    Ok, so who is your favorite player? Now, I'm not asking you who would you take if you were to start an NBA franchise. I'm not asking you who is the best individual player in the league. I'm not asking you who is your favorite Piston. If you pick your best player based on any of these criteria, that's cool. But you can pick based on anything.

    So if someone picks Darko...that's cool. He's not saying he's the best player...just his favorite. If someone (***cough KIM cough*) picks the player with the best booty...so be it. It's cool too.

    My favorite player? I used to think it was Arenas...but you know, he's a bit of an ass. So tonight I was looking at fantasy stats. My boy Ginoboli was doing kinda crappy tonight. I was thinking...that's OK, Manu. Ypu give it your all. You're a winner. You are getting assists and other stuff to help your team. You've got all that talent and you WANT to come off the pine to help your boys. That's a team player. That's how I play games too...minus the talent, of course.

    I love the flopping. Anyone who has seen me play fantasy sports knows that if it's in the rules...I'll do it. I like Ginoboli. Love the flops. Love the effort. I wish more players were like him.

    Manu Ginoboli is my favorite NBA player. Never even thought about it until tonight.

    So tell us. Who is your favorite player?

    In Pistons, Maxieel. In the league, Josh Smith.
    No reasons, just love them.

    Tay for sure.

    Not on our team, I probably root for Ben the most, since I watch a ton of Bulls games.

    Other than that, I like to watch games with ex Pistons: Arroyo, Hill, Darko, Delfino, [STRIKE]Smush[/STRIKE], etc.

    AI - just wants it more than anyone else

    Honorable mentions...

    Sheed - more fun than a barrel of monkeys and a tragic flaw that would make Sophocles proud

    Big Ben - hate the way he has faded, but man, those were some good years

    For pure entertainment value on AND off the court...there ain't nooo one like Sheed. :MusicBigGrin:

    Strictly on court...Dwight Howard.

    I could see one of these young guys being my favorite player someday. There isn't an NBA player not on the Pistons that I make it a point to see their games. My favorite player will probably always be a Piston. Some of my past favorites were Bob Lanier Grant Hill. Joe Dumars was my favorite player for a long time.

    If I had to pick a favorite player today, it would have to be Tayshaun Prince. He contributes on both ends of the floor, always makes good decisions, plays within the team framework, and is always a professional. I guess he's the closest that the Pistons have to Joe D right now.

    I've given this a lot of thought. I'm gonna go with Scot Pollard. That guy has hidden talents and has been disrespected from Day 1.

    Just for his "we talkin' about practice" classic, AI is definitely up there on my list.

    If you haven't watched it in a while: YouTube - Iverson Practice!

    He said "Practice" 24 and 1/2 times in a 2 minute and 22 second video.
    I would need practice to shoot such a video.
