  1. Watched Sam Dekker (Houston) in action against Golden State last night. Very impressive. Second year in the NBA, and he performs like a vet. Love to see one of our rooks -- Ellenson, Gbinije, SJ -- develop like that. Kid can play, and plays hard.
  2. Agreed. And after a few seasons, the outlook on who needs to be moved could be very different than it appears now. Every game thread seems to conclude with near knee-jerk reactions about individual weaknesses, and suggestions about who needs to be replaced. As I say, give it time, let some growth occur, and then we shall see. I'm still curious about how the starting five with Reggie in place will perform. Looking to last season and playoff performances is at best only suggestive. IMHO, the growth prospects are exciting enough to stop worrying about present particulars. Just as an example, KCP's shooting seems to be on the upside, much better than many on this board thought was possible. Bottom line, positive individual changes are possible. Patience, Pistons fans.
  3. What's Tobias's weakness on defense? And is there potential for improvement? Hate to see the guy benched at crunch time.
  4. Very disappointing response after the Clippers debacle. No offense from the points. Hurry on back, Reggie.
  5. But this was "their first game against a superteam", as you posted to begin this thread. Raisin' the bar a bit, aren't ya? I'm not exactly a hoops guru, but it seems to me that the Knicks have the talent to be a winner, but play as a group of individuals who have yet to learn what they need to do as a team, particularly defensively, to get it done. Then again, I think we may have simply worn them down. By the middle of the 4th qtr., they were out of gas, beaten.
  6. The Reggie we've seen is the Reggie we're gonna get, though I'm sure SVG gets on him about giving up on the over-dribbling (and his teammates as well, I'd imagine). We shall see how adaptable he is, though I expect it will take a season or two of adjustments, if it happens at all.
  7. Ump had a better view of the play in real time than the replays allowed.
  8. I'd just about given up on Victor, when all of a sudden, out of the blue, he turns on one, squares it up, and hits a monster shot. Has he emerged from a slump, or was it just an isolated success? We can only hope, of course, but Lord knows we need his offense down the stretch -- Miggy's too, for that matter.
  9. Playoff competition with this bullpen? Lotsa luck, folks.
  10. Playoff competition with this bullpen? Lotsa luck, folks.
  11. Nail-breaker, nail-biter, somehow we prevailed. Breathe easy again.
  12. I'm not sure how the Tigers are weak at handling speed -- weaker, that is, than other teams. Those two consecutive bunts would have been successful against just about any defense. How so?
  13. Amazing the way K-rod can get good hitters to flail away at that breaking stuff of his.
