    WOW, Detroit got ripped off.

    That was a mistake…

    Not many NBA cities could make Milwaukee feel like an upgrade, but Detroit is one of them.

    Big Mistake!

    What Detroit has done this offseason is incredibly head scratching. First, they sign Josh Smith when you already have a quality 4 in Greg Monroe. This will only force Smith to play the 3 and in turn encourage him to hoist his horrendous jump shot. Now, they go trade an up and coming intelligent point guard who is still learning for a guy who makes countless horrible and selfish decisions throughout a game who is a horrible teammate. I can only include that these moves made by Dumars will result in a divided locker room because of too many guys looking for their own shot. I would be shocked if this team would ever gel and make any type of playoff run.

    3, good point. As cold as Milwaukee is, it is still better than the scenario in Detroit.

    I am sure most ul fans think this move was made to clear room for Peyton Siva.

    Good for b. knight! One of my favorites. Just out of curiosity I wonder why he is the only cal guy to never come back in the summer?

    Both cities were a lose lose situation. Joe Dumars just once again proves he has no idea what he is doing.

    Clearly Joe Dumars is taking advice from MJ. It will be funny to watch Jennings and Smith jack up 3’s while Greg Monroe’s wastes away in the post. N’Domeking Suh thinks Jennings is selfish and plays out of control. I think it’s time to sell Detroit to Canada for whatever they’ll pay!

    Wish BK would’ve been traded to a team in the sunny South that would be closer to his home state, but at least he’s getting out of the Motor City. I’m afraid it’s to be the Long Hot Summer of ’67 for a while in Detroit. Hoping it all works out well for you, Brandon.

    Highway robbery! For all intents and purposes, the Bucks and Pistons just swapped young point guards, but the Pistons also gave up two quality rotation big men in this trade. The Bucks just got a younger, smarter, cheaper, and more team-oriented point guard to run what is already a very young Milwaukee team. Henson has looked much improved in the summer league, OJ Mayo is over-rated as hell but still a volume scorer, and Larry Sanders is the Bucks version of Nerlens Noel. The Bucks may not be great this year, but they are starting to look like a bonafide up-and-coming team in the Eastern Conference. Congrats on getting out of Detroit B. Knight, that place is almost as doomed as Cleveland

    Good for bucks. Good for Knight. Good for pistons.

    13. What you said made so much sense till you bashed the Cavs. Anyway even Cleveland won’t usurp the Heat yet, but what will, is a deadly force infiltrating the NBA at an alarming rate…and that is Calipari point guards. Masters of their craft, inventors of the game. Maybe the most intelligible group because of the level of awareness Calipari instills in his players. They will be more powerful year after year and I expect championships in the adult league from many of Cal’s former players, hope we get more of those before them go dominate at the next level.

    He can not play the point. That is why he was traded

    @15 You’re going to defend the Cavs? Really? This years draft proved that they are a terribly run franchise, and I doubt they will win 45 games anytime in the next 5 years.

    #9 while I don’t get this move for the Pistons you might want to slow your roll on Dumars. As president of basketball operations he did take the Pistons to six straight conference finals and a championship. I’m pretty sure that puts him in the upper echelon of league management.

    #17 – If Bynum plays anywhere near what he was in L.A. the Cavs have a chance at the playoffs next season. Their roster ain’t bad, and Kyrie’s a top 3 pg already.

    Detroit is about to implode and Milwaukee will be worse than Orlando and Charlotte. Career high in points for Brandon but, he’s going to have an awful Player Efficiency Rating. OJ Mayo is a joke. I bet Wiggins now has a 25% chance to be a Milwaukee Buck.
    For those defending Joe Dumars: after the conference finals string was over, what has he done?
    Darko Millicic, Ben Gordon, Charlie “The Cancer” Villanueva, Rodney Stuckey, etc. and broke the bank for all of them. I’m surprised he hasn’t traded for Amare Stoudemire yet.
    Good luck to Brandon, a class act. I’m just sorry that no one will get to watch him play unless its against Miami. He really could have flourished in Detroit. Now the Pistons will implode. You can’t keep breaking the bank for older veterans after a season of aberration. Unless you want to fight for an 8 seed, year after year.

    Are you kidding me, wake up and smell the coffee people. Pistons go from a 7 o 8 seed to an instant title contender, Jennings took Bucks to playoffs two of last three years with bums by him, add in josh smith they are a contender.

    1.) Heat
    2.) Bulls
    3.) Nets
    4.) Pistons
    5.) Pacers
    6.) Knicks
    7.) Cavaliers
    8.) Wizards

    Love knight but Jennings is a beast…dumars actually does know what he’s doing…UK fans are stupid

    20) tony parker, chris paul, john wall, rajon rondo, deron williams, Russel westbrook, derrick rose are all better than Irving. And call me a homer but i think knight is as well, knight doesn’t gun it like irving does. All irving cares about is his stats, knights all about the team. No way irving is top 3…no way. Cleveland sucks.

    @22: You’re high there’s no way the Pistons become a better team than the Pacers who took the Heat to 7 games only to get hosed. The Pacers lost virtually no one, Granger is healthy and they signed Luis Scola to help aid them. I also wouldn’t take them over the Knicks either. I’m sure Peyton Siva and Kyle Singler will aid the Pistons in their playoff hopes. Their complete roster isn’t that impressive and they’ll have to compete with the Hawks and Celtics (The Nets made the playoffs and the Celts ended up with part of their starting line up) for the 8th spot.

    22 you are an idiot. The pacers are an easy #2 in the east with the addition of Scola and Granger coming off the bench. Paul George will rise to superstardom this year.
