In addition to losing bets, Vince also had a much-needed piece about the Pistons’ development of Sekou Doumbouya. Plus, this observation:
It dawned on me while I was in Grand Rapids that current front office is trying to plant seeds. First time franchise has truly used G-League as development tool. Sekou, Bone, King and Hall are prospects of interest.— Vince_Ells56 (@Vincent_Ellis56) December 8, 2019
And they have a kid stashed overseas.
Hope is 1 or 2 hit.
We can all hope the Pistons get some hits.
Duncan Smith at Forbes examined the Pistons’ play in the same time phase we’re all interested in - their last 10 games.
The Athletic’s James Edwards talked to a bunch of opposing coaches about Luke Kennard’s breakout, and they said nice things about Luke.
And, of course, check out the most recent DBB Podcast, from Ben Gulker and yours truly.
Enjoy the game tonight, y’all.
