Motown bakeries, be on alert!
As Kwame Brown just became the newest member of the Detroit Pistons. Two years, $8 million, with a player option for the second season. In theory, this is the perfect team for the former Laker. The Pistons barely score, often cruise the court at a glacial pace, play ugly Eastern conference ball and have enough good players to possibly cover Brown's weaknesses (to put it kindly). Most important, he isn't expected to be a star, nor is it remotely a given that he'll start (which I doubt he'd mind). Frankly, his playing time could come along the lines of a situational lefty in baseball or an NFL third down back. At any rate, I think it's safe to say that if the Artist Formerly Known as "54"- Jason Maxiell already has the number, so a switch may be in order- can't find success in this situation, it isn't happening anywhere.
At any rate, Kwame's a good dude, so I wish him the best (except against one team, obviously). I'd be lying if I claimed confidence his career will turn around in Day-twah, but hey, stranger things have happened. After all, the Clippers just put Ricky Davis on the same Mike Dunleavy-coached team as Tim Thomas.
