The Majors Detroit:
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 that brought in Phil Jackson to help. Boo this man!
Most fans thought Brian Shaw was a given, seeing Jackson’s past ties to him. Shaw was also a man looking for a job, and the Pistons didn’t pull the trigger. (I’m sure we’ll hear more later)
But onto the Pistons and Mo Cheeks
First, who wants to coach this team? They don’t want to pay big time coach money and they don’t have a roster a big time coach would want.
And as for job security… this job has none. Frankly the body count behind Joe D rivals Rambo.
Not to say the roster is terrible, it’s bad, but there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Greg Monroe and An
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
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...
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...
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.
Insert your own tacky Rihanna joke here.Allow me to set the scene for you. 7-foot Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond is going up for a dunk. The only thing that stands in his way is 6-foot R&B singer and all around terrible human being Chris Brown. He does about as well as you’d expect on the block, considering Drummond is … ugh, it’s impossible to write up a story...
Joe Dumars, Pistons president of basketball operations, will introduce Maurice Cheeks as the team's new head coach Thursday at 11 a.m.
Watch live streaming video of the press conference right here:
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...
When Phil Jackson talks -- or Tweets – people listen.
Whether people actually believe him or not is a completely different story, particularly when the former head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls and arguably the greatest basketball coach of all-time confesses that his coaching days are over.
How many times have we heard this song?
Jackson said as...
The Nuggets put themselves in the position of having to search for a coach, having fired reigning NBA Coach of the Year George Karl, but it looks like everything might work out for them.
Lionel Hollins, one of the most widely-sought free agent coaches on the market after he and the Grizzlies parted ways this week, and Brian Shaw, an esteemed assistant coach with the Pacers and Lakers...
A person with knowledge of the details says the Brooklyn Nets' coaching decision is down to Jason Kidd and Brian Shaw.
Kidd met with general manager Billy King on Monday and Shaw is expected to meet with the team Wednesday. The person tells The Associated Press that the team has just those two candidates.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the coaching...
Nets to hire Jason Kidd
The Nets spent a long day interviewing Pacers assistant Brian Shaw. They listend to what Shaw had to offer and the ideas he had for the future of the Nets. They listened.
Shaw was once again a bridesmaid and not the bride as another interview fell short for Shaw and he was passed over in his quest to become a head coach.
The Nets have gone with...
