Following the Pistons the last few years can best be described as brutal, and disappointing. Not only have we watched guys like Billups and Sheed leave, we are now waiting for Rip to be traded while he rides the pine every night. It's just a disaster.
We sing a guy like Ben Gordon for too much money while we keep Rip last year for no reason at all. Se we could watch another season of worthless 3 guard line ups and the lack of big men.
In comes Greg Monroe. A guy that is not expected to be a star. Ever. A decent #4 probably on a good time in the long run. a 15/9 guy hopefully I would say. Certainly has the ability to be close to a double double guy and you can see some improvement in his defense here and there.
Suffice to say, he finally hit the 20 point mark for the first time in a Piston's win that halted a 4 game skid. They played the Nets that haven't won a road game since mid-November. They have lost 22 of their last 23 road games. Yeah they won't have anyone at a microphone anytime soon except the coach after he gets fired.
Astonishingly, the Pistons are still in the hunt for a playoff spot. That's right. The NBA is complete trash. Especially the East. It is just plain horrible to watch some of these teams the league is so watered down right now. There may be a handful of teams worth watching and that is being nice.
