Greg Monroe representing Pistons at 2011 Draft Lottery
Greg Monroe will represent the Pistons at the NBA lottery this week, which is ironic for two reasons. If the rest of the Pistons had shown as much professionalism as Monroe did, the team wouldn't be in the lottery. And this may be the first time all year they are actually calling Monroe's number. "I probably could count them on my hand, the plays that were called for me throughout the year," Monroe said Friday. Monroe laughed as he said it, and I doubt he is bitter about John Kuester's offensive choices. But it was ridiculous. Monroe was arguably the Pistons' best player for the last half of the season.
