Thoughts?

I'm happy for him, but he's going to have his work cut out for him in Detroit.

I guess this means Rip is off the market and they'll resign Prince. :D

If Frank has any sort of idea of what has been going on there, he should be pushing to get them out asap.

Said why is he getting a look when a black guy could have gotten the job.

I dont want to play the "Its 2011 everything is awesome" card, because thats silly and I think the NFL CBA drama has racial components to it. But damn

Brandon Knight, Greg Monroe, Jonas Jarebko.

Not exactly anybody's idea of a big three, but it's a start.

Pistons are hamstrung by Dumars' stupidity until 2014, so L will have to make some kind of use of Gordon and Villanueva. Better than what Thorn gave him, I guess.

Do you remember who it was?

I guess I shouldn't be surprised as ESPN is full of ignorant buffoons.
