Go blue!

I can’t believe I forgot to mention this—did everyone see the Michigan women’s basketball coach?

I’ve seen a lot of angry coaches, but that guy just seemed deranged, like late period Bobby Knight. The love is gone and it’s all fury.

    He was angry. I don’t think it was in any way close to the mike gundy thing but his slamming the podium was hilarious. Michigan’s coaches should represent the university with a little more composure.

    I can’t believe you didn’t have a huge post about the emergence of amir johnson. I didn’t get to watch the pistons last night but Amir Johnson was the first words of hte recap of the game on yahoo.

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP)—Amir Johnson had more problems with his postgame interview Tuesday night than he did with the Seattle SuperSonics.

    Moments after hitting a key shot that helped the Detroit Pistons beat Seattle 100-97, Johnson had to deal with Rasheed Wallace and Jarvis Hayes heckling him while he tried to talk to the media. At one point, Hayes flipped a towel over Johnson’s head while Wallace told him to take his entourage to the interview room.

    “This is big for my confidence,” the 21-year-old Johnson said. “I thought Rasheed would be coming in, but I wanted to finish the game.”

    Detroit led 96-94 in the final minute when Chauncey Billups saw Johnson cutting to the basket.

    “I saw he had gotten a little open, and he’s such a great athlete that I was happy to take my chances with him taking a shot,” Billups said.

    Johnson made it pay off, hitting a layup in traffic to double Detroit’s lead with 32 seconds left.

    “I was supposed to be a distraction—roll to the hoop to open things up for Tayshaun (Prince),” he said. “But Chauncey gave me the ball and I made the shot.”

    Pistons coach Flip Saunders went with two youngsters, Johnson and Jason Maxiell, over veterans Antonio McDyess and Wallace down the stretch.

    “The young guys got us back into the game with their energy, so we stayed with them,” he said. “They did what we needed them to do.”

    The Pistons were playing their first home game after a West Coast trip, and were also looking ahead to Wednesday’s clash with Boston.

    “That was a tough game mentally—that happens to every team after they come back from the coast,” Billups said. “Luckily, the kids got us going and we fed off that.”

    Anyways, for anyone who wants some return on his investment into an Amir Johnson jersey you would think this would be big news…

    Also, sam cassell on the c’s i think makes them significantly tougher to beat in a 7 game series. He always seems to make big 3’s late in games and is another veteran that adds depth.

    i think i’ve been trying to distance myself mentally from amir because for a while i was getting really irrational about things, thinking that amir was the next KG, etc. sort of like you with stuckey as dumars 2.0 or you with rodney white as jordan.

    also, it’s hard to comment on games that i saw zero seconds of. though i’m not afraid of just quoting the boxscore.

    jerry. you wearing your jersey? and im talking a stones jersey? i think you have to. amir jersey at the game!! just think about it.

    Rip Hamilton, who just turned 30, leads the Pistons in minutes per game with 34.4. Everyone else is stuck around the 33-minute mark. The team’s roster is absolutely stacked, the team’s frontcourt is the envy of the NBA even without some sprightly 7-footer throwing in 25 a night, and I’m far from convinced that we’ve seen the best of the Pistons yet.

    whee!
