    Stuckey is our expiring contract for cap space. Why trade that away unless you get something great in return?

    I stand corrected.
    (I'm actually sitting at the moment but I stood up while typing that.)

    I had to sit back down in order to process the idea that Rodney Stuckey will be a Piston until the trade deadline (at least). :doh:

    Teams know that we need to get rid of Sticky even if he was the only guard on our team.

    Who wants him for any reason other than his expiring contract?

    Slightly disingenuous.. On the white board, Stuckey is talented. Certain cultural association and the clash of personal expectations , could mean that a certain psychological fit was never there. From the higher level (ownership, administrative, coaching) to the narcissism of player placement within the team orientation; the lower level was left with prayer beads and the vernacular language that no one, outside the minority levels, understand.

    Blah-blah-blah. Psychological fit? What is he, a prima donna? He clashed with every coach he's had. He never improved his crappy jump shot. His b-ball IQ is not high. He just ain't got it, brotha.

    Being from Denver, we never wanted to see Billups go. Had to lose something to get something in the Melo deal. While the Nuggets got stronger (player-wise), we lost a lot of basketball IQ when Chauncey left.

    That was the plan...let him play in front of Denver, then eventually join the front office. George Karl loved him and was upset that he had to be included in the Melo deal.

    I'm pretty sure Karl is clean now. Karl didn't come back because he wanted a contract extension and Kroenke didn't want to give him one. But as far a Chauncey goes, if he wasn't in Denver playing in front of his home team (and his family), I don't think he really wanted to leave Detroit.

    Well, I'm not the one keeping him here. Maybe just too many Administrators with their cheap opinions.

    That was just another story concocted by Dumars to make a very bad trade look halfway acceptable. To review, since we got Sheed, Dumars has done zilch to acquire a good free agent, or do any trades that help us, or well, anything at all to help the team win games. He has brought bad coaches in, and done move after move to keep the payroll down.

    Now, hopefully all the bad stuff is behind us. Dumars did, way beyond my expectations from him at this point, sign Smith. But then he signed Bynum, so just maybe he is still not totally into seeing the Pistons win games.

    Every team needs a Bynumite.
    Want to see what kind of asset KCP is in the hands of CB.

    Interesting reality take. The first paragraph was a good summation. Rightfully true. It was a trade that had to happen. We overpaid, but we had a player/agent that wasn't snookered into the pitch called , market imagery. Sometimes times any movement, that can gain one past a series of former heartaches, may reinforce the susceptibility toward a positive direction. You can not stay in neutral gear forever.

    Regarding the second paragraph, the "bad stuff" is never behind you. It is always the equal, of being next to you. Never think it is selective. But it can never think beyond.

    Antonio McDyess.

    The Calderon trade was pretty slick tbh.
