Will Bynum put on a damn show. It's fun to see the Pistons play like that in a big game and bring out some energy in everyone. String together a few more like that and people may start to take notice.
Nice win over the Heat.
Like the Atlanta game, looked like Frank was trying to send a message to the starters. The benched stepped up again: outscored the starters 64-45 and out-rebounded them 22-16.
Have to love the way so many of their vilified bench players are playing well: Villanueva and Day, in particular.
Question: Do we still have our get out of jail free card, or did we use it already?

Still have it. Very surprised they haven't used it on Charlie yet
Do we have a group of short term contracts we could pair up for a failed long term max contract, and free up a ton of cap in one swoop?
Nothing of any value unless the bench guys keep playing great. Maggette and Maxiell fall off the books next season. Hamilton too...wasn't aware we were still paying part of his contract. Those 3 deals free up over $21M
This team is still going to revolve around the young core. Having Drummond, Monroe, and Knight is quite the trio. This team lacks a real 2. Singler is here on the cheap, and has been a pleasant surprise.
Daye could get traded. There were rumors floating around that the Pistons would move him if he was playing well. It just doesn't make sense to have Singler, Prince, and Daye on the same roster.
wow. Pistons rumored to have interest in problem-child Cousins. Not sure why.
Pure speculation on my part: Maggette going back to Sacramento? Isaiah Thomas? Aaron Brooks?
I would take him in a heartbeat for the right price.
What i heard is that Drummond would be involved, but im not sure how true that is. If so, i wouldn't pull the trigger. The way Drummond has played at 19 years old has been phenomenal. Plus, he seems like an all around good dude. No thanks.
I'd trade Monroe for him straight up. Not sure if salaries will work out though
Have not heard the part about Drummond. Agree on him seeming like a good dude. Very high ceiling. No way I would trade him for Cousins.
I wouldn't do that. Why trade a solid, good-passing post guy for a headcase?
Not sure if serious
Serious. Cousins > Monroe.
The rumors were based on earlier interest (from the draft) in Cousins. The huge problem with that is that the Pistons have drafted 2 Big Men. Pistons are pretty high on Kratsov, and that he will come into the rotation, so there is no way they trade for Cousins and keep Monroe and Drummond. The problem is that Cousins hasn't improved from last year.
Only way the Pistons would get Cousins is if they packaged him with Evans/Thornton, and sent Stuckey and Drummond/Monroe back the other way. If I'm Joe D, I want none of that trade. You gotta stick with the last 3 guys you drafted, they all have the a realistic potential of being in the same tier as Griffin, Harden, Love, Westbrook, etc. in the near future.

DeMarcus Cousins getting suspended shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, but what’s next for this dysfunctional franchise? Management and coaching deserve plenty of the blame, but so do the players, highlighted by Cousins, who many expected (myself included) to make “the leap” this season. Instead, he’s actually taken a step back during his third year in the league. Cousins has seen a slight decline in playing time despite him committing far fewer fouls (4.0 last year compared to 3.0 this year), although part of that might be attributed to his far too frequent lackadaisical effort to run back during opponents’ fast breaks, as he’s often too preoccupied arguing with the refs. Cousins’ Usage Rate is essentially the same this season compared to last, but his rpg has fallen from 11.0 to 9.5, while his ppg has dropped from 18.1 to 16.6 to go along with his bpg declining from 1.2 to 0.6. And despite him remaining among the league leaders at shots at the rim, Cousins’ 41.4 FG percentage is actually a career low. Being a head case is one thing, but continuing to be one while regressing on the court is another.
Cousins is hardly the only disappointing Kings player. After coming in as the 28th most valuable fantasy asset last season, according to Basketball Monster, Marcus Thornton currently checks in at No. 111. He started every game last year but just five so far in 2012/13, as Keith Smart continues to meddle with his rotations. Isaiah Thomas is yet another victim, although he might be worth adding in deeper leagues right now after he’s strung together a couple of nice outings lately, which hopefully results in him retaking his job in the starting lineup over an unproductive Aaron Brooks. And those in keeper formats aren’t exactly overcome by excitement with Thomas Robinson’s early returns, and we’ve yet to discuss Tyreke Evans, whose ppg and apg have now dropped every year he’s been in the league. What a mess.
From the blog Roto Arcade: While it’s dropped since the earlier part of the season, Kobe Bryant’s 47.8 field goal percentage is the best of his career, which has occurred during his 17th year in the league. If you include the playoffs, Bryant has now played in 1,410 games – that’s already 150+ more than Michael Jordan. Bryant has slipped [...]
