Detroit Pistons

2 October 2014

Detroit Pistons had everything that could make a great team, and yet 2013-14 season turned out to be a mess. Detroit made great new acquisitions of Brandon Jennings for point guard and Josh Smith for forward, but by the end of the season, they did not matter much. Even the Eastern Conference, which is weaker, did not make any difference, and the Pistons were not seen anywhere near the playoffs, finishing the season with a dismal 29-53.

Can the Detroit Pistons ever get back to the way they use to be? My anserw is yes! How can they do that, it starts with the guards. With the championship team the Pistons had three guards that

LeBron James makes his only trip to Madison Square Garden tonight. 

For the past two seasons there has been plenty of talk about LeBron bolting his hometown of Cleveland for the bright lights of New York City.

The Pistons could be in some serious trouble.  I dont' even see them making the playoffs in 2010.  I think they'll probably be in the lottery.  They're not re-signing Iverson.  The

If Kobe Bryant expects to win a championship this June, he needs to trust his teammates more. If he doesn't, the Lakers will not only struggle to win the Finals, they may have trouble even getting there. Last night's loss to the Houston Rockets, putting them down 1-0 in the series, is to me, enough cause for concern. Phil Jackson needs to sit down Kobe and tell him the same thing he told Jordan: trust your teammates more.

November 4, 2008.  Remember that day?  I do.  I was stepping out of the shower getting ready for work when I noticed I had a new text message.  "Pistons traded for Iverson!".  The first thoughts that went through my head was that Mr. Big Shot was probably gone.  Sure enough, I was right.  The Pistons went ahead and traded their on & off the court leader for a player who has no clue what team basketball means (this would clearly prove to be true later in the season...).  Well, I thought, this team is full of experienced veterans so we should be alright.

"There's no analysis here...what happened?!" - ESPN's Steve Levy, 4/27/09

The New Orleans hornets suffered the all-time-tying worst playoff loss in NBA history yesterday, getting stomped on 121-63 by the Denver Nuggets. Don't wet yourselves, Nuggets fans. The Hornets just played THAT BAD. Here are the Top 10 Reasons why they shouldn't bother showing up for Game 5:

I'm a Kobe fan. Huge Kobe fan. He's practically my generation's MJ. Nothing against MJ, I just never saw him play much. I went to the United Center once, when I was seven, and all I remember is Scottie Pippen's crew-cut and cotton candy. Also, I'm from D.C., so the fact that MJ ruined the entire development and chemistry of an up-and-coming Washington Wizards team, just so he could milk a little more limelight, doesn't really sit well.

Before this season began, I was once again hyped for the Pistons to once again make a deep playoff run. With basically everyone returning and Jason Maxiell finally getting his time, there was no way t

I can hardly watch anymore its just ugly watching the Pistons this season. How do you go up by so much to lose it in the last four minutes. That game was depressing. I have never liked Allen Iverson I

Let's talk about something positive...the Pistons!!!

The questions about Detroit Pistons basketball this season are as numerous as the pumpkin orange construction cones on I-75. With a new head coach, how will the season go? What is Michael Curry going to do with this squad; slight changes or a complete overhaul of the starting lineup once the regular seasons starts?  Will Rasheed Wallace spend most of his court time posting up or as a perimeter player? Are the Pistons going to look old, with their 30-something starting lineup, or is the youthful energy of Jason Maxiell and Amir Johnson going to serve as a shot of Red Bull for the whole squad? Only time will tell.  But, if the preseason is any indication, Curry is looking for a concoction of youthful exuberance and veteran leadership to lead the Pistons to a strong regular season record and a desirable seed in the NBA playoffs.

Over the past 6 years, Tayshaun Prince has quietly averaged 14 pts and 5 boards a game, while shooting a solid 45% from the field. But it's the little things Prince does on the court that don't show up on the stat sheet that got him selected to the Team USA roster bound for Beijing, a team desparate to regain Olympic glory after an unthinkable second place finish in Athens in 2004, led by none other than Prince's former coach Larry Brown.

Of his three seasons in Detroit, I think Flip Saunders did his best coaching job this year. He developed the young players and showed he wasn't afraid to let them battle through mistakes. And as a result, he kept the starters' minutes down. I thought he pushed all the right buttons in the Orlando Magic series, too.
