You got to be kidding. Did you see that dunk or not? What was your impression?
You are right and lee is wrong. LeBron dunks like a sissy compared to Max. LBJ dunks for the cameras. Max dunks for total annihilation of the opponent.
My impression is that I have seen Lebron get up a lot higher on his dunks. JMax has a lot of power in his dunks, but one shouldn't confuse power with leaping ability. Whose is more powerful? Lets put it this way. I would not want to be standing under the basket when either one of them throws it down, even if I had a hard hat on.
Actually I was more impressed with Hot Rod's pass on the play. You guys forget that I come from the John Wooden school and don't like the dunk as a play in the game and think it should be outlawed!!! Seriously
One final comment. All players that dunk are taught that you should dunk with two hands and not with one hand, for a number of reasons.
Buddha, I knew you were an older gentleman, but I didn't realize you went to school with John Wooden.

I would say the John Wooden Factory as well.
That must have been Tayshaun's train of thought too.
The scrubs that are not expected to make it played really hard. They are auditioning for possible openings. Mejia needs to get his shot going if he wants to stick around. I like his game, but he needs to be able to nail down the jumper.
The starters played the entire 1st quarter and played in the 3rd. And they played like garbage. The defense was porous, they allowed people to just drive the lane time after time. On the offense they kept thowing up a jumper after a jumper. They didn't rebound. All of a sudden in the 4th they buckle down defensively, they start driving and getting to the free throw line, the assists start piling up. Stuckey didn't do anything until the 4th. Facilitate or not, he only attempted 2 shots through 1st 3 quarters and that sadly enough reminds me of one guy currently on the roster who's waiting until the 4th to take over. And he didn't have a single assist through the end of 3rd.
Are we sure this is our summer league team, did everyone check their ID's before the game?? These guys definitely have Pistons DNA, the problem is we got a new babydaddy in Flip tainting the bloodline
As long as they don't make a habit out of it. When they come off the bench you'd expect energy over the top. I would have to agree with a previous post that it is possible that schedule plays part in it since they play pretty much every day including scrimmages and the timeouts are really short.

Nice Game by AJ 17 points 12 boards - Thats the Piston way to crash the glass
From watching the webcast, Amir is 6'9", not 6'11". I'd like to know who started this rumor and have him fired immediately, but for what ever reason, McCoskey still continues to keep his job. 2nd, Amir was a man among boys. He is quicker than I remembered and can handle the rock. The only question is his outside shooting and his defense, tons of fouls. I can't see why he can't play the 3. Mejeia and Critterdon had their names announced constantly. Critterdon aint ours, but it looks like Mejeia is giving everything he has, and then some to try and make this squad.
Separate names with a comma.
