    Seriously...when Joe goes out and gets a Joe-Type guy, we win almost everytime. We gag about that whole Pistons DNA company line but I feel as if Joe is onto something with it. It's as if Joe knows what he wants, and then easily recognizes it when he see's it.

    Stuckey is #2 among rookies in assists, #1 in steals, and #11 in efficiency.

    You are talking per game averages? He's only played 6 games.

    Thanks for mentioning that. Do you know if their rules are any more liberal concerning assists awarded on post up plays. In the NBA, if the player takes a dribble or even just takes his one step before he shoots there is no assist.

    If believe that if you give a pass to someone cutting to the basket they take the pass plant their shooting foot for a layup or dunk and then score the passer gets an assist.

    That is not true. A player can take a dribble (or two) and an assist can still be awarded. The basic premise is an assist has to be "a major part of the play."

    Yes, those are per game averages.

    Just stating the obvious. Shooting percentage is sometimes not very indicative of the success a player is having on a certain type of scoring attempt. You got to look at points scored per attempt to drive to the basket. Looking at it this way, you add in all those times Stuckey gets to the line and makes his free throws. Now his percentage goes to more like 50%. On top of that, add in the assists he has been getting after driving in, and him driving in to the basket is all the sudden a very successful activity for him.

    I went to the New Year's Eve game and it was great watching Stuckey and AA.

    Pistons DNA for sure..like Tay and Maxiell. Some of the big draft busts like Rodney White and Darko didn't have an ounce of Pistons DNA. If Joe used Piston DNA as a criteria for draft selection he might have gone with Bosh in the 2003 draft. I think Mateen had the right DNA but was still a bust.

    Rodney White was a troubled young man. But he had a ton of talent. I enjoyed watching his whole career, what there was of it anyway, thru league pass. I hope he makes a comeback. People do grow up. We got him as a 19 year old, and in my opinion, took too little responsibility in keepig this young man out of mishief.

    At his best, Rodney White could guard anyone from Garnett to Iverson. That year he also scored at a rate of 26 points per 48 minutes. He could drive in with the best as well as knock down triples. He became a skilled shooting guard, able to dish assists to go along with his scoring. And he was doing this while not even having a real role with Denver. Denver did not use him as a starter, nor as anyone's backup. He just filled in here and there, being anywhere from a shooting gaurd to a power forward, depending on who was injured or in foul trouble. He managed to average 16 minutes a game like this, and was a fan favorite in Denver. (And except for a few games on NBA TV which I did not have at the time on my cable system, I did not miss any of it.)

    Oh yeah, I have NBA TV these days on my cable system, and I am not missing any of Darko's career either.

    It seems for every great draft pick or two, there is a bust or two along the way. Even the most skilled and experienced GMs make mistakes at drafting. It must be harder than it looks, especially when you're not allowed to revisit history.

    If we can have 2 Flips, then we can have 2 Rodneys.

    Only if he is guaranteed to score an efficient 40pt/game for us every time. Not sure if his success in the Chinese rec-league would translate.
