    Maybe Hollins now, and in june, Dumars gone to Cleveland to be GM there, and Phil jackson can be the GM here.

    I know, it's too much, let me dream.

    Agree. They both have coaching experience from running the Pistons when Flip was here

    one-half season left...could entice Phil Jackson for that length of time, while we shop for quality candidates.

    Phil only takes jobs that have superstars on the teams. Otherwise, Phil ain't much of a coach. LB would actually be a better coach for this bunch, but he's doing great at SMU. Who wants him anyway? I agree with you and others about Laimbeer, but he's been passed over so many times, why would he help out the Pistons now?

    It is unthinkable (and inexcusable) that this team is going through another coaching change.

    Gores: "I still have a lot of hope for this season and I expect our players to step up."
    Gores: "responsibility does not fall squarely on any one individual, but right now this change is a necessary step."
    Gores: "This is a young team and we knew there would be growing pains, but we can be patient only as long as there is progress."
    Dumars: "This was a difficult decision for the organization to make but we needed to make a change. We have great respect for Maurice."

    Hollins is perfect since our team is essentially built to resemble the Grizz with the big front line. I hope he says yes soon!

    Is this going to hurt our chances of luring Russell Westbrook here?

    This is crazy!

    How many lives does Joe have?

    Was it the 46 minutes per game he was playing Singler that did Cheecks in?

    Is the organization finally going to get serious and make a run at Chris Jerebko for their coaching spot?

    Detroit plans to let John Loyer coach the rest of season, league sources tells Yahoo Sports. Pistons won't be conducting a search now - Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA)

    Does this mean we are in tanking mode???
