Opinion: Pistons Must Avoid Isiah Thomas as next General Manager

Joe Dumars still holds the title of Detroit Pistons general manager, but could another former Piston great, and Dumars’ teammate, soon be the next owner of that job?

In a season where playoffs were once a realistic expectation, the Pistons have underwhelmed the city of Detroit. The Pistons are 24-37 and are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference.

Opinion: Lions Should Dip Paws into Free Agency This March

The Detroit Lions’ offseason agenda is so hazy, not even a fortune teller could predict it.

Mark your calendars because March will be a big month. March 8 is when the free agency flirting begins followed by the March 11 date of when signatures and dollar signs can be inked into contracts. The Detroit Lions can start camp two weeks earlier than the normal April 21 offseason workouts because of the recent signing of new head coach, Jim Caldwell. These dates are creeping up, and the decisions are about to be made.

Impact Izzone: Let’s Get Ready for Madness

Here it is. The mythical month of March.

The month where, all of a sudden, you need to know how well Virginia Commonwealth’s Havoc defense will go against a high-paced offense.

It is the month where, before the “second round” starts, you must strategically plan which games to stream on your laptop and or tablet and which one to put on TV. Or which booth at the bar will provide you with optimal game viewing opportunities.

Opinion: End of the Line for Joe Dumars

Three NBA Championships, five Eastern Conference titles and nine division titles have all been part of Pistons’ general manager Joe Dumars’ career in Detroit. Now, despite being a part of the organization as either a player or in the front office for nearly three decades, Dumars’ job in Detroit is in question.

All great partnerships must come to an end eventually. Brett Favre could not play in Green Bay forever, nor could Phil Jackson coach the Bulls another year after winning six titles with Michael Jordan. The Colts had to separate from Peyton Manning and even the Eagles had to decide whether or not to part with long-time coach Andy Reid.
