Monroe is Detroit Basketball, he is our best player, it is outragous that he will likely be the first guy moved...
Or am I blind?
I agree. As much excitement as Josh Smith brings to Detroit, I hate to revert to my gut instincts when the Pistons got him. We should have went after Andre Iguodala. A guy that doesn't need the ball, willing to hang out, work hard, and bust that open shot or drive when needed.
BUT, the season is still early and I'm still hoping the Pistons make me eat my words. There is NO WAY the Pistons don't make an offer to Monroe at this point. He is our rock.
And we have lots of pieces for trade bait so something can happen. February is still a far ways away.
