    Pistons win their division?
    Oh yeah - 80% chance

    Chauncey makes the allstar team?
    Sorry CB - 33% chance

    Carlos stays on the team all year and performs well?
    Oh lord, I don't know. Hope so. 50/50
    P.S. Odds are equally good that CD gets abducted by aliens and plays in the trans Neptunian no I'm not a planet league.

    Lindsey is the backup PG for most of the year?
    Yes - 70% chance he doesn't get hurt. Lindsey is first off the bench at the position, but others fill in some.

    Rasheed scores 16+ points p/game?
    Yes indeed - 90% chance - Sheed comes out with something to prove.

    Chicago passes the Pistons in the standings?
    Not without one more player - 20% chance

    Brahma gets 7+ minutes p/game?
    Likely - 70% chance at the beginning of the season, drops off rapidly if he continues not to recognize that rebounds are important.

    Nazr scores more than Ben?
    Tough one. Yes - 60% chance

    Pistons win more than 54 games this year?
    Easily within the realm of possible - 70% chance (as long as 55 counts)

    Pistons win their division? Sell. They won't place the same importance on it this year.
    Chauncey makes the allstar team? Sell. With a worse record, he won't get the props.
    Carlos stays on the team all year and performs well? Sell. He's good as gone.
    Lindsey is the backup PG for most of the year? Buy. We know we're not trading him.
    Rasheed scores 16+ points p/game? Sell. Every time I think he's motivated, I've been wrong.
    Chicago passes the Pistons in the standings? Buy. They will be the hungriest, toughest team.
    Brahma gets 7+ minutes p/game? Sell. I wish he would, but not holding out hope.
    Nazr scores more than Ben? Buy. On a per minutes basis, it would be a no-brainer.
    Pistons win more than 54 games this year? Sell. Again, they don't feel like they need to.


    Some are close, but this is how I would put my $ if pressed.

    Pistons win their division? Buy, but it'll be really close.

    Chauncey makes the allstar team? Buy

    Carlos stays on the team all year and performs well? Sell. I want him to, but don't think he will.

    Lindsey is the backup PG for most of the year? Sell. He'll be a backup PG, but not THE backup PG. I see a trade somewhere along the line.

    Rasheed scores 16+ points p/game? Sell.

    Chicago passes the Pistons in the standings? Sell. God I hope not, but its very possible.

    Brahma gets 7+ minutes p/game? Sell. I'd like to see it, but it won't happen.

    Nazr scores more than Ben? Sell. I'm with Roscoewave on this one.

    Pistons win more than 54 games this year? Sell.

    This should be interpreted as PPG (not total points)

    sell: 45 %, they could, but i figure right around 50, more than 54 will probably win the central

    Pistons win their division? Sell

    Chauncey makes the allstar team? Buy, but not as a starter

    Carlos stays on the team all year and performs well? Sell; this guy's biding his time

    Lindsey is the backup PG for most of the year? Buy

    Rasheed scores 16+ points p/game? Buy, hopefully the opposition having to guard the 5 will free him up a little down low

    Great thread, by the way, Merc.

    Brahma gets 7+ minutes p/game? Buy, he better

    Nazr scores more than Ben? Sell, I think Tay takes his points although he'll draw more defense than Ben did

    Pistons win more than 54 games this year? Sell, the bench isn't strong enough; same 'ol, same 'ol


    Great thread by the way, Merc

    Buy or sell?

    Pistons win their division? Yes and it will be determined in the last 4 games. Get use to parity people.

    Chauncey makes the allstar team? Yes and he will have a great season.

    Carlos stays on the team all year and performs well? No and I doubt that he will finish the year, if at that.

    Lindsey is the backup PG for most of the year? Yes, and he should be. Toughest player off the bench.

    Rasheed scores 16+ points p/game? Yes and what are we saying here...up from 15? If he doesn't approach 20, expect a trade, perhaps before that killer month of March. Realism and a good deal of panic will settle in before the trade deadline.

    Chicago passes the Pistons in the standings? No way. Coaches like Skiles have to have an equal part of toughness and a life philosophy in order to internalize those peaks and lows. Drill sargents are a dime-a-dozen and it doesn't work with the newer generation of ball players.

    Brahma gets 7+ minutes p/game? No way and please people, youth is highly over-rated and so are traditional draft picks.

    Nazr scores more than Ben? Yes, and you can take this one to the bank. I am expecting a 12-12 out of him.

    Pistons win more than 54 games this year? Yes and I have them no worst than 55 and that is with them barely breaking even (9-8) in the killer March month.[/quote]

    Wallace, Nocioni, Hinrich, and Thomas are not part of the new generation of ball players. They guys are old fashioned masochists. Wallace went there because he likes Skiles' style... and of course the money.

    Pistons win their division? Sell, I like Cleveland to surpise this regular season. The Lebron Madness will be at an all-time high!

    Chauncey makes the allstar team? Sell, I just don't see his numbers matching his first half numbers of last year. I saw too many bad habits in the playoffs.

    Carlos stays on the team all year and performs well? Even, if Carlos gets a shot at 20 mins again, this will be the last time we question his effectiveness. All depends on Flips willingness to give him a shot in my opinion.

    Lindsey is the backup PG for most of the year? Sell, i think we've seen the last of long seasons from this vet. Kander can only work so much magic on an aging body.

    Rasheed scores 16+ points p/game? Buy, Sheed gets this easy. I expect to see Sheed's best statisical game in the past 4 years this season.

    Chicago passes the Pistons in the standings? Sell, I doubt it. However, I see Chicago as a playoff team this year. If the Pistons face the Bulls, I'm expecting an upset.

    Brahma gets 7+ minutes p/game? Buy. I get the feeling that this team will be begging for toughness now. It will be hard to leep Maxiel off the floor.

    Nazr scores more than Ben? Buy. Come on. That wouldn't take much. :)

    Pistons win more than 54 games this year? Buy. But it will be like 55 games, instead. :)
