In case you missed it…
FREEP- Jonny Flynn of Syracuse had a rather fun and laid back visit with Joe D and company.
FREEP (Vince Ellis’ blog) - Virginia Commonwealth point guard Eric Maynor is saying all the right stuff about the Pistons.
New York Post (Via FREEP) - Peter Vescey says Carlos Boozer will either be playing for the Nets or the Pistons next season.
PistonsNation- Where You At Rip? Boost Mobile video.
-But I’ve heard conflicting reports. Anyways, this is obviously not a big deal for the Pistons, but for the fans, it is. I have loved the guy from day one and was actually a fan of him back when he played for Charlotte. Walter is definitely an NBA caliber talent, just not the most conventional one, or rather, not what most NBA teams are looking for in a dependable backup.
- A comment on the Free Press article about the possible departure had me laughing, out loud: “does this mean there are no more finga rolls from da free throw line?”
-If Walter does in fact depart the NBA I will concoct a poem about him, similar to these I’ve written about past and present NBA ballers. Scratch that, I’m gonna write it anyways.
Need4Sheed- Very neat Alex Acker video from May 21st. Acker seems like a real down to earth guy and hopefully he can stick in the league for a long time.
NBA Fanhouse- Ben Wallace contemplating retirement. Wallace is and always will be my favorite Piston of all time.
NBA Playoffs 2009 Tumblr- LeBron James on his backside.
Silver Screen and Roll- Birdman got some moves.
Curse Of Cleveland- “I’m not going to dwell much on stats from Game 6, because let’s face the music. You don’t have to look at too many stats from this series to show that the Magic dominated it. They won in six games, stole Game 1 on the Cavaliers’ homecourt where they were 44-2 at that point, and would have swept the Cavaliers if not for the best shot of LeBron James’s amazing career.”
Denver Stiffs- “I didn’t quite grasp how emotionally and physically exhausted I was having followed the Nuggets so closely since October until I sat down on the couch to watch Saturday night’s Magic/Cavaliers game. I was fighting back the eyelids from shutting throughout the first half, eventually caved into my exhaustion and didn’t wake up until “Law & Order” or whatever the hell they put on TNT late night was on. I had to watch ESPN’s “NBA Fastbreak” just to see the highlights of the Cavs‘ embarrassing series finale implosion and LeBron James classless exit. ”
Third Quarter Collapse- “Dwight Howard stepped up to the plate last night and played, arguably, the best game of his young NBA career – 40 points, 14 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block. Cleveland had no answer for Superman, as he dominated single-coverage and punished double & triple teams throughout the evening. Truly an epic performance.”
Via Hail Mary Jane - “No Kobe/LeBron Final…Sorry Everyone”
” I wonder if they will remake this puppet commercials with Dwight Howard instead of LeBron.”
