Well, Ladies and Gentlemen, since this is the most tragic Pistons team in memory, I thought it might be nice to talk about what would constitute a successful season, and what individual player goals might look like. Since that would be a fairly brief discussion, I was wondering what young players forum members might be interested in acquiring. I'm not talking about guys like Blake Griffin. I'm talking about young players with promise, and potential free agents a year or two down the road. I'll start with individual player goals, starting with what I believe to be the most important, and moving down from there. 1. Brandon Knight becomes a legit point guard. I love his athleticism. He's got a nice stroke. He looks like he can get to the basket. Can he be a point guard, or just another in a series of combo guards? His instincts for the game are promising. His defensive hustle is impressive. He's had more assists than turnovers in his last few games, and he seems to be getting more and more comfortable. I would like to see him average 13-14 ppg and 6-7 apg over the last month of the season, and show the poise necessary to be a quality starting point guard. 2. We win the Drummond lottery. 3. Austin Daye consistently puts together two elements of his game. Whether it's consistent perimeter shooting, defensive competence, or the ability to post up swingmen, he needs to find two elements in his game to bring every night. If he can't do that, then we wasted a pick. I still have faith in him, but his time to show improvement is running out. If he can manage to do that, then we've found ourselves a piece of the puzzle. I would like to see Daye earn 20 minutes a night over the last month of the season. 4. Super Collider shows that he can be a high quality sixth man at both guard spots. He's a solid defender. He can handle the point in stretches, but I don't like him there for more than 12-15 minutes a game. He can score with the ball in his hands, but he hasn't shown the stroke to be able to log heavy minutes at the 2. If he can give us 12-15 productive minutes at each guard spot, then he can almost live up to his contract, and help us win games. I would like to see Stuckey give us 12-13 ppg and 3-4 apg off of the bench. 5. Greg Monroe continues to develop. The reason that this is so low is that his ceiling is already so high. At worst he's an 18-9 guy. It would be nice if he could become a poor man's Kevin Love with better defense. I would like to see Greg average 20-10 over the last month of the season. What say you?
