Will Bynum Thinks He Should Start

The Free-Press reports that Bynum, who recently signed a three-year, $9.75 million contract, wants to start. Tell that to Rodney Stuckey and Rip Hamilton: “He said he has a goal to hear his name called with the starting lineup on opening night in New Jersey on Oct. 27. ‘I’m looking forward to a great year,’ Bynum said. ‘I don’t think for one second that the money I’m making makes me a reserve. I just want to clear that up from the beginning. I think that the money that I’m making gives me the opportunity to excel, and I’m trying to do it.’”

    Lol. What are they doing in Detroit?! Running a 5 guard set?

  • andy

    i forsee severe turmoil for the pistons.
    - tay and rip might be traded
    - tmac’s going to b**ch
    - ownership problems
    - no decent point guard (stuckey’s a combo guard)

    on the bright side though…what’s going to happen with Austin Daye? he’s kinda like a 6’11 stephen curry.

  • MVPballer

    Haha a 6’11 Curry. Good one.

    Damn this team is filled with overrated and overpaid guys everywhere.


    Me thinks Dumars has lost it. Signed, David Kahn

    Team Implode.

  • Overtime

    Ah Will, when will you learn, money has nothing to do with it, its about what you do on the court. ANd unfortunately, Stuckey and Rip still do more than you

  • Sam

    Will is really trying to say that he wants Stuckey’s job, and that they should trade Rip, so Stuckey can play the 2 and Bynum plays the 1.

  • larrylegend

    eh…why there is no news/article yet on yesterday’s HoF ceremony?!? WHY!!!!

  • Robb

    “this team is filled with overrated and overpaid guys everywhere.”

    That sums it up pretty good.

  • tavoris

    Dumars needs to blow this team up ASAP…but then again, points guards are available in Indiana and Toronto. Chemistry seems to be a problem ever since Billups stopped covering up everyone’s mistakes.

  • Shem

    Bynum, Stuckey, Tmac, Gordon, Rip.. not enough minutes to go around

  • Hussman25

    Bynum should dominate in the pistons system…..my bad I thought we were talking about Andrew!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Pardeep

    Everyone keeps forgetting that T-Mac can play the 3. LOL

  • Jacob (from Australia)

    From the above quote, I think that’s what the Pistons would want? It’s all positive talk. He wants to excel, I say let him do that.
    Half of you guys will really hate on anything hey?

  • drosefan13

    Who really cares about the Pistons these days anyway? lol. They’re going to need a miracle to get back to relevancy anytime soon.

  • http://itsahardwoodlife.blogspot.com omphalos

    Sure T-mac can play the 3, but when they have good young talent at Jerebko and Daye at that position having McGrady play there isn’t a great thing for the team. Pistons need to be rebuilt around Monroe, Daye, Jerebko and Stuckey. Get rid of the rest while they still have value.

  • Yesse

    Pistons should really trade alot of players, like Will here. I believe Rodney is a better player than him and Pistons have been struggling for a long time and they just get worse after every season.

    Good Will Bynum…. but it won’t happen.

  • WangChung

    Will is a bit undersized for my liking, but I do like his enthusiasm. A few 1-on-1 sessions with Stuckey should clear things up for him though.

  • http://slamonline.com Jacob J

    Will is right, he should start. Trade RIP (even though I dont want to see that but things happen) and move Rodney over to Rips spot. Will is a little better point guard than Rodney and Rodney acts like he’s more comfortable at the 2 guard so I think it could work.

    Larry Legend you right this is a basketball mag fansite and all I can read about is some BullS#@% about some kid going to play with coach Cal and Will Bynum wanting to start?
    Sheed is retiring and there is no article on a Shoe in HOFer?
    Are Y’all losing it?
    I miss Scoop

  • total scrotal implosion

    Stuck is better at the 2 and will sees that. Rip and tay should be traded, tmac shouldnt have been signed. That team is in disarray, but they have lots of young talent, very big positive there

  • http://www.slamonline.com J

    the title is a little misleading.. at first glance i thought it was andrew bynum..

  • http://www.slamonline.com J

    gordon makes more money than will bynum and gordon doesnt start..

  • ES

    I know Will from Israel some years ago. He is very talented player but he has no brain at all!!!

  • Coney Islander

    so their gonna play a 12 guard rotation, should be fun to watch :o /

  • jeremiah

    Bynum.. calm down dude.. be a reserve and b happy
