Bill Davidson is cheap

The Pistons beat up on a short-handed Knicks team last night. But this has been accomplished regularly, so no real story here, right?

Wrong. According to HoopsHype, the Knicks not only have the highest team salary in the NBA at over 124 meee-leeon dollars, but their salary total is more than double that of the Pistons.

It's no wonder Isiah wants to pound on Bill Simmons. I wouldn't want my current imcompetence and past failures on public display either.

It pains me to no end to criticize the most important of the original Bad Boys, but let's face facts: if Bill Davidson had followed through on the original plans to give the keys to the Pistons' front office to Isiah after his retirement in 1994, last night's outcome would have been vastly different.
