Pistons’ Van Gundy Defends Josh Smith

Detroit Pistons players and coach Stan Van Gundy said they did not hear the groans from fans when Josh Smith missed his last two shots in a 2-for-17 shooting night in Wednesday’s 98-95 victory over the New York Knicks.

But it wasn’t surprising to hear a strong defense of Smith from his coach after today’s short Pistons practice.

“I could (not) care less what the crowd thinks about shot selection,” Van Gundy said. “I’ve heard all day now about, obviously Josh went 2-for-17, but nobody’s talking about one of the top three scorers went (5-for-21), only got to the free-throw line four times and he (Smith) got 10 rebounds — and he had five assists. Nobody’s talking about any of that.”

Steve Ballmer: Clippers Moving to Inglewood ‘come hell or high water’

“I love L.A. I also love my wife, by the way, but I love L.A. and I don’t want there to be any mistake about it. We want to be part of the fabric of this community,” said [Steve] Ballmer, who stepped down as Microsoft’s CEO early in 2014, shortly before he rescued the Clippers from the clutches of disgraced Donald Sterling and bought the franchise for $2 billion.

“We’re moving to Inglewood come hell or high water,” he said of a proposed arena near the site of the stadium being constructed for the Rams and Chargers. “We gotta have a house. So we’re working on a plan to get our own house. We want to get our own house. It turns out the way this works in L.A., which is much beloved to me, that if you start now you might be done in six years.” He then urged fans to contact their Assembly representative and state senator to urge approval of legislation that would accelerate the process. He probably inspired more than a few emails and phone calls.
