is it just me or is Joe Dumars catching up to matt Millen in the poor decession process? After early success Dumars has struggled. Look at his drafts, mateen cleves, Rodney White, Tayshun prince, Darko millick, Jason Maxiel. I dont even know who they drafted this past offseason. a 21 year old 7 foot serbian center would have looked good right now with ben wallace gone. besides wallace he also let Memo okur go and traded corrlis williamson for derrick coleman who was cut by the way and a good chance injured when we got him.
The pistons have gone through 3 head coachs in 4+ seasons. We had an up and commer in Rick carslile, we dumped him for the 2 year reign of larry brown and now we have FLip. Flip was so bad in Minny kevin Garnett lead a mutiny and kevin mchale fired him.
The pistons no longer play defense and can not score. i thought when we lost ben we would be ok because we would score more. this is not the case. we went from the best team in the league record wise last year to struggling around the .500 mark this year and we only lost one player. I think Flip will not make it through the season . I think Joe will Hire his buddy and former teammate bill laimbeer as the next coach, to instill a toughness and add discipline. lambieer all though has never been an NBA coach has won two WNBA championships with the Detroit shock. His kids are older now and i believe he wants the pistons job badly.
Bill Lambieer would be a great choice for Pistons coach.
As for Joe's drafting: The NBA draft is far more of a crapshoot than the NFL draft. The reason for this is because the difference between college and Pro basketball is greater than the difference between the two in football. 3 point range just being 1 of those differences.
