How serious is LeBron about wanting to win? Serious enough to play in Detroit?

    If LBJ actually played for the Pistons, he would take over Prince's role of dribbling the ball in the corner for 15 seconds.

    PG: Stuckey
    SG: Wade
    SF: Lebron

    C: Amar'e

    Coach: Mr. Moron.

    ^ CHAMPIONSHIP, because if you have those players, but can't win a championship. Then something is wrong.

    The Pistons might have to give up Amir if you want all of those players.

    What about Milsap? He's the whole reason LeBron wants to sign with the Pistons.

    That's the deal breaker for me. Thread was sounding good before that.

    Like Rodney White before him.....

    I wouldn't trade Amir for Kobe.

    All great ideas, but I don't see the ship happening unless Tay is our 4.

    James is an outstanding player! He can score, pass, rebound, handle the ball - dude can pretty much do it all.

    ...but NObody can suck the life out of a shot clock quite like Tay Prince.

    Yea, and if Tay got the credit he deserved for doing those type of intangibles that don't show up in the box score, then, man, he'd have a whole lot of credit.

    I would love to see LeBron James wear number 23 for the Pistons...I can see it happening if we get Boozer, have a decent season (better than the Cavs), and make a trade for CB4 (all while still keeping enough money for LeBron's interest)

    Our 2010 Lineup:

    PG. Rodney Stuckey
    SG. Richard Hamilton
    SF. LeBron James
    PF. Carlos Boozer
    C. Chris Bosh

    not bad....:winner_first_h4h:

    I think LeBron likes playing with guys that can hit the three. If the Pistons signed Will Blalock, I think LBJ would race to sign on the dotted line.

    Since we're going to be gobbling up 3 top FAs from 2010 class, I like Stuckey-Wade-Battier-Stoudemire-Bosh better.

    Good thinking. I think it would take a lot of the pressure off LeBron to have a player of Will's stature on the team too.

    An interesting sidebar: Both Will and LeBron are avid gardeners.

    LBJ is a 4-time paper-scissors-stone champion.

    LBJ will never play in Detroit and so it goes.

    In 3rd grade, Blalock stormed off the court without shaking hands.
