Default Pistons Only Kidding, Tanking for Future

MIAMI - Pistons veterans Rip Hamilton and Rasheed Wallace shared a laugh with reporters earlier today, being quite frank about the Pistons "save it for the playoffs" approach to the rest of this season.

"We know we'll make it in 8th, 7th seed so we got it from there. Actually I think we won more road games this season anyway we thrive as the underdog." - Rip Hamilton

"We could've had it we were just trying to keep teams guessing, you know, we can't show them how we really do it until its the post season. I don't want to get injured or anything, this is the regular season." - Rasheed Wallace

"We just need to keep working hard. I was getting pretty hot there some nice scoring nights, also finding the open man making the hustle play, coach sat me down and let me know to tone it down a little, I mean... this is the regular season." - Rodney Stuckey

I'm sure Curry doesn't find it funny. A coach wouldn't let his players tank games because it's their job on the line. It doesn't make sense to tank games and still end up with a pick outside the lottery. This team just isn't that good. They are mediocre.

obviously its a joke.

the worst part about this season is thast stuckey hasn't emerged as the leader. maybe he would if he was given the green light by curry.

Are you kidding me?
No, seriously, are you kdding me?

WE HAVE BEEN FRICKEN WAITING ALL SEASON FOR RODNEY STUCKEY TO EMERGE AS A LEADER. COACH HAS PUT THE BALLL IN HIS HANDS WAY TOO OFTEN FOR STUCKEY ONLY TO BLOW IT. WE HAVE BENCHED AN ALL STAR TO TRY TO HELP HIM DEVELOP.

We're trying to make Stuckey the leader. I think every person in our management and every player is trying to do so.

The problem? Stuckey has never given more than 10% effort for more than 5 games this season.

doubtful. stuckey is our best player IMO.

he's like a mix of deron and wade.

instead he averages 6.7 FGA per game. he might have been an allstar this season if AI wasn't on the team. AI is an ideal sixth man, anything more at this point in his career is about marketing and PR.
