    The problem is coach frank, mateen said it best after last nights game. This same question was asked he said frank takes to long to call time outs when teams go on runs & makes questionable subs at the wrong time. That's why we lose those games his sub patterings are terrible. I mean everytime we put drummond on the floor we ether comeback or go on a run ,If he was a good coach he would see that. He maid some poor decisions last nite too, I won't put all the blame on frank because our guards can't keep anybody out the paint. The solution is start Drummond he would be like a security blanket if we get beat off the dribble & for moose. I know max has been playing good but he is just to small, I would like to see maggette benched just like frank did jj because maggette is actually playing worse. I wasn't expecting too much more but we are only 5 games from being 8th in the east, we've had that toughest schedule & played the most games in the nba. Remember okc they were bad for like 3yrs then just shot up to the top tier of teams real fast.

    I found this interesting-

    @vgoodwill

    The #Pistons have more blown double-digit leads (8) than wins (7)
    The #Pistons have 17 losses. 8 of them they've had double-digit leads in. You win 4 of those, you're pushing .500

    OKC shot up real fast because they had some really good drafts and now have Westbrook and Durant so thats nothing like us.

    They went 20-62 durants rookie year & 29-53 the next year with westbrook. Then the 3rd yr they shot up to 50-32 its a process but good drafting is def key & we had 3 good drafts knight moose drummond & Singler was a nice surprise. We haven't got to look at English or middleton but I def think they will both be nice, hopefully slava too.

    We just need better players all around. Watched alot of games tonight. I think we help develop Knight faster by atleast putting some damn shooters around the poor kid.

    I havent been Knights biggest fan but after watching games tonight good PG's have a shooter around them. Watching the Spurs (i think Knight will be more of a Parker type pg) he has Green, Neal, Bonner, Mills. I think adding shooters around Knight will cover the fact he isnt a "playmaker."

    I would have hoped for possibly flirting with .500.


    We finished .500 over the last 40 or so games last season and I think everyone agrees that Drummond has exceeded our expectations.

    On a side note, some folks are upset with trading the pick/BG for Maggette. But in longer term veiw, we get 10M next summer and if it were a lottery pick, I think going into this season it would have been a 10-14 pick at best, since we thought that's where our record would place us.

    That said, we'd be looking at Monroe/Drummond/Knight. Do we really want to have another rookie-ish in the lineup? It'd be nice to be able to trade it, yes. That's a whole another discussion.

    I actually think the Bobcats game in Jan will mark the turnaround of the season...

    Pistons have had a tough stretch of the season, Pistons first 4 day break will come between dec 22 and 26, and they have only had 2 breaks of 3 days. Although we are young, that still is a lot of games with little rest. However, the Pistons schedule after the game against the Wizards on the 22 opens ups and provides for a lot more rest and practice.

    Although I do not expect much this season, if we go on a nice +.500 stretch in or after January I would not be incredibly surprised.

    What, were you expecting someone to quote you?

    I think its time for you to change blood pressure prescription cause obv its not working. I know they didn't really have an expiration date back in the 1500s, but that stuff usually looses its effect after 3 years.

    I mean, words? Words on a screen effect your daily living that much?

    And to answer your senseless question jack in the box ... yes we all expected this team to do good. Esp after all the big talk from the coach, the owner, the crap players (stuckey/knight) and all those friggin hyped up commercials they presented us.

    Yes we expected big things, and if you guys say no, then your lying to yourself. Its very easy to say no after another disappointing season
