Took Pacers -8. I feel dirty.

Monroe and Drummond have been playing a lot of minutes lately. I think we'll see them starting together shortly after Calderon gets here.
I'll forgive Calderon being a punk bitch during the Olympics if he can dominate as a Piston.
Yeah. I remember him versus Team USA playing dirty as shit.
Well the good news is that the Pistons are no worse without Prince or Daye... So you'd have to figure adding Calderon will help.
I'm looking forward to seeing Calderon play, but I wish this process could have happened a long time ago.
FSD reporting the trade has been finalized (physicals).
Pistons get to test drive Calderon for a little bit before offering him an extension. I'm guessing he defers and bolts Detroit at the end of the season.
Tough, two fan favorites who'd both spent their entire NBA careers with one team. Going to be weird to see Prince in another uniform as well.
BTW, so what now? Bynum, Stucky, Knight & Calderon....

Move Stuckey & Knight to the 2 where they're more natural and i'm pretty sure both Bynum/Calderon are free agents at the end of the year, so barring a big time signing/trade, i'd assume Dumars would resign one of them.
See who plays better with the young guns, Bynum or Calderon. And get Stuckey outta town either way. Knight to the 2.
Bump. Pistons down 8 to the Lakers.
Artest (Metta) just wrapped his arms around Knights head, and shoved him. Color me shocked.
hopefully Knight starts to show some signs of improvement the second half of the year. Thought he was gonna take a step forward this year.

It seems as if the idea of competing with Calderon has lit a fire under Knight's butt... he had his way with Kyrie Irving 2 or 3 nights ago.
Hopefully. But he seemed rattled after the Artest incident with a few turnovers.
I think the team has come to realize that Knight will not be a true NBA PG. The question now is can he be a SG or is he best used as a combo 3rd guard, regardless of whether he starts or not. The challenge is that's already Stuckey. The team will be built around Monroe, Drummond, and Knight. A true PG, like a Calderon, would help immensely. So that leaves the SF slot where Singler is going to get a long audition.
The big question in my mind is whether Dumars is done dealing. Bynum, Maxiell, Stuckey, Magette and even Villaneuva (if someone is willing to bite on his contract) are all parts that could be of use to another team, while it's clear they have little future in Detroit. There is plenty of cap space to hit the free agent market with, but last time around that ended up with Gordon and CV, so cap space spent is only worth what you get for it. Heck, we also dealt away usable NBA players in Afflalo and Amir Johnson for nothing. Detroit in in the position to have to overpay to get anyone near elite, but the opportunity might be out there to land someone in a trade before it gets to free agency. The chances of re-signing a Calderon are higher because he's in Detroit. That might be true for others as well.....

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind." --Gandhi
Still no coffee drinkers on this team... and Monroe always glued to the bench at the end of games... Frank just infuriates me when it comes to clutch coaching...
You see your team scuffling for a set with the chance to take the lead, CALL A TIMEOUT! Instead you let them flail around and throw up garbage. And rest assured, if there's an inbound play, absolutely no one will get open and there's a better chance at a turnover than an open look. Frank just cannot coach the ends of games.
Drummond is going to be a superstar.
Terrible coaching in the final minute.
"You make sure when you come, you got a little blood in your eye, a little blood in your eye, a little fire in your belly. We there yet?"
Tough ending but Drummond is a beast and Bynum is a much better point than Knight. I think Knight is more suited to play off the ball in the NBA
Frank sure knows how to lose in the ending of games
so mattyfresh and so clean
If Bynum didn't have Drummond in the 2nd unit his assists numbers would be barely scraping 2 a game. He's absolutely not a true point guard and when his shot isn't falling he kills the team... He's a guy that can bring a team back into the game with instant offense but rest assured, in the last couple minutes he's going to dominate the possessions and throw up low percentage shots while everyone stand and watches him.
ESPN had an insider article this week saying Drummond could be the next Shaq
They had Earl Clark guarding him. He was the best option on the floor by far and if his shot didn't rim out we probably win that game
It was disgusting seeing all the bandwagon Laker fans at the Palace. They all looked the same - like ugly, uneducated trash.
nice no call on Kobe and Gasol the last two possessions lol
