A round-up of what you could've been reading this weekend instead of a stale DBB:
- My latest from HOOPSWORLD:
In certain matchups against some of the league's bigger centers, Detroit's undersized frontcourt may be exposed. That's where Mohammed will prove useful, taking much of the abuse to keep the rest of the big men fresh. But aside from those situations, starting Wallace and McDyess will allow the Pistons to keep their best players on the court more often, which makes a lot more sense than giving their one true center, who may only be the fifth-best big man on the roster, a starting job simply for the sake of convention.
- Pistons fans still believe ... even if no one else does.
- ESPN's Marc Stein thinks the Pistons did more to help their fortunes this summer than every Eastern Conference team that failed to trade for Kevin Garnett.
- Not surprisingly, Only the Bulls thinks Marc Stein is full of crap, which isn't a surprise: it's easy for those unfamiliar with the majesty/destruction of Johnson/Maxiell to understate their projected impact this year. Things will be much more clear in a couple of months.
- Is Rasheed Wallace's bald spot actually a sign from God? (via Quest to Be Remembered)
- Carlos Delfino is in a better place.
- Let's just say this won't be making Isiah Thomas' career highlight reel.
- Larry Brown, almost a Celtic.
