It would be great if McGrady could be the player he was a few years ago.

Austin Daye had made his last 8 3 point attempts! :siren:

He's at 52% for the season!

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

This team is so dreadful to watch. I can't even explain it. Somewhere a huge mess was made. I haven't watched the NBA in a couple years (Gowings nailed it), but still support/follow the Stones. I still think Joe D is better then most at his job, but wow this mess is going to take a while to clean up. I swear we have 15 guards, and 10 small forwards on the team.

Rip/Prince gotta go. I don't care if its a horrible deal for us. True rebuilding isn't going to happen without them gone. Only good thing about Prince is his expiring contract.

Monroe seems like years away, Daye doesn't impress me, McGrady isn't going to solve anything, Charlie V is horrible on defense, and even Stuckey I have questions about.

I hope they tank, and get a top 5 pick. I would be willing to trade any player on this team besides Ben Gordon, and Jerebko.


I agree with everything here, especially the Rip/Prince part and Gordon/Jerebko being the only certain pieces to build around. I'm quickly starting to be less sold on Stuckey as his career progresses. If nothing else, he clearly isn't a point guard and we already have 120 shooting guards, so I'm not sure where that leaves Stuckey. Plus I'm sick of these Pistons for the past decade now running coaches out with their awful attitudes. Maybe it isn't the coaches after five of them now. I don't know if Kuester is the right guy, but I do know that this group of Pistons needs to shut up and play because it isn't 2004 anymore.

Monroe has looked solid to me lately and McGrady does too in spurts. Rip needs to go - all he does is take minutes away from Ben Gordon. The Pistons have to shoot well every game to win because they don't play defense, rebound, or produce anything in the paint. I'm hoping Dumars can pull something off for a big man or at least expiring contracts by the deadline. I want in the lottery, not a sweep to the Celtics.

I agree. Did you know that Joe D was faced with a trade offer from Danny Ainge in the summer of '09 that would have given us Rondo and Ray Allen for Rip, Prince and Stuckey, and he quickly turned it down? Fast forward to today, and Rondo is considered one of the best point guards in the league next to Nash, Paul and Williams. Meanwhile, Stuckey still hasn't figured out his position and is the biggest cancer in the locker room and Rip and Prince are just logjams in a loaded front court. For every questionable decision Joe D has made post-championship, and there's many, this has to be high on the list. It's sad that our best passer is a guy making like league minimum, plays about 10 minutes a game and has no legs at all. This team looks to be in horrible shape, with yet no buyer since Illitch backed out, and is going into further trouble if there is going to be a lockout.

I had heard about that proposed trade. s***, Boston would never do it but I would take that trade still for just Rondo alone. I agree with everything you said. This team is in shambles. Last night against the Warriors was yet another example. Prince and Kuester going at it (again) on the sideline during the game. I always thought Prince was very overrated, so his entire act this season is really annoying to me. Stop bitching about the coach Tayshaun and learn to take a jump shot that doesn't line drive its way to the basket. Joe D needs to use that expiring contract and get Prince out of here for something valuable. I like watching the bench play more than the starters. Give me Gordon, Villanueva, McGrady and Monroe over Stuckey, Rip, Prince and Big Ben any day. Big Ben has actually been fine, but let's play the hell out of Monroe and see what he's got.

I agree about Prince. I've always thought the same thing as well. He needs to go. I remember that Boston trade, and laughed Ainge actually even offered it. I don't blame Joe D on that one, because at the time I think everyone would have freaked out and called for Dumars head. Looking back now though wow that would have been nice.

A guy I think we could get for cheap is Sessions from Minnesota. He's very underrated if you ask me, and Minn has a log jam at PG. A real big one if Rubio ever comes over.

Well our wish could come true as we seem to be big players in helping Carmelo getting traded out of Denver by being the third team involved if New York can muster something. I'm not sure who else we'd get rid of, but Tayshaun will most likely be a piece in the deal since he has an expiring contract.

Yes, I remember people not wanting him to make the trade, but I was the opposite. They won the championship the year prior and he really came through for them after being called the weakest link of that team, and coming off that 08-09 season his averages were 11.9 pts, 8.2 assists and 5.3 rebounds, while coming around to being the steal threat that he's become today. Stuckey meanwhile was still learning the position after Dumars traded Billups that season, and the only thing Stuckey had in his favor was size and strength. He's a good 2, can attack the rim (perhaps too much) and has a decent shot. But he's not a pure PG like Rondo at the time, and still is. I was praying that trade went through as I believed Rondo was the perfect replacement for Billups.

If that trade did happen, then we could have either resigned Allen or let him go for cap space and built the team accordingly around Rondo, which if we let him go then we would have signed CV and Gordon, a young team and a championship calibre PG leading them. Kuester would also not have his hands full trying to train a PG since Rondo has the vision and smarts. I wonder how good we could have been? Defensively we'd still be weak, but our offense would probably be up there with the top teams me thinks.

I'd also like to add that I don't think Tay is really overrated, but I don't think he's the type of player to have an offense ran through, and doesn't have the leadership qualities like Billups and the Wallace's have. Him and Stuckey keep running their mouths and things they don't agree with the coach about, and the other veterans like Rip and Ben are just keeping their mouths shut along with the rookies and sophomores.

It's sad when you think about it too, this team has always had the attitude that it's their way and no one's going to tell them what to do because they've had this self-entitlement after winning the championship.

The attitude has to go. It will poison the younger guys, and then there will be bigger problems. It's good to have Ben around (I was against the signing at the time..have since changed my tune on that), but I'm sure he doesn't have the same voice in the locker room as he once had..

I absolutely hate this team. Look at yesterday's starting 5:

Stuckey: 6-15, 17 points. 1 assist, awesome.

Hamilton: 4-12, 12 points. WHY IS HE STILL A PISTON?!

Wallace: 2 points, 6 rebounds, sigh, waste of time.

Maxiell: 1-6, 2 points, 4 rebounds. Worst player in the NBA.

Prince: 2-7, 6 points. Absolute joke that he's still in this team.



Monroe 6 points, 8 rebounds, just start him for crying out loud, this year is already a mess, might as well get SOMETHING out of it.

Man this team is a complete and utter joke. I could handle losing but losing and still playing the same old washed up guys, why bother?

Agree. Start Monroe, Daye, Gordon, Charlie V, and Bynum. Might as well half those guys need experience anyways. It would also pave the way for a No. 1 pick.

Anyone else enjoying Miami's 9-8 start after they were supposed to go 82-0? :)
