Sure looked like a #1 option in '96 when he led the Pistons to 46 wins and a playoff appearance with Allan Houston, an aging Joe Dumars, a past his prime Otis Thorpe, Lindsey Hunter, and Mark West and Don Reid splitting starts at center.

Looked like a #1 option again the following season leading the Pistons to 54 wins with Dumars, Hunter, Thorpe, and the starting center spot split between Theo Ratliff, Reid, and Grant Long.
