The Pistons Have Waived Josh Smith, So What Now?

Josh Smith

Today the Detroit Pistons announced they’re waiving forward Josh Smith. Smith is owed $13.5 million this year, plus an additional $27 million through the 2016-17 season. The team with the highest bid can pick him up off of waivers in the next 48 hours, but some have joked (or not), he won’t get picked up because of his onerous deal. While that’s not as ridiculous as it might first sound, there are some likely culprits for his services. Read More »

Video: Brandon Jennings Ignores Open Layup To Miss Mid-Range Jumper

Brandon Jennings

This is the Pistons in a nutshell. During Detroit’s 117-106 loss to the high-octane offense of the Mavericks, Brandon Jennings made an excellent back-cut to the rim and was awarded with a wide-open layup.

Charlie Villanueva

Last Friday, we were invited to SportsBlog.com’s Hanging with the Pro’s which featured current Dallas Maverick and former member of the 2004 UConn Huskie National Championship team, Charlie Villanueva. There was no guided direction for the conversation as many topics were reached, such as the state of the NCAA and Big East, Villanueva’s UConn days, his marriage proposal and his opinion on Adam Silver. It was an inside and uncut look at how an NBA player views a variety of topics, without a swarm of media surrounding him. Read More »

Ibaka Rejects Drummond & Wags The Finger; Later Drummond Posterizes Ibaka

Serge Ibaka, Andre Drummond

This was a story of hubris, reprisal and the ultimate futility of one-on-one battles in a game of five players per side. In the third quarter of last night’s Thunder-Pistons battle, Serge Ibaka rejected an Andre Drummond dunk attempt by swatting it against the backboard. He then turned towards the crowd — not towards Drummond, since that would immediately earn him a technical for taunting — and wagged his finger like Dikembe Mutombo. As you’ll see, the Gods of basketball would grant Drummond a chance to respond to Ibaka’s supercilious display. Read More »
