    Nice find. So, unless the Clippers have one of the top 5 records in the 2012 NBA season, then the Pistons get nothing?

    So we might end up giving away Acker for nothing?

    I'm feeling an appreciation thread appearing soon.

    As they could...maybe he put the nix on the Lakers/Hornets trade..."CP3 MUST go to the Clippers...I need ANOTHER second round pick to pick a tall, talented, underperforming 3".

    Exactly. He probably said a "3/4", though, not a "3". Joe likes combo/tweener players that are equally as bad at multiple positions.

    Speights had 17-7 on 8/18 shooting against the Lakers tonight. He also had 2 assists and 2 steals. It was his second game as a Grizzly, with the first one being a 5 minute affair that wasn't that impressive at all. Let's see if he can keep this up, and if he can we can add another mark in the "WTH was Joe thinking?" column.
