    The Cleveland game is a must lose one for the future of the franchise. While losing to the Cavs is a real posibility with this team, I don't think its going to be left for chance. Not content to leave the fate of the franchise solely to Frank's head scratching rotations, I think the staff will sit a player. Who will it be?

    Bonus props if you can figure out who will miss the game on the Cav's side.

    Stuckey is clearly not the best choice, because they actually play .500 ball when he's not playing, and you definitely don't want that. CV is shaky, but he can always be counted on for a head-scratching decision or two... plus he played well last night so we can expect him to play poorly against Cleveland. We all saw what happened with Knight against Irving in the rookie-sophomore game so maybe they'll hope for a repeat.

    So it's between Moose and Drummond. On the one hand, if Moose sits out, then they lose their best scorer, but he doesn't shoot for a high percentage and he's always good for a few turnovers when he's playing. If Drummond sits out, then the team has to counter Kyrie Irving without him backing them up in the paint, which is like a dozen free points, but you're not putting full effort into tanking because you're only replacing 20 minutes.

    I think Drummond sits. Kander comes to them and tells them that his back is hurting. They shut him down for the next three games, only to return against Brooklyn so it doesn't look blatantly obvious. My vote is for Drummond.

    It would send a troubling message to fans and would make the training staff look foolish if Drummond had to sit again.

    I'm guessing they go full steam ahead and win the game.

    If I'm the Pistons, I sit Charlie. He sucks most of the season, but they don't call him Garbage Time Allstar for nothing.

    I'm going to go "off the board" and say Calderon sits.

    We should just forfeit the game to ensure a loss.

    I vote sit em all.

    Kenny English will sit.
    Not playing an actual shooting guard at shooting guard is a surefire way to not win.

    Our Idiot Coach will find some way to sabotage the team. He has no interest in winning.

    Um, he'll likely hold his own against Tristan Thompson and win the matchup?
