    The end? Yeah okay buddy.

    They have been to the ECF five consecutive times. Until they don't make it there I would hold off on making threads like this.

    Exactly, the Pistons could make some moves and be right back in it.

    Default Re: What do you do if you're detroit?

    Blow it up. They need to get new blood in there as the current group just isn't getting it done anymore.

    The bigger question is what options are available, and what can they do. Who do they rebuild around? No easy answers here. Dumars has his work cut out for him this off season.

    Default Joe D will have to mix it up

    The pistons are just too slow paced to succeed in the nba. They don't have someone who can turn on the jets and get 30 when they need it. They are a starting 5 of above average defenders and decent scorers. Not a single person stands out to me in these playoffs. Bench has McDyess and thats really the only guy to right home about.


    Joe D needs to get a superstar in here. We need Rip+Chauncey, but Sheed is getting older, slower and his shot is fading. His temper hurts the team. C-webb is likely to retire, if not also unlikely he will sign with the Pistons. Can they even afford him? Tayshaun is a great guy but lacks intensity it seems like sometimes.


    Joe D has a make or break his GM future season ahead of him. We need to make some major changes to the roster. Adding a good coach wouldn't hurt either. Flip Saunder's is incapable of winning big games it seems. He had Nazr out in the first quarter... WTF???


    We need a superstar big. KG or Jermaine O'neil. Someone who is used to carrying a team who won't mind being a second or third option on different nights. We need an aggressor. Someone to tear down the boards like big ben did but produce a little more offense.

    Can you imagine a starting lineup of:
    Rip
    Chauncey
    Prince
    Maxiell
    KG

    Default Who expects Flip Saunders to be gone after this season?

    I think Flip is not the perfect fit for this Detroit team. Do you think he will stay for next season?

    I think hes done. 2 years of dissapointment and the Pistons had more passion and discipline under Brown.

    I'd be less than surprised.

    I want to see Bill Laimbeer possibly. I trust Joe to make the right decision.

    I think he'll be gone, but honestly the main reason why Detroit has only 1 title when they probably should have at least 2, is because Joe Dumars didn't draft Carmelo Anthony over Darko Milicic.

    Give the Pistons 'Melo and they probably rule the East for a while. And they had him right there, giftwrapped in the no.2 spot.

    It's not his fault but they need to move him. Get someone in there that has the balls to call out the players a point blank, not when you're down. Doug Collins seems like a very good mentor/motivater . His offense scheme is sketchy though because he'll change his scheme in a second if something else works for a game or two. He also gives his younger player way to many chances to.

    Rick Carlile?

    If he's not fired, Dumars should be. Flip is a loser.

    I think he gets sent packing.. I wouldn't mind not having to see him do that nervous tick thing where he juts out his chin every 5 seconds.

    Try to move up in the draft. Rebuild around Amir Johnson, Maxiell, Rip, Tayshaun and find a new point guard.
