I am talking about your leading Piston pre-season scorer Jason Maxiel and Amir Johnson who shot over 80% from the field to go along with some boards, blocks, and an assortment of other impressive althletic plays. As excited as I am about these two the scheptic in me expects Amir to spend 80% of the season in the D-league and for Maxiel to lead the team in DNP's. I can totally see Flip going with a soft 9-man set with Hunter, Murry, Dyess and grudgingy playing Delfino enough to keep Dumars happy. If we were a lottery team then I am sure these two would be dubbed the future frontcourt and would be thrown into the rotation but we are not. Other contenders are able to find time for their youth, why can't we? Watching these two play in the pre-season I cannot see how a coach can't be thinking how usefull they could be. Especially with our lack of an inside game last season. There has to be a happy medium in here somewhere. I know its going to be different when these guys start seeing regular sets in games that count but so so far they have both worked very hard and have done everything the coaches have asked. Only way they are going to keep improving is to play and develope confidence in real games.
