    And our new GM going to be handicapped by this trade no one seems to give him any stink over. Media really needs to call out Weaver. But they won't, because the only ones left caring are the slappies

    What are we trading multiple first round picks for right now?

    Weaver has been a wild mess, but complaining that he can't mortgage the future because of 1 heavily protected first round pick seems weird.

    Not being able to trade more than a 1st rd pick for potentially 7 years when most nba trades involve 1st rd picks is a huge handicap on a team trying to take the next step. It was a horrible trade but honestly he fucked up everywhere else we may still be in lottery in 2027.

    Hardly his worst move, but one barely mentioned

    Unfortunately, I don't think Weaver is going anywhere.

    27 wins worse than any other team. We won't even win 27 this year

    Jam3s made a comment on Twitter today that had me look it up, and it's crazy that if you combined MSU starting 5 and the Pistons opening night starting 5, the 4 oldest players of the 10 would all be Spartans. They have a higher average age of starters than the Pistons do

    so James was using that as an excuse?

    Kind of. Throws it out there but then says it doesn't excuse them being THIS bad

    Funny how it took their "star" player to say they suck for the media to actually come out and write articles about how they are bad

    It says Cade sucks (by "future franchise player" standards) and I was wrong to argue when you compared his shooting numbers to Killian's this year. I am sorry.

    that was me.

    so we are going to walk away from Cade? You definitely can’t extend him or give him anything close to max. He’s garbage

    Cade 6 assists 1 turnover
    Ivey 11 pts on 5/6 shooting
    Playing a good team closely

    It's almost like starting someone with offensive ability helps the team....too bad no one thought of it sooner (still need to shoot better from deep as a team, but offense has a pulse)

    5 turnovers in the first half. 6 turnovers in the first 8 minutes of the third quarter.

    Ivey checked out with 4:44 left in third. Halfway thru 4th now, still haven't brought him back in. 15 pts on 7/8 shooting. Come on, what are we doing Monty

    Getting cooked by KCP and Reggie Jackson makes this one so much worse

    Team looked a lot better with this new lineup, but still not good enough

    Sasser was only given 5 minutes tonight.

    Meanwhile, Hayes and Burks in 31 combined minutes off bench had 3 pts 4 assists 3 turnovers on 1/7 shooting.

    It'll be interesting to see guard rotation when Monte Morris is back

    I'm more excited to see Duren hopefully back soon and Wiseman once again not allowed to play because he's awful.

    Duren and Bogdanovic are returning to practice this week. Morris is out at least another 6-8 weeks after getting a PRP injection.

    Morris tweeted a picture of a cap, then deleted it.

    Cap is slang for lie, likely insinuating the injury report released right before his tweet was in his mind not truthful

    If the guy is away from the team, and they're not saying anything it, there's probably a good reason why he's away, and a good reason why they're not saying anything about it.

    Why do people think they're owed this info?

    Zach Harper said if we are winless after the Wizard game Monday we might not win again in 2023. The odds of that are minuscule but man the schedule in December is ridiculous. It’s embarrassing to be at this point.

    You're telling me Ben Johnson stops showing up on Lions sidelines for weeks and the team doesn't make a single comment about it, people aren't going to ask questions? I think most well run organizations would release something like "he's away from the team dealing with a personal matter" or something vague instead of just ignoring it

    Different situation. it's a fucking no name assistance coach that nobody cares about. I had no idea who this guy was until you brought it up in this thread.

    Over under 5.5 wins by end of year. We've played 15 so far and have 15 more to go. In order to get to 6 wins, we'd have to go 4-11 over our next 15.

    Think it's funny there is still a section of our fanbase using injuries as an excuse for our losing streak.

    The Pelicans rested Zion v us
    Sun's didn't play Booker or Beal
    Bucks Giannis got ejected and Middleton didn't play
    Trae didn't play for Atlanta
    Jokic and the coach got ejected for Denver

    I mean, we've lucked out as much as we've been hampered in games in terms of whose in and out

    Team looks a lot better with starting lineup change

    Still fold late at first sign of adversity though
