Found March 12, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
The Pistons are as broke on entertainment value as Bill Laimbeer was on the ability to elevate. They have paraded out such acts jokes like Coolio, Martha Reeves and the Vanhags and Debbie Gibson (still hot for the record) with hope that people will stay passed halftime.  They even sacrificed Brandon Knight nearly get killed by DeAndre Jordan just to make a top play on SportsCenter. The halftime shows are hot trash, the product on the floor is barely better and the food quality at The Palace makes you consider a stop at McDonald’s prior to the game. The best thing going is a guy that they pay solely to look at ticket stubs.  His name is Shannon Sailes and he’s the star of The Palace and it has nothing to do with ticket stubs.  Randomly during games, Sailes will be put on the jumbotron with tunes pumping and he’ll dance his face off.  He’s 45 now and has been teaching himself how to dance since he was five. He recently spoke with Jim Schaefer of the Detroit Free Press about his prolific dance moves.  Read the full transcipt here. Here’s Shannon getting his swerve on at the Knicks/Pistons game last week.  Hey Pistons, give this gentleman an uptick in pay.  In fact, take some off Charlie V’s check and shoot it Shannon’s way.

One-minute song about DeAndre Jordan pulverizing Brandon Knight (AWFUL VIDEO)

This song is on here because it’s irrelevant in that people are still talking about DeAndre Jordan dunking on, all over and through Pistons guard Brandon Knight on Sunday.  Now, that doesn’t mean that I recommend that you watch this video.  In fact, this is the first non-injury video ever posted on IASID that I recommend you don’t watch.

DeAndre Jordan vs. Harrison Barnes: Whose dunk was better? (video)
