Joe Dumars' steady style helping through changing times | Freep.com | Detroit Free Press Great article, I even have more respect for him now than ever before. I hope that he remains Pistons GM for life. He is steady, even though he has made some decisions are unpopular and which I even question. I assume that you must possess a great understanding of NBA business in order to appreciate what Joe has done. I know a lot of us are jail house lawyers (NBA gurus), but it appears to go deeper than any of us can ever fathom. Do your thing Joe and wish you nothing but success.
