    great recap, armygirl. thanks for that.
    I'm shocked at how deep we are. I didn't think Bynum would have any game this early in the (pre) season. I have never seen him play, and am anxious to see how he shakes out. It is really looking like we are stacked at the guard position, just in case we have to make trade later in the season.

    Armygirl - Almost feel as though I was there after reading that.

    I think our frontcourt is going to be a project in the making here. We still have Sheed and Dyess to stabalize things but as we saw the past couple of years they are not enough. Hopefully the young guys, especially Amir can step up this year and contribute in the playoffs.

    One thing that is very encouraging is the Pistons are getting back into that playoff type style of defense. Maybe our plays will not melt down this time in the playoffs when we face the better teams.

    washington had 53 points with 4 mins to go...i'd say our defense has been looking awesome so far in the preseason.

    I have no problem with that, it gives the team something to work towards which may subside prior complacency issues. Leon Powe, Kendrick Perkins and Rajon Rondo were a work in progress for most of the season, finally towards the end they hit their stride. As long as MC sticks to the goals, we're going to be fine.

    Hey Cloud, What up?

    In real time last night, JMax looked slower than molassas on stickems.

    He was good, gave it 100%, I absolutely love JMax, his hustle and erthing else, but I do hope that Curry does not plan on playing him against Pierce, Kobe, Lebron, et al. What a way to hustle last night for his limited minutes, don't like the weight loss though.

    I got a feeling that Curry was doing more experimenting than acutal game planning for the regular season with Max playing SF

    Especially at Small Forward.

    If we play great defense, we won't have to make a lot of plays at the end of games.

    Hold up there Hog, I wouldn`t say quite yet our defense is back. Especially against the Wiz in preseason, the effort is there though...........
