    Hmm, I didn't realize that. I just assumed Gallinari was the PF. I'll need to watch the Denver games more closely.

    And yes, Faried for Max.......WOW!

    Won't happen...with a #1... yes. This is what it will take.
    You must have a vision that understands one's position.
    Available pieces, if right, within a certain time frame, will become building blocks.
    You now begin to build upon certain stable points: the card tower/ House of cards - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    It is always a delicate and sensitized understanding: JD is far removed, but could understand a certain balancing point, that could cause a reactionary approach.
    Gores needs to spend a lot of money. His road of unpaved directions is not privatized and hegemonic, historical influences: most elites are now under the influence of nihilism.
    Detroit and it's de-immigration of population could care less.
    Leadership-wise, make a stand.
    _______

    A put up, or a shut up, from my end is a beginning comment: I say go after someone like Paul Millsap.

    I can confirm that I have considered nihilism.

    Faried is cool, but I'd rather have someone who can defend the Center position. I honestly need to see more Monroe before I can think of a good compliment for him, realistic or otherwise.

    You won't have a black\white world of decision making that confirms total affirmation. There will be levels from Alice (as in Wonderland).

    In a sense, it is highly incremental...there are personal (age, education, mates, and family upbringing) and structural considerations influence by modernism (per Kant: Humankind's emergence from its own minority...And its new motto is sapere aude--dare to know). Sometimes, if you are a thinker, developmental understanding just takes living long enough.

    It seems, from a historical perspective, that it becomes important to become interested in a pre-modern age motif (the non-secular direction). With the aforementioned, and then on to Goethe...all becomes advancing perception, with a slight twist toward our modern problems.

    Still, there are current directions toward maturity, which rhymes with modernity. The best (IMHO) on this perspective is Marshall Berman's, All That Is Solid Melts Into Air. I re-read it every two years. No need to go beyond specifics. A slight introduction, from one of our best public intellectuals, is from George Scialabba (The Modern Predicament,; # 978-0-9831975-6-0)...and I have have been quoting freely (pg. 5):

    Berman asks: what sort of culture, psychology, and character structure have these changes produced? By way of answer, he adumbrates the modern ideal of individual development: activity, growth, autonomy, self-consciousness, adaptability to incessant change. A new, more mobile personality is needed to survive in a competitive market society. And to excel in such a society requires immense, sometime overweening energy, imagination, and ambition---qualities we now call "Faustian."
    ________________

    Now, regarding the Pistons. Who do we jump on in free-agency? I like a dynamic middleman. Hence, Millsap.

    And your choice?

    Josh Smith is a MUST SIGN for the Pistons if he goes to the free agency

    I'm thinking someone needs to give pass a turing test. Maybe me too.

    That is the best recap of the season imaginable. That's why I come to this internet channel!

    Unbelievably funny. The delivery of some of the lines had me in tears.

    The only other time I can remember laughing so hard at something here was when TaS converted a Leecap into some cartoon/stick figure from something Slippy ( I think?) posted during the Mike Curry year.

    I remeber that cartoon thingy that TaS posted and I remember being at work and having to go outside to collect myself because I was laughing so hard.

    Mog, this was not only funny, It summed up the season perfectly.
    If a Pistons fan had been stranded on a deserted island for a few months and needed to know how the season was going, this Hitler vid could bring them up to speed.

    I forgot about that thing.

    Here is the site that helps you create them. I think the technology has probably improved. Might be worth having it's own thread.
