The last two games, it's been rebounding issues and porous defense.

And this isn't a problem now, but it will be if not addressed soon. Max has been playing great...for Max. But he's a backup PF, not starter quality. Eventually we need to start Drummond at C and Monroe at PF. That will be the defensive presence we need, because our guards can't seem to stay in front of their man. Also, I'd love to see Jerebko starting over Prince. I love Prince, I do, but he's not starter quality anymore. He's lost more than a step and never been very offensive. I think he'd be best in limited minutes. Believe me, I could go on and on all day about what this team needs to do. I don't necessarily put everything on Frank though, but if he starts 0-16 like he did in NJ, he needs to get out. Smile

Very good, sir.

I definitely agree with your points on Maxiell, and that Drummond should start at C and Monroe at the 4, or vice-versa, doesn't matter in today's NBA much anymore who starts the 5. Definitely agree that Jerebko should start over Prince but I just don't see them demoting Prince like that. He's the last 1 standing from that 04 championship team and could've left but never did. It'd be really stand up of him if he'd tell coach to start Jerebko or someone else over him, but I doubt that'll happen. Jerebko hustles every play and can score, even has 3-pt range. He plays with a lot of heart, he should start. Monroe is your anchor, he's such a beast. I recall him having a triple double the other night, first since Billups did it in like 04 or something..

Stuckey had a phenomenal first few seasons for you guys, he was the real deal. But I'm not sure if it's injuries or what but he hasn't been the same. I think you guy's should've been done traded him while you could've gotten some value for him. I'm not sure what you could get for him now, but I really think you should part ways. Brandon Knight is the starting point. BTW, what's up with him? He's off to a slow start to the season, I mean his #s are ok but definitely thought they'd be better. He's on my fantasy team, hehe

What I think needs to be done with this season is let the vets play in hopes of getting trade value for them, even if it's a few picks. Maxiell, Villanueva, Daye, Maggette and Bynum will be off the books this year. That's 1/3 of the team. Knight (20), Monroe (21), Drummond (19), English (22?), Singler (23?), Prince (32), Middleton (22), Stuckey (26), Kravtsov (25) and Jerebko (24). "One of these just don't belong..." lol. If we could trade Prince even, next season we'll probably be the youngest team in the league and everyone of them can run.

As far as Knight, I think it's a multitude of things. If you notice, he's been less error prone but still needs to work on it. If you watch the games, he actually plays worse than what his number suggest. There was one game recently where he had like 5 AST, 2 TO, and like 13 PTS, but if you were to watch him, the assists were ugly, should have probably had 6 TO, and was only like 4/10. But he's only 20 and I'm not expecting him to be Chris Paul. We mainly need him to keep the TO down and be our perimeter threat. Stuckey is the slasher, we don't need two of them.

We have the pieces to make it to the playoffs, but I think there's something behind the scenes going on to try and trade a few people. I do fear what they'll do with the money in the offseason though. We should have somewhere in the neighborhood of 25M available. Last time that happened (gulp) we signed Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva.
Gentlemen, this is the hostage negotiator, let's stop hijacking my thread and start talking about how awesome my Davis auto is again, so that someone will trade me a Kyrie Irving auto for it. LOL

I thought the policy was to not negotiate with terrorists?????

lol. Sorry dude, just shows how much I love basketball, especially the Pistons. If I had an Irving AU, thought I don't like "da unibrow", I'd do it. Smile
Wish I had that problem

I've got a fever, and the only prescription is ... Kyrie Irving ... sorry, just had to reference the SNL skit.
lmao, love that skit

Yep, would love to have Ferrell, Sandler, etc., back on SNL
I've just got to say this...I think the Davis Hardwood is no longer available.
