Eli Zaret , who has spent the last five years with the Pistons organization, doing sideline reporting and other television assignments, has been let go by the team’s new management.
"When they left from Skorich, they moved away from the way we promoted the Pistons," Zaret said. "It was inevitable. I wish them well. We just didn’t fit in."
Zaret doesn’t know what the future holds, other than believing the franchise will delve more into social media.
When I watched Eli Zaret on television, I always thought his smile looked forced. It just looked too big to be genuine.
But while I covered the Dennis Rodman number retirement, Zaret walked by me – no camera on him – and there was that same huge smile.
