i hear rip will start and gordon will be the sixth man again. detroit doesnt exactly have depth so i think 11 mil for a sixth man of the year would be great. 20ppg off the bench.

Rip will probably be traded for Carlos Boozer
since the Jazz are looking to trade him

Why do raptors fans think that trading away their depth for one decent sg is going to change their team from sucking to being amazing?

Tyson Chandler for RIP

Joe Dumars would do that trade in a heartbeat :nod:

because they would be amzing with that lineup
dont forget we still have derozen, evans, ukic,pops, most likely delfino
and jawai. Id much rather have rip then hump or banks ahaha

Here's the first stupid owner of the year. No way the previous owner, who passed away recently I think, does that.

agree but hes not going there unless we get bosh, since rudy F is mad maybe detroit can snag him that would be a great pick up id trade tayshaun for him,or id give up something , rudy needs to start and detroit will give you that :)

Stupid signing.

You overpay for a SG when you already have Hamilton and Stuckey. The only way this makes sense is if they trade Hamilton.

CV is a good signing though. I'm not sure how much they signed him for, but he is a very undervalued player Imo.

Derrick_Rose
07-01-2009, 08:01 PM
Thank the good Lord we got rid of Ben Gordon. I will miss his scoring, that's for sure. What I won't miss is the poor shot selection, getting lit up every game, oh and don't forget his trademark cross over dribble off his foot that results in a turnover and him not even hustling back.

I guess we can conclude that Richard Hamilton will not be back next season. Detroit overpaid Ben Gordon. He's a solid player, but he's a 1 dimensional type of player and plays little defense.

Rip will probably be traded for Carlos Boozer

boozer is staying in utah for the 09-10 season he has picked up his option he will not be going anywhere neither will okur, korver, while millsap is still in the air

I love how everyone is saying that Gordon is overrated and that they are stupid for getting him since they have Rip... yet Gordon is beating Rip in the SG rankings. Classic PSD.

dumars has to have a trade up his sleeve. He wouldnt have paid 11 million per to slightly upgrade at sg. and thats even debatable. i personally rather have rip then Ben. ANd charlie V? dont they have prince? there has to be some trade in the works or else dumars doesnt like his job anymore...lol

I'd take him in LA for $10/year (no more than that), but I think you meant to say $10 million/year, LOL.

I agree with everyone else, Gordon is overpaid. He's a good shooter and offensive player, but his defense sucks and he's a ball hog most of the time.

The Nuggets are looking for FA's at the rate of $12-$14 a year, so that isn't bad lol

They really overpayed for two players, neither of which I think is the answer, or a good replacement for The Answer

07-01-2009, 09:46 PM
I wonder what the response would be if the Lakers, Celts, Knicks, or Bulls resigned him for the same. I am thinking there would be high praise being sung from rooftops.

Overpaid? Sure, but just about every borderline all-star type will be. Hedo? Milsap? etc. That is the business. Look at your teams rosters. Every team has overpaid a bit on someone. The Pistons needed someone who can hit the 3. They got it (albiet at a slightly elevated rate).

Vilanueva IMO was a better pickup for them.

If the Pistons can Parlay RIP into a trade fvor a solid C, they will be in business.

i dont get how some people can be idiots do you want the pistons to age and grow old together da billups trade was questionable i agree but come on rip is getting up there in age as is prince you have to understand that they cant keep them together forever. i think its a good move for the pistons adding villanueva and gordon you have a younger backcourt and have some shooters. if anyone thinks they can do better hey go be a GM and shut us all up. but til then please stop hating and STFU.
