Notes

  • It’s looking more likely Charlie Villanueva will play again this season. As critical as most are of his game at this point, him playing is a good thing for all parties.
  • Surprising stat via Ian Levy at Hickory High: The Pistons are actually third in the league with nearly three more scoring opportunities per game than their opponents. Only Portland and tonight’s opponent Memphis are better.

    Ideally, I’d like to see Charlie back up J-Max at the 4, and JJ slide over to back up Prince at the 3. JJ could also pick up a few spare minutes at 4. I think JJ’s niche will eventually come as a defensive three, third string 4. Why not start now? I don’t like Charlie V’s game at all, but we desperately need scoring on that second unit. Hopefully Body can make up for some of his deficiencies.

      Body, (lol),  that’s too funny.  Your just missing the No in front of it!  MAybe he can get hot for a week and Joe with his quick trigger can pull off a move!  
      Everybody derserves a second chance in America(bush, obama excluded) and I’ll be curious to see how hard Charlie V works at D and rebounding.  Miracles happen everyday and I remember seeing him get some stops in a dream that hopefully wasn’t in an alternate universe!
