    I like Jon Barry, too, but he only played 2 years for the Pistons and he averaged 9.0 and 6.9 ppg those two seasons.

    Gotta add a sixth man to one of these teams.... yall got no love for Corliss Williamson???.....dude was there for 4 years including three when they won 50+ games as they progressed each year to the championship...even more valuable than Jon Barry.

    Should the list only include the seasons they played at the Palace, or just have to have played 1 game to include their whole Pistons career, pre-Palace? I would make an argument for McDyess over Mahorn. Played 5 full seasons here and accumulated around the same number of points as Salley (more than Mahorn) but with more rebounds than both Salley and Mahorn. Ok, no championship but was a key component for much of that successful era.

    I liked them both. I think they got along very well with each other.

    I recall Jon Barry joked once than most of Corliss Williamson points were because of his assists.:)

    A couple of teams with international players who played for Pistons:

    1st team:

    Calderon, Delfino, Herrmann, Okur, Rebraca. Sixth Man: Marjanovic.

    2nd team:

    Arroyo, Gordon, Datome, Ilyasova, Baynes. Sixth Man: Sanchez.

    What do you guys think? Has Detroit Pistons played ok so far on international market?

    The infamous Darko #2 pick will unfortunately usurp the value of all foreign players that we have had on the roster. :faint:

    I'd have to put Rodman over Sheed personally. In 1992, he averaged 10 points, 19 rebounds, 2.3 assists, a steal, and a block. He had a couple .600+ TS% years with us. And he guarded Michael Jordan half the time. Defensive player of the year twice, first team all-defense 7 times, got the rebounding title a record 7 straight years (as a forward!), and of course, is a hall of famer.

    And he could even shut down Shaq.

    Nice list Bill...thanks for putting Buddha ahead of Drummond.
    I'd put Rip ahead of Joe D. (personal preference)

    Personally...I see team 3 winning over team 1 about 57 percent of the time.

    Good rant. So many of these coaches become alcoholics.

    Do you have some examples? Should I interpret your posts literally?

    Fizdale was speaking out for all of the coaches that will get hosed in the post season. If there is a fine...the other coaches will secretly chip in to cover it.

    I like Rodman but I like Sheed better as a complete player.

    Besides that, Ben and Rodman upfront is not particularly a good combination.

    Just my opinion.

    Rodman looked better in a wedding dress.

    I liked McDyess a lot, but in 5 seasons, he never averaged more than 10 points per game, and like you said, no championships.

    Mahorn (1) and Salley (2) have championships. Perhaps McDyess is more deserving that Dantley, who helped Detroit get to the pinnacle before getting replaced by Aguirre.

    I'll use @TaS@TaS argument to put Rodman ahead of Sheed in my new list:

    1st team: Zeke, Joe D, Grant, Rodman, Ben

    2nd team: Billups, Rip, Tay, Sheed, Laimbeer

    3rd team: Vinnie, Stackhouse, Aguirre, Salley, Buddha

    4th team: Hunter, Houston, McDyess, Mahorn, Drummond

    Grant Hill didn't exactly win one either.
