    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Former Detroit Pistons coach Chuck Dalyhas been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

    The team says Friday that Daly "is being treated for the cancer and his family is requesting privacy."

    Daly coached the Pistons to NBA championships in 1989 and 1990. He also was the coach of the 1992 gold medal-winning US Olympic squad dubbed the "DreamTeam." He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1994.

    Family spokesman Matt Dobek says in the release that as a coach Daly was "known as the Prince of Pessimism, right now Chuck Daly is the King ofOptimism."

    Hopefully this will be just like Swayze's case of pancreatic cancer.

    Man, I can't imagine how horrible it is to get the news from the doc that you have cancer. I don't know if I could handle it. Hope I just get a goodold fashion heart attack instead, God damn cancer.
