Ben Gordon's Role

"It wouldn’t surprise me if Gordon is scoring 20 a game next season. And if he is, I expect the Pistons would be significantly better for it." - Langlois If he gets traded, I agree with both statements.

Why won’t Pistons announcers use Monroe’s nickname, Moose?

John (Westland, Mich.): Why won’t Pistons announcers use Monroe’s nickname, Moose? The fans are using it? Langlois: Pistons coaches and his teammates use it, John, but I haven’t sensed much enthusiasm for "Moose" among fans. The acquisition of a nickname is usually an organic process – it has to happen on its own. And sometimes, the nickname a player comes to be known by in public is different than what he’s known by in the smaller circles of his friends or teammates. Magic Johnson’s teammates didn’t call him Magic, for instance, at least not when they were in their world. To the Lakers of the ’80s, he was Buck. I’m not sure any nickname will ever catch on with Monroe. He just doesn’t seem like a nickname kind of guy. Pistons Mailbag - Thursday, February 10, 2011

JD: Only if it addresses exactly what you’re looking for. It may be deep, but it may not be deep in the areas you’re looking for. For us, I can’t say we’ve pinpointed any one particular person – man, that’s the mid-level guy. We’ve done that in the past and we’ve known it early on who we were going to go after. I can’t sit here and tell you that right now.

Only a few teams in the league cause such a reaction, San Antonio foremost among them. When you pluck Chauncey Billups and Ben Wallace off the scrap heap and they become All-Stars, when you trade a volume scorer like Jerry Stackhouse for a Rip Hamilton about whom there were many doubts and he too becomes an All-Star, when you draft Tayshaun Prince down in the 20s of a weak draft and watch him outperform all but a handful of those taken ahead of him, that’s the rep you earn.

Keith Langlois' True Blue Pistons piece on Joe Dumars earning himself a rep for picking up what appear to be dirt in the rough, but wind up being diamonds. I've noticed a lot of people knocking the Wilcox signing around the 'net. They can go ahead and doubt the signing all they want, but we've all seen this before.
