At the Palace Wednesday, the Detroit Pistons introduced their new head coach Lawrence Frank. What's the point? There is no NBA and none on the horizon. Frank spoke like he matters at the moment. No one in the NBA matters. You wonder if the league will ever come back. Why did the Pistons hire him now? Joe Dumars could have held down the fort. A head coach isn't needed, some kind of mediator, I guess, would help more.
Frank is like all the rest. He talked the talk, but his players are the same ones that lost 50 more games than they won in two years under the fired John Kuester. I wonder how new Pistons' owner Tom Gores will feel about a year from now if there is still no NBA? The labor problems are massive. But the league apparently saved some money on Wednesday. Commissioner David Stern said he won't take any of his reported $23 million annual salary while the lockout is on. That salary is about as ridiculous as some of the players and that's why they're all in debt and there is no labor agreement.
