    Someone needs to check and see what the alltime season low FG percentage for a team is....cause I'm starting to think whatever it is Detroit will be able to give it a good run for its money...

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    They will get A TON of Kobe assists, though.

    All that chucking and all that rebounding ability.

    Drummond's per 36 rebounding numbers will be filthy.

    Oh really?

    Brandon Jennings - 40%
    Will Bynum 47%
    Josh Smith 47%
    Greg Monroe 49%
    Andre Drummond 61%

    a lot of people really overestimate how much of a "chucker" Josh Smith is.

    Someone also needs to check what the record is for most illegal defense technicals called on opposing teams

    Smith might have his moments of efficiency but Brandon Jennings at this rate will never experience it.

    Pistons are a legit starting 2G away from being title contenders if Drummond becomes dominant starting this season.

    They were already a playoff team in my mind. Not sure on this move need a trial period to figure out if it will be good. Billups might be able to help Jenning but he will always be erratic. Personally I would of held on to Knight and get Jennings if they wanted Jennings. I like Knight off the ball. It was clear the Bucks didn't want BJ. That locker room will be a nightmare come rough stretches. I am surprised BJ didn't take the QO and try to get a deal next year. He seems like the type who believes in himself.

    Jennings was more efficient than Smith this year. Unlike Smith, he makes his free throws and he takes a bunch of 3s (lower FG% but you get 3 points when you make it).

    I think the Pistons clearly get better short term, and Jennings isn't a dumb player, if someone gets through to him and puts him into a good system, and puts legit scoring options around him, who knows, he might chuck less.

    It's a shame that they couldn't keep Knight though.

    hmmm...lets think about that...the dude simply cannot shoot...period...but he absolutely loves to try....over and over and over...and everyone knows its just a matter of time before he eventually starts jacking it up from the outside....frustrate him and keep him from scoring down low and youre good to go...cause once he goes outside hes finished...hes very good around the basket...but who on that Pistons team is gonna keep every team in the league from packing the paint with 5 guys????????

    Pump the breaks there, sugar. Let's see them make the playoffs before we call them potential title contenders. Plus Drummond becoming "dominant" is a huge, huge if.

    woa.. dumars really suck except drafting.

    at the begining of last season, we argued here with couple of guys and kstat about knight. I told them knight at pg is not gona work at all. so i m not a big fan of him. BUT
    as seen later, he is good charachter, also accepted to move sg, do his job defend and spotting up on 3pt line. with good coach he might turn into great role player.

    in my opinion things were going well. they just have to give playing time to drummond and other young guys and suck 1 more year. and maybe after next draft go after free agents. but signing j.smith and jennings. wow. ok i get it, with the situation of detroit and all; owners pushing for win now mode OK. but at least do better job for **** sake.

    If you mean that he's terrible at it, then it's not true, he shot .375 from 3 this year, and it's not a small sample size either.

    His much bigger problem is finishing inside the paint.

    Which actually gives some hope that Jennings will find his niche in Detroit, since they have so many better weapons inside the paint.

    Noone wants the 8th spot in the East...you have the top 5-Indy, Chicago, Brooklyn, Miami and NY...then Washington and Cleveland look good for two spots...but after that...its a crapshoot noone apparently wants to go after...they all want lottery...maybe Detroit sneaks in there...who knows...I do know one thing...whoever it is will likely only be playing 4 playoff games...

    I didn't mean he was terrible at it I'm just pointing out it's only when he makes it. He's more inclined to shoot a long 2 pointer than he is a 3 with the way he plays.

    I don't think it's THAT grim. For example, Atlanta basically replaced Smith with Millsap, Zaza with Ayon, and they get Lou Williams back. John Jenkins should be improved, too. Are they much worse than last year? I think they are probably around the same, depending on health. And they weren't swept.

    I think Hawks, Cavs, Wizards, Pistons could all cause some headaches as lower seeds, if they click and stay healthy. Especially the Cavs, but they have the most IFs too.

    My guess is that, barring injuries of course, those are the most likely 8 playoff teams in the East. Miami, Indiana, Chicago, Brooklyn, New York are locks. Love the way the Wizards played at the end of the year, the Cavs are going for the playoffs, and Detroit is clearly trying to sneak in there as well. Hawks, Bucks in the hunt too.
