To be a big man in today’s NBA is likely frustrating. Gone are the days of playing alongside playmakers such as a Jason Kidd, an Isiah Thomas, or John Stockton. Gone are the days of half court offense, running set plays where you touch the ball every possession. Maybe you get double-team in the post and kick it out to the open shooter. Maybe you go one one one against your peer with your best move. Pick & roll even.

In the decade of the shooter, today’s game is centered around athletic players who can shoot from anywhere on the court even if it isn’t a great shot.

The Pistons fell to the Golden State Warriors 119-113. There are NO moral victories in the NBA, but can the Pistons hang our hats on the fact that it wasn’t a blow out?

We know about the players only meeting last week.

We’ve been scratching our heads at a certain player coming back off of injury, firing—but not on all cylinders.

Chuckers

Players that are more concerned with getting theirs than winning….or team. These shots don't equate to wins. I'm talking about players who have never seen a shot they didn't like. Oh, you were open? I didn't notice kind of players. I'm talking Deebo telling Red he didn't know he wanted his beach cruiser back ass... Continue Reading →
