    so uh, no more afflalo? I guess the likelihood of him recieving any significant minutes with the stones pretty much vanished with the signing of Gordon, and the emergence of Bynum at the end of last year. Dumars loves acquiring those second round draft picks.

    Glad Kenny is up on piston’s things these days. Jerro you’re slacking.

    Since McDyess went to the spurs the stones really need to add a big man. I’m not sure who out there fits into their price range especially with only 3.5 million in cap space. Is a trade on the horizon or something?

    Going into the season with Kwame, Maxiell and Villanueva as your 3 bigs seems quite scary to me. I wouldn’t mind seeing Joe try to swing a deal for tyson chandler who the hornets would part with it for not much at all.

  3. zachary Says:

    isnt he making like 10 mill per though?

  4. Pat Says:

    Also, it’s only summer league but word is that Summers looks like the backup to Tay for this season already. A guy who can fill it up both with his jumper and taking it to the rack.

  5. Pat Says:

    Yeah Zach, Chandler gets paid quite a bit but he’s only got 1 more season on his deal.

  6. indeedindeed Says:

    Amir is getting some summer burn for the Bucks. Am I delusional or could he still contribute in the league? He just turned 22 in May.

  7. indeedindeed Says:

    Sorry for the slacking. I’m grinding on my book though.

  8. indeedindeed Says:

    Offtopic, but good article about Ford’s woes from Zach:
    http://www.freep.com/article/20090712/BUSINESS01/907120508/?imw=Y

    I looked at a Pinto that’s available for four hundo the other day. Might have to buy it in solidarity.

  9. indeedindeed Says:

    Also, pat, who are you getting the “word” from that summers is the tay backup? austin daye needs to put on weight, but people say he looks nice in summer camp.

  10. indeedindeed Says:

    not sure if i’ve said this on here, but i really hope mcnuggs can get a title. probably the only non-piston i’m cheering for at the moment.

  11. zachary Says:

    who is summers? hes still in college. plays for msu. dunked on some fools.

  12. Kenny Says:

    what zach was referencing.

    probably still the highlight of my year.

  13. Pat Says:

    haha good call out of my language there. Just the announcers during the games and some things i’ve been reading saying that summers has been the most impressive guy on the pistons roster…the whole thing about him being the backup sf is just me speculating.

    I like Daye, he’s just sooooooooo skinny.

  14. indeedindeed Says:

    i know it’s early, but anyone want to speculate on how the stones will do next year? also, should we deal rip for gortat? gortat’s getting crazy buzz.

    stuck, rip, tay, villanohaira, kwame with bgordon—-48 wins? 46?

  15. Pat Says:

    It’ll be interesting to see how the rotation plays out…i know Gordon said he doesn’t mind coming off the bench, but he’s gotta be in the game at the end. Who do they sit? stuck? Go with rail thin frontline of villanueva and tay? I think anywhere from 42-50 wins. I’d say 45 right now.

  16. zachary Says:

    43

  17. indeedindeed Says:

    i’d love to go small and push the ball up the court, but having avery johnson as your dream coach is a signal joe wants to go back to a more defense-oriented mindset. unfortunately, sheed and bwall are far far gone.

    does anyone have a surplus of big men to deal?

  18. Kenny Says:

    yea I think they are really going to be hurting late in games. Even when they add a backup big man, it’s going to be relatively inexpensive one. In other words, a bench/ depth guy. So their best 5 guys will likely be Stuckey, Gordon, RIP, Tay, Villanueva. They would get crushed on the boards with that lineup. And I like Kwame ok, but that was as a big man off the bench. I don’t like him being the defensive anchor of our front line.

    Have you heard these Ben Wallace rumors? I could live with Ben at the league minimum, but that’s about it.

    They should be able to score points. Offensively they have a ton of firepower. Villanueva is a lot like Sheed in terms of being able to do a lot of different things on offense. Obviously Gordon can fill it up and rip is still rip. Stuckey is going to have to really grow into a true pg, because he is going to have some scorers on the floor around him.

    I think they are a 5-8 seed, maybe win one playoff round if they get a good matchup. But they aren’t a contender. Unless Kwame fulfills his draft day (a decade ago) potential, and Jerebko turns out to be the new Turkoglu.

  19. indeedindeed Says:

    i’m not sure turkey leg would help us that much.

  20. indeedindeed Says:

    anybody watch that actual video i posted?

  21. indeedindeed Says:

    also, anyone think gortat is a bigtime starting center in the league?

  22. zachary Says:

    watcched it, this got me sidetracked. who is gortat? isnt he on the magic?

    we should trade for goran. he bang and get some boards.

  23. indeedindeed Says:

    he wants to leave orlando because dwight gets all the minutes, but orlando matched dallas’ five years at 7 a year offer sheet.

  24. indeedindeed Says:

    nevermind, via john hollinger, gortat can’t be dealt now until december:

    “And in case you get any sneaky ideas, remember that Gortat can’t be traded until Dec. 15, can’t be traded without his consent for a full year, and can’t be traded to Dallas at all until next summer. So don’t think the Magic are holding Gortat for ransom — the rules on offer sheets are set up to avert those kinds of shenanigans. This is strictly a buy-and-hold maneuver.”

    good breakdown of orlando’s maneuvers against dallas.
