    I don't mind it. However I hate how the bench is never played. Our starters are human, and when they have a good lead or when a player is doing bad bench them damnit! That's what killed us. 4/5 starters didn't perform well in the ECF and we had no one of that bench except Dice and an occasional Lindsey Hunter to perform. Flip needs to change his ways.

    I agree but could you be more specific. How does Flip need to change his ways? Play Delfino more? Play DD more? Different combinations?

    Thats the biggest one. I don't know exactly who I want him to play until Joe makes some moves. If we get a young center then play him over DD stuff like that. I do want the bench to played. Delfino has to be in the rotation, and give the rooks a chance midway through the season and see what they can do. I think we'll have new players here and MO, and tony will be gone. Whoever we get we need to play them because our starters have played a lot over these 4 years. Try getting the minutes down to 29-30.

    Flip also needs to find a way to get Ben more involved because other teams are cheating and leaving Ben open. Maybe get him in more pick&rolls and make him cut to the basket. Get the guy some confidence and I bet you his ft% goes back to 55-60%.

    Flip also needs to get more plays going inside. We died because of the jumpshot and we need play in the playoffs that can get the Pistons paint points. I think Joe will get a good assistant and Flip needs to try getting a good partnership with whoever it might be.

    Good luck Flip!:)

    If Hill or Rose are available, it'll be due to a buyout. I could see either one of them being willing to come to Detroit for cheap if that's the case. Both have expressed supporting the Pistons during the playoffs. Basically, I have seen signing Rose as a formality. He's been begging to come here the past two years.

    I think Wells is easily the best of the three, but I'm not sure he'll sign for the MLE. Obviously, Sheed can have some pull in this.

    Additionally, I think we should look at signing Chris Wilcox if he doesn't demand too much. A lot of teams are starting two Power Forwards nowadays, so size isn't a real issue anymore. Shaq's the only real center left, and he's approaching the grave. I'd even be fine with starting Dice. Frankly, I think he deserved Ben Wallace's minutes during the playoffs.

    If we replace Wallace with added scoring, are we actually better off? I think so.
