    And all through the HOUSE

    Joe was stirring after weeks of being quieter than a MOUSE

    Then 1201 rolled around

    The phone began ringing what a beautiful sound

    On the line was Lee.............

    Keep it going all of you amateur poets

    "It's David" said He, this man named Lee

    "I'm an agent this summer, an agent that's free."

    "I'll hustle, and pound, I'll shoot and rebound."

    "and just how you like it, in the media, I won't make a sound."

    "This is too good to be true!" said the the man with championship rings two

    "Now I'm about to make you an offer, that you can't refuse"

    And on the line was a brute of a guy, best known for plucking caroms from yonder sky.

    But his name was not Lee. No it was not.

    "Then what was his name?" I heard a slender babe named Austin Daye cry out from his cot.

    He proclaimed his name "Millsap", as he reached with one hand, for his "goin' to work" hard hat, and with the other, his armor plated jockstrap.

    Very soon, I'm sure we'll all hear, that this brute named Millsap, made us all cheer.

    That in 2010, we did throw money at a skinny guy from the North.

    Who went by the nickname Rue Paul, and at the mere sight of the 55th draft pick, would proceed to fall. :nerd2:

    Neither TV nor PC would help me this day, for until July 1st there was naught Joe could say.

    So impatient I waited, as July’s days passed by, with no word from the Palace, not even a sigh.

    Free agents chose Portland, even the Memphis Grizzlies. The detractors all shouted “Blame that dolt, Binary!”

    “No free agents will play for a man so inane. His coaching is tacky, his suits, are the same.”

    “Our team’s days are numbered. Joe Dumars is through.” Yet despite all this ranting, it was only July 2.

    Then as quickly as we wondered what a mess had Joe made, ESPN then announced The Pistons had just made a trade.

    On the line was Lee, David of the Knicks
    Think I'll stay in New York as Darko is on the way
    I'll make my living cleaning up Darko misses
    A match made in heaven
    Look for me to average a Triple Double.

    I'm hoping this is supposed to be some kind of revolutionary, five line haiku.

    So now comes Ben Gordon with contract in hand
    But Rip looked him over and said "I'm still the Man."
    "Not for long," said Joe, "cuz I'm making a deal"
    "You and some filler for a foward I feel
    "Would suit this team better as it steers clear of the Teal."

    Then Rip scratched his beard and said "Now I know why
    "You had your spindoctors fling mud in my eye
    It was the same as when CB and Ben left the team
    we couldn't be heroes who moved on it seems."

    But Joe put his arm around his star guard
    And said, "One day you'll learn that this business is hard
    As a player its tough but for a GM its tougher
    If I let you stay its our fans who will suffer.
    And if our fans suffer our sponsors will flee
    then who will pay for the salaries we need?"

    Then Utah rang with a deal on their minds
    The contracts they found had kicked their behinds
    Can you help us with the cap space you made
    when you blew your season up with that horrible trade?
    Joe looked over Boozer and the things that he said
    And told the Jazz we'd rather get Chandler instead.

    And the forum was buzzing as members discussed
    All the changes and rumors that Joe has amassed,
    But no consensus was reached and everyone would concede
    That they have their own plan on how Joe should proceed

    And discussion went on and the posts were countless,
    But members agreed that the future lies in the darkness.
    Has Joe been talking to Hornets, or Jazz, or has made a tender
    To get us the player that would make our team a contender?

    Amidst all the hype Austin Daye was selected
    And he slipped in the door nary undetected
    Because he was so slim, no one paid him no heed
    They were too busy scanning for rumors on 'Sheed

    But Kander was on it and on the youngster he pounced
    "You need to work out so you can out bench this mouse!"
    So Daye went to the gym to get his strengf on
    There he found Sharpe asleep on the ground

    "We're the future," said Daye, "you and I.
    "And I know the Low is ready to cry"
    "We're not the bruisers he wants to deny
    "Lebron free chili when the game's on the line."

    And Sharpe rubbed the sleep from his eyes
    And suddenly realized what we had already espied.
    That Kwame Brown was the only one left with any real size.
    "We're hosed. Unless Joe makes a sweet trade."
    To which Daye replied...."That doesn't ryhme,
    "Walter."

    Last year we took a slip...
    After all, we just fired Flip.
    Everybody in the know.
    Said it's time for Sheed to Go.
    Sure as Darth Tater counts posts.
    Out of Gordon, we'll get the most.
    I guess Amir will never steal the show....
