The Atlanta Hawks, well actually the city of Atlanta, is the latest victim of the Polar Vortex. The arctic blast is dipping so low into the continental United States that it even hit the Deep South. The National Basketball Association game scheduled for this evening between the Detroit Pistons and Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena has been postponed due to severe weather conditions in the Atlanta area.
Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings will not play in the preseason contest at the Chicago Bulls tomorrow night or at the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday after missing the last two preseason games with wisdom tooth discomfort.
It sounds like not a big deal. But it truly is. Wisdom teeth can be very problematic. And when they do get impacted, and cause issues, those can be quite painful actually. So Brandon Jennings will miss the home court RETURN OF Derrick Rose.
OMG OMG OMG D. ROSE IS BACK OMG OMG
Detroit Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey underwent successful surgery to repair a fracture of the distal phalanx on his right thumb today. The procedure was performed by Dr. Brian Najerian at DMC Surgical Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. He should be out for a couple weeks, maybe even a few weeks as he’ll wear a splint on the thumb for two weeks.
The Pistons also said that Rodney Stuckey will be re-evaluated at that time.

Admission is free. This is quite rare for a NBA team to open up their practices to the fans.
The Detroit Pistons unveiling a new special uniform that will be worn during 10 games throughout the 2013-14 NBA regular season. The navy blue and red uniforms feature “Motor City” across the front and mark the club’s first alternative look since the 2005-06 NBA season. The uniforms are the first of their kind, designed to celebrate pride in metro Detroit while paying homage to the region’s automotive roots.
Ever since NBA Center Jason Collins made his historic announcement a couple months ago, the question has been asked, will he actually play? Yes, we’ve broken through now to have an openly gay male athlete in one of the major team sports. Jason Collins the social trail blazer is accomplished and accepted. But what about Jason Collins the NBA five?
He hasn’t set foot in a NBA locker room or court yet as an openly gay man. If he doesn’t, what does that mean for this sociopolitical sports milestone?
The Detroit Pistons cheer team is looking for male and female cheerleaders when auditions are held for the 2013-14 Detroit Pistons cheer team on Sunday, August 25 at Cheerleading Training Center of Michigan.

Disgruntled point guard Brandon Jennings finally has a new home as the Milwaukee Bucks deal their point guard to the Detroit Pistons for Brandon Knight and two other players. The trade makes sense for both sides as the Bucks rid themselves of their unhappy floor leader while the Pistons add another big name player this off-season.
You haven’t heard of former Detroit Pistons in-arena hostess Erin Nicole yet, but I guarantee you won’t forget the name after seeing this post today. The singer, actress, spokesmodel continues the tradition of hot girls named Erin (Andrews, Sharoni, Hawksworth etc.) in sports media, and models becoming “journalists.”
Erin Nicole today works as a traffic and entertainment reporter for WXYZ Channel 7 in Detroit, an ABC affiliate.
I’m sure you’ll enjoy her “Naughty Schoolgirl” picture after the jump. I sure did.
