    Thats exactly the way I feel. Whenever I think the topic has finally been put to rest someone always seems to come up with a post slamming the Pistons for firing him as if LB had no say in the matter. It was as much a firing as a sign and trade is really a trade ( or something like that ).

    I don't know Max...who was slamming the Pistons for "firing" him? LB was going to leave...that's the nature of a carpetbagger. He did his job...two great seasons and grooming Darko for future stardom.

    LB himself claimed that.

    'bills, you are in fine form today!!! :)

    I swear, we talk more about LB than Darko. And if someone told me at the end of 2005, that we would talk about LB more in 2008, I would have said they were crazy.

    I can't speak for everyone but maybe we miss LB more than we miss Darko. :kleenex:

    Personally, Flip has a certain way of making me miss Larry Brown and the baggage that came along with him.

    As for Darko; Rodney Stuckey hasn't really caused me to pine for the HVC yet. I hope he never does!

    To be fair...Stuckey has not suffered the blood flow problems that Darko did.

    I think the Palace camera angles are more flattering to him as well!
