I'll take this opportunity to re-affirm that my Pistons will be back next year. Joe D, unlike his former backcourt mate, is the best GM in the league and I have total faith that he'll get us back on track.
Unfortunately it's no longer a foregone conclusion. They really fell apart in the playoffs this year. It was like watching a completely different team fromt he one they had in the regular season. However, they're still the best team in the league when they play like they can.
My offseason plan would go like this:
1) Fire Flip (just not playoff coach)
2) Bring in Bill Laimbeer (does play by play for them and I'm sure he'd be a great coach)
3) Trade Sheed (love him when he shows up, but that only happens every other game, plus he has a huge contract)
4) Sign Jalen Rose and another scorer off the bench (we have no bench)
I'm gonna have to get an internet feed to watch the games at Havad next year.
