Well you know, to some people around here, that's retirement age.
I'd take it. Too bad my employer thinks otherwise...
But can you explain the contents? Some big press about water. Go here: PISTONS: True Blue Pistons Arnie knows his anatomy and physiology. He has been exposed to the psychology of expectations on a big business level. A level that is ruthless about quick adaptation. The easy part is technique. The latter is a refinement of anatomical research. The information is out there...but, whether the method of communication as association? Perception says pick a subject taken for granted...the live blood of soup, called liquid. The key here to take mundane and expose associative life lines out of smallness. This smallness of little things all have their tension. They also have their tension upon tensions. This can be a big discovery. To look closely at complex behaviors like smoking or suicide or crime is to appreciate how suggestible we are in the face of what we see and hear, and how acutely sensitive we are to even the smallest details of everyday life. That's why social change is so volatile and so often inexplicable. Malcolm Gladwell
Today's Bleacherreport On T-Mac/Piston collision Tracy McGrady: Top 10 Reasons Signing With the Pistons Is a Bad Idea | Bleacher Report This is just reason # 5
That's unfair. Not that I like the CV signing, but we weren't going to get any of the big names this year anyways. If Joe did nothing last year, after two years of inactivity our roster would've been: Stuckey-Rip-Tay-Amir-Wallace Bynum-Afflalo-JJ/Daye-JMAX-Monroe Wilcox/White plus some other crap player we'd have had to overpay this summer. That team would've been a decent defensive team, but it would also struggle mightily to put up points on the board. All the other team has to do is defend one player; Rip or Stuckey. Neither task is that hard. 27 wins would've been an overachievement for that team. I truly believe Gordon signing will payoff. CV, meeh. T-Mac. Low-risk. Better days are ahead overall.
What an idiotic article. It reminded me why I never read Bleacherreport. Here are a few other gems of insight: So Dumars is a horrible GM that bought himself time by reaching the highest achievement you can possibly get in his position? That's like saying Bill Gates is a horrible businessman who bought himself some time by starting Microsoft. This pretty much sums up one of his reasons why this was a bad idea. Real insightful, buddy. You sure you're not just grasping at straws to fill out a "Top Ten list"? Wow. Shoot me in the head.
Based on what I've read, CV should get another chance here. He's a major talent. The question is how much does he want it. Last season wasn't totally fair, since he was crippled virtually all of it. But he wasn't in the kind of BB condition he supposedly is after a year working with Kandor - and supposedly his work ethic and progress are substantial. He might be a ton better than we're thinking.
Are you saying it was Joe's plan to trade for cap space so he could sign non-big time players? If your not going to get big time players, maybe trading for cap space isn't the move to make? I would rather have your proposed roster + the cap space instead of what they have now.
Can't assume that the '10 draft woulda played out as it stands today. We might have picked a little higher in the '10 draft and had cap space + a "franchise" rookie to build around. ...of course, we also could have won 32 games instead of 27 and picked a little lower. A lot of people like to label the CV & BG signings as Joe's biggest blunder of his "rebuilding effort". I kinda feel like RE-signing Rip to that contract after sending Chauncey home was his biggest ef-up.
The Nets. What did they get for playing their cards "right."
Couldn't agree more. That was the second biggest mistake of Joe's run (drafting he who shall not be named being the first).
Tracy McGrady on Going to Detroit: 'My Game Will Do the Talking' -- NBA FanHouse
and he signed here for $1.35 mill??....talking about a real demotion
Yea only one team really made out. One could say the Bulls also did but Boozer would probably have signed with anyone willing to give him a huge contract.
His injuries did the talking.
Re: WHAT??? MCGRADY TO DETROIT? Ha ha nice!
Oh...I don't know. The scale might be proportional. Look and more importantly, feel what is around you.
