Like I was saying in the last post, we can turn this around fast. I was reading this today too. Obviously, our roster has holes. We've had even more with all the injuries. Check out this:
The Pistons have had their full roster for only 11 games this season because of injury. In those games they are 7-4. Players have missed 138 games combined because of injury. Last night, Richard Hamilton (sprained ankle), Jason Maxiell (back strain) and Chris Wilcox (strained left hamstring) were all out.
I look at the injuries as a blessing in disguise. We weren't going to be contenders this year. A lottery pick helps us a lot. We would have won more games with a full roster and been just mediocre than bad (I've said all along it was a mediocre team). With a mediocre pick we wouldn't have a potential game changer. I don't want to be the team fighting for the last playoff spot. This could be a good thing for us, in the long run.
