Joe Dumars

 

According to Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News, the Detroit Pistons and team president Joe Dumars, are set to go their separate ways after the this season has reached its conclusion.

The Pistons aren’t in the playoffs for the fourth straight season and they’ve been irrelevant for a lot longer, as they’re almost 10 years removed from their championship season under Larry Brown.

It’s been a long run for team president Joe Dumars, but league sources say that Dumars’ reign will soon be coming to a close. Dumars is so entrenched and such an iconic figure from his playing days, we’ll believe it when we see it. But it sure sounds as if he’s on his way out, along with Lawrence Frank, who is finishing his second season as coach.

I thought Joe Dumars should’ve lost his job after using the Pistons cap space to sign Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva to long-term deals, that’s when it became clear that he had lost his mind. The ring protection he received after Detroit upset the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2004 NBA Finals has expired.
