Practice boycott, Rip Hamilton’s benching make Basketball Jones list of the 40 worst moments of the season


Andrew Unterberger of The Basketball Jones recently counted down his top moments of the NBA season and, to everyone’s surprise, a Pistons moment made it because of Tracy McGrady‘s unlikely point guard prowess.

Well, we all knew the flip side was coming. The Pistons had two moments make Unterberger’s top 40 worst moments of the season:

"31. Rip Hamilton benched for trade rumors8. The Pistons’ practice walkout"

I’m actually a little surprised the walkout wasn’t a bit higher, considering that was the only national story involving the Pistons this season. Guys like Gregg Popovich and Stan Van Gundy even felt compelled to comment on it. Thankfully, the Magic made a terrible trade, the Knicks were massacred in their return to the playoffs, the Heat made everyone angry and the Cavs had a horrendous losing streak, all of which helped push the Pistons down the list.
