    Notice the complete lack of tilt. Not a coincidence.

    Looks like Tay would fit in with the new regime. We should re-sign him:

    Gores is ecstatic

    Gores should clean house with the staff and only keep Arne and Jerry the security guy.

    Seriously. He sounds like he plans on working hard to build a winner. Also sounds like he plans on renting one of these for some of the old staff and players.

    And also he guarded Villanueva very well and kept him away from the bucket...and Hollins....maybe he should be his personal defensive coach??

    Actually, Tom Goes does not and will not own the Pistons. Platinum Equity will. And yes, he's the head of that, but it's still a different situation from Cuban in Dallas. It means the team will be one asset in their portfolio.

    I don't think the league has ever allowed a private equity corporation to own a team before, usually it's an individual or a group who form a legal entity to hold the team ownership. I'm not so sure this is a good thing.
