Lawrence Frank - Frank has returned to coaching. His Pistons have had a rough start losing to both the Pacers and the Cavs.

Some former Israel players have also appeared. Anthony Parker has also started both games for the Cavs adding 4 ass, 1.5 rbs, and 5.5 pts. The Piston’s Will Bynum has played in one game and added 6 points. The Warrior’s rookie Jeremy Tyler Has appeared in both games albeit playing very limited minutes. He has chipped in 1 point.
