Detroit Pistons point guard Brandon Jennings is out for the season with a torn Achilles tendon, but his thumbs were healthy enough to rip LeBron James on Twitter Monday night. In a discussion with a frequent NBA blogger on the social media site of the league's greatest all-time players, Jennings tweeted that James "run(s) too much when *&$% gets tough," a reference to James leaving the Cavaliers for Miami in 2010 and then rejoining Cleveland after the Heat lost in the Finals last summer.

Vincent Ellis: Jennings had surgery last night. Texting SVG this morning with game plan suggestions. #pistons Twitter @Vincent_Ellis56

The Pistons have not released formal details about the surgery yet. "He seems fine, as a matter of fact, he was texting me game-plan advice this morning -- 'I've been watching them (Cavaliers) a lot,' that's what he said," Van Gundy said at this morning's shootaround. "He's so into it, it kills him not to be playing. That guy loves to play basketball. More than most people that I've been around in this league, he just loves to play, and this is killing him. He's trying to stay upbeat." Booth Newspapers
