Darko missed an open dunk earlier this season, is he a bust? Maybe.

If I'm not wrong Jordan missed one dunk last year...
Hey even I missed a dunk a couple times... :grinning:
It's not a big deal.

I was going to say the same thing. I'm not slamming this thread or anything, but I hate when people all of a sudden make a big deal out of a player missing a dunk. The players are human. They make mistakes sometimes. :cool:

I didn't mean the original post seriously. I agree with you. That's what I was trying to express.

Yea, I was gonna say, I thought you were kidding. I was gonna give you a nice little LOL and maybe a :laugh:

Michael missed a dunk so he is a bust but as far as Matiz goes he must have been fouled, he can NOT be a bust.

You people will be shocked with the great offers Okur receives in FA this season... a possible Arenas like situation for Detroit if they can't move Chucky Atkins, and many teams including Phoenix, Miami won't hesitate to offer him a contract starting at $5-6 million.

I won't be shocked. Okur is a very good all-around player that many teams would love to have, especially with his size.

I think the wink in Nevus' first post gave it away that he was joking.

Anyway, I do agree with you, he's a bust. ;)

The Pistons have 6 million in cap space next year. Joe D has been managing the future cap all year from fear of having an Arenas' situation. Even if someone offers him more than 6 mil, Detroit should have one of Atkins, Campbell or Williamson off the books as well from the expansion draft so it seems that there is no threat in losing Okur - unless some team majorly overpays him and Detroit just doesn't want to match.

IMO, they should sign-and-trade Okur for future picks, good bench players, so you can re-sign Milicic in a couple years.

Not only do they have Darko for 4 years, but they have his bird rights so there is no need to clear cap space, they can sign him to any contract they want.

Detroit needs to keep Okur and will likely do everything they can to do so.
