|3 days 4 hours ago||Even if the market had opened||
Even if the market had opened up a bit more down the road I still think this is the right move.
It lets players know that the coach and management aren't screwing around which is an attitude adjustment that this team has desperately needed since Larry Brown left. To have a team that is on the same page is exceedingly important in a place like Detroit where you aren't likely to woo a big name FA. This team needs to win by playing like a team because they aren't going to do it by going out and grabbing superstars.
Also, they aren't going to have to eat the contract for long. Josh Smith is too talented for 29 other teams to pass on him.
|3 days 4 hours ago||This is Drummond's first year||
This is Drummond's first year with a coach who is devoted to developing him, I'm fine with giving him more time. His numbers started out slow but his field goal percentage has shot up considerably the past month, implying that he's getting more comfortable offensively. Also, to say Drummond doesn't have much presence defensively is incorrect. He averages 2 blocks and a steal/game in addition to being a beast on the glass. He does have a tendency to get lost on switches and help defense, but I think it's correctable.
Even if he isn't the next Dwight I don't think that's a reason not to build around him. He's easily the most talented player on this roster and they can't blow everything up. I would love to see them pair him with a true stretch four. I'd even be open to them pairing him with Okafor if they could acquire some defensive-minded, 3 point shooters at SF and SG and a P&R PG.

As SDW already said this is frustrating given the fact that they could've unloaded him for expiring contracts over the summer. However, I think this is a positive move as it shows that the Pistons are willing to put support behind a proven coach and young talent rather than a big a contract.
Upsetting but not surprising that Dumars' last two desperation moves haven't panned out. Knight is more or less outplaying Jennings this year. Though the jury is still somewhat out on KCP his minutes may get vultured by Meeks, which makes the fact that they didn't draft Burke even more disappointing. Really would like to see Drummond run a P&R game with a PG who was tailor-made for that offense.

Except for the part right under the quote where Balas says, "For the record, he's right about Harbaugh briefly accepting the Michigan job..."

Since someone else posted their "cool story, bro" rumor, I will post mine.
I talked to my boss today who is friends with several "insiders" and he said he was told Harbaugh to Michigan is a "done deal." His friends/sources include someone who works for the Michigan Rivals site, someone who is a local sports radio host and then an unnamed person in Cleveland who he referred to as "very reliable."

For as fervent a stance as he has taken against Harbaugh going to Michigan he should at least be able to offer up something a little stronger than, "it makes sense." Asshat.

Based on what? The progress pictures that these guys post? The majority of those pictures were from guys who are skill position players who are at an advantage if they remain lean.
More importantly, at what position isn't Michigan sufficiently bulky? The only position group that could possibly fit that description is the offensive line.

Ivo actually played decent defense...in the Trey Burke pickpocket sense of the word.

Carmelo Anthony being accused of not playing team basketball? I'm shocked...
Also, Carmelo Anthony shouldn't threaten to kick anyone's ass when he's the poster child for the Out of Shape, In Shape Guy Club.

Except this guy was banging the Harbaugh to Michigan drum long before anyone else. Now that everyone else is coming around it just looks like conventional wisdom. He was accurate about the Brady Hoke hire, the Brandon resignation and the Brady Hoke fire. He even got a little front page love from Brian today.

Certain "stats" said our defense was good. Those "stats" were mainly YPG, which many around this site have bebunked as an unreliable metric given the poor offensive state of the B1G.
As Mat said FEI and S&P both show that our defense was rather middling.
EDIT: alum96 beat me to it while also providing a much better explanation.

I'm eager to see how this coaching search plays out in relation to what Henson has been saying.
I think he's gotten an unfair amount of flak around here for his tendency to embellish and because his prose is that of a clickbait writer, but he's been fairly accurate thus far. He was more or less right about everything surrounding Dave Brandon's removal so I'm curious to see if his Harbaugh predictions come to fruition.

I remember Brian wanted to keep RR if there wasn't a hand-wavingly better option (Brady Hoke didn't qualify). If I recall it was more or less Harbaugh or bust.

You might try contacting the athletic department. My mom once did this when I wanted an item as a kid and they were very helpful.

That whole season was rough. That game felt like (and was) a foreshadowing of things to come. In retrospect that Marquette squad had some serious ballers though.
