The Season Begins Tonight

Well Technically it started yesterday but it starts tonight for my Detroit Pistons. Its been a crazy past year and off-season from AI, to Currys firing (thank god), to bringing in Charlie V. and Ben Gordon and even bringing back a familiar face in Ben Wallace. Detroit is in none other then Memphis tonight where former teammate Allen Iverson is now, although its not likely that hes gonna play tonight.

On another not, Rip spoke on the situation about Michael Curry and Allen Iverson from last year:

“M.C. lied to us a million times,” Hamilton said of Curry. “He sat me and A.I. down one time and was like, ‘I’m going to lean on both of you the whole year, just don’t go to the media. Say you’ll do whatever for the team and blah blah blah.’ This was a week before he brought me off the bench. He lied. So I feel for what Allen said.”

He added: “I think the person that we had didn’t know how to take advantage of (our roster). Instead of taking advantage of it, he killed it.”

Hamilton also discredited the idea that the Pistons, although upset about losing Chauncey Billups in the trade with the Nuggets, were unwilling to accept Iverson as a teammate. Asked if he ever had any problems with Iverson, Hamilton said: “Oh, no, no, no. We loved him, he loved us. We were all friends, we were all brothers. Like I said, certain people make it complicated when it shouldn’t be complicated.”

At least thats behind the team now, time to get back to the top of the EC where we belong.
