Maurice Cheeks basically calls Charlie Villanueva out of shape

David Mayo of MLive:

Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks speculated that Charlie Villanueva’s 0-of-8 shooting on 3-pointers in two preseason games is the product of training-camp legs. "If you’re a shooter, you’ve got to get yourself in that shape to be able to make those shots," Cheeks said.

"If you’re a rebounder, you’re not rebounding, they find somebody to rebound. If you’re a shooter, you don’t shoot, they find somebody to shoot," he said.

    Hooray, there is at least one positive for hiring Cheeks.

    I can’t wait until we don’t here his name mentioned in any other context other than being a former Pistons.

    I’d just as soon give any “shooting big man” minutes to Tony Mitchell. Why bother with CV?

    Does this mean we won’t be reading any “Villanueva is in the best shape of his life” articles?
     
    If so, I am disappointed. It was something to set your calendar by, sort of like the leaves changing color.

    Good to see Mo calling a spade a spade!!   This should keep him at the end of the bench if not off the team completely!

    Time for Jorts to stake his claim. If he can fill that stretch big man role off the bench then we don’t even have utter CVs name unless it involves the word ‘trade’.

    JJ and Mitchell!

    Enough with this CV crap. Bury him in the end of the bench, please.

    I’m predicting a bounce back season for JJ.
