    Just watched the last SL game finally.

    Definitely impressed by Daye. He even looks bigger in the arms. Not as absurdly skinny anymore... more Durrant type build now. Gives off the impression that he is the smartest player on the court. It ain't easy playing like a guard when you have his build.

    Summers is also looking good. For some reason, I feel like he is unique in his physical build and skillset. He's just bigger and bulkier than most young players at his position. And for his size, he shoots very well. Doesn't fit the mold though.

    Monroe can pass, that's for sure. The rest of his game looks flat to me, but obviously need to let him adjust. It's just not a good sign that a top 10 pick big man doesn't get any scoring opps in the Vegas summer league.

    White... not sure. Don't see a need for him even off the bench until we lose a guard. Just another athletic guard without a deadly shot.

    A Stuckey-Daye-JJ-BigAl-Monroe starting lineup with Bynum, Gordon, Wallace, etc off the bench sounds pretty sweet.

    You know, Thee, you can actually quote the post that you are responding too, even if it's not the last one in the thread. :MusicBigGrin:

    I think the Pistons should sign Sosa. He's a tremendous passer. We could use TWO guys that can pass, lol.

    Daye needs to just stop. He's off today, probably because he's a little banged up.

    Cousins looks really good.

    Is this guy Reiner related to someone related to the pistons? He is the worst player ever. If he is trying to make someone's team, he probably will be a lot better just sitting on the bench. What a scrub.

    Sosa, what a sweeeet passer. A legitimate bona fide PG. How refreshing.

    Watching the game now. Cousins looks very good.

    Monroe doesn't back down though. The two are trash talking. I like it.

    Great steal by Monroe on COusins. Lots of trash talking between the two. Pistons playing like crap tonight. No energy.

    Pistons aren't defending at all.

    Cousins has 9 pts 8 boards at half time. Casspi looked decent too for the Kings.

    I like the fact that Monroe and Cousins are going at each other and trash talking. If both these guys turn out to be legit NBA centers, it'd be an interesting rivalry they'll have.

    dohh thought they playd at 8 tonight, so just turned on to see the last 2 mins.... just giving JJ the night off to get more size into the lineup tonight or did he hurt himself?

    him missing explains alot of the "no energy" i would guess.

    Yeah they look lethargic..and played no inside D......lets see how they respond in the second half..

    The first couple of shots by Daye were long three point shots and he was way off with the airballs

    White has a nice outside shot but Sosa looked good too. I liked how Monroe was able to finish at the hoop on the a couple of fast breaks....Kwame would have never held on to those passes and Big Ben may have missed the ez buckets....:)

    Whiteside looked good for the Kings in the opening stanza blocking shots. Cousins looked good too playing the inside and making a couple of outside J's

    Monroe's fouling a lot. Some of them are really stupid too. Was it like this the past two games?

    One thing for certain, he won't foul out in this league. :) One of the Lakers guys (Carracter) had 8 or 9 fouls in the first Piston game..

    Does Summers take anything other three pointers???

    Daye's ready to take Prince's spot on the roster. He palms the ball really good outside the 3pt line for 10-15 seconds at a time. I say when he starts palming for 20 seconds he's ready to start at the 3 for us.

    Daye's 0-7 and Summers is 3-11 from the field.
