    That team had the 25th best offense of 29 teams, and was ranked 2nd in defense. In their case, defense can get you into the first round of the playoffs.

    I will probably go with this current team, only because of Ben Gordon much better than Hunter offensively, Villenueva better than anyone we had at the forward position off the bench. Grant Hill (all-star) beeter than our current all stars including the rejuvenated Tracy McGrady. We sucked back then just as we are sucking now, however, I regretfuly give the arrow to 2010 Pistons, (Shaking as I write this).

    The last time to my recollection that we had this many tweeners was in 1980 team when we were loaded with guards and tweeners. We finished near the bottom of the Central Division that year.

    We had Guards; Norman Blake, Larry Drew, Tony Fuller, Keith Herren, Ron Lee, John Long, Terry Tyler and Larry Wright, These guards were playing G/F like forty going north. Only thing back then we had Bob McAdoo who could rebound all those guard misses.

    Grant Hill made me want to wear Fila's and drink Sprite.

    Ben Gordon/Rodney Stuckey/Rip Hamilton/Tayshaun make me want to throw random objects at Joe D.

    I think I'll go with 1995.

    1995 won 46 games. I just don't see this years team pulling it off.

    It's hard to measure the intangibles that Eric Leckner, Mark Macon, Negele Knight, Walter Bond, and Mike Peplowski bring to the table.

    Negele Knight was my favorite intangible Piston until Amir Johnson suited up.

    Actually, that's not true. Between Negele and Amir, there was Korleone.

    Mark Macon was one of those guys that would either underwhelm you with mediocre play or totally overwhelm you with one single highlight.

    ...heck of a baller in high school!
