Bballjay is right as it pertains to our draft pick. It was handled poorly from beginning to end. We fumbled selecting Darko in the first place (sorry I still think there are at least 8 people in that draft better than the Serbian), we fumbled the development of Darko when we decided to bring in Mr. Motivation problem and didn't commit to playing him when there was opportunity, and we fumbled trading him too early and for nowhere close to the value expected from a #2 pick and a serviceable point guard. Darko was an overrated pick (He is more like a low first rounder, based on what I've seen) and our ability to develop him was extremely overrated as well. Ben running out of energy? Unlikely. Everyone already knows how I feel about bballjay's double standard toward "quitting". Ben's made a career based on hard work, while bballjay's made a career defending Darko's lack of it. I won't let Ben's one bad moment of judgement define his career as a Piston. That would truely be ridiculous. To blame Ben for the Miami loss is equally as ridiculous. Our offense was predictable and our TEAM defense was horrendous. It wasn't just Ben. Ben just wasn't able to bail the entire team out this time around. Today I watched Gilbert Arenas and Jamison combine for 20% shooting in Washington. Funny, the coach didn't take them out the game. I liking that to Ben. If you are down in an elimination game and you need to get stops to force another game, you allow your defensive star the opportunity to come up big for the team despite his past issues in the series. Ben wasn't given that luxury simply because Flip thought the way to beating Miami was a more efficient offense. He was wrong and bbaljay is wrong for eating Flip's bologna. Flip gave up on his DPOY when Ben and his team needed him the most.
