Pistons’ Josh Harrellson gets massive grizzly bear tattoo (PIC)

Pistons big man Josh Harrellson Instagram’d a picture of his HUMONGOUS grizzly bear tattoo Thursday morning. Why a grizzly bear?  We have no idea.  Was he hoping to get dealt to the Memphis Grizzlies at the NBA trade deadline Thursday?  Possibly.  Is he honoring the nearby Oakland University Golden Grizzlies?  Doubtful.  Does he enjoy staring big scary-looking bears when...

Josh Smith leads Detroit Pistons past NBA’s best

Trying to bounce back from yet another tough loss where they blew yet another fourth quarter lead, the Detroit Pistons entered an arena where they hadn’t won since January 29, 2008. The Indiana Pacers also owned the NBA’s best record and were unbeaten at home. Piece of cake. The Pistons started off just like they did last night against the Portland Trail Blazers, by isolating...

Detroit Pistons: Who is Josh Harrellson?

Josh Harrellson (photo credit: Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images) At first glance, Josh Harrellson just looks like one of those big-bruising, nonathletic, and inexpensive centers to play the remaining minutes of blowout games.

Detroit Pistons 92, Chicago Bulls 75: Highlights

Brandon Jennings led the way for the Pistons with 33 points; he was the only starter to hit...

Current home stretch is huge for Detroit Pistons

Isn’t it funny to think that the Detroit Pistons would be fourth in the Eastern Conference right now if they snagged just one win in their back-to-back with the Atlanta Hawks? In a so far strange start to the NBA season, the Pistons have benefited from lackluster and demoralizing starts by other Eastern Conference foes. Brooklyn and New York are an astoundingly futile 7-20 combined...

Josh Harrellson makes recent impact as only Detroit Piston without guaranteed contract

Josh Harrellson didn't directly answer when the Detroit Pistons' 15th man, at least by contract status, was asked last week if he has Jan. 10, 2014 circled on his calendar.
