Pistons nickname John Kuester “Sean Penn” – as in “Dead Man Walking”

ESPN’s Marc Stein:

Despite the justified heat Detroit’s vets got for their unpardonable mutiny, that apparently hasn’t stopped some of them from privately referring to their coach as Sean Penn … as in "Dead Man Walking."

After the Philly boycott, I think a perception began to spread that the Pistons’ veterans are jerks. Making fun of someone who, after years of working his way up the ladder, finally got a chance to prove he could handle the peak of his profession does nothing to erase that perception.
