    Free Amir, I think a few more performances like the one against Indiana (8 pts 9 reb 7 blk) and he will do it himself no t-shirt needed.

    Seriously I am not ready to hand the keys over to the kid yet but Dyess just got put in check. Amir puts a few more games like that together and Dyess could be restin them old knees more than he wants too.

    It's a t-shirt without a cause. I just passed a car with a "Mitt Romney for President" bumper sticker. Same deal...

    The difference between a successful entrepreneur and an unsuccessful one is understanding market demand, future trends, and evaluating risk/reward.

    The shirts are about a year late. :)

    Yeah, right now you've got to be planning for the "Free Sean Singletary" t-shirt (who the Pistons will take with the 59th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft).

    I like the guys game a lot. He is very exciting. I doubt that the Pistons will draft him. He won't last until the 56th pick and no way we use him with the 28th pick.

    The Hornets now have a better record than us so we are 3 from the bottom in the draft.

    Singletary can't shoot well enough and he is too small a guard for us. No way we take another 6'0" guard. Joe D. has learned his lesson. Big guards for us only.

    Did I miss something? Pistons are 39-13, Hornets are 36-15.

    I was referring to a better record in the respective conference standings. The Hornets are now 1st in the WC and we are 2nd in the EC.

    Sorry for the confusion, I should have been clearer.

    My reference was to the draft positions. As the conference positions now stand they draft behind us. That is what I was trying to refer to

    Thanks for helping to clarify my confusing post.

    :hoops:

    In either case, you are mistaken. It is just overall record that determines draft position. Division standings do not matter.

    Upon further research it appears that you are correct.

    My bad.

    Thanks for setting me/us straight.

    Us is the whole board. Of course you can assume that everyone on the board knows the rule and you might be right. I did not make that assumption, so hence the use of "us"

    Can that go along with the Michigan version of the "'Cause dat's my DJ" shirt you see around here when we draft DJ White in the first round?

    Orlando has Superman
    Cleveland has the King
    We have The Amirzing One

    The NBA advertises itself as "Simply Amazing"

    Very easy to change that to "Simply Amirzing"

    I dunno. Amirzing isn't that catchy and doesn't roll off the tongue very easily. Sounds kind of goofy.
