    How many young pieces are still playing at a high level ? That came thru Detroit.
    The point is, we have been testing players for the past 7 yr with only 4-5 yr --- test players.
    Why didn't GS give up on Steven Curry ? We beat him back in his first and second years.

    Imho, this would be the worst possible pick for the Pistons.

    I don't think he has the length or athleticism that would put him anywhere near Prince, especially on the defensive end.

    I've said this before and I'll say it again: best case scenario for this guy is Tobias Harris.

    The Pistons already have enough weak, mid-range obsessive, tweener forwards.

    Rather, the Pistons need defense and 3P shooting and this guy provides very little of either.

    A pick-by-pick mock draft is happening on ESPN2 in about 10 minutes.

    I'd bet money the Lakers go with Lonzo Ball.

    All of the mock drafts are having the Pistons take the SG from Duke Luke Kennard.

    PG is going to the Lakers regardless. He wants to play for an LA team and has made it heard. He has said he will only be a rental so nobody trades for him and ruins their team in the process. Smart guy.

    There will be a lot of pressure on Kennard if he gets drafted. I've seen some talk on here about him being the next Singler.

    Can Kennard hit his first shot? That was a big concern for Van Gundy last season and why he thought we struggled.

    I listened to the latest Bill Simmons pod on the way to work and they where joking about assembling the SVG dream team - 1 center surrounded by 4 players who can't shoot. Everyone laughed. He's relieved the Dumars with two phones picture as the new running joke among NBA writers.

    Wow, really, they're fodder for podcasters now?

    I am so un-exicited for this draft. I'd trust that dog to make the pick over Van Gundy and Blower.

    I'm old enough to remember when you were excited about Ellenson.

    I'm not excited for him to start playing his 2nd season. I'm also not excited for them to draft another guy that they'll feel is heresy to play.

    To bad none of those GM's with the 5-8 picks is foolish enough to trade their pick for an established veteran like Reggie Jackson...:biggrin::lol:

    RJ is still the best PG on our roster.

    The Grand Rapids fans are really pumped up for the draft.
