    Joe said that he's going to work on this relationship. We'll see how it all comes out.

    One of the comments following the article fit my thoughts...

    Flip has one title...head coach of the Detroit Pistons.

    Joe must feel very comfortable that a mid-season change could be pulled off without ruining the team because it sure sounds like he has put Flip on a short leash.

    That probably means someone inside the organization would get the nod if Flip violates the Dumars Priciples for 07/08:

    1. Play the youth and see what you have.
    2. Limit to starters minutes to ensure they play hard, don't have any excuses to "coast" and are fresh for the playoffs....ala the San Antonio Method.
    3. Get control of a team that has run roughshod over their coach for 2 straight years and create a new identity.

    Descriptions and generalities. Nothing like dancing with fireflies to gather uplifting perceptions.
