    I think we need a guy that will stand up to his coach. If the coach tries to get the team to do something stupid like play unselfish or work on defense, the player simply needs to stage a revolt.

    We know exactly how because we saw it happen. Just get some no-namer underachievers, bring them together at the right time, supplement them with a crazy dude, and hire a grumpy old coach to teach them life lessons.

    I never realized how similar the 2004 Pistons were to the Bad News Bears.

    The Bad News Boys!

    Pretty funny. We'd be so disgruntled if the Pistons wouldn't have won that '04 ship by the way. It really helps to know that we got one to brush off all of the close calls and the torturous decline.

    it's strange having to root for losses in order to tank... yesterday against Charlotte for instance, I was not happy about winning against a direct competitor for the ping pong balls

    Lots of good posts in here!

    I think it is too early to start crossing positions off the list that the Pistons don't need. The Pistons should take the best player even if they play Monroe's position. Think Portland not taking Jordan because they already had Clyde Drexler.

    As long as they're unusually methodical for a 20 yr old and play beneath the rim then I don't care who they pick.

    I want somebody who can play above the rim. Block shots, rebound, and throw down lobs. Andre Drummond and Anthony Davis are obvious choices. Don't sleep on John Henson. He's a pogo stick who can do a lot of things without the ball. With Henson, I'm interested to see how his body develops between now and the combine. He's too skinny. We don't need another forward tweener.

    I really like Sullinger. I'm just worried that he would have a hard time playing with Monroe.

    I'm keeping my eye on Myers Leonard. He has all the tools, but I would like to see him dominate some games. 7'0 dudes with his athleticism should be monsters, not just "good".

    The biggest concern about Drummond is his dessire of greatness. It seems basketball is just a hobby for him.. For what I read, he is the one with the most potential but he is still too raw.
    But he is a true Center and have a body.

    Anthony Davis (tonight) scored 27 ponits 14 rebounds and 7 blocks against Arkansas.
    If you want blocks, Davis or Drummond will fill that need.
    For now on, it seems Davis will fill it sooner, and Drummond later.
    Davis is a PF, not even think of him as a Center.

    Perry Jones is someone that nobody is speaking about, atl east, not in this thread. I like him, not sure if he is what we really need. If we miss Anthony Davis and Drummond, then its all about this:

    We need a big, so, Sullinger, Perry Jones must be the obvious picks.
    But I'm not that high on Sullinger, he is 6-8 and is not very atlethic beneath the rim. we really don't need that, We need a explosive big who can jump higher for rebounds, blocks and dunks than Monroe.

    Perry Jones have the size and the jump, but despite I like him ,I have my doubts about him being a little bit too lazy.

    I think the best move if we miss Davis and Drummond is go for the best players abailable, then I think Harrison Barnes and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are the choices.

    Both are small forwards, both will be awesome players in the NBA.

    Sorry if I wrote too much, but everything about this pistons season is already said and read. we are officaly Tanking

    Watched the UK game tonight. Davis looks pretty good. He's still built like a teenager. Once he fills out, he will be hard for opposing players to handle.

    His line looked good tonight, 27 points, 14 rebounds, and 7 blocks. Small grain of salt: Arkansas is a pretty small team, so those numbers are a little inflated.

    Anthony Davis may never be a great offensive player, but he definitely can bring it on the defensive end. He's a shot-blocking freshman who rarely gets into foul trouble. That's special.

    I'll say it... if there a top 3 player, they better be more then a one way player... we need a player that is going to be an all star quality player year in and year out not just a def stopper (there isn't going to be another Big Ben in todays ruled NBA).

    If we somehow get better and slide in the draft to around 10 then you take a chance on a player that is unbalanced to one end of the floor or the other...
