  7. Brandon Jennings: Detroit Pistons don’t hold themselves accountable

    “With good teams, somebody sees somebody messing up, then you tell them. Straight up.”

  8. Chauncey Billups considering retirement

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:33 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Courtney Lee, Andre Drummond

    Chauncey Billups has been a star, a role player and a buried bench player. He’s played for winners and losers. He’s been young and old. He’s seen it all, and as one of the NBA’s smartest players, he’s learned it all. So, he knows where his career is headed. Billups, who recently had knee surgery,…

  9. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  10. Chauncey Billups reportedly undergoing knee surgery

    Feb 19, 2014, 6:51 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    What a horrific signing by the Pistons last summer. He’s way overpaid. The Pistons, already a bad team, are worse on both ends of the court when plays. No, not Josh Smith (who’s actually helped the wayward Pistons offensively and defensively). I’m talking about Chauncey Billups. When you give Smith a $54 million contract, your…

  11. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

  12. Brandon Jennings finding running a team difficult after ‘shooting at will’ in Milwaukee

    Jan 22, 2014, 3:03 PM EDT

    Maurice Cheeks, Brandon Jennings

    The Detroit Pistons, clearly in win-now mode, traded the younger Brandon Knight and passed on even-younger Trey Burke in the draft to make Brandon Jennings their starting point guard. Jennings, in his fifth NBA season – and sixth pro season, as the Pistons repeatedly noted when they acquired him – should be more polished than…

  13. Josh Smith takes ‘real offense’ to Maurice Cheeks benching him

    Dec 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    When Maurice Cheeks removed Josh Smith from the starting lineup for missing a practice – called at the last moment, for the day following a back-to-back, after Smith had decided to stay in Atlanta to tend to his ill father – Smith bit his tongue. But now that Cheeks benched Smith for the entire second…

  14. Mike D’Antoni: Chances “pretty good” Kobe plays Sunday… he sold that short

    Dec 6, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    UPDATE 5:37 pm: Kobe Bryant will make his return on Sunday night — he made the announcement in a Facebook video. Apparently he owns some FB stock. 3:22 pm: The Lakers are in Sacramento tonight. Kobe Bryant will be at his home in Newport Beach, trying to get his daughters to turn off the “Muppets…

  15. Maurice Cheeks: Brandon Jennings doesn’t know how to play point guard yet

    Nov 30, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Maurice Cheeks, Brandon Jennings

    Flash back to the Pistons’ news conference to introduce Brandon Jennings. Joe Dumars in his opening statement, as transcribed by Matt Watson of Detroit Bad Boys: We also like the fact that he has five years of pro experience, one in Italy and four in Milwaukee. And we thought that he could step right in,…

  16. Kobe Bryant returns to practice, but are expectations too high?

    Nov 20, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    In Los Angeles, it apparently is illegal to use the words “temper” and “expectations” in the same sentence. At least when discussing the return of Kobe Bryant to the court. As you likely have heard, Kobe Bryant returned to practice on Tuesday with the Lakers and above you see the video as proof (courtesy the…

  17. Kobe medically cleared for everything; Chauncey Billups talks about Kobe’s challenges ahead.

    Nov 18, 2013, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant has been fully medically cleared to return to practice — and that is going to mean a big push this week with the Lakers off for four days. Tuesday through Thursday Kobe is going to get a good workout in with the team and see how it goes. But there are still challenges…

  18. All the new pieces in Detroit not fitting together well

    Nov 13, 2013, 4:34 PM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    When the Detroit Pistons went out to get Josh Smith to pair with Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond, then added Brandon Jennings to the backcourt, it looked like they had something. It looked like they had a playoff team. Instead the Pistons are off to a bumpy 2-5 start and they have the worst defense…

  19. Brandon Jennings expected to miss first 4 regular season games due to jaw

    Oct 24, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings’ jaw is still wired shut. You can’t really play basketball that way (no, not even Kobe) and more than that you can’t really eat and train properly to get ready for the season. Jennings went through a light workout while wearing a mask on Wednesday but is a ways away from returning, reports…

    DeAndre Jordan

    Last season: The Clippers finished the regular season with a franchise best 56 wins, good enough for the fourth seed in the West and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs over the Memphis Grizzlies. L.A. went up two games to none in the series, before Memphis came back to win the…

  21. Brandon Jennings to miss start of season with tooth injury

    Oct 15, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Brandon Jennings, Maurice Cheeks

    It seems the Pistons suddenly have a bigger backcourt problem than deciding their starting shooting guard. Combo guard Rodney Stuckey is already out with a broken finger. Though Maurice Cheeks hopes Stuckey will return in time for the Oct. 30 opener against the Wizards, according to Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press, that seems…

  22. Pistons’ Stuckey breaks thumb, to have surgery Friday, out indefinitely

    Oct 10, 2013, 7:54 PM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey

    Just a day ago, Pistons coach Mo Cheeks was giving Chauncey Billups the start at the two and saying Rodney Stuckey would be getting the chance to steal that job. Stuckey had been the best of the three defensively, Cheeks said. Meanwhile rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was left without a chair when the music stopped. (Actually,…

  23. Chauncey Billups gets seat in Pistons shooting guard musical chairs, leaves Kentavious Caldwell-Pope standing

    Oct 9, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said Rodney Stuckey and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope were frontrunners to start at shooting guard. At least that’s how it was paraphrased in an MLive report. Either something was lost in translation, or Cheeks had a change of heart. Vince Ellis of the Detroit Free Press: After naming Chauncey Billups the starter at…
