    How is this bad news? The Pistons should bring him in to tutor Brandon Knight. Just keep him away from the bench and allow him NO SAY in personnel moves.

    Wow, I can’t believe the Hawks are favored by 8.5 points after how the Pistons have been playing lately. 4 points would seem about right.

    ok…monroe has been dogging it on defense.  
    the hawks announcers were skewering monroe for lazy defense and shortly after that, frank took monroe out.
    definitely warranted, but it would be good to put him back in and let him redeem himself.
    it would also be nice if detroit had another big man option other than big ben.
    like say a certain ex-floridian with the initials, VM…

    I seriously hope karma gets us a top 5 draft choice and in turn delivers us a shot blocking starter. So as i get down on one knee i say ‘please lord we have not tanked this season unlike other teams have so if you happen to read this then remember exactly what Cleveland, New Orleans, Golden State and Washington have been doing and make the balls drop in our favour’.

    wilkins actualy earned his pay today.  he played very good defense on joe johnson.
    tay, on the other hand, has had a horrible game and has helped to kill the team.

      I guess Tayshaun’s the only person to get the memo that losing games results in a higher draft pick.

    curious rotation all around…the announcers mentioned that also.
    at least, they had a chance to win.
    this game is an example of a reality: if a team is smart and patient and attacks the piston’s interior, they can slice and dice detroit’s defense.  
    where is that shotblocker?!!!

      I believe that he was playing college ball a few weeks ago.

    There’s a few shot blockers in the Draft , hopefully we get one who can play help defense and score around 15 pts a game. Whoever that is along with Macklin, and Greg we should be ok next year. I hope Knight took notes on Teague tonight they play a similar game. Knights a better scorer , Teague just have a big scoring night.
