Maurice Cheeks introductory press conference on Thursday

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE

Meet Mo as the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons on Thursday at 11 a.m.

Hired on Monday evening, Maurice Cheeks will be officially introduced to the media and fans as the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons on Thursday morning, 11 a.m. ET. The press conference will be streamed live on Pistons.com for those of you who will be at work during that time, and don't feel like working.

If it's like Lawrence Frank's press conference, or any of the past press conferences really, Cheeks will promise to change the culture of the Pistons and Dumars will say that he sees Cheeks as a long-term coach.

"You have to stand for what you believe in: This is who we are, this is what we do. And if not, there's gotta be accountability and consequences. That's coaching," Frank said that day.

Cheeks will probably intimate something similar, as we get a better feel for his personality and perhaps his coaching style. We may also learn a little bit about how he will fill out the rest of his staff. It should be a fluff-filled occasion.

Again, tune in on Thursday at 11 a.m.
