Is the Buffoonery Era officially over with the Stan Van Gundy hiring?

  1. Unequivocally yes, regardless of how the team does this season

    39.3%
  2. Yeah, I guess

    28.6%
  3. Maybe, but I reserve the right to change my mind later with the benefit of hindsight

    25.0%
  4. I don't think so

    3.6%
  5. Not necessarily, it will depend on team performance

    10.7%
  6. If SVG gets rid of Jennings, I will marry him (may need to travel to a different state for this)

    14.3%
  7. Unequivocally no, this guy is the latest sideshow in the vaudeville that the Pistons have become

    7.1%
  8. Bup-bup

    14.3%

    What if he trades for Jimmer and drafts Kyle Anderson. Slow mo running the show with Jimmer and KCP bombing from the perimeter.

    SVG doesn't have the stones to trade for Jimmer.

    I think we will be very good if we can re-sign Moose and dump Smith.

    The ideal trade in my mind would be Smith + the 8th pick for a sign-and-trade with Jazz on Gordon Hayward. We would get that 2nd ballhandler a la Turkoglu. Hayward is also a skilled shooter. He's in that 6'8-6'9" range, aka ideal SF size imo. This trade doesn't even feel loop-sided either. I mean, the Jazz is rebuildning and I believe they could use a known name as Josh Smith to bring some people to watch their miserably team. All their players are very young, so it won't effect them long-term anyway.

    This would also free up some cap space to go after role players who fit the identity of the team. I think we could take Thabo Sefelosha (or how he's spelling it) from OKC. Great defender and a decent shooter. Atleast the defense plays him honest.

    I'd like to vote yes, but I thought the same thing when they hired John Loyer.

    The Buffoonery era is defined by Tay, Rip, and Stuckey. Until Collider signs with another team, the era cannot be closed.

    I see no reason to vote "no " and to say "tom gores paid five years in advance for the failure, what a smartass."

    :confused:How come there isn't anything between an unenthusiastic sounding " yeah I guess" and an exuberant sounding "unequivocally yes..."

    Something like "yes, I'm confident good things are brewing" I really think some good things are going to happen".

    I can't vote. :ballchain:

    You've got something in common with North Koreans.

    The next thing you know, Drath will be inviting Dennis Rodman to his house.

    You can on your initial vote. Once you click Submit, though, you are done.

    Dear Bill Laimbeer,

    Sticks and stones may break my bones.,.


    P.s. I would love to have Rodman over. Can you imagine how much fun that would be? My favorite basketball player ever after Zeke is Charles Barkley. He says whatever comes to mind. I don't always agree with him but he's hilarious. But Rodman is up there.

    My pride is too strong that humiliation.
    I stuck my PF.com reputation on the Pistons being a .500 club. I failed you all. Shamefully
