Pistons Foward Jonas Jerebko is Unhappy in Detroit

It’s so cold in the D for Jonas Jerebko. The Swedish forward’s old man told media outlets back home that his son doesn’t like riding the pine for the Detroit Pistons, and of course, the younger Jerebko tried to deflect the story when asked about it by the local press. Per the Detroit News: “The Swedish National Coach, Jonte Karlsson, and Jerebko’s father, Chris, were both quoted (through translation) as being unhappy with Jerebko being relegated to the bench. ‘It’s no fun,’ Jerebko said in the story. ‘I guess there’s not much more to say, than this is not something I’m used to, or that I will get used to, either. And I’m disappointed. I continue to do what I always do. I know that this will not be too long. I know there are teams out there that want me, but I do not really know what’s going on.’ [...] Jerebko has only played in 14 games this season, having been persona non grata since late November. He struggled for a good two weeks before Pistons coach Lawrence Frank sat him and Jerebko’s marks of 5.6 points, three rebounds on 37 percent shooting are all career lows. Jerebko did not play in Tuesday’s 105-90 victory over the Magic. The elder Jerebko said he hopes Frank isn’t around next season. ‘I didn’t see the story so I don’t know what’s said,’ Jonas Jerebko said in the Pistons locker room before Tuesday’s game. ‘Everybody has a right to their own opinion.’”

    so it was done…Jonas Jerebko went on his hands and knees and prayed to the good lord above…withi his hands clasped he started to recite “Dear God, see my name is JOnas and i play for the Pistons, but i dont actually play cause coach has me on the bench..” to his amazement the clouds above separated and the gates of heaven opened up and before his very own eyes the good Lord appeared above him and spoke…”Jeremy”…”but my name is Jonas”….”IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!”…”you see there is a reason why you don’t play, a deep rooted reason..its cause you absolutely suck!!”

    this was the good word that Jonas was told by the almighty one himself.

    He’s the Will Bynum of forwards. Shame hes rotting away on the bench when he could be helping the Pistons chase those elusive playoffs.
