    Very nice article that lists Stuckey as a player who is destined for stardom.

    I am looking forward to the pistons having a very, very, very promising future of ahead of them.

    I am a true blue Pistons homer from the rooter to the tooter who always looking for some positive vibes.

    For me, the heading says it all:

    I still view Stuck as a solid young player who will only get better. How much better? - THAT'S the question right there. And as for his "Combo Guard" status; he'll likely fall somwhere between Flip Murray and Duane Wade.

    I think he has a long way to go before being considered a "cornerstone".
    I'm pullin' for him though!

    Hey Army - Nice piece from those hacks at Hoopsworld, but I'm not sure it's legal to use the words "rooter to tooter" in a family forum...

    :sssh:

    I hope Stuck is working on his J this very second. Of all the qualities that we want him to have, this one is probably the easiest to improve.

    I was hoping that not many people here know what "rooter to the tooter stands for. We will keep it between us...lol.

    No way, Pistons do not work on their jumpers in the offseason! I'll go root for the NBA darlings like the Celtics if I want to root for players who work on their games in the offseason.

    If Stuckey is developing anything this summer, I hope it is a 3rd shoulder that he can use to bowl people over with on the way to the hoop.

    His hands are too small for him to be a superstar. Simple as that. He'll be a borderline all-star at best. He's the type of player who gets his numbers on a crap team.

    "Rooter to the tooter" sound like the way my family eats a turkey on Thanksgiving.

    Sounds like football talk to me. Does Kobe have big hands? And what quantifies as "big" ... ? I guess we have to talk relative to their size. But I don't think it really applies in basketball that much, not for smaller players anyway.

    I don't think "small hands" are going to hold him back. The improvement of his ball handling and shooting will go a long way towards determining how good he'll eventually be.

    Hand size is directly related to the size of feet and nose.:)

    Yeah. But there's that whole thing about hand-size being pretty important in finishing at the rim. He can shoot all he wants, he'll always have average mits complete with sub 30 percent three point shooting.

    Stuckey has small hands? That's it. We're screwed (sorry Army, I'll bring the positive vibe we share back in another thread).

    Here's a small sample of players who had hugely disproportionally big hands: Karl Malone, Michael Jordan, John Stockton.

    Rajon Rondo has unusually large hands also.

    So I guess we need to have statistical analysis done on players in the NBA with small hands versus NBA players with large hands and look at their statistics to see who had the better averages large hand guys are small hand guys.

    Chris Paul = small hands, Steve Nash, very small hands. Why are we having this conversation? they may have small/large hands but big feet.

    Most women will tell you what they think the small/large hands represent, and can go on to tell you that it just ain't true.

    So it is not the size of the ship, its the motion of the ocean and how you work with what you have.

    I thought the saying went, "it's not the size of the pen or the color of the ink;
    it's how you sign your name that matters"

    I could tell you a story or two about that...hand size is not a predictor...believing in that theory may leave you wanting and waiting.
