Frank finally has the team playing well, it's too bad the schedule makers were such a bitch early in the season. If they can keep it up I don't see any reason they can't knock Milwaukee or Boston out of the playoff picture before it's all said and done. Still a lot of games to be played.

It's time to switch Drummond and Maxiell. He has done his apprenticeship, and there should be no game where he doesn't play under 25 minutes from here on in... This is how it should be, I hope the Pistons staff feel the same and pull the trigger

Eh, Drummond plays best when Bynum is on the floor, so I doubt Drummond starts this season.

i'd say he should be getting between 25-30 per night now... At the moment he is getting about 19-23 minutes, that needs to be bumped up a tad

I think they're playing Maxiell so much because they are showcasing him a bit. It's the only thing that makes sense. Maxiell will be turning 30 and I really don't see him as part of the future plans unfortunately. Drummond definitely needs more minutes. He's played great for a rookie. If he had minutes he would probably be in the conversation for ROY. Daye and CV have played well too (in very limited minutes as well). I'd really like to see Daye get more of a chance. I don't want to trade him and have him go to another team and just tear it up. He shoots the ball too well and has that length that is just seems like he's going to be a solid player.
