  1. Video: Rodney Stuckey makes a poster with Chris Bosh in it

    Mar 24, 2011, 11:08 AM EDT

    Rodney Stuckey Chris Bosh

    That headline kind of bothers me because nobody actually has posters anymore, do they? Wallpapers on their iPhone maybe, but not posters. But if you were still making posters, this is exactly what you would want. Detroit’s Rodney Stuckey starts his drive from the top of the lane and Chris Bosh is just a little…

  2. Former All-Star Mark Aguirre falls at gym, in serious condition

    Mar 23, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT

    Mark Aguirre Mavericks

    Mark Aguirre, the former Piston player and Dallas Mavericks All-Star, fell at the gym Wednesday and is listed in serious condition, according to the Dallas Morning News. Reports coming to Mavericks officials after practice was that he “was OK” the paper reports, but there were few details. Apparently he collapsed while running on a treadmill…

  3. Heat’s Anthony breaks nose in two places, will not miss time

    Joel Anthony thinks he’s a hockey player. The Heat’s shot blocking center off the bench (the Heat have about 48 centers on the bench at last count) broke his nose in two when Miami faced Atlanta after being head-butted by Zaza Pachulia, reports Michael Wallace of ESPN on twitter. Pachulia head butted Wallace and caused…

  4. Pistons start tallest back court in 24 years

    Mar 18, 2011, 10:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Indiana Pacers

    Detroit coach John Kuester’s random lottery starting lineups got interesting Friday night. They didn’t have Richard Hamilton to choose from as he left to be with his family after the passing of his grandmother. So the starting backcourt was 6’8” Tracy McGrady at the point and 6’11” Austin Daye at the two. That’s the tallest…

  5. Tracy McGrady admits he really wasn’t into practice. Shocking.

    Mar 16, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady,  Charlie Villanueva,  Greg Monroe

    When a bunch of nerdy guys got together in a room at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, Tracy McGrady took a beating. In a discussion of guys who most wasted the talent they had, former Rockets coach (and current ABC analyst Jeff Van Gundy) as well as Rockets GM Daryl Morey listed McGrady. He…

  6. Tracy McGrady not going to be part of rebuilding Detroit

    Mar 8, 2011, 12:41 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Eminem may have gone all in for rebuilding Detroit, but don’t expect Tracy McGrady to join him. Not the city, the Pistons in McGrady’s case. McGrady has proven to be a solid, veteran point guard this season in Detroit. Think Ron Harper at the end of his career, a guy who played within himself and…

  7. Flip Saunders to coach Wizards Friday despite death of his mother

    Mar 4, 2011, 3:10 PM EDT

    Flip Saunders

    Our condolences go out to Wizards coach Flip Saunders, whose mother passed away Friday morning. Our thoughts are with you and your family. Saunders will still coach the team Friday night when it takes on the Minnesota Timberwolves, according to a tweet from Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Saunders will miss Sunday’s game against…

  8. Piston’s coach says team “starting over,” throws every position open

    Mar 1, 2011, 4:58 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Well, this should solve all their problems. Piston’s coach John Kuester has thrown every position — starting and off the bench — open to competition, he told the Detroit News. “That’s what I said to the team yesterday,” the Pistons’ coach said Tuesday before the morning shootaround at the Bradley Center. “All starting positions, all…

  9. Pistons president Dumars shows support for embattled coach

    Feb 28, 2011, 3:28 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons Introduce John Kuester

    How bad are things in Detroit? Follow this link to the video of coach John Kuester getting ejected Friday night. Some players on the bench — ones that skipped practice allegedly protesting the coach — laugh when he gets tossed. The situation is ugly, my friends. And it is not changing. Team president Joe Dumars…

  10. Pistons officially have no respect left for John Kuester

    Feb 26, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    IL: Detroit Pistons v Chicago Bulls

    Yesterday, the Pistons staged a “sleep-in protest” of John Kuester, with five pistons skipping practice.   Kuester responded by benching those players for last night’s game against the Sixers, and wound up playing just six players. In a shocker, the Pistons lost by a healthy margin. But that wasn’t the surprising part. Kuester was ejected…

  11. Report: Five Pistons players skip practice to protest coach

    Feb 25, 2011, 2:34 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    The ongoing skirmish between Pistons players and coach John Kuester just ratcheted up a notch. Or five. Five players were absent from Pistons morning shootaround Friday in Philadelphia in what a source told the Detroit News was a protest of the coach. Tracy McGrady, Tayshaun Prince, Richard Hamilton Chris Wilcox and Ben Wallace were not…

  12. Pistons want to bring Tracy McGrady back for another season

    Feb 17, 2011, 1:52 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    It’s time. And I’m man enough to admit it. I was wrong about Tracy McGrady. I thought time had passed him by, his knees were Jello and teams should treat him like he had leprosy. But he’s turned out to be a solid, smart veteran who knows how to run a team. His knees may…

  13. Tayshaun Prince is cool if the Pistons want to trade him

    Feb 17, 2011, 11:24 AM EDT

    Tayshuan Prince, Gerald Wallace

    Tayshaun Prince has never put on an NBA jersey that did not say Pistons across the front. Some guys you can picture in another jersey easily — try to think of one Shaq hasn’t tried on — but some guys seem rooted. Thinking of Prince in another color uniform with another name across the front…

  14. Heat’s Mike Miller has no concussion, skips game as precaution

    Feb 16, 2011, 9:15 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat’s Mike Miller had three blows to the head in five days, one in each of the Heat’s last three games. The good news is, a CT scan and other tests showed no damage according to the Associated Press. He was released from an Indiana hospital. Miller asked to join the team for…

  15. Heat’s Miller taken to hospital with concussion concerns

    Feb 15, 2011, 11:59 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat

    Tuesday night, for the third consecutive game, Miami’s Mike Miller took a blow to the head. Tuesday night it was an inadvertent Jeff Foster elbow during the third quarter (he left the game at that point). Last Sunday he was dazed after running into a hard screen by Kevin Garnett. Two days before that, on…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Force was not with the Suns on Star Wars night

    Feb 14, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    What you missed while watching the story of Oedipus acted out by vegetables and voiced by Billy Dee Williams…. The Celtics holding on for a win over Miami and a Magic win over the Lakers were the games of the night. We threw is a bonus Wizards win over the Cavs story at no extra…

  17. Here’s a tip. If you’re going to heckle someone, heckle smart.

    Feb 13, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Miami Heat

    So on Friday in Detroit, some genius decided to start making Valentine’s Day jokes at LeBron about his mother. You know the gag. You’ve seen these types of guys before. Acting as if they’re doing something fun, or trying to get at a player as if that’s righteous, when in reality, they’re just trying to…

  18. Pistons to retire Dennis Rodman’s jersey

    Feb 11, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Dennis Rodman

    Parties I want to be invited to include…. The Detroit Piston s are going to retire Dennis Rodman’s No. 10 jersey with a celebratory event April 1, according to Chris Iott at MLive.com. Yes, they are going to retire his jersey on April Fool’s Day, but they’re serious. Rookie Greg Monroe currently wears the number…

  19. Tom Gores reaches deal to buy Detroit Pistons

    Feb 11, 2011, 9:41 AM EDT

    tom-gores

    Soon, the Detroit Pistons will have a new owner. And with it maybe a direction for the franchise. Billionaire financier Tom Gores has reached a deal to buy the team, according to the Detroit Free Press. The total value of the deal, which includes the team, the Palace of Auburn Hills and DTE Energy Music…

  20. Byron Scott rips his team, effort after loss 26 in a row

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:57 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    In the games leading up to the Cavaliers record in futility — 25 consecutive losses in a row — there were a lot of things you could pick apart about the Cavs: The lack of guys who can create their own shot, the lack of rebounding, the poor execution, the non-existent interior defense, and so…

  21. Meet Will Bynum. He can dunk.

    Feb 9, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Image (1) wbynum-thumb-250x140-18208.jpg for post 3667

    Fans in Detroit could use something to cheer. Something to use their voices for other than another Rip Hamilton chant. Will Bynum is happy to oblige. He is explosive and shows it off here when the Spurs fall asleep on defense. That will wake up a sleepy building every time.

  22. Welcome back, Rip Hamilton

    Feb 6, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Milwaukee Bucks

    Last week, Rip Hamilton was deactivated. Most thought he’d never play again in a Pistons uniform. I certainly never thought he’d play again in a Pistons uniform. Most, and I, were wrong. In our defense, however, we weren’t the only ones surprised by Hamilton’s on-court appearance. Hamilton himself was shocked he was going in. From…

  23. Detroit deactivates Rip Hamilton

    Feb 4, 2011, 8:07 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Just when you think there isn’t any love to be lost at all between the Detroit Pistons and Rip Hamilton, news arrives in the latest tear in the once-strong relationship between franchise and player. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, Detroit has formally deactivated Hamilton, removing even the slightest possibility that he’ll touch the…

  24. Agent denies report Ron Artest wouldn’t mind being traded

    Feb 2, 2011, 3:44 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 3:44 pm: In a predictable response, Ron Artest‘s agent denied that his client wants to be traded from the Lakers and told that to the Los Angeles Times Lakers blog. “Ron is not looking for a trade,” (David) Bauman said. “The frustration is there among everyone on the team. But Ron is a Laker,…

  25. Report: Pistons want to move Rip Hamilton but not Tayshaun Prince

    Feb 2, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT

    TPrince_sad

    Maybe this report is part of a planned smokescreen. Pistons fans should hope it is. Detroit is still trying to move Richard Hamilton — with no success — but does not want to deal Tayshaun Prince before the deadline, according to a tweet from Marc Stein of ESPN. The whole Hamilton thing makes sense. Of…
