Darko Milicic’s kickboxing debut cut short due to shin injury

Detroit Pistons fans will always remember Darko Miicic, aka the “Human Victory Cigar,” as the man who former President of Basketball Operations Joe Dumars drafted ahead of Dwayne Wade, Carmelo Anthony, and Chris Bosh in 2003. Trust me – we’ll never forget. After deciding to end tens years of failure on the hardwood last summer, Milicic began training for the next chapter...

Andre Drummond Salty After Getting Posterized By James Johnson

    As a Clippers fan, I was really hoping the team would sign forward James Johnson to fill out their bench in the offseason. A versatile big man who can guard different types of players? Yes, please. Of course, it didn’t happen and now I’m left fawning over anything he does on the court. Tonight, that love hit a new level after he demolished Pistons center Andre Drummond...

Detroit Pistons – Who should be traded, Monroe or Smith?

The Detroit Pistons have sputtered out of the gate to a startling 5-21 record.  They are dead last in the Central Division and hold the 3rd worst record in the Eastern Conference, with the exception of the New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers.  With a roster loaded full of talent and potential All-Stars, Piston fans haven’t had much to cheer for. In the offseason, the Pistons...

VIDEO: Brandon Jennings’ awful pump-fake while alone in the paint

The Pistons are brutally awful to the point they’re defending against opposition that isn’t even there. Case in point was last night during a game against the Dallas Mavericks where point guard Brandon Jennings received the ball down low while all alone in the paint. However instead of an easy layup Jennings proceeded with a pump-fake, dribble and fadeaway jumper that went in...

Brandon Jennings passed up WIDE OPEN lay-up (VIDEO)

Vine Brandon Jennings is a shoot first, shoot second, fake pass shoot third type point guard.  You don’t ever have to him to put it up.  And really, he doesn’t even do it well (37% as of Wednesday). For some unknown reason (he wrongly sensed a defender in the lane), Jennings passed up a wide open lay-up Wednesday against the Mavericks. He made a nice backdoor cut to get open...

Brandon Jennings Would Rather Take a Jumper Than a Layup

On Monday, Howard Beck of Bleacher Report noted that Detroit Pistons knuckleheads Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith are both available for trade: New Pistons president Stan Van Gundy needs to trade one or both of these guys if he wants to preserve the sanity of new Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy. Both are firmly on the block, per rival executives. Personally, I believe Josh Smith can...

With Season A Wreck, Detroit Pistons Should Now Be Open To Starting Rebuild With Trades

Reports had the Detroit Pistons dangling Greg Monroe, and asking for a first-round pick in return. Both Stan Van Gundy and Monroe disagreed. (mariselise, Flickr) The Detroit Pistons recently managed to put together a modest two game winning streak amongst plenty of early-season futility, but the abrupt surge of victories did little to change their season trajectory.

Report: Pistons Could Trade Greg Monroe, Others

At 5-19 on the season, it’s rather evident that the current group of Detroit Pistons players simply aren’t getting it done. Short of a complete turnaround, which seems unlikely, this could lead to wholesale changes on the roster. And according to numerous reports, the team could soon go into full “firesale mode.” The Sporting News is indicating that Detroit wants a first...

Will Bynum tapes number and Chinese characters to the back of his jersey

Pistons rejected trade offers from Kings for Josh Smith

Arguably one of the Pistons’ biggest problems this season is the play of Josh Smith and his monstrous contract that has once again handcuffed the Detroit organization to make meaningful moves for meaningful players. Over the offseason though it looked as though the team was on the verge of trading away Smith to the Sacramento Kings ridding themselves of one huge mistake. Not to...

Pistons Injury Update: Jodie Meeks could return for tonight's game against the Phoenix Suns

Coming off of a 2013-2014 regular season in which the Detroit Pistons drastically under-performed compared to expectations, the Pistons front office made substantial moves in the summer to re-energize the team and their fan base by hiring Stan Van Gundy as head coach and bringing in free agent guard Jodie Meeks to help spread out the offense. Unfortunately, following their loss Tuesday...

The Pistons are really bad and there’s no end in sight

It’s no secret that the Detroit Pistons have been a trainwreck for the past seasons as a casualty of a strangely constructed roster—loaded with talent, but lacking in any sort of basketball chemistry. That losing culture was supposed to change, at least somewhat, this season due to the team’s offseason hiring of veteran coach Stan Van Gundy. However, it has remained exactly...

Early in 2014 Season, Detroit Pistons Finally Appear Content to Bottom Out

Entering the 2014 NBA season, most everyone agreed there was a small reason to feel encouraged about the near future of the Detroit Pistons. The team had hired Stan Van Gundy, a serious head coach, gave him personnel power and still had enough talent coming back with Greg Monroe, Josh Smith and Brandon Jennings that a playoff run should have ultimately been expected given some small...

The Detroit Pistons seem to have hit rock bottom in this early season.  According to their record, they are playing some their worst basketball in recent memory. For a team that is averaging the 7th most rebounds per game, with nearly 44, you would imagine that this club would play better basketball than a team that is currently on an 8 game losing streak.  The Pistons find themselves...

New Coach, Same Uninspiring Results for the Pistons

​ In the summer of 2013, when then-Pistons general manager Joe Dumars signed free agent Josh Smith to a long-term contract and then traded for Brandon Jennings, it was a pretty effective signal that the Pistons were a significant ways behind other NBA teams in their abilities to recognize and assemble talent.
