    oh please, it s very clear by now - this year and next two years will be "dog days" - til certain expiring contracts will be traded. IMO there is no reason to bitch after every game "this team needs this and that"

    Well said raxrets, Win/Loses this year mean nothing this year outside of ping pong balls. This year is all about the kids growing day/day, week/week and setting a foundation where they understand what it takes to succeed.

    How anybody can't be impressed with the way Knight and Monroe are playing and not liking losing is beyond me. Should Big Ben play less? Is JJ playing out of position? probably.... but guess what????? The answer to who needs to start next to Monroe is probably playing ball in the NCAA right now, so its beating a dead horse every game saying they shouldn't play...

    :deadhorse: Resigning Stuckey and Tay is worthy of our complaining

    :deadhorse: Having Ben wallace play more than 8 minutes per game is worth our complaining.

    :deadhorse: Not saying goodbye to CV is worth our complaining.

    :deadhorse: Giving the new owner reading material is worth our complaining.

    I could not have said it better myself. This team is so disfunctional. We have too many players that play the same position with the same limited skill set. We have too many undersized players. We have too many project players. We have too many players that are either one dimensional or have limited skills.

    Joe's signings have been very suspect the last 5 years. Starting with Charlie V. and Ben Gordon whom seem to be allergic to defense and did not fit the defensive identity we had. Was Ben Gordon an upgrade from RIP?? They are putting up similar numbers this year. However, RIP brought us a championship and was our leading scorer for a lot of years. What has Ben Gordon done to earn being the highest paid guy on the team? NOTHING

    Just bringing the same players back and signing them to long term deals has handicapped this team. No one wants to trade for guy's under preforming on bad contracts. This team is going to be bad for a long time. It didn't have to be this way. It would not surprise me one bit if Joe's top priority this summer is to resign Maxiel to a long term deal. Why not?? Someone has to take Big Ben's spot.

    We don't have anything else to do/talk/type about. So we have to moan and groan after every game, it's just part of fandemonium.

    I wouldn't want Kaman right now. His style is too similar to Monroe's. Yeah, he would be an improvement over our current team, but it doesn't help our development. Now, if we can dump some of the contracts we have, that's another thing. Who knows, it might happen. After all, it's not like they have a proper GM. Anyways, I bet Stern already has a trade in the works. Given his love of Detroit, I doubt we're involved.

    I'm in my office and I had to close the door.
    I'm trying not to laugh right now and it's REALLY hard.
