There's not much going on in the news today in the wake of Wednesday's win over the Heat and the calm before tonight's storm in Indiana, but we didn't want to leave you with nothing today. If you can get away with it, here's some multimedia for you to pass the time:
Flip Saunders interview
MLive.com has WDFN's "Stoney and Wojo" interview with Flip Saunders from yesterday. A couple of interesting points come out: Wojo asks about Carlos Delfino's minutes, and Saunders admits that Tony Delk has cut into his time as the team tries to "fast track" Delk into the team's system for the playoffs. But Saunders also said that he probably should have played Delfino in the Miami game, putting him up against... Antoine Walker. Huh?
I know Walker likes to stray outside and shoot jumpers, but he's still a 6-9, 250-pound power forward. This is the second time I've heard that the Pistons want to stick Delfino on bigger guys, but that big? Have the Pistons been doing this and I've just missed it? Because I'm not sure I've ever actually seen it happen. Granted, Walker (and Al Harrington, who was mentioned previously) aren't your prototypical Karl Malone, Dwight Howard power forwards, but it still seems like a bit of a mismatch in the paint. Though maybe it becomes a moot point down in the paint, because that's when Rasheed and Ben come over to help. But I digress...
There's some other good stuff in that interviewSuch as how Saunders is trying to use his bench down the stretch, the fact that he used to be college roommates with Tony Dungy., so if you have 15 minutes and a set of computer speakers, give it a go.
NBA TV: Pistons All-Access
I stumbled across this video today on YouTube -- it's a three-minute piece from NBA TV on the Pistons, featuring some interesting behind-the-scenes shots from practice and the locker room. Watch for Carlos Arroyo goofing off as well as other forms of merriment and camaraderie. No, there's nothing extraordinarily newsworthy about this clip, it's just a fun way to pass the time -- we wouldn't want you guys to get bored at work, you know?
