The Pistons Next Hero, Anthony Davis? By Klassy K
Man, oh man, Home Skillets! I’m about to get right to it. Many may not know that the Pistons have a losing record, and it’s not even 50%. They have lost more games than they have won. Sorry to be the barrier of bad news, but it’s about to get even worse. Now, you know about the trade to get Blake Griffin? How many players do you think the Pistons franchise had to give up? Or Round pick? Or Tom Gore’s bank statements or auction a few Bad Boys paraphernalia? Who knows, only what the media tells you, but you can get an idea that it was worth 100 million dollars.
Yeah, it’s crazy, right, but also remember that the Pistons just three years prior, offered “zero” a.k.a. Andre Drummond over 100 million dollars which equal about $25 million a year for a 5-year contract, not bad for a guy that averages 13 points and rebounds. Ahh, before you tell yourself that’s pretty good, Google centers like Joel Embiid or Anthony Davis and holla back. Now, you can also say, well it could be their coach, staff or teammates. Blah, blah, blah, call it what it is! Well, I was watching the news about 2 weeks ago and Channel 2 was interviewing Billionaire Tom a.k.a Richie Rich. He is the owner and the guy that pays people who don’t know what they are doing, they think they do, but they really don’t. They remind me of “yes sir and what-ever you want sir” because the Pistons are about to do another idiocy trade.
Now, I don’t know if you know, but Anthony Davis is about to be a free man. No ladies, I don’t mean that type of free, but a free agent. Anthony Davis is currently playing for the New Orleans Pelicans, averaging about 25-30 points, and 10-13 rebounds. So, wouldn’t it be cool if the Pistons could get rid of that “zero” Andre Drummond and get with a hero Anthony Davis! Yeah BABY! The Pistons need to be saved! Can you picture Mason calling out 6’10, forward-center, Big Eazy, unibrowwwwww, from Chicago, IL ANTHONY DAVIS???? The crowd goes wild! Now the Pistons will have two major players on the team, Blake and Anthony, Batman and Robin, hmmmm, that sounds like money!
Well, that’s not going to happen, you know why? Because the Pistons franchise can’t afford Anthony Davis. You know what they are doing? Trading for GARBAGE and SCRAPS! Yeah, you would think that Tom Billionaire would just pony up the dough, but nah, Drummond and Griffin, combined is over $200 million dollars. Don’t forget about the other bench warmers. Did you know that the Pistons are worth over a billion dollars? I guess that’s why the pop, pizza, water (should be free) and other food and merchandise items cost you 1/3 of your paycheck. Hey, they must do something to cover the costs to pay these divas. Oh, I forgot, you do have to pay for parking which is about $20 to 30. So, make sure you attend the games alone!
Now, back to GARBAGE and SCRAPS. Well, the Pistons organization is desperate, so desperate that they are going to trade Reggie Bullock for Lakers guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk. Did your carpet move too when you said his name? I wonder how Mason is going to introduce him to the Detroit fans? I know one thing, it doesn’t sound sexy! Also, the Pistons franchise is trying to get Thon Maker. Yeah, who? I said the same thing. He is tall about 7’1, shoots 3’s, rebounds the ball, and played for the Milwaukee Bucks. He can be a great asset to the team. Yeah ok, not averaging 6 points a game, Home Skillets. I can’t make this up! God, please send us Anthony Davis!
