Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

The Palace Prince

Damn.

Without a goodbye, Tayshaun Prince was sent to the Memphis Grizzlies yesterday.

Prince was the last remaining member of the 2004 NBA Champion Detroit Pistons.

Tayshaun showed impressive loyalty. He has only ever worn a Pistons jersey.

These are sad times for Detroit basketball. We shouldn’t be resorting to this with a lineup that had enough to be playing way better than they are now. How come Prince showed more emotion in the collapse against Milwaukee than our coach?

Does Coach Frank have an excuse?

Last season was his “free fuck up.” With our team ninth overall in rebounds, he couldn’t deliver the point to our players (Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, and JMax – plenty of height in the post) to stop the Bucks from hounding the offensive boards. It was getting to announcer Special K.

Against the Bulls in Chicago where we lost 85-82, Nate Robinson came alive. It was so obvious, yet even out of a Detroit timeout, we didn’t key in on Nate and instead propelled his head to almost explode.

Prince, the Pistons, and Detroit fans deserve better.

The Palace Prince never did anything wrong. He always bought into the team, led the way with defense, and was true to being a Piston.

The end of an era.

Goodbye, sweet prince.

Watching some amazing Gs wearing the winged-wheel get pushed around by constant clutching, grabbing, cheap-shotting, illegal hitting, and general dirtiness AGAIN was fucked. They always do it to Detroit because we have the most talented skaters and they can’t catch up. [...]
  • Pistons Could Be Up 2-0… So, why aren’t we? Much like our Detroit Red Wings trailing two games, it’s pretty much now or never. And I know exactly how to fix it.

  • Too Many Teams to Follow So, it’s not the Palestine-Israel conflict, but seeing my Tigers on opening day created a log-jam at centerfield with the Pistons on TNT at the same time.

  • Curry: Why Did We Let This Happen? Once upon a time, millions of years ago, we were allowed to play defense in the NBA. But sometimes (Drumpf, Bernie…) you become so numb to what’s trending, you think it’s actually normal behavior. Call it mob-mentality, “lemmings,” etc. It’s kind of scary to think for yourself. This is the history of man: the white-man [...]
  • Pistons Answer Biggest Test of Season In Chicago, the Detroit Pistons grinded out a tough victory between two teams fighting for their playoff lives. Maybe it was ugly for an outsider, but this was classic Bulls-Pistons basketball. It stayed within five either way pretty much non-stop. We trailed one after one, and led by one at halftime. It was a pretty [...]

Welcome, Wizards

TheSportingSnarf is a website dedicated to the humorous, nuanced, and enjoyable aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon (in varying degrees of print/video length) engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough. We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.
