The pistons are just too slow paced to succeed in the nba. They don't have someone who can turn on the jets and get 30 when they need it. They are a starting 5 of above average defenders and decent scorers. Not a single person stands out to me in these playoffs. Bench has McDyess and thats really the only guy to right home about.
Joe D needs to get a superstar in here. We need Rip+Chauncey, but Sheed is getting older, slower and his shot is fading. His temper hurts the team. C-webb is likely to retire, if not also unlikely he will sign with the Pistons. Can they even afford him? Tayshaun is a great guy but lacks intensity it seems like sometimes.
Joe D has a make or break his GM future season ahead of him. We need to make some major changes to the roster. Adding a good coach wouldn't hurt either. Flip Saunder's is incapable of winning big games it seems. He had Nazr out in the first quarter... WTF???
We need a superstar big. KG or Jermaine O'neil. Someone who is used to carrying a team who won't mind being a second or third option on different nights. We need an aggressor. Someone to tear down the boards like big ben did but produce a little more offense.

It's not his fault but they need to move him. Get someone in there that has the balls to call out the players a point blank, not when you're down. Doug Collins seems like a very good mentor/motivater . His offense scheme is sketchy though because he'll change his scheme in a second if something else works for a game or two. He also gives his younger player way to many chances to.
