He can something almost no reserve can do (by the way, he ought to be starting) - he can win a game by himself.

Without him, the Hawks would have lost that series.

It is one of the trademarks of Woodson's stupidity that he doesn't play Zaza more.

Zaza can carry a team every 4 games, which is something Wilcox could never do and something Wallace can't do anymore.

You're a ****ing idiot; through and through. Zaza is better because he had a 10 and 12 point playoff game against the Heat? Despite the fact Wilcox has double his scoring averages the past two years.

Default Re: Ben Wallace returning to Pistons

I love making rotations. Pistons fans, help me out:

Stuckey (36) / Bynum (12)
Hamilton (16) / Gordon (32)
Prince (32) / Hamilton (16)
Villanueva (30) / Maxiell (18)
Brown (18) / Wilcox (18) / Wallace (12)

Can Hamilton or Gordon play the point when Stuckey is out (at least that makes one big and one small guard for defense)?

Will Hamilton play any 3? Will Prince play any 4? Can Wallace still play 5 (or will he play the 4)?

from what I hear, they are planning on giving hamilton about 12 mins a night at the 3 and gordon the same at the 1. prince may play some 4. I also expect to see wilcox play the 4 at times.

Finally its done and official.

Glad to have Ben back to solidify our front court.
In a limited role, I believe he will be able to contribute and bring back the blue collar work ethic that we have seemed to lost.

Other things that are being overlooked by outsiders…

•Ben is familiar with many teammates, Rip, Tay, Gordon…
•Ben is familiar with our new coach
•Kander and Abdenour can work wonders to revitalize Ben.

Welcome home Ben!

Wallace played 23 minutes per game for Cleveland last year. Then he got injured and gave them 12 mpg in the playoffs. He isn't going to be a major contributor. This is why he got traded, bought out, and signed to Detroit.

I'm guessing Wallace plays about a quarter per game. Kwame plays because he is the only real big they have. Off myself? What's your problem?

That rotation isnt bad. You just forgot both rookies into it. Austin Daye and Summers. I dont know how much they will play but i excpect Daye to have about 10-13 minutes a game.

Are you serious? CV>>>Zaza

I'd say:

Stuckey (32) / Bynum (12) / Gordon (4)
Hamilton (22) / Gordon (26)
Prince (28) / Hamilton (10) / Daye (10)
Villanueva (28) / Maxiell (15) / Prince (3) / Daye (2)
Brown (18) / Wilcox (20) / Wallace (10)

Summers will just play whenever the team is winning/losing by a lot. Much like Sharpe last year

u seriously think Zaza is better than CV? All zaza does is hustle and rebound. He's a really good role player don't get me wrong, but he's nowhere near CV

Wilcox is so good that OKC got rid of him, and New York didn't make any attempt whatsoever to keep him.

Detroit overpaid to get Wilcox, just like they did with Kwame.

Again, you don't understand basic math. The Pistons are going to pay 26 million for Gordon, CV, Wilcox, Brown, Wallace when instead they could have taken that money and paid for Hedo, Boozer and Zaza and had a far better team.

Boozer wasn't available, Zaza sucks and Hedo is way more overpaid then anybody mentioned above.

Go troll another team jackass.

How about this basic math. The Atlanta Hawks haven't gotten anywhere, in almost forever. If they know how to spend money, and pick good players with that money....why can't they win anything? (unless you think a second round exit is a big win?)

They are at their peak, now...and that peak is second round fodder for the good teams

The Pistons? They will probably claw their way back to the top in the next 2-3 years...and the Hawks, another 20 year nap

Ben Wallace is a great guy. Love to see him help Austin Daye and Charlie Villanueva improve their man to man defense.
