On the other side, the Pistons have a lot of very young talent. When Drummond and Monroe learn to play together, look out that's filthy inside play offense and defense.
The Piston guards are smallish, they are missing the post up element a younger Billups used to torture Boston with. Causing the Defense to react and giving Tayshaun and Rip the shots from the corners.
I think Frank is a horrible coach. Totally exposed once Kidd left.
So there is a lot of work to be done on the Pistons but the talent is there.
One wonders, if the Pistons drafted Melo instead of Darko where would they be?
omg I completely forgot
It must suck to be a Pistons fan right now after a game such as last night. Melo would've secured another decade of productive basket-ball for this franchise.
It just shows you even when you win a championship in this league, you have to stay cautious about your decisions and think multiple times before drafting. Dumars thought he could afford a gamble after winning a ring as a GM, picking Darko over Melo, but he just F'd up.
Not only he passed on Melo, but also Bosh, Wade... The 2003 NBA draft was deep.
I agree the Pistons have a talented frontcourt, Monroe, Drummond, Maxiell are solid, but their backcourt is trash. Brandon Knight & Rodney Stuckey are just bad. I mean Will Bynum looked like the best player on the Pistons after watching these guys playing...
