Just head his interview on local radio:
- he made the point that it was their 6th game in 8 nights, on the road, and he was unable to run the offense, because nobody on his team had enough strength to really RUN. He also said the SA game the night before took a lot out of them physically. People were jogging all game instead of running hard.
-He made the admission that Indiana is the #1 team in the EAST, maybe the NBA, but he would LOVE to meet them in the playoffs.
-He said Ron Artest isnt overly concerning, but Jermaine Oneal is a big problem. He said JO is a legit MVP candidate.
Personally, I'd rather the Pistons kept the fatigue thing to themselves, but thats not saying I dont agree with him. There were a lot of instances where the starters just weren't playing with the effort that I'm used to seeing. That said, Its not Indiana's fault. I know Indiana was playing 4 in 5, but thats not as gruesome as 6 in 8, and they had the added bonus of being at home.
But hey, you can't say much about losing 3 games to 1 team. AT some point you have to look in the mirror and say you lost.
I realize nobody here wants to hear this, its just something to think about.
