Chauncey Billups eyes the front office

There's no doubt in my mind he'd be an outstanding GM. Just make sure he's got a crack analytics guy. Should Dumars survive this year, I would expect GM to take some sort of FO role over the summer. The problem is I really don't expect Dumars to, unless a miracle happens. Like they get the 7th seed and actually take 2 games off of Miami. I love Chauncey, like Sheed and others, want him to stay in the organization. He's a Piston for life and deserves a crack at a FO gig over the summer.

John Loyer yells a lot

"I don’t know what we’re going to do in second halves, because he’s always losing his voice in the first half. We’re going to have to help him coach a little bit in second halves — with his press conferences after games, too."

Detroit Pistons make 1st Take

Talking about firing Cheeks and past coaches giving Dumars a bad rep. Haven't seen that outlook on any of the Pistons sites. What do the more knowledgeable people at DBB, make of this?

Regner: Next Pistons coach should be Billups

Someone agrees with us that Billups should be the next coach and with J Kidd getting the nod in Brooklyn I think chances may be pretty high on this one.

Mo Cheeks Fired According to a world of sources

This s just one of the major outlets that have reported Cheeks has been fired. ESPN, Yahoo, World News, USA Today and many many more have released it online less then an hour after the event occurred. You heard it on DBB here or my Fsnpost first! :) Here's the Bleacher Report link.

Data For A Better Basketball Team - Interview With Raptors Analytics Guys

Here's an interview by one of the guys with the MaRS Data Catalyst team (I work with them through my day job) and Alex Rucker, a founding partner of KBAR Consulting LLC and, at present, the senior analytics consultant for the Toronto Raptors. It's a quick read, but gives some neat insight as to how hard the Raptors are working when it comes to advanced metrics.

The Pistons, The Bobcats, Greg Monroe, and Ben Gordon

Well I tried to do a little vetting having never been to this site before but the author seems legit having a BA in journalism and having worked at ESPN in the stats department. So take as you will.
