Killian’s biggest issue seems to just be scoring. Great passes, disruptive defense tonight. But we might be waiting a while before this guy can give us an efficient 15. And that’s okay.

I guess my post triggered you. Kind of sad actually.

How is that 3-22 prediction going by the way? They're going to get their 3rd win already since your "proclamation" several games back.

Killian is terrorizing them defensively.

You can tell he was definately watching tape while he was out, looks so much better then he did early in the season.

Pistons might have asked too much of Hayes right away. I know this is OKC intentionally losing, but Hayes is making himself felt both offensively and defensively.

That said, Pistons need some defense down low. My goodness.

The fact that you think beating a Thunder team without Gilligus-Alexander and Lou Dort means were winning nine games is even more pathetic.

Yeah it's a weird universe where Pokousevski (literally not NBA ready) is getting minutes and Sekou is basically exiled


I’m with you on the logic but if Sekou isn’t doing the right things in practice or showing the right effort or comprehending what’s asked of him, it’s a bad precedent to just gift him minutes.


Sure, and I am in no way against that merit based distribution of minutes

But at the same time, you can't replicate in game minutes no matter how "realistic" practices are. I prefer baptism by fire type approaches. I'm sure if Weaver really wanted to, he could easily have intervened to let Casey play him more, which he hasn't yet, which is fairly telling as well in terms of where Sekou's at

I said, I don't think them going 9-16 in their last 25 was all that unrealistic. You countered with trashing my prediction calling me a "Pistons worrier or whatever the ****" and then countered with the 3-22 prediction as ridiculous as that was.
