Hero Ball: Will Bynum or Nate Robinson

In MFMP's fantasy land, the Pistons would attempt to go after Nate Robinson. At first, I jokingly stated that he is pretty much the same as Will Bynum. I then very briefly looked at stats to see...

Comparing Shot Charts (Updated 4/26/13)

The title image is the Pistons shot chart for the season via stats.nba.com. Sadly, as you can see, there's only one area where the Pistons shot above 40%, and that was in the paint. You can...

Deep Thoughts by XstreamINsanity: Assists

When I visited NBA.com today I saw that they had up the top 10 plays videos for everything. The season, each team, blocks, dunks, etc. Sadly, Brandon Knight was #1 for the season, blocks and C...

Check your cell phone, because you've missed a couple of calls! (updated 4/16)

Ok, I chose the title of this FanPost because it is 1) supposedly a good insult to a ref, 2) this post is related to fouls, and 3) there is some discrepancy in the data. I was rather bored today...

Move Stuckey and Villanueva now!!!

I'm not writing this post because of disgust with either of these players. I'm writing this post with concern for the Piston's long term success and what I fear next year could do. As we all...

Splitting Monroe into Halves

I stated at some point earlier this season that it seemed Monroe did better in the first half more often than he did better in the second half. And I think it was MFMP who respectfully told me I...

Investigating Q? Collapses

Which is best for determining consistency?

One of the first pieces I read when I signed onto DBB was a nice little piece by revken about Brandon Knight's consistency issues. A month or so ago, I started (didn't finish) writing a piece that...

How does Lawrence Frank's personality affect team?

DBB reader XstreamINsanity takes a wonder to coaching personalities and how they affect their teams. Would you say that the coach's personality is anywhere close to as important as the plays that...

Some of Andre's interview responses remind me of this

Andre's better than that, obviously, but it always seems that the first response he gives to almost any question about his play or the team is "Well you know we just work hard and play hard." I say this after watching the Rising Stars Practice video posted on Pistons.com today.

Did the Pistons make MJ who he was?

MJ was very skilled and a special player, but did the Pistons push him over the top?

Could the Pistons lead the league in rebounding?

My question to the DBB community is how much do you value rebounding? Do you think it's important (for exposure or other purposes) for the Pistons to be near the top in the league in such a stat?

Splitting Greg Monroe

DBBer XstreamINsanity takes a deep dive into Greg Monroe's stats this year.

Huh? Wuh? Explain.

WTF? Where did this info come from? I haven't heard anything of the sort. It's clear Frank has a level of trust in Calderon he hasn't with anyone manning the position before his arrival, and had rookie Andre Drummond not fractured his tailbone against the Lakers, he would've been inserted in the starting lineup against the Nets last Wednesday.
