    Probably not enough.

    I think the upside of Detroit is it's atmosphere and character of the franchise. Guys either fit, or they don't. There is a comfort zone here, if you play along. KB could finish his career in Detroit, but that's up to him.

    It seems to me that having a big man coach like Bynum has in LA would be beneficial sometimes. A personal mentor that can tell a guy like Kwame to show a mean streak and pump him up a bit. A middle man between the coach who can communicate MC's complaints to the player in the most beneficial way.

    A guy like Mahorn is what I'm thinking.

    I believe Cowens is the big man coach.

    I just realized this game is at 10:00

    Roll call, who is staying up with me to watch this?

    ...actually, it looks like he just let yet another pass slip through his small "carney-like" hands.

    Holy cow, 47 posts on this game and it still 3 hours before the game. The enthusiasm for the Piston team seems to be picking up.

    I blame the dvr!

    This is the kind of loss you can take. Pistons played hard, they just didnt have it from their starting guards tonight.

    I'm posting this before the game is over b/c the outcome has nothing to do with it, but if this game didn't convince people that Rip needs to start i don't know what will.

    When AI plays next to Stuck he's relegated to be a jump shooter (and an ineffective one at that). Those passes that Stuck give to AI are money shots for Rip. When AI was out on the floor with AA, he was much better b/c he handled the ball and got to penetrate and started to do what he does best. This was AI's 3rd straight ? 5-15 ish shooting night.

    And Stuck started deffering way too much. He's been a very clutch player. I don't know why he stopped attacking.

    I'm not even going to comment on that last play except to say that Prince was on fire.
