Much like the Raptors were a fine pick-me-up after the Blazers crumbled to the Thunder, so too, in light of Sunday’s Laker Breakdown, should the Pistons provide Tuesday. Detroit have more talent than the Raptors, but—unbelievably—they’re thinner in the middle.
That’s right. Despite the Raptors’ pillow-soft starting center, Detroit is even more barren down low.
The only player on the Pistons’ roster with a “C” by his name is Ben Wallace. That’s right—six-foot-nine, 36-year-old Ben Wallace. You may remember him from 2003.
Another player you’ll remember from 2003 is Tracy McGrady, who at $854,389 a year, signed with Detroit this summer the veterans minimum. To be fair, making $854,389 in Detroit is comparable to making $14 Trillion in Los Angeles.
In honor of Detroit’s recession-ravished economy, the Blazers are offering tickets to tonight’s game for half-price. Actually, it’s because they’re hosting the Pistons on a rainy Tuesday.
Dang, that’s rough. But, Motown, you know I love you and wish you the best. But Tuesday, unfortunately, your hopes figured to be dashed yet again.
- After losing their first five games, Detroit have won their last two on the road, at Charollote and Golden State.
- The Pistons rank 27th in the NBA at points per game, 27th in rebounds, and 26th in assists.
