The Knee Jerks - Detroit Sports Talk with Eno and Big Al - Ray Scott

  Broadcast in Sports

Call in to speak with the host

On today's show: The Knee Jerks talk hoops past and present with our latest "very special guest", former Detroit Pistons great, as both a player in the 60's and head coach from '72-'76, Ray Scott. Scott won the NBA Coach of the Year award in 1974 when he led the long downtrodden Pistons to the playoffs with 52-30 regular season record. Even though Scott was the most successful coach in Pistons' history to that point, he was fired by new owner Bill Davidson halfway through the '76 season. Scott then went on to be head coach of the Eastern Michigan (then known as the ) Hurons from '76 to '79. In 2008 Scott was elected to the Michigan Sports Hall of Fame, and selected to be a part of the Pistons' All-Time team, as one of the "30 All-Time Pistons." We're looking forward to talking old school NBA with Scott, who was the last coach hired by the Pistons founding owner, the eccentric Fred Zollner. We'll also touch base with Ray the on Michigan Sports Hall of Fame, and the serious financial issues it is now facing. After our interview with Ray Scott, we'll ponder the past week in Detroit sports, including the following... Tigers: Is Aubrey Huff the solution to what ails the offense, the beanball fest, brawl & fallout in Boston, the struggle to hit with RISP, Justin Verlander's credentials as both an Ace and a Cy Young candidate, are role players placed in situations almost guaranteeing failure, how valuable is Brandon Inge, and the never-ending road woes. Lions: The exhibition opener, a win over the Falcons, pick a QB, Culppeper or Stafford, the pluses and minuses we saw on-field & Charles Rogers admitting he was a Cheech & Chong level pothead. Mike Vick: Does Vick have anything left after being in prison for nearly 2 years? If he’s lost a couple of steps, is Vick just a more infamous version of Mike McMahon? We end the show by naming our respective Jerk of the Week! Be here at 11PM for the latest and greatest in sports talk...sports talk with a Detroit attitude!
