I know, I laughed about that too. It sucks for Pope.
I was actually of the opinion that they needed to match and retain him but what the hell do I know?
I sure as shit hope he stays healthy this year. 1 year deal... what the fuck...

the 5/$80 was this summer, I swear I read somewhere they offered him the 4/$80 last summer or fall. There is a chance I'm wrong, I have been before. lol

#Pistons have waived guard Michael Gbinije, who could be a candidate for a two-way contract with the Drive.

Pantry is right, Chauncey is a possibility. I'd definitely do the GM and Coach thing, I don't like the combined titles. Years ago I wanted Laimbeer to coach but his time has passed. I think you leave the coach completely in the hands of the GM.

Dumars had the opportunity to hire Laimbeer but didn't.  Think it was because he was too butthurt from Laimbeer snapping a wet towel at him all those years in the locker room.

Laimbeer. Did he even survive the WNBA? Seems like some cliche answers to run a franchise.

3 WNBA titles coaching Detroit
Doing very well coaching in NYC right now.

I just don't see him coaching in the NBA right now.

If not Chauncey maybe someone off the Pops tree?

Can't see him being any worse than SVG, who has been long over rated.  He lucked into the old Orlando gig and produced nothing.  

Ever watch Chauncey on ESPN pre or post game?  He knows basketball.  Gores is fucking the dog every day he doesn't fire SVG.

I once scored 12 in an IM game - and that was before the 3 point shot.

Pros and cons: Pistons interested in Kyrie Irving, but is he worth it?

The cost

ESPN.com has already played Cavs-Pistons matchmaker.

The website listed the Pistons as one of five Irving destinations with a three-team trade involving the Los Angeles Clippers getting it done.

The Pistons received: Kyrie Irving and Tristan Thompson.

The Clippers received: Andre Drummond, Stanley Johnson and a future Pistons first-round pick.

The Cavaliers received: DeAndre Jordan and Reggie Jackson.

So the cost to get Irving and Thompson is Drummond, Johnson, Jackson and a future first-round pick.

Would the Pistons do this deal?

Would not make that deal.

SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

This. And I'm well past the point of Drummond being someone to build a franchise around.
