Detroit beat writers have always been bad, but they've taken a huge step backwards this year. Rob Parker telling fans not to complain and enjoy the ride, some Freep writer giving Evans a B because he has a good attitude, and McCosky asking Flip questions about everything but the Pistons. Thankfully Mr. Blakely has decided to keep a blog making non biased comments about the true state of our teams, I'm calling this mandatory reading. http://www.mlive.com/pistons/weblog/ His opening take on Darko was pretty eye opening to me, makes sense, Joe hasn't just given up on Darko, he's given up on any projects, and decided to crash and burn with the starting 6 for the forseeable future. As for the Det news and Freep, yeah we're having a great season, but there are questions about this team, and discussing these questions is supposed to be your job. Here's a few if they read this: Is DMC benched because of problems with ability, attitude, or something else? Why is Evans getting so much PT over Delfino? What's going on with the development of the rooks? What happens if one of the big 6 gets hurt? Any plan on reducing minutes so we dont have tired legs? Why the rebounding problems? Status of Big Ben's contract? What's up with Dale? And don't tell me about JMax's attitude, can he play in the NBA, and at what position?
