The Pistons are at the 8th ping pong slot--none of the teams around them won any games the last 5 or 6 except where New Orleans played Sacramento--so one of them had to win. Gores talks about accountability. Well, who is accountable for falling three draft places in the last week? Anyway, despite everything, the year was good because of Drummond--it would have been a disaster otherwise. And while Monroe did not take a full step forward, he did progress. He is showing some signs. Knight has many box score lines that are scary--he has a ways to go. Everyone now looks to the pick...I sure wish the Pistons were a few spots higher. Then, to the cap space. Please no more marginal players just to spend money... This young group will win but they do need some help from veteran play. They got precious little help from the current group of veterans.
