    You can watch all of the scoring in the preseason blue-white scrimmage in less than 5 minutes here:

    Good to see that Drummond is still stealing the ball and leading fast breaks. Unteachable that is.

    Having Stuckey in the rotation takes my excitement for the season away.

    Even Rodney Stuckey can't dampen my enthusiasm for this season.

    For the first time in a long time, we appear to be heading in a direction.
    It's quite possible that the "product on the floor" will be worth the price of admission and the front office won't feel the need to insult the intelligence of the fanbase and hire a bunch of D-list musicians to perform at halftime.

    Good point. This is going to be an exciting year no matter what. As long as Rodney gets the green light to shoot threes and we get MC Hammer back for a halftime show...I'm good.

    I don't get the whole "Eastern Conference has been terrible of late" bit. Miami is the two-time defending champion. You have Pacers, who IMO are just as good, evidenced by the fact that it took Miami 7 games to get past them. Then there's Chicago which should be a good team with Rose back. Knicks and Nets are loaded with talent. There are plenty of very good teams in the East.

    The problem is that the bottom dwellers in the East are just so bad. But that doesn't mean that the East is not a tough conference.

    What's up with Mo? He's really putting KCP as 3rd on the depth chart behind a 38 year old Billups and Rodney Stuckey?

    If that is true, then he's either saying that this year's draft was the worst in the history of the league or that Joe can't pick well.

    I think he is honestly trying to light a fire under Stuckey to elevate his game. That said, its been tried before and won't work.

    Maybe the Pistons throw out their existing video library every time they fire a head coach.

    Perhaps Maurice doesn't have access to previous tapes from last year where Stuckey actually made the '12/'13 season's "best coaching decision" by benching himself in favor of Kyle Singler.

    I think the win-loss records will bear it out that the West is much better than the East. Last year, six teams won 2/3 of their games. Five of those six are from the West:

    Miami
    Oklahoma City
    San Antonio
    Denver
    LA Clippers
    Memphis

    I think almost any reasonable metric chosen will show that the West is better than the East as a whole. This has been true for quite some time.

    I agree with Walt. I'd rather go through Denver, LAC and SA in the playoffs instead of Chi, Indiana and say Brooklyn.
