For those who have been fortune enough to either play with or help coach Jose Calderon during 7-year NBA career, the one word you often hear used should not come as a shock: professional. Regardless if he was running the show in Toronto, fending off annual trade rumors and now even during his early days in Detroit, Calderon remains a true pro since being traded to the Pistons back on January 30 -- and this pro has stepped up. Over the course of the five games that Calderon has played for Detroit, he has gone for 23 points and 10 assists against Milwaukee, scored 15 points in his 27-minute debut versus the Los Angeles Lakers and nearly notched another double-double in Monday’s loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Calderon finished with 13 points and 9 assists. Oh, and he had four steals and four rebounds to round on the night. But the one question that comes to mind, however, is will Calderon stick it out in the Motor City? “The whole summer last year I felt like a trade ...

Back injury has Pistons rookie Andre Drummin’ the bongos

When asked why he was playing the bongos, Drummond replied, “This is...

The current state of the Detroit Pistons

So here we are a little more than half way thru the 2012-2013 NBA season and with the All-Star break coming up I’d like to take this time to take a look at the current state of Pistons basketball.

Pistons terrible in 105-86 loss to the Hornets

At this point no one is claiming that the Pistons are a good team but you’d at least expect more of an effort against one of the NBA’s worst.

Detroit Pistons Having Trouble Selling Tickets & More Screencapping Fun!

Helen Zeller Inspires Us All

You want an early buy (or a repeat)? Throw down some nickels and make a purchase of one Tyler Zeller. His 16 points yesterday were the first since January 19, but the 9 rebounds, 4 assists and a block were not out of the ordinary.
