    Joe Dumars announced today that Monroe signed. Just as expected Monroe signs his rookie contract, no surprises there.

    Monroe will start day one, bank on it.

    Cool, now do me a favor. Seeing as how you've seen more of GM than anybody else, how would a high/low post of he and Al Jefferson look together? Brap and I can't seem to come to term .......LOL

    A safer prediction would be

    "Monroe will start one day, bank on it."

    :D

    Our biggest impact this off season gets 7 posts. Yet LeBone gets hundreds in just hours.

    I promise to do my part in balancing it out after getting to see the kids play tomorrow night. To be fair all my posts about the idiot from the south have been negative, and sadly this site is getting way to negative to the point I almost skip most piston topics right now.

    :nono: The Monroe thread that Roscoe started when he got drafted by us has about 170 replies.

    That team would make the playoffs, they would then lose in the playoffs, the loss would show them their shortcomings on the defensive end. By Monroes 3rd year they'll turn the corner, as both he and BigAL would be in contract years, looking for big extensions, which we would oblige because CV & Max ($15M) will be gone.

    I don't get the "this site is too negative" comment.

    There's a lot of good earnest BB discussions around here.

    I was for (or at least not against) getting Jefferson prior to the draft. I don't like the fact that I perceive both of these guys to be PF's now regardless of how they may compliment one another.

    I'm not a diehard 'We need a C!' guy either.

    That's three negative words in one post.

    after yesterday's summer league game, I don't want to hear anyone saying "Monroe may be the better player" - don't fool yourselves, pleeeez. Maybe he'll end up being better because of Cousins issues - but Cousins would have been the real deal for the Pistons. But at least the team won at the end of last season instead...

    I guess some are questioning Monroe's motor:

    Las Vegas Summer League: Greg Monroe's huge effort not enough as Pistons fall to Knicks 92 - 80

    So Monroe has a "switch"?
