Richard “Rip” Hamilton Formally Announces Retirement

An NCAA Champion at UConn and an NBA Champion with your Detroit Pistons, Richard “Rip” Hamilton has officially retired from the game of basketball. He announced the decision yesterday on ESPN after sitting out last season. He said after giving his body a year to rest, he hurt his foot this past October. He has […]

Referees Rain on Prince’s Parade

The Cavaliers came out shooting nothing but three’s, a trend that would continue all night long. That’s all they got. It looked like the NBA All-Star game out there. Detroit stuck with them in the opening quarter, trailing just 30-27. The Palace Prince made his official return: Tayshaun started at small forward. He didn’t waste […]

Reggie Jackson’s Piston Debut

You could see how excited Reggie Jackson was on our bench Friday night against Chicago. With two days to think about his first Pistons start, a fresh start with a franchise that will finally let his talents be displayed, Jackson was boiling over Sunday afternoon. Detroit benefited from another home game at the Palace. Tayshaun […]

Clippers Roll Over Kings

This ain’t no cell phone commercial – these are the L. A. Clippers! My main men, without Blake Griffin, winning 126-99 over Sacramento. Well done.

Da Bulls Go Down

There was an excitement in the air at the Palace of Auburn Hills. They weren’t in uniform yet, but with Reggie Jackson on the bench in street clothes and Tayshaun Prince on his way home, the new found Palace energy was undeniable. Both players’ starting positions were up for grabs. Spencer Dimwiddie and Caron Butler […]

Clippers Take Down Spurs at Staples

119-115 Final. It was 55-52 San Antonio at halftime. Things got ugly (kind of like Pop’s beard and his entire team) when the Spurs elected to spend the whole fourth quarter intentionally fouling our center. It was Hack-A-DeAndre. He wasn’t happy; neither were the Clippers, Doc Rivers, or the crowd. That type of behavior just […]


Welcome home, Tayshaun… we missed you! Look out world – he was the tough, gritty, defensive small forward we were missing, let alone a born Piston, clubhouse leader, and NBA Champion. He can shoot the three, pass, guard anyone, and everyone adores him. This stacks the Pistons in a weak Eastern Conference. With the addition of Reggie Jackson, […]

Detroit Pistons Make Bold Play

Enes Kanter to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kendrick Perkins to the Utah Jazz, Reggie Jackson to the Detroit Pistons – ESPN. In a stunning afternoon trade, Detroit has dealt D.J. Augustin and Kyle Single for Reggie Jackson of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Jackson happened to be rocking a “Bad Boys” had at All-Star Weekend… coincidence? […]

Record-Setting Game Concludes All-Star Weekend

Don’t limit your talent and athleticism with threes! We want to see the best in the world pass the ball to each other and attack the rim! Dunk! Hell of a weekend, NBA. Let’s have a proper second half, dig?

Zach LaVine’s Slam Dunks

Zach LaVine Steals the Show

NBA All-Star Saturday Friday night was fun, but tonight will always be special. Every kid loves the Slam Dunk Contest, and as you get older, it really brings our “little kid” back out. More on that from our new Dunk Champion later. We began the night with a runway competition. That’s right: a fashion show. WTF? Event #1) […]

NBA All-Star Friday

Time to sit back and enjoy the weekend, NBA fans. We’ve all rooted for our teams hard for 50+ games = break time. Friday warmed us up with the usual: Rookie/Sophomore Game, Celebrity Game. Bon Jovi? Kevin Hart won his fourth straight MVP despite another losing effort – it’s his show. He did a nice job […]
