Default The Pistons still seem 'very good' but not great

The East is pretty wide open this year, with the Bulls and Cavs struggling (for now, at least). Tough to say who would come out on top in the playoffs between the pistons and celtics. Pistons have the experience, celtics have the bigger set of stars, but lesser help for those stars

right I think Stuckey's play will decide weather this team is championship material.

I think it's tough to put it all on Stuckey who is a rookie. Their big men have been what scares me the most. Why did we lose last year in the ECF? Because Lebron had a wide open lane right to the basket. He wasn't going to miss too many lay ups just like most people in the league won't.

I agree, don't throw this on Stuckey. I think it's on the coaches. Both Boston and Detroit have veterans who know how to win games and practically coach themselves. The East is all about being healthy and hitting stride come playoff time. Any team that limps into the playoffs will be easy pickings for a healthy team of veterans, whether that team is Detroit or Boston. Boston's starters are playing 40 minutes per game, while Detroit's starters are around 30-35. It'll make a difference during the home stretch in March and April.

Also, look at the coaching. Doc and Flip both have great starters, but some relative unknowns on their bench. The coach that can better integrate their bench and youth will be the team that can win the 8 minutes or so when the starters aren't dominating the game.
