Are the Detroit Pistons really this bad?

I don’t want to believe it, but I have to ask.

  • Are the Pistons just the type of team that loses by 17 (104-87) to the Knicks?
  • The type of team that shows no desperation?
  • The type of team that whines about playing time?
  • The type of team that gets out-rebounded (44-33) by the NBA’s third-worst rebounding team?
  • The type of team that lets David Lee go for 30 and 12?
  • The type of team that allows its opponent to make 51.3 percent of its shots.
  • The type of team that’s destined for the lottery?

I want to say no.

  • I want to point out Richard Hamilton (5-of-21) and Tayshaun Prince (two points in 25 minutes) are still getting acclimated.
  • I want to point out Will Bynum sat out.
  • I want to point out Charlie Villanueva (scoreless) is playing hurt.

But it’s getting tougher and tougher to defend this team. The Pistons are running out of excuses.

This season could get ugly quickly if they don’t turn it around soon.

    I don’t think the Pistons will ultimately be as bad as they were last night, but unfortunately, I think the Pistons are bad (and I’ve thought so since we signed Gordon and CV).
    Our ceiling, IMO, was 41-45 wins — and that’s if everyone stayed healthy, and our young guys showed improvement.
    Neither of those things have happened. Stuckey, in spite of scoring a lot of points, has regressed from last season. Everyone and their brother has been injured. And none of our young big guys (other than JJ) have stepped up. Wilcox and Max have been almost nonexistent. Kwame has been slightly better, but only slightly.
    We can’t defend inside, and we can’t rebound. Our guards, when healthy, can score from the perimeter, but we have nothing to speak of in terms of scoring inside.
    Put all that together, and you get a 30-35 win team, which is exactly what we are.

    The Pistons went south the second Dumars traded Billups, period.
