    Hopefully the Walter Herman experiment is over and Amir will get the chance. Flip Murry went from 3rd guard to the bench so who knows what can happen.

    I think flip has ruined the rhythm that the bench had earlier, by trying to coach too much. He needs to look at the games in which the bench played well and see what combinations he had on the floor.

    Yea, I think AA and Stuckey is going to be a bad combo until they get more experience and confidence (mostly confidence in them from Flip). Personally, I would like to see AA come in for Rip even earlier than he is now (about halfway through the 1st, same for the 3rd). That way Rip can get 6 solid minutes of rest each half, so he can go the entire 2nd and 4th quarters if need be, yet at most he would end up playing 36 minutes. Plus, AA's intangibles game just seems to work better with the starters where there is no pressure to create offense.

    No mention this AM in the FREEP or the DetNews about AJ. The articles on the Pistons were meaningless, dribble about them being tired.

    I sure hope they trade AJ to the Lakers within the next weeks. The Lakers have a coach that knows how to develop and use exceptional young talent

    I think you would have to package in Flip Murray to get Kobe. Joe D is not that stupid...

    Bill, who would you rather have if you could choose one?

    Will Blalock
    Sammy Mejia
    Kobe Bryant

    Be honest.

    Herrmann should play instead of Hayes anyway... many on this forum don't want to see JH zero defense... and he is also nearing his 40-30% career fg average.
    I wonder why?

    It looks like Flip gave him a free pass. Hayes is getting minutes regardless of his production. Although I have to admit, his defense has been better as of late, he's learning.

    JH former team didn't stress defence...It's a whole new world for JH, it seems.
