AUBURN HILLS -- It has become a ritual of sports -- something like the Olympics or the World Cup.
Every two years, the media of Detroit gather at the Palace for the grand unveiling of the new Pistons coach. The ceremony is the same -- the Palace employees gather in the atrium and applaud the new coach, while Joe Dumars talks about how convinced he is that this is the right man to bring the franchise back to its glory days.
The only thing that changes in the name of the coach and the technology level of the presentation. This time, while Maurice Cheeks was introduced, two screens behind him scrolled pictures of him coaching along with shots of the few players still in good standing -- Brandon Knight, Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe, Rodney Stuckey, Kyle Singler and Jonas Jerebko.
Even Dumars acknowledged that what happened Thursday morning was nothing more than a show.
"People are going to be skeptical about this hire until Mo proves himself," he said. "In this busin...
BEST OF MAXIM
EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS
Pistons forward Andre Drummond has an up and down rookie campaign. When he was able to get on the court, he showed flashes of elite athleticism that has Detroit fans hopeful for the future, especially with Greg Monroe developing with Drummond as well. For some reason, Lawrence Frank did not get the two hopeful future stars much playing time together. In related news, Lawrence Frank...
R&B singer Chris Brown has been known to be pretty good at basketball. Brown was somewhere in L.A. getting in a good run when Detroit Pistons second year center Andre Drummond arrived.
Brown must have told Drummond he could stop him from dunking on him, because a few hours later, there was a Vine of Drummond dunking on Brown something nasty.
Both men say it was a joke and planned...
As great as it was to see Pistons center Andre Drummond use his 6-foot-10, 270 pound frame to knock singer Chris Brown on his ass during a little late night pick-up hoops in a Los Angeles gym, the whole thing turned out to be a set-up, staged for our entertainment. I don’t know about you, but I was more entertained when I thought Drummond posterizing the hell out of Brown was real...
Stop the presses! The Detroit Pistons have hired Maurice “Mo” Cheeks…
Well this is the point Detroit Basketball is at, the Pistons hired the equivalent of the Blue Light Special of coaches. Immediately I thought, come on Gores! (for those that lost interest years ago, the Pistons have a new owner and his name is in fact Tom Gores) This is it? You’re a West Coast billionaire...
Joe Dumars, Pistons president of basketball operations, will introduce Maurice Cheeks as the team's new head coach Thursday at 11 a.m.

Detroit Pistons stud Andre Drummond and Chris Brown totally staged this dunk, but that didn't keep Drummond from absolutely posterizing the rapper.
Tweet One of the most promising rookies of the 2012-2013 NBA season was Detroit Pistons big man Andre Drummond. Despite having a ton of question marks surrounding him in the draft, he showed a ton of potential while on the floor in Detroit. An injury kept him out for a long chunk of time in [...]
Pistons second-year big man Andre Drummond dunked all over artist/entertainer/loser Chris Brown because Chris Brown is a twerp.
Honestly, I’m still trying to figure out why rapper/singer Chris Brown thought it would be a good idea to attempt to block a dunk by Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond.
However, I don’t question Chris Brown’s motives if it can give us this clip….
A nation of Rihanna fans thank you Andre Drummond…
Pistons’ Andre Drummond joined Chris Brown and Kyrie Irving at a 24 Hour Fitness for some hoops on Wednesday and Brown was brave enough sacrifice his body and let the big man throw down his best poster dunk. It was obviously set up, but entertaining nonetheless.
A lot of people dislike Chris Brown, so I am sure they will get some enjoyment out of this.
Drummond wanted people to know it was just for fun. The Pistons are hoping they can get more production like this from Drummond next year.
H/T Sports Grid and Ball Don’t Lie
I’m not sure what brought the pair together at the same gym in Los Angeles but Detroit Pistons big man Andre Drummond and rapper Chris Brown looked to engage in a little one-on-one this past Wednesday night.
During the session according to Yahoo! Sports (and now Drummond and Brown himself) the two decided to get a video of the second year NBA player dunking over the Brown. And...
