If that's the case, we should be able to get a solid look at his per 22.4 stats.
I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of per 15.8 stats Ben Wallace will put up this year.
When you really think about, why not just devote this season to showcasing players for trades? If we know that we want to get rid of Rip, then let's gear the offense up to make him look like an all-star. Heck, if the coach whispers the plan to Ben Gordon, BG will look like Jason Kidd for the next few months with all his feeds to Rip. If it's Maxiell that we want to dump, then let's have McCoskey write some pieces about how he's a dominator in practice and then move him into the starting lineup for a while. It really doesn't work to chastise and then bench the guys that you want to later trade. Maybe if you are a contender it makes sense, but if you are entering a teal phase, then you gotta be craftier than that.
only problem with your idea.... nobody would take McCoskey serious... and I think he's been sent to cover the wings and we have a chance at a real reporter this year?
Maybe he got sent to the Wings because he was too harsh on the Pistons org. I seem to remember a somewhat critical article later in the season from McCoskey.
He has not been the same since his contract. Hate to say it but it's looking like that's what he may have been hustling for before.
