Monroe Finally Breaks 20 Points Tonight

Following the Pistons the last few years can best be described as brutal, and disappointing. Not only have we watched guys like Billups and Sheed leave, we are now waiting for Rip to be traded while he rides the pine every night. It's just a disaster.

We sing a guy like Ben Gordon for too much money while we keep Rip last year for no reason at all. Se we could watch another season of worthless 3 guard line ups and the lack of big men.

In comes Greg Monroe. A guy that is not expected to be a star. Ever. A decent #4 probably on a good time in the long run. a 15/9 guy hopefully I would say. Certainly has the ability to be close to a double double guy and you can see some improvement in his defense here and there.

Suffice to say, he finally hit the 20 point mark for the first time in a Piston's win that halted a 4 game skid. They played the Nets that haven't won a road game since mid-November. They have lost 22 of their last 23 road games. Yeah they won't have anyone at a microphone anytime soon except the coach after he gets fired.

Astonishingly, the Pistons are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. That's right. The NBA is complete trash. Especially the East. It is just plain horrible to watch some of these teams the league is so watered down right now. There may be a handful of teams worth watching and that is being nice.

Suhmanji Wins Another NFL Rookie of the Year

Ndamakong (yay I can spell it now without double checking) Suh has won the NFL Rookie of the Year award from the fan vote at Beating out Sam Bradford who the Lions put a severe beating on in their matchup earlier this season in the first Lions ass whoopin' I believe I can remember off the top of my head since beating Dallas in the playoffs 100 years ago. Like RipVanWinkle and his mattress I may finally be able to peak open an eye a bit here.

Surprising to see a ROY given to a defensive guy over a QB in a fan vote. In fact it is the first time a defensive player has won the award in the fan vote. Amazing accomplishment for our big man that's for sure.

Suh is racking up rookie awards, and deservedly so. He already won the Defensive Rookie of the Year from the Associated Press. A great thing for us Lions fans to have a little optimism on the defensive side of the ball for once.
