There seems to be a common theme among fans commenting on Rodney Stuckey's latest run-in with Pistons coach John Kuester.

They seem to think the restricted free agent is costing himself money as he seeks a contract for next season and beyond.

If folks think that, they haven't been paying attention.

To review, for the third time this season Stuckey was disciplined by Kuester after a confrontation with the second-year coach.

He was benched for Sunday's loss at Boston because he refused to re-enter the fourth quarter of Friday's home loss to the Bulls on the night the Pistons retired Dennis Rodman's No. 10.

He was benched for the sixth game of the season when he ignored Kuester during a game and was relegated to the bench after one of the best four-game stretches of his career after a confrontation during practice.

And that doesn't even count when he showed up late to a shoot-around on the day there was a planned boycott directed at Kuester by at least half the team.

But if a team decides to tender Stuckey an offer sheet this off-season (the Pistons can match), those teams will have to decide if Stuckey or Kuester is the problem.
