    Both these guys look better than Daye. Which is sad. And I like Daye.

    I guess the best thing is to give Daye burn early and deal him for whatever you can get. I like Shaun Livingston as a backup. I hear English played a little PG but also that his handle needs some work.

    I'm holding my breath that a sprained ankle doesn't take Ken Kim English down because this kid seems to have the same skill set as Sammy Mejia!

    We have 6 rookies on the roster with Singler, Stuckey and Vykra. Is that some kind of Pistons record?

    How many of the 6 will be on the roster by opening day? That is the real question.

    Very tough offensive player (like Beasley). You can not stop these players. But it will take the right organizational mindset to make things happen. If they don't, then goodbye. Of course, both do not fit into JD's mold. I also am beginning to think that Gores is much beholding to his sensitized way of winning. Sun in serious talks with Beasley and they just signed E. Gordon to a 4 year contract (S/T). The Sun organization just does not understand character abilities:

    After visiting the Suns, the impression the organization made on me was incredible," Gordon said in a statement through his agent, Rob Pelinka. "(Suns Managing Partner) Mr. (Robert) Sarver, (President of Basketball Operations) Lon Babby, (General Manager) Lance Blanks, the front-office staff and Coach (Alvin) Gentry run a first-class organization and I strongly feel they are the right franchise for me. Phoenix is just where my heart is now."

    Ugh, Kuester. Don't know how anyone could've looked at that signing and not thought "he's never going to last."

    i'm liking the prospect of pursuing trevor ariza for our team in 13.

    igoudala would be nice but he's not always a game changer and you have to pay him a lot.

    The Beast or Dre as a starter? Me like! GM at the PF also means less BOT, another good thing.

    Can't wait to watch the Insane Ukraine in action. He seems to go into beast mode at the rim as a convenient habit. :scared:

    We have some serious European flavor now. The Pistons are the Spurs of the East.

    Not sure, but I think you might be confusing the Spurs with the Sacramento Kings.
