    On the positive side...Remember how he wouldn't let that woman leave who was unfamiliar with the area?

    I wonder if there was some embarrassment there on tg's part that contributed to this.

    Didn't he break some Piston rules by playing rookies ? Some of us liked that.

    I loved when Mo told the guys in the summer that they were no longer allowed to practice wearing flip-flops. As the head coach, you have to establish yourself early on.

    He wouldn't leave Singler leave the court who was unfamiliar with the bench area.

    Let the flip-flop era begin.

    It's a shame we never got a chance to see him sing the national anthem before a game at the palace

    His downfall was his love of Kyle Singler. Singler is moved into the starting lineup, and four days later Cheeks is fired. Gores must be watching game tape.

    Since Mo moved Singler into the starting lineup, the Pistons are undefeated. I'm pretty sure that Cheecks was trying to win, and that TommyFive-Buttons wants that draft pick.

    Coincidentally, and that's all it is, Will Bynum has DNP-CD in the past 2 games.

    I will say Brandon Jennings is a better PG now, than the start of the season.

    I really hope that Interim Head Coach John Loyer is paying attention to these trends.

    I hope John Loyer realizes that Will Bynum is simply too short to play basketball.

    Loyer doesn't seem like he'll be cruising the stands during the games looking for fat chicks like Coach Cheeks did.
