Changes to the menu.

In a previous FanPost, I explained what I thought would be the best rotation for the Pistons current roster. After watching the Chicago game, I believe changes to the menu are needed. The Pistons...

So......about those playoffs.

Or, as MFMHM would say, POs. Anyways, let's look at the possibilities realistically. In my personal opinion, the Pistons have a very good chance at making the playoffs. And I don't think they...

Projected standings: Best/worst case-scenarios

Now, I love the Pistons as much as anyone, but this is too much for me. I'm bored, looking around ESPN.com and NBA.com to see if there's anything on there about the game in London, or interesting...

Would having two coaches work?

However, even though I don't think Frank deserves to get fired unless we finish worse than last year and Drummond isn't starting by the end of the year (even if it's only 20 minutes a game,...

2. Who's the rookie of the year of the first trimester? Levy: Drummond. Although he's still convincing his coach he deserves 20-plus minutes a game, Drummond has been a revelation. He's answered every question about motor and intensity, while solidifying every assertion of his unique size and athleticism. Lillard is off to a great start as well, but Drummond is clearly headed somewhere special. Strauss: Drummond. Look, I'm under no illusions. I get that Lillard, Oakland's version of Chauncey Billups, will take this award. But Drummond's higher PER gives me an excuse to choose someone who's made more astounding plays this season. Drummond might not always know what he's doing, but he'll crush laws of physics at least once a game, all the while looking like a combination of young Amar'e and young Dwight.

Second 8: 2011-12 (1-7) vs. 2012-13 (5-3)

Continuing on from my first installment of this series, I want to compare the second set of 8 games from last year to this year. Last year, after the 2-6 start the Pistons only won 1 of the next 8...

What stat (to this point) would be most important to you in determining the Pistons' roster?

Please know that I acknowledge there is more to setting up a roster than just stats. This is even more true if only looking at one stat as compared to a collection of stats. We've talked much...

How should the rest of this season play out?

First 8: 2011-12 (2-6) vs. 2012-13 (0-8)

Just from the title it automatically looks like 2012-13 is worse than 2011-12 was after the first 8 games. But is it? Since I don't have time, nor the capability, to watch all 8 games from both...

Game Takeaways: 10/31 vs. Houston Rockets (L, 105-96)

Ok, so the first game of the 2012-13 season is in the books for the Detroit Pistons. Sadly, it ended up being a loss. However, I wanted to try and start a series, something I hope to do the day...

Core Four on the Floor – The four players who comprise the core of the 2012-13 Pistons are Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight, Tayshaun Prince and Rodney Stuckey. If it’s a close game and none are afflicted with injury or foul trouble, they’re going to be in the game. The identity of the fifth player could vary from game to game, based on performance and matchups. They could go small with Prince at power forward. They could go big with Andre Drummond at center and Greg Monroe at power forward. They might opt for a shooter and use Charlie Villanueva or Austin Daye – or perhaps one of the rookies, Kim English or Khris Middleton.

Ready or Not

Is it really that bad?

Yes, yes it is. WOW has, through 10/24, calculated who's the teams' best players are. Andre Drummond leads the list for the Pistons. Look who the last two are for the Pistons..............AND THE LEAGUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Even Kevin Hart knows what's up!!!!

Yes, if she were to be a coach (especially of the Pistons), it might be a little more difficult for me to pay attention to the game. ;)

I can see in him a leader," Maggette expounded. "He’s the point guard. He’s the leader of our team. He’s the one who’s going to be having the ball in his hands and making the calls. He can do that. He has the ability to be the leader of this team. I call him the ‘franchise player.’ He probably doesn’t like it, but that’s what I consider him as. This is a guy who can set the tempo for everybody. If you watch this camp, the way he’s played – aggressive on both ends of the floor – that’s what a leader does. I’m going to keep calling him a leader.
