Saturday night at the JMA Wireless Dome in Syracuse, NY led by young freshmen, the Cuse switched to a pressing defense to fluster the Irish’s dominant three point shooters.

On the third day of season, my Pistons brought to me…

The Pistons went from being on the top of the NBA (well, they were 1-0, which was technically the best in the NBA) to not the top but at least not the bottom. There have been a lot of positives and some negatives to start the season. The Positives First, Cade is looking way better than he did in preseason. He is shooting 35% from … Continue reading On the third day of season, my Pistons brought to me…

The Thunder aren’t playing like the #2 pick, they’re playing like the #2 seed

Let’s be clear. The Oklahoma City Thunder has played two games and is 0-2. The first was against the Minnesota Timberwolves, where they lost 115-109 Wednesday night, and a loss to the Denver Nuggets 122-117.Before the season for all three teams began, the Pioneer Press predicted the Nuggets finish fourth, the Wolves finish seventh, and the Thunder finish last.

Trading Troy Weaver Moves Again

This move probably came as a shock to a lot of people; after all, the Pistons were being connected to a potential Russell Westbrook trade. The trade that actually happened, so far but who knows what tomorrow will bring, saw Saban Lee and Kelly Olynyk go to the Utah Jazz for veteran wing Bojan Bogdanovic. This has the potential to be a very polarizing trade … Continue reading Trading Troy Weaver Moves Again

Tanking and Alternate Realities Detroit Style.

While Pistons Powered has written on the pros and cons of tanking, PP can hardly copywrite the idea. I have already suggested in previous articles that the Pistons do not seem like they are in a win now mode. The decisions of Troy Weaver to focus on reclamation projects, like Marvin Bagley III or Nerlens Noel or Kevin Knox, and eschew a real free agency … Continue reading Tanking and Alternate Realities Detroit Style.

Houston Rockets new alternate jerseys are GROSS

I am not a fan of these alternate uniforms. On Wednesday, the Houston Rockets released alternate uniforms that they will wear for six games this season; honoring the San Diego Rockets who played in the NBA from 1967-1971 before relocating to Houston. But like many things in the 60s that was tacky and outdated, these uniforms should be at the top of the list. These … Continue reading Houston Rockets new alternate jerseys are GROSS
