    Thanks to both Vern and Ike for inspiring our other players to be better than they were last seaon and allowing Joe to clear another $100 of cap space.

    How does a guy with an NBA body like Diogu keep failing in the NBA???..Ike Diogu must have a 'locker room' problem with his teammates...Guess the NBA isnt ready to accept guys like him yet.:sssh:

    HQ recently created a Forever Pistons Appreciation Tribute thread. If there were ever deserving people to give a tribute, it would be Vern and Ike.

    As often is the case, the true value of Vern and Ike (or Vernike as my friends liked to call the dynamic duo) may not be realized for many years to come.

    Absolutely. The short term loss might be the difference between PO and lottery this year, this we can handle. I'm more worried about the long term impacts on stuff like merchandise, culture and fan loyalty. Things that decide what people say about this move when they look back a hundred years from now.

    I think this gives them the opportunity to reach Henrik Larsson status as their future unfolds. :)

    You know Ike is going to sign for another team and when they play the Pistons, there will be redemption. I'm sure Ike will torch us for like 3 points, 2 rebounds, and a block.

    Or future discussions in swedish staff canteens of why Larsson never reached Vernike like status? And will the move give name to topics like "how the Gretzky trade vernikated Edmonton" or "how Julius Ceasar vernikated the library of Alexandria"? Will decision makers fear lists such as Top Ten Vernikations of the Century? Only time will tell. And heal.

    That means they can't give away tickets this season.:sssh:

    Time for all of the local Piston Forumites to get down there to fill out this group...I know there have to be at least 39 of you within 45 miles of the Palace...

    There is some funny stuff in that article.

    Should have named his son Robinson Dwyane.

    I see what she means.

    They don't seem to be joking.
