    Could be one of the best games in franchise history if everybody has their career best game on the same night and we put out the flame.

    Extremely improbable is the most generous that I can be.

    Kyle Singler CAN NOT check LeBron. That's a fact. if the coach tries that, he is a complete idiot.

    Depends on who's coaching?

    If Hill coaches the Pistons to a victory over the Heat, do we stop calling him a fool, or do we think of him as a lucky fool?

    Just saying in order to get the career best out of everybody, who ever coaches has to recognize who is giving the max effort and try everybody instead of leaving them on the bench ala Kim English.....when someone else is stinking it up.

    Over under on another 30 point loss? Also, defense first? :hmmm: Stuckey going up against his idol again...this could get rough. Wade owns him. Also, Singler on Lebron - Kyle better hope Lebron is in a generous mood.

    I am sure Rod will have some hugs for Wade postgame.

    When it comes to hugs, the Pistons always win.

    What's John Loyer got to do to get a shot? Brian Hill has had his chance and he hasn't delivered.

    IMO, Maxiell is the best bet that we have against LeBron. Not sure who would be 2nd best. Maybe Bynum as a pure charge taking strategy.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see LeBron disappear together with the streak on Stuckey Island.

    Not so fast hater.

    Brian Hill can put Singler in position to succeed against LeBron. He just needs to think outside the box.

    1st Q: Have Kyle take the floor wearing a clown costume. Everyone knows that it's tough to do anything when you're laughing. Have Kyle do some extra work in practice (unicycle training, juggling, some comedy routines, etc.). Every time LeBron gets the ball on offense, Kyle needs to come correct with the wacky antics and get LeBron laughing. Incessantly squeezing a bike horn might also be effecive.

    2nd Q: Now that Singler's clown-based comedy is starting to have a diminished effect, he needs to take it to LeBron's sense of smell. Kyle needs to have Mike Abdenour smear feces all over him until the smell is simply unbearable (...pretty much, shower the Duke rookie in diarrhea). Singler needs to then unleash his best shadow-your-man ball denial defense, expending every ounce of energy on staying as close to James as possible. The poopy fecal smell should be too much for him to handle and he'll simply go over to coach Spo' and ask to be subbed-out of the game.

    3rd Q: Again, calling on Mike Abdenour for help, Singler has his shoes outfitted with tiny squirt guns that squirt water on the floor directly in front of his man. While he is checking LeBron, the "chosen one" will be unable to cut and move on the slippery floor. It's quite possible that the wet surface will also result in injury for James and may eliminate him from the game.

    4th Q: If at this stage of the game, James is still on fire, Singler must take the initiative to ACTUALLY set the Heat forward on fire. Early on in the period, Singler must coat LeBron James with a thick sheen of lighter fluid and throw a lit match on him, burning James beyond regcognition. The treatment for these burn wounds should ideally eliminate James from the game. Singler would likely also be eliminated from the game as setting another player on fire is certainly a "Flagrant 2" (this is a tradeoff I'm willing to accept). If there isn't a current listing for this tactic in the NBA rulebook, the "Kyle Singler Rule" will be something that players will have to consider when tempted to set an opposing player on fire in the future.

    Last night I re-watched one of our only good games of the year. The 12/28 Pistons victory over the Heat led by Bynum and Drummond. We looked like a team that was 1 player away from being pretty good.

    I don't think Singler needs to put on a clown costume to get Lebron to laugh.

    Prediction: Pistons run out of the gate firing on all cylinders build up a respectable 3 pt lead. Somewhere in the 2nd quarter the Heat reluctantly wake up and play ball for about 3-4 minutes to build a 20+ pt lead and then coast the rest of the way. Wade/LeBron/Bosh sit out the entire 4th quarter chatting about BBQ sauce recipes while the Birdman racks a rare triple double with 10pts, 18rebs, 13 blocks.

    This statement makes me want to simultaneously cry, die, & then become a fan of a different team.
