Who should start, Ben Wallace or Jonas Jerebko?
Pistons coach Lawrence Frank might have an interesting decision for tonight's road game against Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Does Frank continue to start defensive stalwart Ben Wallace, or does he opt for more firepower by starting Jonas Jerebko?

In Saturday night's 94-91 win over Portland, Wallace started his fourth game in five days. It paid off, as Wallace limited the damage by the Trail Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge, who entered the game seventh in NBA scoring and put up 25 points.

Jerebko entered late in the first quarter and scored 11 points in 21 minutes. He has come off the bench the past four games, and before Saturday's game Frank was resolute about making that decision.

Re: Who should start, Ben Wallace or Jonas Jerebko?
I think the young guys should be playing. I love what Wallace has done in Detroit. He helped us win a championship and has been a force on the defensive end of the court for his career. This is probably his last season in the NBA. Let Jerebko develop. I'm not concerned about winning games this year. I'd rather lose as many as possible and have a chance at a top 3 pick. Then we'll be better. What also will make us better is getting some of the young guys some game experience. We need to see more Austin Daye too. Let's see what we have with him.

Start Wallace because I like seeing Monroe match up as a PF. It is good for his development and the pistons future if he becomes a dominate low post PF rather than a center...
