Detroit Pistons Rumors
When you hear the whispers that Chauncey’s not a point guard in Denver. When the injury bug hits you, at the time you least can afford it, in Orlando. And when you check into the Last Chance Hotel in Minnesota. Stay patient. Stay patient, Chauncey. Because that — all of that — is your journey. And Detroit is your destination. In Detroit, you’ll have a group of teammates who are nothing like you … and yet somehow, also, just like you. You’ll have a family of brothers who have been through adversity — and come out the other side. You’ll have Ben, and you’ll have Tay, and you’ll have Rip, and you’ll have Sheed. And when you step onto that floor with them … you’ll feel it. You’ll know it: that Deee-troit Baaa-sketball won’t just be your one shot at greatness. It will be theirs, too.
Van Gundy has been called for jury duty at Oakland County Circuit Court, he revealed after today’s morning shootaround for a 7:30 p.m. game against the Denver Nuggets. So that’s how Van Gundy will spend the first day of the Pistons’ eight-day All-Star break. Van Gundy was notified of the jury call back in October, he said.
He tried playing the I’m-coach-of-the-Pistons card, but apparently they have pocket schedules in circuit court, too. “I got called in training camp and tried to put it off until the end of the year. They looked at our schedule and said, ‘February 11th,’ ” Van Gundy said.
Rod Beard: #Pistons Stan Van Gundy says Spencer Dinwiddie will be back with the team after All-Star break, at least initially. “We’ll weigh what’s best for him and what’s best for us. Initially, we’ll bring him back. I’d like to see him now.”
