    I know the season hasn't started yet but I can't help but wonder about players that can help the pistons. Who do you guys have in mind if we end up with the #8 pick?

    Personally, I like Kyle Anderson. He's a smooth player and he's a very smart basketball player and he can finish with either left or right hand. Although, He's not that athletic and he doesn't have much quickness or explosion. Overall, he reminds me of Brandon Roy or Paul Pierce.

    Here's a video of him:




    Who else is out there that can help the Pistons, in your mind?

    He's not that athletic and he doesn't have much quickness or explosion. He hasn't played one game of college basketball yet. He probably won't even enter the draft next year. Why would you want to use a #8 pick on him? Have you ever seen him play? Just curious why you suggested this guy.

    I'd spend a 2nd rounder on him just for the name. Imagine Mike Breen: "Kabongo for the three... KABANG!!!"

    I've been way into 2016 draft analysis lately - haven't had any time to spare.

    Tay is probably only going to play another 10-12 years for the Pistons. They'll have to restock that position eventually.

    You guys are selling him short. He probably has until 65 before arthritis kicks in and he can't palm the ball at the top of the key for 20 seconds.

    When Tay's all done, he'll be the all-time leader in the all-important Time of Possession category.

    His pace of play is really going to slow down those last few years.

    Walter Sharpe used to fall asleep every time Tay got the ball.
    Prince's game is like kryptonite to a narcoleptic.

    Tay made Larry Brown fall asleep a few times.

    Heck, I have seen Hooper pull out a book and start reading when Tay has the ball.

    Icebergs watch Tay play for entertainment. They enjoy the pace.
