    I think Drummond just blocked more shots that possession than maxiell and Monroe have combined this season.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    drummond-monroe-prince-stuckey-knight would be a decent starting unit. when will we actually see it though?

    I'm guessing January. Frank is treating Drummond like a rookie pitcher in baseball.

    Just in time for the Pistons to play themselves out of a top 5 pick.

    At the rate they're playing, that won't be an issue if frank keeps this rotation another 2 months.

    Worked out well for Detroit the last three drafts with Monroe, Knight, and Drummond falling to picks 7, 8, and 9.

    It has been stated here multiple times already, but man, the Knicks are really a lot better with Melo at the 4 and Stoudemire out. What a waste for such a contract.
    Yay, I don't know if we're going back to the play-offs!

    If Brook Lopez stays healthy he is an all star this year, the guy is playing great.

    and what a waste of amnesty on Chauncey Billups. They could have D-Will or Nash right now, or making plans for CP3. I wonder who decided to exercise team option on Billups in the first place, Donnie or the owner.

    DC is balling 14 and 11 on 8 shots no TOs and playing solid D on Lillard. Rick is letting him play his game and it shows he and Mayo are pretty dynamic.

    What could have been...

    Darren Collison back to NO form in Dallas while OJ Mayo has two back to back 30+ point games.

    Should be Pacers, oh well.

    Dion Waiters is great. What a backcourt they've got in Cleveland.

    Honestly, if DC keeps playing this well, I'm going to consider lighting myself on fire. His D was infuriating, but the guy was always a lot of fun to watch with the bball IMO.

    I think it will keep up Rick is letting him play that was the only issue here he was on a leash. I loved trading for him but the way we used him was beyond bad and made me fell bad for him when you have one of the fastest players with the ball in the league you should probably let him play in a style where he can use those skills. I am happy for him he is a good player when used right. I never really hated him on defense yes he couldn't get thru a screen but the kid was tough and played with energy and pressured the ball better than most. I mean tonight for example he frustrated Lillard by guarding him 94 feet and it affected Lillard.

    That's odd. I always thought his D was the best part of his game while he was here. It doesen't really matter though, since DC is gone he will be missed. If he were here he would be hated. We have no semblance of an offence which makes every PG we have look bad. From TJ Ford to Hill, we do not have a system to use our PGs in any positive way. If we somehow grabbed Chris Paul tomorrow, next week everyone would be asking why he is no good anymore.

    I know the narrative was how good a defender Hill is vs how bad DC was, but I could never come to terms with that. "Always" was probably a poor choice of words, but during the playoffs I thought DC was our best PG defender by a pretty wide margin.
