks out there on the floor together, fighting to get a Piston win last night.

    THAT'S ENOUGH!!! At 6'10, if he had some more offensive game then he wouldn't be Jonas Jerebko-late 2nd rd pick. He'd have been a lottery pick and would have never been on this team. Sometimes I wonder what y'all expect from some of these cats.

    Oh I dunno... maybe hit an open J once a week or so might help.

    I agree that JJ is giving us MORE than we expected or paid. I think it is great that our supposed 13th man is playing well. All I mean is that Summers may have more to offer (or even Daye) in the starting line-up.

    I think All 3 make Jason Maxiel expendable, not each other. I don't think that Daye brings to the defensive table what JJ brings right now (mainly because of his slight frame), and as I said before until Summers gets more comfortable and confident, JJ is a step -albeit a marginal one- ahead of him too. The reality is that when all 3 become comfortable and confident on the hoop court, the Pistons will be in really good shape.

    I agree with that KGREG. Get rid of an SG too and then we really can maximize the three.
