Jonathan Tjarks builds up a 7 foot case of Koolaid on why the Moose and the Brahma can be the next NBA dynasty, and all the things Joe D can do NOT to mess it up! -------------------- my favorite quote: "Surround a 7’0 who can score with enough shooters and you will have a high-level offense.

A co-worker is eating pancakes for 24 hours for charity, and a $50 donation allows you to choose the topic for one of his podcast episodes. I'm already in for $50, and I plan on making them talk about the greatness of the original Bad Boy era Pistons. And I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if the DBB community comes together for another $50 donation or two and makes them talk about other eras in Pistons history (ie, the Teal era, the Goin' to Work era)? We could pool donations in the comments here and coordinate who makes the donation. What do you think?
