Re: Detroit Pistons: Best team on paper!

Every game I try to sit down and watch and I just can't do it. After watching the 100th consecutive forced jump shot I get disgusted and change the channel.



This team is depressing.

Re: Detroit Pistons: Best team on paper!

Not sure I understand that logic at all...would you rather them finish the year 30-36, get the 8 seed and get swept and have a ****ty draft pick and zero future?

Atleast this way there is light at the end of the tunnel. That light is Anthony ****ing Davis.

Re: Detroit Pistons: Best team on paper!

Finish with the worst overall record, lockup that top 4 pick, then next year we likely finish in the 6th-10th worst record range and land another top 10 pick and then we're back in business.

A nice young up and coming team is something we haven't had in forever, the 2000's Pistons weren't really "young" or considered up and coming. We had guys that weren't projected to be that great come pretty damn close to their ceiling.

I totally understand what you're saying. Still hard to swallow watching a team you've followed for years suck this incredibly bad.



On another note they are now the 17th oldest team in the NBA, adjusted for minutes played. Which is not bad for a historically older team.

Re: Detroit Pistons: Best team on paper!

I know these are dark times, but it's still fun to watch Monroe and Knight. The score doesn't really matter except for the fact that we really are better off if we lose. C&C has the right idea imo. Anyways, if anybody wants to be cheered up about the Pistons I would recommend reading the hands down best article ever written on the Pistons. (there's a good chance I've already posted that article itt, but whatever, I read it at least once a year and always get chills)

Re: Detroit Pistons: Best team on paper!

I agree, but 15-51 prolly gets us the 3rd shot in the lottery, so we'd be picking 6th at worst, but 1st much much more likely than 5th or 6th.

Re: Detroit Pistons: Best team on paper!

Anthony Davis would truely be the perfect Detroit Piston. Starting opposite of Monroe he's everything on defense that Monroe isn't. A great shot blocker with great athleticism.

A core of Davis/Monroe/Jonas/Knight + 2013 lottery pick is one that can turn into a championship team. Gotta get Davis though.

Up 11 on Portland at half. Better get their **** together in the 2nd half. Maybe play Tayshaun at the point for the entire half or something.

yeah drafting the 5-10th best player in a draft class instead of the best is a clear winning strategy

Odds we are top 5 are really good. 6-10 unlikely to impossible.

Let's just hope that Stuckey doesn't channel his inner Derrick Rose very often.
