    Wilcox overslept - lol. At least the others had "flu like" stomach issues.

    Is the coach that bad? One would think the players could handle it better.

    Get the team sold already - What is taking so long?

    Yikes! I hope this doesn't mean that we'll start Bynum, Gordon, Summers, CV, Monroe with only Maxiell off the bench!

    Looks like the Pistons have blue flu and the Taynking lineup will play tonight.

    Protest? Maybe..hopefully?

    Should Kuester follow Jerry Sloans lead and resign? The players on this once proud franchise are definitely frustrated with the coach and maybe Joe's do nothing persona or the owners handcuffing any progression.

    Haha. Joe Dumars endorsed tanking through protest.

    BDL's take

    Five Pistons hold a 'player protest' against their coach - Ball Don't Lie - NBA  - Yahoo! Sports

    Ouch!

    No. Dumars endorsed the protest by blaming and firing all of his coaches for the team's failures and not holding the players or himself accountable...ever.

    He's going to try to play only those 6, but they'll be secretly part of the protest too and will commit many fouls.

    the question will be, does Kuester cave and put in the mutineers or just forfeit the game and walk the team to the locker room through all the boos?

    This is just nasty.

    I would cut my arm off if it meant that Kuester would pull a Norman Dale tonight and yells "I got my 5" if 2 of the non-protesting 6 can't play.

    On the surface it looks like they're protesting the fact that they are STILL Pistons one day after the deadline. Maybe some behind the scenes promises were made to shop and ship these guys outta town and Joe didn't deliver.

    Stern should allow Joe to release them all and sign D-leagers to replace 'em for the rest of the year.

    D-leaguers? heck even Lee356 has no courage to for this dream...his dream is usually 12-15th players from the bench, but this goes even further....:stirthepot:
