    Somewhere in a dark room at the Pistons Training Center Don Zierden is smiling. There can only be ONE hallway coach!

    You sir, are a legend.

    The best Hallway Coach was Garfield Heard.

    So much for Sidney being dragged kicking and screaming into the interview process.

    While Sid Lowe never fulfilled his potential as a hallway coach I'd hate to see us have to rely totally on Don Zierdan for the hallway interviews. It's really too much to put on one man and while Gar Heard was a great player I'm not sure I'd put him in the category of a Lowe or Zierdan type hallway coach IMHO.

    This is obviously a blow to the organization.

    As much as I will miss Sidney, I'm hoping this might free up some hallway time for Ron Harper. You know Ron will tell it like it is.

    Hopefully he can get together with EZ and work out some questions.

    Pistons down by 20 at the half:

    EZ: It seems like the Pistons are playing with no energy. Is picking up the energy something you are going to focus on in the second half?

    Harper: I know that's right Eli. You didn't see the Bulls play like that and win all those games. (Ron waves his hand around to emphasize the point, flashing his multiple championship rings)

    Pistons up by 20 at the half:

    EZ: It seems the Pistons really came out with a lot of energy. Is maintaining that energy something you are going to focus on in the second half?

    Harper: I think that maintaining that energy is important. We are also going to continue to exploit the mismatches.

    EZ: Rip Hamilton seems to...(Ron cuts him off)

    Haper: No more questions.

    Ron wants to be a Head Coach one day. Hallway Coach is like being cast as Rocky or Rambo. Does anyone remember Cobra? I think not.

    I mean, aren't we a little tired of hearing "I'll be back" in every Schwarzenegger flick? He can't escape the Terminator.

    Hallway Coach is an achievement of and unto itself. It is the pinnacle of sideline achievement for those not aspiring to be Head Coaches in this league (Kevin O'Neill notwithstanding).

    Mike Woodson did a little time as a hallway coach before moving on to the (sorta) big show in Atlanta.

    But, your point is well taken. We need a dedicated man. One who isn't afraid to say, "I'll be back" or "we need to execute our offense" a million times.

    I nominate Dennis Rodman. Allthough, my friend pointed out that Dennis may not fit in to a team like the Pistons. He may need to go somewhere that needs the excitement. Someplace willing to let him do his hallway job wearing a wedding dress and hanging on a Playmate. Maybe Atlanta or Golden State.



    The search continues

    Wonder if Woody would come back as an assistant.
    A defensive coach would be an asset (Atlanta had no defensive talent)
    Or would he blindly follow LB to the Titanic?
    Moot point if Woody is reatained.

    I agree Woody or maybe even KO might be cool. I don't think he is doing anything these days.

    O'Neill was a raging alcoholic in Toronto. His hotel room demolition fests are the stuff of legend.

    No need to retread. Our future Hallway Coach is out there. Waiting to be part of a championship ensemble.
