    If Bruce Willis does it, anyone can do it.

    I'm not a member of the Pistons management team, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

    Nope.

    I'm his personal trainer though, so give me credit for the weight loss.

    Ben lost the rights to #3 when he ditched the Pistons for "greener" pastures. Perhaps someday they will retire it in his honor. Not right now, though...

    And besides, Stuckey openly offered the number to Ben last year. Ben refused to take it.

    OK. Almost all of last year I tried to tell you to lose weight to improve your conditioning and stamina, which would allow you to play as well throughout the game as you were playing in the 1st qtrs last season. The reduced weight would make you a little bit quicker and help you beat the helpside defenders who regularly played volleyball with too many of your layup attempts. It would improve your lift thus allowing you to get to the line even more than you do now.......But Noooooooooo, you said you were fine, now you seem to be singing a totally different tune as if I hadn't already given you the lyrics to said tune.

    You couldn't resist.

    The weight loss is important, for it points toward another direction: the ability to set goals, deal with the nuances of constant mis-direction that will disrupt your determination of focus, and to understand that this is one area of concentration (your body) that is totally under your control alone. The purpose of accomplishment for me, is that Stuckey did it. As a leadership quality, he has made a big step. This will become a linkage reservoir against intimidation and a certain calmness he needs to understand. The panic attacks will lessen. It may seem an incremental change to us, but it will expand his ability to understand that you always have the ability to stay in control.

    Those are all fair points. I guess I can say you finally got to me and convinced me that weight loss was the way to go.

    This is so cool that we have an actual Piston on the forum.
