He was going to start all of them today anyway. He said he was going with every posssible starting combination before settling on a final decision.

Very positive move by the Pistons today in getting rid of Will Bynum. They didn't get much in return (Joel Anthony) but this is addition by subtraction.

this move is only slightly less exciting than the drafting of andre drummond. Bynum was that fucking terrible.

I see that Brandon Jennings has continued his awful shooting today. 12-49 on FG attempts this preseason.
Not to sound negative about the Pistons, I just don't like Jennings haha

I'm not a Jennings fan either. Inconsistent and immature. Wouldn't surprise me if Augustin takes over the starting job at some point.

Stan Van Gundy agree's that they should remove the max salary for players.

That, combined with a team salary cap, would probably destroy any super teams being created.

Then you might have a crazy owner that is willing to spend the $$$ to create a super, super team with CP3, Wade, LeBron, Bosh, Howard, & Melo.

In competitive sports, I like a salary cap. In the NFL, it works fine.

I am all for parity in the NBA. I love the college game and wish the NBA was more like that. It is annoying watching two players being fed the ball on 90% of the teams. The Spurs of today are rare, and it is unfortunate that other teams don't copy their smooth, flowing, team oriented play.

Been saying it for years...The NBA needs to structure contracts like the NFL.
It may sound harsh and favor the owner but too damn bad.

The NBA would be a hell of lot more competitive & entertaining if these fat cats knew their job/contract was on the line.

Huh? most of them try to. The game isn't the iso fest of 10 years ago. It is more rare to have a team where two players are being fed the ball. Most offenses are 7 different variations of the pick and roll with corner threes. The Spurs just do it better than anyone else, nobody is in the same zip code as far as that.

The NBA game blows the extremely boring overofficiated/overcoached college game. College has the single elimination thing going for them, but the game has suffered, it plays more like a 90's NBA game than the current NBA. Its nowhere near as fun as it was 20 years ago.

My biggest wish for the NBA is that they should let teams play defense again and didn't ban and fine players for the getting a little physical. The NBA of old was so much more intense and emotional and people loved that about it.

College games at least have the intensity from the players (and coaches) that you rarely see in the NBA anymore, even in the playoffs.

Yeah, for folks who were around to watch the NBA in the 80's, those were the glory days. And it was much more physical. The Bad Boys would all foul out in the 1st quarter in today's game.

Dinwiddie is going to be a nice player. Likely a steal that he fell so far in the draft due to the injury.

Yeah he supposedly looked really good in his first game action of his career. Got 8 points and 6 assists in 16 minutes (which is really great stats for 16 min).

Would be pretty fantastic if KCP and Dinwiddie turned out to be plus players to pair with Drummond.

It was the glory days if you were one of the top 3-4 teams. People forget just how terrible the other %80 of the league was.

only 5 franchises made the NBA finals during the entire decade. Five. The majority of the NBA was stuck in perpetual ineptitude until the Lakers and Celtics finally used up their seemingly inexhaustible supply of hall of famers.

They added 2 expansion teams during Detroit's first title season, and then they added two more during their second. Biggest over-expansion in major sports history outside of the NHL.
