Open Practice Koolaidgasm

The Pistons had their open practice on Saturday, here are links to all the relevant stuff out there, and whatever else I could find. Let's get at it:

David Mayo - Detroit Pistons' power forward competition taking shape as the most compelling of training camp

Greg Monroe sported three butterfly strips over a blackened right eye Saturday, courtesy of Detroit Pistons teammate Jason Maxiell, and anyone desiring to start in the Pistons' front court this season should take notice of that competitiveness.

David Mayo - Detroit Pistons' Kim English shows aptitude for compensating when shots don't fall

Only English found a way to compensate among the rookie perimeter group, scoring a couple of times in transition, including a crafty left-handed finish in a multi-player transition opportunity for his team's final basket and the fourth-quarter win, which fellow second-round draft pick Middleton's tired legs wouldn't allow him to snatch away.

The Pistons' scrimmage Saturday at Oakland University was attended by about 1,000 fans. The sides were divided into blue and white teams, with John Loyer coaching the white team and Brian Hill the blue.

The scrimmage was divided into four 6-minute quarters.

Life On Dumars - Pistons Hold Open Practice At Oakland University

Considering the team began practicing just this week, both sides showed significant rust on the offensive and defensive ends of the court. With new teammates and plenty of rookies, that’s understandable, but still something that the coaching staff will need to work on.
