    I think they move the stoolies to a team on the west coast. Maybe Portland.

    He's certainly a man with a lot of failings, but for myself, and probably a lot of people in the Pistons nation, he is a hero.

    He's made mistakes, but none as egregious as Jordan's. It's all a matter of who is telling the story, and of course, the victors write history.

    It's definitely an agree to disagree thing.

    Since when was Zeke the thug? Just because he was the ring leader of the most villified championship team in NBA history doesn't make him a thug.
    If Pistons were thugs, it's because that's what's the league demanded to be champion. It was a right of passage going from being playoff losers to champions. All softness had to be removed. Fear and intimidation had to be conquered. Result...you become the intimidator.

    All I had to do was turn on Jim Rome.
    The coaches weren't penalized.
    But the teams were fined $0.5Mil. WOW!

    Robinson went after JR Smith, who was the one who was fouled. They should not have gotten the same number of suspensions. Robinson should have gotten 15, at least as many as Carmelo. It ended up that the players on the team that started everything, Collins and Robinson, were penalized less than the Nuggets. The suspensions should have been more equal. Unfortunately, the Knicks won't be affected nearly as much as Denver, and they are more at fault. It was just a flagrant foul till Nate jumped Smith. Nate should have gotten at least as much punishment as Melo.

    Nate escalated it and should have gotten more than JR.

    I have been annoyed since last year when Skiles was trash talking Rip during a game.. Stern needs the shut the F up rule for opposing coaches who needle the other players during the game. Trash talking coaches are nothing but trouble.

    Definitely a good rule if it isn't on the books already. And if it is, then it needs some teeth.

    I agree with this, definitely. Karl shouldn't be using his players to settle his pissing match with Zeke. The NC-brotherhood thing, to me, is a little bit much. Brown probably already called Karl and sent him an extra Xmas gift. Go Blue!

    Seems mighty funny no one wanted to talk about Jordan's heavy gambling problem. I find it hard to believe he was not beting on games.

    Seem's like Zeke wears out his welcome where ever he goes but he still is a Piston.

    I don't think MJ was betting on games.

    I think the gambling was a by-product of his competitive nature, not a way to make money.

    Most of these guys gamble to look like a big shot at the casino or in MJ's case, to assert his dominance over another man. That's why he is so into the golf gambling.

    I don't know about that. If MJ can blow 20K on a couple of games of Horse with RIP and then demand they keep playing until he wins his money back then the guy can be persuaded to bet on a game of two.

    The way I saw it, Robinson was running his mouth, but Smith decided his best bet was tackling a 5'6" guy into the crowd.

    Did J.R. Smith flop on that foul? It looks like he took a dive.

    Who was it again that threw the punch?

    I didn't know that Zeke played for the Nuggets!

    Did Karl trade for him.

    Hard foul. Heck I have seen Swish Cash give out harder fouls than that and not even get called on it.
