PANDA Tournament ELITE EIGHT - Vote Now!!

Welcome to the Elite Eight of 

The Piston Acquisition and New Development Awards Tournament

The tournament where users vote on future outcomes for the upcoming off-season.  In the last round we had lots of surprising action 

Second Round Highlights

  • 'Draft Perry Jones' defeats 'Dumars being fired'?!?!  Seriously??? I get that he does have a pretty good upside, but it's almost as if users here think he should be compaired with Rasheed Wallace.  They are PF’s the same size,weight and wingspan (in college) both shoot 3s,both play on the wing on offense and in the low post on Defense,both have a great face-up game,have great foot work.will shoot a post-up fade away and are guys with a nasty side.  This is without question.  But is this addition more important than ousting Joe D?  Maybe a lot of people have not yet decided to jump off the band wagon. Next Round:  A rookie Perry Jones is a good matchup against an improved Austin daye, a skinny 6-11 forward who actually shot 3s in college.
  • Jonas continues to roll, taking out Derrick "Don't call me a power forward" Williams.  Next Round:  He is going to face a similar energy power forward in Kenneth Faried.  Faried just took out Kuester being fired by huge margin, which is probably voters not wasting their vote on the coaches inevitable ouster.
  • The failed Cleveland trade meets the downtown stadium next round as last week's voting sets up a match up between Dumping Rip and a future first round pick and Mike Ilitch buying the team.  This should make for an exciting match up, as should the rest for this week.

Side Bracket

Last week I made up a couple of match ups from what was going on around DBB that week just to keep things interesting.  This week I am going to do the same, and they will be down below the rest, but I will clearly mark them as not part of the regular matchups.

  • Retire Rasheed Wallace’s Jersey               Or           Retire Rip Hamilton’s Jersey
  • Stuckey gets this contract            Or           Draft either Irving or Walker or Knight or Fredette and throw them into the fire

The Jersey Retirement was the biggest story of the week and it made you wonder who was next.  The Bad Boys are pretty much out of potential retirees, and retiring anyone from the teal era will hurt our efforts to pretend like those years never happened.  From the last Championship Ben Wallace is a lock, and given that they retired Rodman's Jersey despite only being here for seven years it sort of sets the precedent for Chauncey to get retired as well.  So after that, who's next?  I put it between Rip and Rasheed, you make the choice, or don't and just say neither.  

In three months the Pistons will seek to answer their question mark at Point Guard, and they will probably look to one of three options, resigning stuckey to a reasonable contract, developing a young point guard from the draft, or doing something stupid (perhaps prompting Pistons fans to set themselves on fire in protest).  While some combination of the three is possible, which of the first two options would you prefer?

The Elite Eight: Voting Procedures

I looked online for a way to do a proper vote, but I think the best way to do it is right here in the comments.  Copy and Paste the table below into your comment and go through each of this weeks match ups and select which of the two options you would rather have the Pistons do this off-season and delete the other one.
