Detroit gave $20 million to Jodie Meeks, and this is exactly why they won’t win more than 35 games next season #writeitinmagicmarker

Jodie Meeks got 20 million to play in Detroit. Which seems to have too many guards already and the lowest basketball iq ever

Spending 200 on sunglasses doesn't make me feel as bad when I see what the Pistons spent on Jodie Meeks.

I don’t know what it feels like to purchase 200$ shades, but let me tell you — I’d sign Jodie Meeks a thousand times over before I wore sunglasses at night.
