ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Detroit Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks has a long history of interaction with the fans. Years ago, while serving as coach of the Portland Trail Blazers, he famously came to the rescue of a young girl who had forgotten the lyrics to the national anthem.

So it may not have been a surprise to see Cheeks, now coaching the Pistons, turn up in the front row last night during a game in Detroit. Coaches and teams are assigned front row seats, obviously, but Cheeks seems to have appropriated an empty seat somewhere down the line next to a couple of lucky female fans.
