    It might be a stretch, but he his defense has come a long way since we stole him from the Wiz. LOL:stirthepot:

    Maybe the team has been watching reruns of Flippers match up zone DVD?

    I don't think he will. It's possible though because if Chauncey could get on the team, then Rip can.

    A tokenism should be thrown the Piston's way: CB is definitely the first pick (anyone know his contract bonus add-ons) and you are right, this opens the door for Rip. Although, if Sheed continues to get consistent, he stands a very good chance.

    Individually, nobody on this team is a great defender. The only person on the team even close to playing at the NBA Defensive team level is Afflalo. That`s sad because of course he is a rookie, getting very limited minutes.

    As a team, sometimes in the zone, the team defense is very good.

    Rip is a good defender, but also a hot head and plays with emotion/chip on his shoulder. Does he lead the league in techs yet? He has to control himself and stop complaining or trying to do it all himself when he gets burned...
