    Doesn't look like AJ's going to be the one becoming inactive . . .

    Chauncey Billups feeling better, but Game 4 status still up in the air - Detroit Pistons Basketball: News, Blogs, Photos, Audio, Schedule & Stats - MLive.com

    It could be. Lee invented AOTG. He might be hiding more statistical models from us. Hoarding them like Oliver Miller and the last bag of peanuts on Roundball One.

    I've been unimpressed with Amir most of the season. I feel he has regressed.

    But does it make it true if I write for him?

    Those are physical attributes. He hasn't connected his brain to his arms and legs out on the perimeter yet.

    Perhaps because he is hacking and bumping like Rick Mahorn with MadAnts in his pants?

    And anyone who likes offense should not?

    Or when he gets beat, if he does, and a big rotates over to help, Amir will be able to match up better with that big on a switch than anybody else than can check Lewis.

    I wish, if we are going to put Dyess on Lewis, we would post him up.

    It's like when LB got canned Dyess forgot how to shoot his $ turnaround.

    What did Arroyo have to do with Dyess posting up?

    Arroyo was a S/R player.

    I just realized you said turnaround J, i thought were talking about his shot in general which Arroyo was great at setting him up for.

    Thats great news. I hope it happends and I hope he gets more than a few mins to prove himself out there.

    You guys know that I have not been on the AA and Amir are important bandwagon this year. But in this series I would love to see what Amir could do out there. I guantee you all its going to be a heck of a lot more than Walter. And I guess the fact that Walter has been out there is the main reason why I want to see Amir. There is no reason why Herman should be ahead of Amir in the rotation.

    S/R?

    I think he's referring to the fact that it seemed like Arroyo had a really good sense for getting the ball to Dyess in the right place.

    I predict.... No Billups, but a fired up and motivated Pistons team wins going away.

    I predicted the Pistons in 5. So it is written. So it shall be. They will win tonight.

    I duuno, this team gets me worried. we seem reactive or passive or something. We can't seem to turn the corner on anyone consistently...even when their bigs switch on our guards. they have 1 big man but instead of putting him in foul trouble, he puts 3 of our guys in foul trouble. we don't trap or press.
    I generally like the level of play but maybe I don't get the sense that when the going gets tough, we can do things to force things to go our way. I hope the team just flat out proves me wrong this series.

    One, no, its not a stat. Its a simple observation. Amir gets to plays more readily than almost anyone else. This is due to a very unusual combination of height, length, and quickness that he has.

    Lets contrast this to Herrmann for instance, just last game. There were several plays we all wish Herrmann could have gotten to. But he just moves to slow. These two players are like the two ends of the spectrum.

    Next, what you write, good or bad about a player, obviously does nothing. In case you don't know, I do read more than this site and detnews.com. You have been quite prolific this season in badmouthing Amir. Pretty much endless. Pretty much not a bit of it true.

    Next, our offense does not seem to do all that bad with Amir in. It does not improve nor get worse with him in the game, per the stats. Our defense in contrast gets decidedly better with Amir in the game.

    Finally, the crack about him not connecting his arms to his legs is just more badmouthing on your part. Just not true. What is true is that player after player decides to pass the ball to the next guy when guarded by Amir. PS, yes, this is simple observation as nobody is keeping stats on that as far as I know.

    Knowing you, you are about to come up with another load of silly comments. But I warn you, unless they have a bit more merit than this last batch, I will not bother to answer.
