First, some recent stuff from DBB:
-- Rodney Stuckey says he's all healed and should be ready to go on Friday against the Jazz. This is certainly beneficial to the Pistons.
-- Rev provided an awesome updated look at the Drummond vs. Howard comparison. Drummond fares well.
-- Sean took a look at the emergence of rookie Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
-- Ben answered some questions for the Spanish DBB.
-- At Grantland, Zach Lowe says The Pistons Shouldn’t Be This Bad in a very good article wherein he suggests one way of fixing things is to trade ... JOSH SMITH. But ... but ... he's our No. 1 Power Forward!
-- Feel like piling on Josh Smith? I don't, but you might. He said the below [via Freep]:
"It's easy to use me as a scapegoat," he told USA TODAY Sports. "Because I do so much on the court and I'm so passionate about winning and because I'm a competitor, my game can get misunderstood by people who don't understand."
Okayyyy, killlll him (figuratively).
-- Terry Foster at The Detroit News wonders if the Pistons would be better with Michigan's TREY BURKE! DBB knows the answer to that one. First-hand look at Burke on Friday night.
-- At halftime of a game last week, Brandon Jennings was on pace to break the record for assists in a single game (30) set by his former coach, Scott Skiles, but Jennings sucked in the second half. Coincidentally, there is a song about their relationship in Milwaukee. For real. [H/T MichiganBillsFan84 for posting in the FanShots]
-- Did you know Coach in the show 'New Girl' is a Pistons fan? Apparently a 'Pistons butt bump' is a thing we Pistons fans do. Good show.
-- Everybody watches 'The Bachelor', right? Cassandra Ferguson, one of the 27 contestants for Juan Pablo, is a former Pistons cheerleader and ... she has a child with Rodney Stuckey!
-- Mo Cheeks on Andre Drummond's playing time. Match ups and such.
-- Here are The Most Unenthusiastic Detroit Pistons Introductions You May Ever See via Need4Sheed.
AROUND THE NBA:
-- The Rockets followed up a 79-point first half with a 19-point second half. NBA record for point differential.
-- The Heat have lost three straight and Greg Oden dunked without breaking anything. NBApocalypse.
-- How do you feel about the NBA All-Star jerseys? It seems most do not like.
-- What do you think about this?
Nate Robinson: "If I can be the first player to play for every team in the league, I want to do it."— Geoff Lepper (@geofflepper) January 16, 2014
24 to go, including the Pistons.
