    It looks as though Carlos Delfino won't be playing for Argentia, he has a pretty serious knee injury.

    I think this is the same problem that he encountered a few years back (The year he was very tenative in his recovery and refuse to play).

    Do you still think that we got short changed in this deal? Anyone remember last time he injured himself, he had to go to Argentina to talk to daddy?

    A second round draft pick is looking pretty good right about now.

    LOL. What about all of the others (Darko, Ben, Stack, Grant, Chucky, Smush, etc.)? Once a Piston, forever to be either massacred or glorified...

    What about Hairy Back Hubert Davis? He seems to avoid the "fan penalty" all the time.

    Looks like this guy is totally mental. Years later he's still freaking out about an old injury. Good riddance I say.

    RAPTORS: Carlos Delfino Injures Knee, May Miss Time at FIBAs

    I was really scared when I first saw the posting thread about Carlos being injured. He's got a right to be concerned with an injury to a knee that had surgery on. Last year he played in all 82 games and the playoffs so obviously being healthy and playing every day is a goal when you're a basketball player. He's one of the few NBAers playing for Argentina this go around so he doesn't want to let his country down but I bet the Raptors want him to sit it out and not risk further injuries. I don't think he's a mental case at all, a professional athlete is like a well-tuned sports car and you want to be hitting on all cylinders. This is Delfino's only passion to play basketball and he was obviously really concerned about his knee since he went through a long rehabilitation 2 years ago following surgery. So get better Fino and I'm looking forward to the Pistons playing the Raptors this year to see what Carlos does against his old teammates.

    Thank goodness we traded this guy before the injury. Otherwise we'd really be stuck with an albatross. You think Nazr, Flip, and Dupree are untradeable? How about Delfino with a reinjured knee and a seriously damaged psyche? Thanks for the picks JoeD!!!!

    We traded John Long to Seattle for 2 second round picks. Just some random historical info for y'all.

    But our new Delfino (Hayes) has a history of knee problems too. The only difference is that he is on summer break right now, and not playing international ball.

    Sometimes you get lucky.

    ...Unless Kander knew that knee was about to collapse and convinced Joe to get rid of him immediately.

    maybe Kander was keeping him together with some sort of voodo... and just like hill, once away from the master the body falls apart....

    to any other piston reading... yet another reason to not leave us.

    anybody say allan houston.....

    How is he mental?? I would be somewhat worried if I got injured in the same place multiple times.

    Worried is one thing, but taking 2 years to mentally recover, and then going into the mental relapse again... I understand it was a serious injury, but many athletes have injuries, most of them come back strong mentally. That injury affected his game way beyond the physical hindrance.

    Knicks' fans were saying the same thing about Dice when he left.

    Who made him a star? Does it mean that he'll now get the calls? If so, can we have him back?

    In Canada, if you are in the NBA, you're a star.

    Heck, watching the Canada Basketball ads, you would think Sam Dalembert was Wilt Chamberlain.
