Nothing against Leur, but he's more of a come off the bench kind of guy. I like what he's done but without having legit All-Stars on this team it's just not the right fit for the starting lineup. Drummond clearly isn't going to be that guy. He was our one hope. We really need one of these young guys to step their game up. Everything still feels extremely mediocre.

Ironic I mentioned my disappointment with Drummond and then I see this today.

Quote:
They needed talent; they would figure out the rest later. The figuring it out part has been harder than expected, especially with both Jackson and Drummond plateauing. Detroit has quietly explored the trade market for each of its franchise centerpieces, according to sources across the league, and come away disappointed with the potential return. (Van Gundy himself has said anyone is available for “the right price.”) – via ESPN

Quote:
Any Drummond deal at the deadline is an extreme long shot, but Jackson remains in play for Minnesota, Orlando, New Orleans, or some mystery destination. Even if Detroit keeps him, missing the playoffs would put dramatic changes on the table this summer. – via ESPN

And even Reggie still....

The Pelicans have kicked the tires on Jackson, league sources say, though nothing ever got serious. – via ESPN

we take turns picking on speific player, but none of them are the specific issue. We simply need a superstar. Get one if you can, otherwise stick with the status quo because consistency is more valuable than a microscopic upgrade in talent.

He legit could be the best PF in the league right now...

He's a C fwiw

Denver experimented with him at PF in a twin towers kind of thing in the beginning of the season. They quickly learned he's only meant to play C too.

I completely disagree. The Knicks and Lakers have tried to do that. The Lakers learned very fast that doesn't work. You either need to be really good or really bad I've been saying it forever. Trying to be mediocre is the dumbest move in basketball. If you can't land a top pick and hope they turn into a star and you can't land a big time FA you find yourself stuck in mediocrity, which is exactly what the Pistons have been doing. We had a few guys that we hoped would turn into stars. It's obviously not happening. Dre is a 4 or 5 option on a contending team. Until he learns to score better, shoot better, and at this point play defense better he may never be an all-star again. And he's our best chance at a star player.... It's really dumb to try to fight for an 8 seed every year. Pretty soon I will be calling for SVG to go. He's already not getting along with his C again. Things aren't looking great.

I was complaining about Dre but I still think he's one of the top 50 under 25. KCP was midway through the list. Dre didn't even make it. Apparently when they shopped him they must have really not got any good offers lol.

Here's the latest Reggie Jackson trade rumor. 3 way trade with Orlando and the Lakers.

If we keep trading with Orlando we're just going to end up with their team lol.

I don't like Payton at all. Hezonja sucks, but I suppose there is upside. Williams is a better scorer than anyone we have I suppose.

I think there's a decent amount of people that think Williams is a better player than Jackson. I still think on a contending team he's a 6th man. He can definitely really score.

I heard KCP's name being thrown out there a few hours ago. Odd since the latest reports were the Pistons were prepared to pay him. I did feel like they weren't going to make a move. I feel like Reggie may be moved in the off season if he doesn't step it up. They aren't going to want him and KCP with big contracts. That would leave no room to get better. Someone is going to have to go.
