    Much easier. I think we all know how to say that.

    Blaha: "Pistons in desperate need of some scoring right now. Coach Cheeks is looking to the bench, looks like he's putting in the call to the Pizza Guy. Special delivery!"

    Looking forward to the intense battle between Jerebko and the Pizza Guy.

    I hope Dabone is OK. They said Sammy Meija just had a sprained ankle also and he hasn't played in the L since.

    He never recovered from his broken shot. Those things are 95% irrecoverable.

    If you break it down frame-by-frame, Mejia's shot had more to do with the rim being in the wrong position than the shot being broken.

    Datome led Italy with 25 points and 8 boards to beat Russia in their EuroBasket opener. A very efficient 9/13 from the field and 3/4 from deep. Belinelli had 16 on 5/11. I think we have a player who is going to be at least as good as him in the NBA. That's pretty good when you consider how we got him.

    Doesn't sound like Pizza Guy will suffer from bloodflow problems.

    I secretly harbor really high hopes for this guy being a Toni Kukoc type impact player.

    I'm trying to avoid high hopes, but if he can show some hustle, knock down some shots and grab some rebounds, I will be pretty ecstatic. Fear the Bun!

    From what I have seen (limited as it is), he has a great stroke, is good at running plays and getting himself open and is a fairly neutral defender, not bad but not amazing. Rolls to help effectively, but doesn't look like he has the agility/speed combo required to flat out deny people on the perimeter.
