I hope I am wrong, but I fear that the problem is deeper. I think about his background, the fact he came to France at 9 with his mother and sisters, but not with his father. I don't know why he came here, but then he showed some matters with authority (fired from INSEP and U20 France).
Man your kinda scaring me. Casey said something about a few times throughout the season. Something like " I dont understand the kid and why he's not having the time of his life in his situation and just enjoying life" probably not exactly what he said cause I cant remember it that well but still it's kinda sounding like a trend.
1) If he really doesn't understand, I don't understand why he is a NBA head coach
2) Saying it to journalists is a disaster
3) did Pistons understand who they drafted?
I doubt they new a whole lot about him, being a Frenchie and all, plus I don't think they projected him as one of the players expected to be available at 15, so they may not have focused on him as in-depth as others expected to be available at 15.
Where the Pistons really blew it was trading away that #30 pick for nothing, the future would look a little better with KPJ on the team.
