Published: April 9, 2014
We’re know-nothings when it comes to basketball, but we’ve heard the Detroit Pistons have been having a difficult time shooting hoops lately. Luckily for them, a former Hall of Fame guard of theirs is on the prowl for a new career! We’re not entirely sure what the former Detroit mayor’s true accomplishments were besides restoring the integrity of the office (!) and reliably showing up for ribbon-cutting ceremonies. Some readers seem to agree, offering bleak job prospects for the former businessman such as “Sad Old Man at the End of the Bar” or “Filling Potholes.” In the end, the obvious pick won the round, as most felt he’d be a great fit to put the Pistons back on track.
