The Onion picks on the Pistons
One group not given to share even a slight amount of hope about the Detroit Pistons after their sale to billionaire Tom Gores are the writers over at TheOnion.com.
The satirical online news site has a story today about the JumboTron no longer caring about the Pistons chances. One joke is that the JumboTron encourages fans to stand up, but not to cheer, rather to walk out and "do something worthwhile with your night."
Yes, the Pistons will miss the playoffs, struggling at 29-51, but at least they are better than Cleveland, which has languished without LeBron James at 17-63, tied for last in the NBA with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
And speaking of LeBron, his former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday beat the Pistons, who had won a road game the prior night in Charlotte.
