On tonight's big show: We have a special guest for our first show at our new 7PM start time! The Knee Jerks will interview former Detroit Pistons General Manager Jack McCloskey! Known as "Trader" Jack during his days in Detroit, McCloskey was the architect behind the legendary Bad Boys teams. Jack was GM of the Pistons from 1979 to 1992, and as you all know, won NBA championships in 1989 and 1990. In 2008, the Pistons honored the man who turned the Pistons into one of the NBA's model franchises by raising his name into the rafters of The Palace, alongside many of the players he either drafted (Isiah Thomas, Joe Dumars) or traded for (Bill Laimbeer, Vinnie Johnson). We'll get Jack's thoughts on the current state of the Pistons and the NBA. We'll also reminisce about the wild, wonderful 1980's, the era when Jack took a long-time league doormat, and with smart drafting and smarter (sometimes risky) trades, turned the Pistons into an NBA power. After we spend time with one of the best GM's in Detroit sports history, the Jerks will turn our thoughts over to the past week in Detroit sports. At the end of the show, we'll also name our respective Jerk of the Week! Be here at 11PM every Monday night for the latest and greatest in sports talk...sports talk with a Detroit attitude!
