    Curry maybe a bit naive in believing that seasoned NBA veterans will suddenly tow the line and buy into the TEAM concept. Bench Sheed and I am sure we will be reading comments in the paper soon after.

    I had it made at one of those apparel stores at a mall in Denver. I got a good deal due to the fact that the manager of the store grew up in Southfield and was a Pistons fan. I guess he got a kick out of it.

    I doubt that a one-game stint with the Hawks gave the league merchandising peeps enough time to make off-the rack versions.

    My thinking was that the Sheed trade put us over the top in '04 and I really wanted to honor that transaction.

    The Hawks had Sheed on a short leash. One bad shooting game, and BAM, he was gone.

    They ain't got nothin' on Coach Curry! 1 bad possession by a player, and he'll trade them during the next timeout!

    Curry is indeed the extension of Joe that Joe has always wanted. The Pistons almost seem as if they run their org based on the teachings of John Maxwell and Stephen Covey's books on organizational structure. This change probably should have happened in 2006.

    Well, Curry thinks he was ready a couple of years ago:

    "I am ready," Curry said. Then he boldly added, "It should've happened when I retired; three years ago I thought I should have been a head coach."

    Gotta be an assistant first. I think Curry is ready now. I like the hire. It's a departure from recycling all the old names that have been head coaches in other places.
