What if NBA teams were football clubs? I really like it -- in fact, I like it a lot more than the mockup of the "Motor City" sleeved jersey the Pistons will reportedly wear this year.

  • A look at the Pistons' salary cap situation and roster constraints

    23 Sep 2014 | 8:34 am
    The Pistons are under the cap and over the roster limit. The Detroit Pistons went into the offseason with a healthy dose of cap space and a specific plan -- get quality, affordable veterans in free agency and lock up Greg Monroe into a long-term contract while still leaving the team with enough flexibility to continue adding talent and to lock up Andre Drummond to an expected maximum contract a year from now. The first part of the equation went about as well as planned if you ask president Stan Van Gundy and GM Jeff Bower. The Pistons added Jodie Meeks, Caron Butler, DJ Augustin, Cartier…
  • Darko Milicic is a professional kickboxer now

    22 Sep 2014 | 1:03 pm
    Because, of course. Darko Milicic was not a good NBA player. That's not entirely his fault. He didn't force the Detroit Pistons to draft him No. 2 overall in 2003. And while he's not the first second-overall pick to be an NBA bust (hello, Hasheem), he did have the misfortune of busting out in the same draft class as LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and several other really good players. Milicic hasn't played since being released by the Boston Celtics in 2012. Since then he has competed in the World Carp Classic, but that apparently hasn't sated his appetite for…
  • Previewing the 2014-15 Pistons: Jonas Jerebko

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:30 am
    Can the first Swedish-born player to start an NBA game make an impact once more for Detroit in his contract year? When you are picked in the second round of the NBA Draft, but nevertheless start 73 games as a rookie, it seems reasonable to expect that you are well on the way to a productive career. But it’s basically been all downhill for Jonas Jerebko ever since that surprising 2009-10 season. Entering the final year of a four-year, $18 million contract that he signed in 2011, his current path to playing time looks as difficult as a winter’s trek through Lappland. Jerebko became the…

    Detroit Bad Boys is preparing for the 2014-15 season by examining the past and projecting the future for each player on the Detroit Pistons roster. Cartier Martin was one of the more intriguing signings of the offseason - not because of his impact on the court but because he was signed early in free agency. That's not usually the case for a player who has survived mostly on 10-day contracts. But Stan Van Gundy had a list of targets and among the guys expecting to accept the minimum and Martin was at the top of his list. To make sure he didn't field any other offers Van Gundy even added a…

    (Adds late games) Sep 22 (The Sports Xchange) - Highlights of Monday's Major League Baseball Games.

  • Royals-Indians Preview (The Associated Press)

    22 Sep 2014 | 9:42 pm
    After failing to move in front of first-place Detroit over the weekend, the Kansas City Royals got some help to remain close in the race for the AL Central crown. Trailing the Tigers by just one game, the Royals will also look to push the fading Indians to the brink as the two clubs continue a key series Tuesday in Cleveland. Kansas City (85-71) lost Monday in the completion of a suspended game from Aug. 31 before Danny Duffy pitched six strong innings for his first win in more than a month, leading the Royals to a 2-0 victory over Cleveland in the regularly scheduled game. It was a badly…
  • White Sox-Tigers Preview (The Associated Press)

    22 Sep 2014 | 9:35 pm
    If David Price's previous five outings are any indication, the left-hander should be in for a strong performance this time out. Looking to again bounce back from another rough start, Price will try to help the Detroit Tigers maintain sole possession of the AL Central lead by avoiding a third straight defeat Tuesday night against the visiting Chicago White Sox. With its division lead over Kansas City down to one game, Detroit (86-70) needs Price (14-12, 3.37 ERA) to be at his best in the first of possibly two starts this week. "We're hoping that with the importance of the next couple of starts…
  • Bassitt and White Sox slow down Tigers, 2-0 (The Associated Press)

    Brad Ausmus pointed out Monday afternoon that no one is going to roll over and hand his Detroit Tigers the AL Central title. Hours later, rookie Chris Bassitt and the White Sox proved the manager right. Bassitt pitched into the eighth inning for his first major league win, Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer and Chicago slowed Detroit's playoff push with a 2-0 victory. We're going to have to win these last games on our own.'' Detroit is one game ahead of the second-place Royals, who beat Cleveland 2-0 in their regularly scheduled game Monday night.
  • Royals beat Indians 2-0, gain on Tigers (The Associated Press)

    22 Sep 2014 | 8:22 pm
    Danny Duffy pushed the Royals a little closer to the top in the AL Central and nearer their first playoff appearance in 29 years. Duffy pitched six shutout innings for his first win in more than a month as Kansas City moved within one game of first-place Detroit and kept some distance over Cleveland in the wild-card race, beating the Indians 2-0 on Monday night. Duffy (9-11), who had thrown just one pitch in September before the start, escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first and held the Indians to six hits. ''I wasn't feeling any pressure,'' Duffy said.

  • Shafer reflects on watching Notre Dame growing up in Midwest

    23 Sep 2014 | 11:11 am
    A young Scott Shafer spent his weekends watching football in Painesville, Ohio. No cable, just the broadcasts of Ohio State, Michigan, whoever they were playing and Syracuse’s (2-1) Saturday 8 p.m. opponent, No. 8 Notre Dame (3-0). In his Tuesday teleconference, Shafer said Ohio State, Michigan and the Fighting Irish, in that order, were his favorite teams to root for growing up. From 1967, the year Shafer was born, to 1985, Notre Dame finished in the top 25 12 times, had an average year-end ranking of 6.7 and won seven of the 11 bowl games it played in. “We’d always watch the…
  • Shafer, Syracuse prep for Golson, Notre Dame after struggles against dual-threat quarterbacks

    23 Sep 2014 | 10:42 am
    Syracuse nearly lost to Villanova and did lose to Maryland — the two times it’s faced teams led by dual-threat quarterbacks this season. No. 8 Notre Dame and its quarterback, Everett Golson, are likely to be the Orange’s toughest such test of the season to date. SU (2-1) faces the Fighting Irish (3-0) at 8 p.m. Saturday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. And in his Tuesday teleconference, Orange head coach Scott Shafer talked about the need to contain Golson, who led UND to an undefeated regular season and the 2013 national title game, which it lost to Alabama. “I…
  • Shafer: Replacing Broyld means outside receivers going in at H-back

    23 Sep 2014 | 10:32 am
    With Ashton Broyld out, Syracuse  will mix perimeter receivers into Broyld’s H-back role, head coach Scott Shafer said in his weekly teleconference on Tuesday. “It’ll be by committee and some of the guys that were playing solely outside have to be ready to play inside as well,” Shafer said. Broyld came up limping in the middle of a route against Maryland on Saturday before falling to the turf. He then pounded the turf in frustration as medical staff began to work on his already heavily wrapped right leg at the UMD 5-yard line. Shafer announced in a interview on…

  • Personal responsibility can help combat climate change

    22 Sep 2014 | 10:05 pm
    The Sunday climate change march and Monday climate change protest, which were both held in New York City, have brought environmental issues to the forefront of the media. This is positive, as it can raise awareness for a global issue. But participating in a march or in a protest will accomplish nothing unless every single person involved takes personal responsibility for combating climate change. The People’s Climate March gathered over 400,000 people on Sunday to protest climate change. And Monday’s Flood Wall Street protest, involved 3,000 activists at its peak who staged a massive…

    Having regular family dinners can do a lot more for your kids than simply keeping them healthy and well nourished. National research shows sitting down and sharing a meal can help kids and teens resist the temptations of drugs and alcohol. “There’s power in family meal time,” said Shannon Cohen, Coordinator and Chair of the Kent County Prevention Coalition (KCPC). In a report from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University (CASA Columbia), teens who have infrequent family dinners (fewer than three per week) are almost four times more likely to use…

  • A Guide to National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

    A Healthier Michigan
    23 Sep 2014 | 6:20 am
    Illegal drug abuse gets a lot of attention, but rates of prescription drug abuse are also alarmingly high. In the U.S., 6.8 million people have abused prescription drugs.  And many people are getting their pills through friends or relatives, often by raiding the family medicine cabinet. These very serious trends prompted the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to create National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day in 2010. The idea: Offer a safe and anonymous way for people to get rid of expired or unwanted medications. The program has led to the collection of more than 4.1 million pounds of…
