Will Barton has heard all about his perceived detractors: He's too skinny, too unorthodox and too undisciplined. But Thursday night, he was an NBA draft pick. It may have taken longer than he'd hoped, but Barton - a swingman out of Memphis - went at No. 40 to the Portland Trail Blazers. He will join All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge on a team that finished a disappointing 28-38 last season, missing the playoffs for the first time in three years. Four picks later, guard Kim English, a Baltimore native who played at Randallstown and then Missouri, was drafted by the Detroit Pistons with the 44th overall pick in the second round.

The roots of Detroit's raucous reputation as a sports town go deep. Seventy years ago, Tigers fans pelted St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Joe "Ducky" Medwick with garbage during the seventh game of the 1934 World Series. Provoked by Medwick's mettle on the bases - he had just spiked a Detroit player - the crowd took aim. Bottles, shoes and rotten tomatoes flew at Medwick for 20 minutes. Enough, said baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis, who ejected the Cardinals Hall of Famer "for his own good."

LANDOVER -- A week ago when the Washington Bullets had won three of four games, there was a real sense of progress. They spoke of more wins, a new attitude and making a statement over the final stretch of the season.The statement made last night: There's a long, long way to go. That's the only conclusion one could draw after a Detroit Pistons team that had lost seven of their previous eight road games, came back from an early 14-point deficit to cruise to a 114-105 win before 13,011 at USAir Arena.

BOSTON -- The sneaker sat in the paint, all by itself. The man who had been wearing it, Isiah Thomas, was now a few feet away, on his back, his face contorted in pain, grabbing the foot that had the sock on it. Even here, more than 100 miles away, you could hear the groan from Detroit: "Oh, no. Now what?"Now what, indeed? Thomas had been squaring up to defend a fourth-quarter drive by the Boston Celtics' Dee Brown, and Brown went into him, came down on his shoe, which stayed put, as if nailed to the ground, as Thomas went hurtling out of it. He did not get up. The other Pistons rushed across the floor.

He cried for the end of a powerful, if not critically acclaimed, reign by the Detroit team and because he, more than anyone, knows the extent of the changes to come.

Saunders, who lost in the Eastern Conference finals in each of his three seasons with the Pistons, said he didn't expect to hear raucous cheers when he was announced Sunday night. But what he heard might have been more surprising: apathy. A small crowd at the arena greeted Saunders mostly with silence.

Daly, who coached U.S., Pistons, is dead nba Chuck Daly, who coached the Dream Team to the Olympic gold medal in 1992 after winning back-to-back NBA championships with the Detroit Pistons, died Saturday morning in Jupiter, Fla., with his family by his side. He was 78. The Pistons announced in March that the Hall of Fame coach was being treated for pancreatic cancer. Daly was renowned for creating harmony out of diverse personalities at all levels of the game, whether they were Ivy Leaguers at Pennsylvania, Dream Teamers Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley, or Pistons as dissimilar as Dennis Rodman and Joe Dumars.
