Bring in the headline police…I know this one sucks. But what else can I say after hearing the latest from Charlie Villenueva?

You remember him right? Charlie, our good buddy. Our big free agent signing this summer…yeah that guy. Well Chuckles decided after yet another DNPCD (that’s Did not play coaches decision for you non hoops geeks) and in case you didn’t know it’s pretty rare for a guy to open his mouth after his coach has essentially put him in timeout.

Well Charlie isn’t any usual guy. Oh no kids. No, V decided he was gonna mock his coach tonight. What a treat! Hey it’s more than he did on the floor tonight right?

The following is a dramatic reading of the Q and A.

Are you and Kuester on the same page?


How ridiculous. Mockingly laughing as the press wasted their time asking you a question. Yeah, mock the coach who is so annoyed with your bruiting, your pouting, your constant tweeting (had to sorry), that he has decided to simply move on without you. Yes Charlie, point the finger at Kuester. Yup, it’s his fault you don’t rebound, don’t rotate, don’t guard, and simply don’t care.  Amazing, simply amazing. In most cases a guy who got DNP’d puts his clothes on in shame and goes home. No talking. No laughing. Nothing. Start the Bentley and off he goes.

Villenueva has been so pathetic, yes pathetic people, that Keuster cannot even use him. Please note the Pistons have the worst front court in basketball. Once again…6’11 with range out to the 3-point line and solid athletic ability…cannot/will not use him.

Yeah, you gotta be a pretty bad guy or at least a pretty big child to get yourself in that spot. Look in the mirror Charles. Well check that, look in your wallet then the mirror.

Tonight was icing on the cake. Mockingly laughing when you know exactly who will hear it marks the low point for what has been a year long depth charge for the biggest free agent bust of the season. What the future holds is very murky. Dumars has always corrected mistakes in short order. Hello Mateen, Nazr  and yes Darko… But this one is going to be tough. This cadaver has 4-more years left on a pretty sizable deal. Pretty simple… It goes one of two ways.

1. Charlie pulls his head out of the sand. Has an Epiphany with his coach and GM and comes into camp next fall ready for blood.


2. He lives the life of Jerome James…Wiki that waste of skin.

I’ll give Charlie the beginning of next year to figure his career out.  I wonder if Joe will wait that long?
