    Yes. We had to relinquish our Bird Rights on Sheed and AI. We had to relinquish our non-bird rights on Walt and Dice as well.

    Great news for our team. I dont know if anyone here love soccer but No 7 in my favourite soccer team just left, while BG7 came to Pistons. What a strange summer I'm having

    That No. 7 that I think you are talking about just came to my favorite soccer club and now BG7 joined the only basketball team I'm interested in.

    Charlie seems happy about coming to Detroit. I just added him to my Twitter - looking forward to those halftime posts.

    It took me awhile, what this "happy 4th" means...Finally I got it: it was the day America and the rest of world was saved from alien invasion and Hollywood made a movie from this event.

    It is really worth of celebrating.

    It was the day Bill Pullman became president. You go Bill!
    I'm on the fence as to how well I think this will work out. If nothing else, we got good talent at fair market price. I'm not so sold on CV seeing how he fell out of favor everwhere he went but who knows the potential of a diamond in the rough is there.

    Yes, Lee is just not that good. His statistics are inflated because there was so much garbage time for the knicks during the past three years. He is a good complimentary player, just like Ariza.

    Does anyone know what the author of the article means by calling Pistons a "viperous team"?

    That's what I've been thinking too.

    Leave it to a well meaning Indiana Pacer blogger to struggle over the nature of snakes. They just can't help themselves, they actually think the word "hoosier" sounds hip.

    "With two standout adds of Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva, the Pistons look like a viperous team coming into the 2009-10 season as they look to strangle their opponents."

    A Herpetologist would likely explain that snakes in the pit family (pit vipers) are completely different than snakes that constrict their prey (constrictors).

    So the "Hoopacer Guy" must be figuring first we'll strike them, then we'll squeeze the life out them with our impending magnanimous super D...

    He's clearly a fan of the Joe Dumars rapidfire, 'snag'em and bag'em' strategy.

    Thank you Hoopacer Guy.......:)

    That rumor was just silly. But back on topic: I, for one, cannot wait for the press conference that introduces these players (and hopefully) our new coach!

    Re: More Joe D. Love from the cheap seats..(food for thought)

    If he seriously thinks he's gonna pay a guy 11 million to come off the bench then I won't even bother getting my hopes up here.

    Absolutely retarded. Retarded is the key word.

    I expect players & the coach to be intro'd at the same conference next week. Didn't Joe say he'd announce the coach by Tuesday?
