Most already had boarded the team bus destined for the Ritz-Carlton, but Rodney Stuckey was a straggler Wednesday afternoon. The Pistons had just concluded practicing at the Orlando Sports Center, and Stuckey stayed behind momentarily to receive treatment from strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander for the many injuries that have beset him recently. During these moments, onlookers usually take the opportunity to rub shoulders with genuine NBA players -- and this day was no different as a teen approached Stuckey. He asked "Mr. Knight" to take a picture. Stuckey, realizing the teen was referring to rookie point guard Brandon Knight, told him "wrong guy." The teen started to look uncomfortable, but Stuckey gave him a hint by telling him he wore No. 3 and then posed for the picture.
