Those odds sound about right I think next year on the east side will be between Miami And the Pistons.

Terry I saw your post on Nate mcmillan. I know this team is built on character but When you have had one of if not the best coach it would be a tough sell. Similar to riding a ferrari and then asked to ride in an eclipse. Who knows it might work out. Who do you like between Nate and Flip.

The Lakers seem a tad high on that list, all things considered.

I think the next coach of the Pistons should be Flip Saunders. I think Billups likes him and will sell him to the team. He coached a talented yet disfunctional team in Minnesota. I think it will be calmer around here.

Are you sure there is no chance of Larry coming back. I remember when Boudini broke the story on Carlisle leaving and you fellow colleagues of Wdfn clowned him even folks on Xyt dogged him as well turned he was right. So What if Larry says I want to stay after recharging his batteries

I think there are two sleepers on the list that should move up.

Chicago and Denver.

Both were affected by injuries late in the year. Both have some serious and upcoming talent.

I think Chicago will make noise in the East. Their biggest problem is Scott Skiles. I have never been impressed with him as a coach, or player for that matter.

One other thing, I look at the Utah Jazz at the bottom of the list and just have to ask, "What other coach would have been given such a free pass as Sloan?"

Look at Seattle, talk about no respect. After their playoff run I would think they would be a little higher.

Blogger $$Pryceless$$ said...

wow. lol.

some of those teams placed before Seattle makes you just wonder...

New Jersey, Memphis, Cavs and Houston?

Who knows what happens with Ray Allen and the other free agents on the team, but dang, the took the Spurs to like 6 and get no love.

Obviously a lot of teams are going to make changes, so it will be interesting to see, the odds will surely be different.

Beyond the Pistons, I'm really interested in seeing what moves the Pacers will make to their team. Ron Artest should have a huge season next year, if he can keep his cool, which I think will happen. Keep in mind before his season ended....he was droppin' 25, 7 and 4 a game---and I think he had 18 points in the first quarter of that Nov. 19 game, he ate us up. Will they keep him? What will they do to their bench?

**At Conseco, they don't sell Ron Artest jerseys in the arena, pretty wild, may not mean much, but it makes you wonder.

So terry, any news on what you want to do with this site?

5:43 PM

Blogger T Foster said...

I believe we are going to do a web site. It will be a sports inferno web site. I am debating if I should do my own web site in addition to that because I have a lot of Detroit News business not related to the radio.

Terry - Do you think Flip can help develop Darko? He's obviously got experience with working with teen big men (Garnett.)

Blogger Robbie said...

Terry- According to a source that works within the organization, the pistons are considering two trades. 1: rip, darko for garnett, 2: rip, arroyo for paul pierce.
Any truth to these?

Okay Darko and Rip for KG. I don;t see Minnesota agreeing to that. I do think KG is definelty a team player and would blend in well but Rip I still think is only going to get better. If you look at Rips progression he has gotten better. I think this off season he is going to work on creating his own shot of the dribble Also I think he is going to work on his 3 point shooting alot more look for him to hang with Reggie Miller. Paul Pierce I feel would be a cancer on this team. This guy is wierd (although I give him props for surviving his stab episode) I think joe will try and bring Jalen Rose who I feel would have made a difference on this team.

I have not heard any of those trade rumors.
I would hope the Rip and Darko rumors for Kevin Garnett are true. That would definitely help the Pistons. I would not trade for Paul Pierce. He is a waste to me. He is a talented guy but is he a winner? My answer is no.

Blogger T Foster said...

To be honest I am not sure if Flip can reach Darko. I just know darko will get his chance to sink or swim no matter who is coaching.

Blogger Detroithoosier said...

Terry, could my site and your site still be partners? Or are you not intrested.

1:27 PM

Blogger The_Real_Right_Way said...

come on, Garnett for Rip and Darko.

I don't think Kevin McHale is that stupid.

Darko has no trade value, however, I understand Shawn Bradley has announced his retirement, they might need someone to keep that 12th seat on the bench warm.

Garnett is a franchise player get real.

Wow, I just noticed Philly on the list. Total lack of respect. I hope Webber can regain some mobility and leaping ability and prove them wrong.

Sad to say he looked helpless in the playoffs. Philly was playing with 4 guys on the court.

Anonymous Nathan said...

Yeah, weird list for sure.

I agree with TRRW about Denver, Philly, and Chicago.

I have to wonder how Miami is ahead of Detroit, even though there's a good chance that they'll be panicking to find a point guard considering some team will probably pay Damon Jones too much money to play.

I think that Cleveland is too high. I trust dan Gilbert will screw it up Same with the clippers Donald Sterling has to be the worst and maybe the Cheapest owner in the NBA I take that back the Hawks takes the cake. Maybe it is time for the NBA to shrink

Blogger Erick said...

Hawks at the same odds as the 2nd year in existance Bobcats? What's that say about your franchise?
