    Interesting that the players took an internal vote to reprimand Noah for an extra game. Simply unbelievable they took this route. That must have been some emotional outburst.

    Reading between the lines it sounds like Noah's more like Latrell Sprewell.

    Interesting that the coaching staff is so weak they couldn't make that call themselves (I mean, c'mon, he's Joakim Noah).

    That's probably why they didn't do it - afraid he'll choke them. :pound:

    Good comparison, but sprewell was just hateful.

    Sheed has more talent in the pinky finger of his off hand than Noah does in his entire body including the pinky finger of his off hand.

    Noah hasn't earned the right to go off emotionally.

    Speaking of Noah...
    ESPN - Coach calls confrontation between Noah, Wallace no big deal - NBA

    Ok, really, I just wanted to post that because I wanted to quote this from the comments section of that article:

    "...a non-living object"!!!!:pound::pound::pound::pound:

    Another twist might be, that no matter how he eventual outcome from the coaching side, a four-way stop had to have representation.

    Engineers, or those that have an interest in finding solutions to problems, many times gain insight from the problem area by alternating the occurrence. If you have a huge, troublesome traffic intersection, it makes no sense to shorten or lengthen the light's timing. Making the section a four-way stop solves many issues. Unfortunately, traffic engineers have a particular frame of reference which comfortably says that a smooth, safe and consistent traffic flow, is of the essence.

    Sometimes, you need those psychological four-way stops.

    You be the judge, from your reference area, whether it is needed or not.

    I always thought that 4-way stops introduced the compounded effects of the inefficient mechanism of human reflexes into the system. The longer the length of the light, the more minimal the reflex drag. Although, there is a tradeoff between the average wait time and the maximum wait time.

    maybe you here have already read this sheridian's bi-annual trade-machine: ESPN - High-priced superstars could be on the move - NBA

    For pistons' point of view the most interesting were comments from readers, approximately 70% discussed hypothetical sheed for amare trade, no way it happens, though.

    If you are Joe D, do you want Amare here? What would he bring that would be better than Sheed?

    Amare's only plus is his age and sheed either retires or resigns for lesser amount of money but amare demands even more than he earns now...Amare is not rebounder and defender
