Video: Kyle Singler leveled by Kwame Brown, doesn’t care, hits three

In his first career start, Kyle Singler is having a great night for the Pistons with 13 points on 6-for-12 shooting against the Philadelphia 76ers as I type this. But in the first half, Singler made a vintage Singler from his Duke days play, colliding head-first with Kwame Brown’s ample backside, getting up, staying in the game and knocking down an open three moments later. He’s brought elements of toughness, energy and shooting to the starting lineup that, to this point, had been missing from that unit.

Also funny — how the couple of vocal complainers about Singler getting the starting spot tonight from earlier today have been strangely silent during tonight’s game. Jodi? Sebastian? Where you bros at tonight?

    This guy embodies Detroit Pistons basketball.  Every championship caliber team has at least one or two of these types of players.  Let’s hop we don’t ship him out for a couple hundred thousand dollars in cap relief….

    He’s actually outplaying Jerebko. Although, perhaps JJ would be better if he was actually playing small forward like he should be.

    Singler is a better poised player, plus he doesn’t hesitate when he shoots his jump shots alla  Jerebko,Monroe,Stuckey and Tay. Hopefully Stuckey stays sick for a while so we can see if Singler can produce some consistency through the next few games then we can pull Stuckey off the bench of trade him to Sacramento.

      Why Sacramento? So they can go with an all-shoot-first guard starting five of Isaiah Thomas, Aaron Brooks, Rodney Stuckey, Tyreke Evans and Marcus Thornton with Jimmer as Sixth Man?

        Man, I had always hoped Stuckey would be part of the Detroit renaissance, but it looks like he’s a square peg in a round hole here. Hopefully in the 2013 draft we can grab a franchise-type 2-guard, b/c that’s the one spot we for sure need an upgrade (Knight may become a good NBA PG, Moose & Drummond should secure the paint, and Jerebko/Singler is an adequate SF rotation). Pickings out of college will be slim this year…maybe Shabazz Muhammed in the top 5, or Marcus Smart in the top 10…

    singler is a perfect fit, sg or sf, he’s just a baller. As a shooting guard, he can shoot. As a small forward he keeps the offense flowing. Jerebko hasnt played well since Sacramento beat him up, but he’ll be way better as a 3.

    Singler definitely just knows how to play.  That spin move was strong.  He shoots when he is supposed to.  He has a high basketball IQ.  He earned all of his playing time and a bit more tonight.  Im happy for the first time this season.

    Hey even blind squirrel can find a nut. Everyone on this blog should be mad as hell Detroit isn’t sitting in the same position as Philly, a 500 team. To say that its on this player or that player is easy, when in fact we all know it boils down to coaching. Get the rotaions right and put an emphasis on defense and we could very well be 6-3. Maybe I am the eternal optimist but I believe they are better than what the record says. But like Bill Parcells says” You are what your record says you are”

    By the way listening to most of these guys is why I stay off the freep message boards. Really Stuckey is why we been losing? Please, get a grip. Philly sucks more than Detroit and dont act like they didnt have Bynum in the lineup. Too funny. Just be happy they won and try not to take subtle digs at guys because you think we have found lightening in a bottle. Singler went to Duke, and played a year overseas so I would expect for him to play at a much higher level than most young guys on team right now. It is teh same way Jerebko played when he first became a Piston.

    Singler is a master flopper! 

    Kidding aside, Singler is a stud. It really goes to show you the value of bringing in players that have been winners at every other level they’ve played at. Singler isn’t a rookie in any sense beyond this being his first season in the league. He’s a four year college player and has a year of overseas on the best team there.

    KS doesn’t hesitate to shoot, or have to over think what he needs to try and do on the play at hand. He is a huge steal from last year’s draft.

    Any word on if Stuckey will miss Friday’s game? I’d like to see Singler get another start.
