Personally.. I think they should of pursued Mark Jackson if they wanted a rookie coach.

IF they wanted a veteran coach.. Why not Jeff Van Gundy???

Another former assistant coach? I don't think it will work out.

I think it was smart not to give avery johnson all the money he wanted... If he had wanted around 3 mil a year, then it would have been worth signing avery.

And the Pistons fail again.

Joe Dumars is no longer a great G.M.

I thought they said they wanted someone that was experienced. There are numerous experienced coaches that they could've had. I just don't understand it.

Well, he was the one making the calls for Clev anyway...

Bad move, JVG'd be great....

Joe Dumars iron fist rule of the pistons will be his downfall ...he's got quite the ego.

With all the offense on the team without a true leader or defensive specialist; they needed a veteran coach who is hard-nosed, defensive oriented yet knew how to run a refined offensive team.

or

A veteran coach who is a student of offensive basketball, yet has some commitment to defense.

Joe D. hasn't done much positive since drafting Stuckey.

It's simple, teams in this economy don't want to shell out milliions for a coach; $$ shud be better spent on players.

Agreed. This could turn out to be decent, but there is always a learning curve, especially in the playoffs.
