well, no. They used all their cap space on wilcox. BW was signed using a vet minimum contract. They couldnt have combined them. I do kinda like Zaza

This shows how little you know about bigs in the NBA.

Did you watch the playoff series between the Hawks and the Heat?

The first game, Zaza had 10 points, 19 rebounds.

The fourth game Zaza had 12 points, 18 rebounds.

He can something almost no reserve can do (by the way, he ought to be starting) - he can win a game by himself.

Without him, the Hawks would have lost that series.

It is one of the trademarks of Woodson's stupidity that he doesn't play Zaza more.

Zaza can carry a team every 4 games, which is something Wilcox could never do and something Wallace can't do anymore.

Because the Pistons suck now - that's why Sheed left.

Ben Gordon at 11 million per season? Horrible. No other team would have offered more than MLE for him.

And CV at 7 million per season? Another horrible move. Milwaukee was like - don't let the door hit you on the way out.

The Pistons won't even make the playoffs this year.

I was typing in metaphors - I mean (and other people with basic intelligence understand this) that he can carry a team.

The Hawks don't win game 4 against the Heat without him getting 12 points and 18 rebounds.

Who's better: Zaza or CV?

Easily Zaza. It would have been better for the Pistons to have spent that money on Zaza instead of CV.

Rasheed left because we never made him an offer. Get it right.

We suck? Interesting. Last I checked the roster had been almost entirely revamped. Not a single game has been played. Yet we suck? Interesting indeed.

Hopefully we can get a good 10 mpg out of Ben. More importantly, I hope he can bring his old attitude back, and instill a desire to play defense in our new acquisitions.
