Why wasn't Ron Artest arrested for assault?

He still might be. Detroit prosecutors are reviewing all the tape of the event to see if they can make a felony battery charge stand up in court. They have to be on solid ground because Artest is a millionaire, and he can hire as many lawyers as he needs, who can spend as much time and money as they need to to, for example, get the videotape of the incident ruled inadmissible because of some arcane property rule. The district attorney's office doesn't want to be embarrassed by bringing charges and having them dismissed. Two laws in this world, one for us, one for the rich.

The real reason is because Ron Artest was assaulted first. Each fan that was attacked either threw cups of water, threw a punch, or walked up aggressively in the middle of a brawl to the players. They were consenting to a fight. If you throw water at somebody, you're consenting to a punch in the face, and you can't try to screw the person you attacked with legal charges.

Why is the Pistons' emblem a horse?

I think that a piston is a kind of horse. I believe that it is not a purebred breed if horse, though. it stands for HORSEPOWER! A Modern Look In keeping up with the latest fashion trends, the Pistons changed their team colors to teal, black, yellow and red during the summer of 1996. The horse's head and flaming mane, worn here by Joe Dumars, represented "horse power," holding consistent with Detroit's automotive theme.

How to block shots?

Work on your virticle leap. The higher you can jump, the easier it is to block. Wait till the ball leaves the hands of the shooter and is in the air, then jump. Make it a quick reaction to the shot. Even getting just a small piece of the ball will deflect the shot. Don't worry about getting your whole hand on it.

If the Pistons knew Elden Campbell would back on the team before he cleared waivers what stopped another team from claiming him?

Another team could have claimed him on waivers, but the Pistons knew that was extremely unlikely given his age, playing time, and salary. They were shocked when NJ claimed him after Utah waived him after the arroyo trade earlier in the year - they were expecting to get him back then. I'm still not sure why NJ claimed him - if it was to spite the pistons, they would not have waived him late in the year. The impression I get is that they claimed him partly to be mean, partly because they thought he might be a useful body to have around, and that they basically relented at the end and waived him at his request.

Where did the Pistons play their home basketball games immediately before moving to the Palace of Auburn Hills?

They played at the Pontiac Silverdome.

AnswerThe CAVERNOUS Pontiac silverdome, also home to the Lions at the time. It seated 70,000 or so IIRC. They would hang a gigantic screen across half of the stadium and basically just use one end. The court was rolled out and set up at one end of the football field. I went to several games there, including the NBA attendance record setter (55000 or so?) - they removed the screen and used the whole stadium - talk about nosebleed seats. I forget what the promotion was, but the tickets were nearly free.
