Rip Hamilton at the announce booth.   He doesn't look like he aged a day.  

Hearing him makes me want to pull out a Going to Work DVD after this game. I'm also playing a 1988-89 Pistons game while watching this contest. It's a super Pistons night for me.

I wonder how different his game would look now with all the analytics?   He was lauded for his mid range game but that is basically poison to NBA teams now.

My "yes sirrrr" Rip bobble head doll at work (one of those freebies I got at a game) still sounds great when I push down the basketball. Occasionally I'll ask Rip a question, push the basketball and have Rip answer "Yes sir.....". I'm sure I drive my co-workers crazy with it since they have no clue who he is or the context of the comment.

I often wonder what kids too young to really remember the going to work Pistons think of Mason's "DETROIT BASKETBALL".  They probably wonder why he says it with such authority even though it usually just gets a mild reaction from the crowds nowadays.

I tend to agree with what he said to a certain point. He's moving to a point where he was getting open 12 to 15 footers. I could see that driving me crazy on defense. Almost everyone it's either stop and pop from where you are or drive to the hoop. It would seem to me that would be easier to defend than a guy that adds another solid option to that arsenal. It would be interesting to actually see how proficient he was with those shots and see if it really did have a statistical benefit. It was funny when they were talking about his mid-range game GS had those two awful bricks with those two shots (okay, maybe they were a little closer than mid-range Js.

If the Pistons get it going again, it will become a trademark again. 

The one nice thing about having a bad period between good eras is you start losing season ticket holders during the bad era and usually for about a season during the upgrade you get regular fans buying single tickets and you get more entertaining crowds that engage in that stuff. Fun Pistons crowds are super fun.

Only two teams in the Association have fewer losses than the Pistons.  Yes the Pistons played fewer games than most but don't let that fact get in the way of my narrative.   Also of the 7 losses 4 of them came by either 1 possession or OT.   

This has been fun but I still get gun shy thinking what happened last year.
