    Tobias was arguably our best player this season. He led the team in Win Shares. Why get rid of your best player?

    He's our only desirable asset.

    Marcus Morris has a real nice contract. You could package him with someone you wanted to dump.

    And maybe even get back some of those coveted second round picks.

    You think I am kidding, and maybe I am a little, but with all of the expansion with the D-League, it's totally not a bad idea to have a few guys stashed in Grand Rapids playing for cheap.

    What about Zach Collins from Gonzaga? IS he legit? Or he is hyped from the NCAA tournament?

    This team looks even worse than the one we have now. 34 wins.

    I don't think you draft Bridges and bury him on the depth chart. If you draft Bridges, you play him.

    That team looks good vs. the '02 Pistons that won 50 games.

    Just like how we played Ellenson all this year, right?

    I don't really know what rabbit you guys are expecting SVG will pull out of a hat to get the roster suddenly looking like a title contender this offseason. The entire reason for my idea was to replace KCP for when he walks. Yes, I know Tobias is pretty good, but if you'd all bother to check, so is Fournier. The magic don't need him now that they have Terrence Ross at SG, and for SF, they'd prefer Aaron Gordon start there. likely the only other package

    You keep Tobias around, you basically have to trade Morris, otherwise Ellenson doesn't receive playing time, unless we all prefer Stanley Johnson start at SG and Tobias once again coming off the bench.

    Ross isn't a starter.

    Everyone is looking at roster changes to get improvement. How about we just play better to get improvement? You know, like most teams in the league.

    That o2 team had 2 crucial defensive pieces. Ben Wallace and Cliff Robinson. Our current front court prefers to wave at guys as they slam dunk over them.

    You forgot @Lee356@Lee356's favorite player Michael Curry and @Ernie the Slow Adult@Ernie the Slow Adult's favorite player Brian Cardinal.

    Hard to lose many games when you have the fastest hands in league history (Rodney White) on your roster.

    Ratko was very underrated.

    I am calling it now: The Pistons won't make the playoffs within the next two years.

    That's what this season was supposed to be about. SVG harped on about it all season, but it just didn't happen.

    It is scary to realise that it has almost been 13 years since the 2004 championship. Which by next season will be the same length of time between the Bad Boys last ship and 04.

    1990 - 2004 - 14 seasons
    2004 - 2017 - 13 seasons

    Very scary.
