    I would like to see the rotation that started the season. I know this Solo game is an outlier, but he looks better.

    Usually I can tolerate Van Gundy's mindless chatter. Not this night.

    No, Nuntius. There will be no ****ing happy dancing blue faces in this thread. They haven't earned them.
    The rotation players didn't earn them. The 3rd string didn't do anything wrong and that's why I cheer for them.

    It still isn't as bad as advertised. The guard play was a bigger problem.

    What was the worst stretch of games the Pistons had in 04?
    Pre-sheed it was 6. Post sheed it was 2.

    In 1989 their longest streak was 2, in 1990 it was 3.

    The 3rd string is never in a position to do anything wrong. That's why they are the ****ing third string.

    So perplexing...best team in the league barely winning against the scrubs of the league, but manage a 5 game streak, lose a close one at home and proceed to get thumped 2 games in a row. Can't even compete. Just one month ago this team beat a good Portland team in a close game. Everyone was encouraged.
    The trades. Look right there. I don't know which move, but that's the likely culprit. Attitudes have been changed and chemistry that was once solid is not now.

    True but some of them should be in the rotation, imo.

    I agree, you have to one player in the starting line up who is just gonna try and play solid, and hit the open shot when it comes to him. Solo was that guy. Then maybe we can get back to the power post game that opens things up on the perimeter.

    Out of concern for PD Nation (me included), I hope it doesn't get to 6

    You know, it's really not a half bad idea. This is a young guy who is hungry to prove himself. He could give us energy that we so desperately lack.

    No way. Solo is much worse than Butler in every category. I don't think its close.

    Legend needs to come down from his perch and call a meeting, something. We all adore Frank, but the luster's wearing off, he's feeling like a mid-major coach that lit a fire under his team's *** and they got hot at the right time. Our offense is a ****ing joke.

    The irony is the sheed trade followed the 6 game losing streak, then they won one in the middle and lost their first two of the sheed era.

    Then they won 20 of their next 23 games.

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

    Well I would take Butler too.

    It's PG's back. I'm telling you, ever since Utah he hasn't been the same. If he isn't GOING, we don't go. Period.
