    The complete list of Detroit awesomeness:

    How good would this roster would be if one player could be swapped for any other player in the league? James or Durant for Prince or Howard for Chaz? 60+ win team? 55+ win team? Lottery?

    You swap Durant for Prince and we're a 2nd round playoff team.

    Knight, English, Singler and Drummond will be higher after this season... that's for sure.

    The big question is if Stuckey, Villanueva, Prince, Jerebko can rise up..

    Stuckey might have hit his ceiling. Villanueva could move up if he gets minutes (not that I'm condoning this). Prince will continue to drop. Jerebko will make a big jump.

    No way a guy is ranked 49th in the league and feels snubbed by an Olympic invite omission.

    He's just young, low profile, and has been stuck on a losing team. Improperly ranked.

    Also, you have Villanueva and then 6 Pistons ranked beneath him. That puts their whole list into question.

    JJ is already in the HOF discussions. With a big jump he'll be in the GOAT discussions.

    Jonas Jerebko, Hall of Famer? « PistonPowered

    As much as I love Jerebko, Hall of Fame talk borders on insanity. I just hope he returns to doing some of the things he was doing as a rookie.

    Jerebko a HOF? lol

    I like the guy, but I don't see any HOF in this roster. Maybe Monroe..

    Did you read the article? Its because he's like a basketball pioneer in Sweden and the Hall of Fame is not exclusive to the NBA.

    Slippy's on-point.
    Jerebko is paving the way for Swedish dudes the same way that Charlie Villanueva is paving the way for young Dominicans.

    Yes, I read it.

    But even if he is from another country, that's stupid.

    That means than Thabo Sefolosha will be a HOF for being the first Swiss player?

    The NBA should open up an official hall of shame. That would be entertaining to visit that.

    It's complicated. His wedding dress would probably be on display in the HOS.

    Man... I can't spin that one.

    Off season workout summaries:
    Knight- ball handling/ leadership
    Stuckey- colliding
    Prince- vacation
    Monroe- rebounding/ endurance jump drills
    Drummond- situational aweness/ learning playbook
    Daye- probably finishing the pushup routine (seriously)
    B.O.T.- sauna work/ extreme weight loss/ endurance tweeting
    English- brown nosing/ hall monitor training class
    Maxiell- probably more weightlifting with Ben
    Ben- probably forcing everybody to lift weights
    Kander- thinking of new ways to haze BOT

    Any other information on the other guys?
    coynejeremy and BallDon'tLie like this.
