    Wouldn't it be nice for a D league team to become more popular than a NBA team ? Then muscle them off the front cover of the sport section ?
    Then withhold their best players til the season ended. And the players are down with it, even though the money killed them !

    I like the fact that Colangelo knows how to tank. That is crucial for the Pistons organization.

    Exactly. He traded away CV so he couldn't win the team meaningless games in April. A subtle move that not many would notice or give him credit for, but earned extra ping pong balls.

    I don't like Colangelo. I don't think he is a good GM.

    Nobody does. Because he isn't.

    Win record is the only meaningful measure of a coach and a GM. I don't care much for ping pong balls. If you go 10-72 one season, then you better make sure you go 60+ the next to make up for it.

    Hiring Colangelo makes sense now that Mike D'Antoni is free. They were a big part of the 7 Seconds or Less Suns team.

    Who knows, maybe Jerry Colangelo will decide to stop running the National team so he can help out as an advanced scout?

    So many diversions, so many movements. Look for these this three things: procedural, normative and symbolic.
    Things are never a straight line. There are always movements that have intertwined and may seem at times contorted.
    The heaviness of Gores is always the right associations. Sometimes you have to wait for the right movement, depending of course, on what you have previously stated.
    Time for the normative: I think he should go here: NBA hires Kiki VanDeWeghe as VP of basketball operations | The Point Forward - SI.com

    I know the Pistons better than anyone. Look for these three things: paper, rock, scissors.

    Sounds like Gores have learned his lesson and is finally going for top notch names like Colangelo and Isiah. Isn't Kahn also on the market?

    I've got no problems with Colangelao. Thought he did a pretty good job in Phoenix.

    There's got to be some young cat looking to make a name for himself at Platinum Equity. Hire them to run the team.

    Colangelo and Isaiah, NO.

    Both are proven retreads and not the least bit elite.

    You can't start with hamburger and expect to end up with steak. And there are piles of hamburger out there.

    I think you're supposed to call them "challenged" nowadays.
