We’ve reviewed some of the best trades in team history for the Detroit Pistons.

We looked at a trade with the Celtics, a mutually beneficial trade with the 76ers, and a trade with the Lakers that continues to give.

Today we’re on the Cleveland Cavaliers, a division rival the Detroit Pistons have traded with only five times since 1979, but two of them brought in players who would become Motor City icons.

The Detroit Pistons have made some bad decisions over the years, but these trades are not among them. One occurred on February 16, 1982, then another in October of the same year.

These trades rank among the most lopsided the Pistons have ever made and have helped bring several titles to Detroit.

Detroit Pistons: 2 exchanges with the Cavaliers set up the Bad Boys

The first exchange took place on February 16, 1982 and laid the foundation for the Bad Boys:

Jumpers get

Phil hubbard

Paul Mokeski

1st round draft pick (John Bagley)

2nd round draft pick (Dave Magley)

get pistons

Bill laimbeer

Kenny carr

The Pistons gave up two players and two draft picks for Bill Laimbeer and Kenny Carr, which worked very well for Detroit.

Hubbard had a good career for Cleveland, and John Bagley was a decent role player, but neither of them were really close to Laimbeer, who played 13 seasons in Detroit, made the four-star team. times, led the league in rebounds and won two titles.

Laimbeer became a part of the founding part of the Bad Boy Era, but Cleveland is not done helping the Pistons. This deal took place on October 7, 1982 and was arguably even better for the Detroit Pistons:

Jumpers get

Steve hayes

get pistons

1986 2nd round draft pick (Dennis Rodman)

This is the classic “You never know who’ll be a draft pick” trade as the Pistons ditched Steve Hayes, who was better at growing a mustache than playing basketball, for a pick. 2nd round which ended up being Dennis Rodman.

Rodman was the top 2nd round draft pick in Pistons history and another player whose defense, rebounds and non-stop engine defined the era of the Bad Boys.

Rodman formed two All-Star teams for the Detroit Pistons, led the NBA by bouncing seven times and ended up with five rings, not to mention a bizarre BFF relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un.

Off the field antics aside, Rodman is one of the best defensemen and rebounders in NBA history, and he and Laimbeer were part of the reasons the Pistons won two titles.

Thanks for that, Cleveland!

“Frank’s Family Feud” stoked by satire, songs in Green Bay Sat, 18 Sep 2021 15:00:00 +0000

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WFRV) – The first joke is that the “Family Feud” TV show came to host an audition at Van Abel’s of Hollandtown (a real dining / banquet establishment east of Kaukauna).

The second joke is that everyone seems to be called Van.

The third joke is that the emcee of the audition is Steve Harvae, not to be confused with Steve Harvey, who is seen on air.

The next joke is that the show lives up to its title because the families who audition really quarrel. The husband of one and the wife of the other are divorced from each other. There’s mud galore – comedic in the case of “Frank’s Family Feud,” the latest creation from Green Bay’s Let Me Be Frank Productions.

Performances began Friday night at the Meyer Theater in downtown Green Bay. The program of the show includes outings to Kiel, Manitowoc and Marinette.

Yes, like the title says, the show is fueled by satire and song. But it’s more than simple.

Frank’s shows are showcases for singing. This is also the case with “Frank’s Family Feud”, with one difference: in accordance with what happens in the story, the titles of the songs and / or the subjects deal with games or fights. This means that some songs are acts that would not normally be heard in a Frank – Amy Winehouse show; Emerson, Lake & Palmer, Peter Gabriel and other dealers in the dark.

As it turns out, this prime musical landscape features the lead guitar a lot, so talented Dennis Panneck is featured in rich display after rich display.

The story demands that the master of ceremonies play a major role, so Tom Verbrick’s talents train completely in the end-to-end relationships with the goofs of both families while going through the all-cog process. Of the “Family Feud”. Game. Tom Verbrick is on stage all the time in a kind of high-flying comedy. It is formidable as Steve Harvae is hung on the cliff of despair but still manages to have some control. The chiropractor candidate is a problem, however. Steve Harvae is caught in a series of agonizing chiropractic crunches before making his way to the next candidate. Hilarious stuff.

The characters still drive Frank’s stories. This show teases the particular types that appear on television. The odious-icity fills “Frank’s Family Feud”.

Prime is Sarah Galati as a self-centered social media influencer. She comically defines the sheer selfishness of what an influencer is. The byplay that Sarah Galati has with her stage mom Lisa Borley is also spectacular.

And then there’s the character played by Pat Hibbard, a pillar of the troupe that wrote this show. Pat Hibbard wrote to himself as a veteran combat infantry sergeant with a bullet on his shoulder and many bullets outside his psyche. He glares at him. Loud noises make one shudder as if they are injured. His brain appears to be a dark, damp, and dangerous place – but a strangely comical lair.

Pat Hibbard also wrote this screenplay for Zach Hibbard (his son) and Blake Matthews Hermans (Frank Hermans’ son): They are twins and believe they are, even though everyone knows they are not alike. . In the story, they became twins because one is slow and was held up in school for a few years and is now in the same class as his brother… making them twins. That’s Pat Hibbard’s cosmic humor.

With the singers carrying these characters, the songs have foundations for the expression of meaning. Along the way, the soaring beauty of Lisa Borley, the flowing color of Amy Riemer, the sorrowful tones of Sarah Galati, the soulful sensibility of Blake Matthews Hermans, the rock feel of Zach Hibbard, the intoxicating rock of Pat Hibbard and the range of landscapes by Frank Hermans. In “Wicked Game”, Frank Hermans takes a sort of haunting moan into the lyrics.

The group trains this entourage in all kinds of fields. Most vivid are the showcases that end the first act and begin the second as the troupe explodes into song and dance behind Amy Riemer in “Fighter” and Frank Hermans in “Play That Funky Music”, respectively. Due to the game / combat effect in song choices, many (like “Fighter”) are not necessarily entertaining hits (like “Play That Funky Music”). Take “Fighter” or “Mind Games” or “Love is a Losing Game”. Imagine a glass of grapefruit juice. Take a sip. Your head is banging. It’s them.

“Frank’s Family Feud” is another Frank show. But they are all different. This is the 127e Franck’s show. One hundred and twenty-seven… all on a large scale, something new with familiar things, often with local touches, always full of color, live bands and vocal demonstrations, always anything but simple. Applause, applause. No kidding.

Washington St. in downtown Green Bay, the Meyer is one of the state’s colorful historic theaters. In its current form, the Robert T. Meyer Theater opened on February 27, 2002. It can accommodate approximately 1,000 people. The building dates much further back. It opened on February 14, 1930, as one of the lavish Fox Theaters. The place is picturesque. The inner aura of the theater was its saving grace towards the end of the 20e century, when the building faced an uncertain fate. The architectural / decorative style is defined as the Spanish atmosphere. The auditorium is designed in the style of a Moorish courtyard of yesteryear. The eclectic mix of architectural styles and colors can be found in all of the halls.

THE PEOPLE: Robert Meyer was President and CEO of Tape Inc. of Green Bay. The theater took its name at the request of his wife, Betty (Janet Elizabeth) Rose Meyer, whose financial contribution at a crucial time helped revitalize the building. The Rose family has a history of deep commitment and involvement in the well-being of Green Bay. Robert Meyer died in 1984, Betty Rose Meyer in 2008.

Grant Street – Now Home to 32 Plot Flower Gardens – Buffalo Rising Sat, 18 Sep 2021 13:17:29 +0000

I tend to fight on Grant Street when it comes to trash. For years I have said the street is messy, despite many attempts to keep it clean. Many of my “This Week In Litter” posts have been spurred on by the trash and waste issues that Grant Street and West Ferry intersect.

To my unexpected surprise, three community activists took to the streets – Grant Street, that is – to tackle the problem of the scourge. These community volunteers – Bill Lindner, Marcia Panzarella and Sharon Danna – have gone above and beyond with their beautification initiatives which include cleaning and planting numerous flower beds.

Once pits of flowers and drab trees filled with debris, these abandoned and forgotten flowerbeds are now teeming with life thanks to a selfless Herculean effort that has seen the planting and ongoing maintenance of 32 flower gardens and patches of grass. ornamental along Grant Street.

Before the start of the clean-up efforts | 7 Eleven is always a mess no matter the street unfortunately

“A couple of friends and I decided we wanted to beautify the 32 plots of land on Grant Street that consisted of broken planters and massive weeds,” said Sharon Danna. “So we received soil and split flowers from my personal flower bed. So began our passion for beautifying Grant Street. We water and weed 7 days a week for a few hours a day and this year Henry Jackson (Public Works Department) hired one of his employees named “Poppy” to hand sweep W Ferry in Auburn 5 days a week. “

Again, this shows that more often than not persistence pays off. When caring community members come together to participate in the clean-up and beautification efforts, the City is generally willing to help. What is particularly poignant about this latest effort is the scale of the project.

“No other street in Buffalo has so many flower beds,” Danna said. “They’re perennials, so they flower at different times – right now ornamental grasses are in full bloom. “

The difference is unreal

If you are wondering why three people would devote their time and effort to such a business, it’s actually pretty straightforward.

“Because we saw litter and weeds and knew we could change the streetscape with flowers from my gardens at home,” Danna said.

Now, if that isn’t the best answer to solving a problem, I don’t know what it is. All I can say is … thank you, from anyone who cares about a cleaner Buffalo. Perception is the key. If you want more buyers and business owners on the streets, one of the easiest ways to do this is to show people that you care. Keeping a clean street is one thing. Planting flowers is another.

Ongoing maintenance is the icing on the cake, but how long can we expect it to last?

The City must develop a plan to keep all of its trade corridors clean. In the meantime, we can only hope and pray for caring community members to come to the rescue, as we are now seeing with this incredible show of dedication on Grant Street.

Corvettes, Bomb Threats and Spock: Revisiting Jimi Hendrix’s Crazy 1968 Tour Sat, 18 Sep 2021 09:26:04 +0000

CLEVELAND, Ohio – It might be hard to believe now, but there was a time when Jimi Hendrix wasn’t such a well-known guitar god.

By 1968 Hendrix had become a big star in Europe. But he had yet to break into the United States. That all changed after The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s 1968 US tour.

The latest episode of the CLE Rocks podcast looks back on this whirlwind race that took Hendrix and his comrades from coast to coast, ultimately paving the way for some of the best performances of their careers, including a memorable stop in Cleveland and a series of dates at Winterland Arena in San Francisco this fall.

[Listen to CLE Rocks Presents…Jimi Hendrix’s 1968 American Tour is part of our CLE Rocks Podcast series. Listen to the entire episode and more on Apple, Spotify or Acast]

The Jimi Hendrix Experience stop in Cleveland on March 26, 1968 included two sold-out shows at Music Hall. But Hendrix made sure to immerse himself in the city. He took part in an impromptu jam session at the famous Otto’s Grotto concert hall, smoked a joint with Leonard Nimoy, aka Spock from “Star Trek”, and bought a Corvette Stingray from a Shaker Heights dealership which he would later totalize. during this year.

The Cleveland Shows took place at a time when Hendrix established his star power in the United States, becoming the highest paid performer in music.

Empire State Wrestling returns to Buffalo RiverWorks with “4th and Gold” – Buffalo Rising Fri, 17 Sep 2021 23:54:41 +0000

Buffalo RiverWorks is proving to be a driving force behind the resurgence of local wrestling in WNY. Help lead the way is a 35-year-old referee, promoter and wrestler David Jarka. Jarka noted that Brett Stymus is currently promoting Empire State Struggle‘s (ESW) returns to RiverWorks, after a very successful first edition in July, with Brawlfest. I asked Jarka what he thought of the buzz generated by the local wrestling scene.

“Since covid regulations were relaxed significantly over the summer, the wrestling scene in Buffalo has seen a lot of buzz,” Jarka said. “There had been no local wrestling for about 18 months and fans across the region were eager to rekindle the magic you can only experience at a live independent wrestling event.”

As for the resurgence of wrestling in Buffalo and the birth of ESW, Jarka said, “ESW started in the Tonawanda area and was traditionally concentrated in Niagara County. The product presented by ESW at its events has always been solid. But a few years ago, there was an added focus on building local talent with notable out-of-state wrestlers and wrestling legends, as well as an extra effort to raise awareness of the events. . After doing these things, we saw a significant increase in fan support which brought us to a new level locally that no other promotion in the region has been able to reach. It also led ESW to outgrow some of its traditional venues and take place in larger venues such as RiverWorks. And the response we got while running there in July was tremendous. I think focusing more on a central location like RiverWorks makes it easier for fans to attend ESW events and will allow us to grow even more.

The latest wrestling review is billed as “4th and Gold,” which is scheduled to take place on Sunday, October 10, 2021. General admission tickets are on sale now, although first and second row tickets are sold out.

ESW is the first independent wrestling promotion in western New York State.

Not only will the show feature top independent talent from the region, there will also be a number of wrestlers from the national circuit, including “a renowned match featuring two of the ring’s top talent in today’s independent wrestling scene. “

Matches that take place at “4th and Gold” include:

  • Two major comebacks will occur in one match: 1) Newly featured in All-Elite Wrestling, ESW “Red Death” heavyweight champion Daniel Garcia will defend the title against former Impact Wrestling star Davey Richards 2) Former ESW “Big Time” Heavyweight Champion Bill Collier Against Return Of Impact Wrestling Star Ace Romero
  • In tag team action, premier Maine State Posse (Aiden Aggro and DangerKid) will face off against staples ESW To Infinity & Beyond (ex-Ring of Honor Cheech star and former World Wrestling Entertainment star Colin Delaney)
  • Another tag team will make their ESW debut when The Mane Event (Duke Davis and Ganon Jones Jr.) takes on ESW regulars High Seas (former Ring of Honor star Cloudy and “Your Captain” Nick Ando)
  • A special interpromotion match showcasing the talent of the New Jersey-based Northern Federation of Wrestling, when TJ Crawford makes his ESW Buffalo debut against St. Louis, Mo.-based Everett Connors.
  • First-ever “Buffalo Tables Match” to feature “Invincible” Vince Valor vs. Syracuse, New York’s “The Moonlight Son” Mike Skyros
  • A “12th Man Battle Royale” where the winner will take a title against ESW Interstate champion Frankie Feathers later in the night

Check out ESW’s social media for additional match announcements ahead of the day of the event. General admission tickets are $ 20. Tickets can be purchased at The start time for “4th and Gold” will be earlier than typical ESW events, as it will lead to the Buffalo Bills-Kansas City Chiefs game later in the evening. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. with a bell at 3:00 p.m.

Detroit-area woman charged with assault on aerial flight Fri, 17 Sep 2021 17:24:55 +0000

Woman Charged with Assaulting Woman and Calling Her Racial Insult on Spirit Airlines Flight to Detroit Arrested

ROMULUS, Michigan – A woman accused of assaulting a woman and calling her a racial insult on a Spirit Airlines flight to Detroit was arraigned on Friday.

Alexandra Farr, 39, of Roseville, faces charges of ethnic intimidation and assault. The victim was a black Muslim woman.

Farr appeared in 34th District Court and was released on personal bail of $ 7,500, according to the Wayne County District Attorney’s Office.

Farr and another passenger on a flight on Saturday were involved in a verbal confrontation when Farr allegedly called the 29-year-old victim a racial insult. The victim then began recording the meeting on her cell phone, prosecutors said. It was then that Farr allegedly struck the woman’s hand.

Farr was later arrested by airport police. She was also accused of being a disorderly person.

“The alleged activity of this accused was completely inappropriate and quickly elevated to criminal activity,” said prosecutor Kym Worthy. “Racist rants have become much more common in recent times and we will not hesitate to take action when we can legally do so. “

Court records have yet to identify a defense attorney for Farr who could comment on the allegations.

A probable causes conference was scheduled for September 29.

Pinte for Poke: Proof of Vaccination Grants Free Beer to Green Bay Residents | WFRV Local 5 Fri, 17 Sep 2021 14:37:57 +0000

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (WFRV) – As Wisconsin continues to see an increase in coronavirus cases, businesses and health departments have offered all they can to encourage people to get the vaccine. From cash and food, to store discounts and even free meat, Wisconsinites have apparently seen it all – until now.

On Thursday, Opportunity Wisconsin and Noble Roots Brewing Company joined forces to host a “Pint for Poke” vaccination event. This event offered a free pint of beer to the first 65 adults who showed their COVID-19 vaccination card.

“We are hosting our very first Pint for Poke event in this region. So we partnered up with a local brewery, Noble Roots Brewing Company in Green Bay, and if you come showing proof of vaccination, be it a vaccination card or mobile vaccination card , you get a free pint of beer, ”shared Green Bay Regional Lead Opportunity Wisconsin, Claire Westlund.

The event took place at the Noble Roots Brewing Company located at 2790 University Avenue, Green Bay, and follows another successful “Pint for Poke” event held in Milwaukee the previous week.

Opportunity Wisconsin held COVID-19 vaccine incentive events throughout the summer in Badger State, including a series of ‘Shot for Shot’ events where residents were given a free coffee drink or espresso with proof of vaccination.

Sex Actually with Alice Levine probes Britain’s most intimate encounters Fri, 17 Sep 2021 14:00:56 +0000

TV updates

With her broad, disarming gaze and friendly demeanor, Alice Levine has a way of asking the most direct questions about people’s sex lives without offending anyone. I’m not talking about the “How many dildos do you own?” Or “Were you lying about your penis size?” variety as much as the straightforward question “How much money do you make?” ”

The couple Geordie, Jack, 27, and Kayla, 21, gave up their jobs (decorator and sandwich maker) to explore, as Levine puts it, “the new frontier of the gig economy in Britain”. They are part of a seemingly growing trend of “cam couples”, broadcasting their intimate encounters live to the benefit of paying clients. The pair of chuckles brings Levine into their bedroom, where a cat sleeps next to a row of sex toys, and allows him to sit down during their next session (luckily, that doesn’t involve the cat). “I wasn’t prepared for the reality of watching two people have sex just two meters from my face,” she recalls afterward.

At the very least, Levine learned from his previous Channel 4 documentary on extreme right-wing extremist attitudes to focus on charming participants. Nikita and Sam, 24 and 29, a chic biker couple from Bournemouth, have a whiteboard showing their strict sex schedule. They each have an OnlyFans account to maintain (a subscription platform), as well as their couples’ sessions. Sam is the size of a chintz covered sofa and has the same pattern as well, with tattoos on her arms and neck and in her hair. “90 percent of my fans are men,” he reveals. Nikita, on the other hand, can win a pony just for calling someone a “dirty bitch”.

Soft-spoken Scottish couple Cole and Callum are big earners on Chaturbate, the adult webcam site, with an average of 15 million views of their energetic content per month. Subscribers pay in tokens, choosing from a large menu of sex acts. Levine: “This is quite the options page. Dressed in unpretentious hoodies and sweatpants, the pair jump onto the bed to demonstrate the positions that look “really good” on camera: the price goes up to 280 tokens for. . . a very explicit act (I do not state it.)

Despite the franchise, this first episode of the three-part series, of which Louis Theroux was executive producer, is not really about sex, but about love. The way these couples look at each other is downright adorable. Jack’s on-screen porn patter might be hilarious, but afterward he assures Levine, “I’m saying sorry.”


On Channel 4 from September 22 at 10 p.m.
