Don't really have the time to hit on all of Low's points but to quickly respond, I don't have a problem with Laimbeer. Just think the love is disproportionate to his talent and more importantly to this team's needs. He's tough. I get that. It's great to assign an identity that sells tickets so people come watch a mediocre team. But that doesn't make a great coach. Nor does playing under other great coaches. There are a bunch of coaches out there with those qualifications. The answer isn't toughness. The answer is talent. The problem with this team the last 5 or so years has been the front office. I personally don't care much for tradition for tradition's sake. If I thought Karl Malone was the best guy to lead the Pistons back to relevance, I'd cheer him on with all my might then wake up every morning for a year and watch him elbow Zeke in the face. I really just want the team to do some combination of win, show the potential to be a winning team, or at the least be entertaining. I don't care much about the Pistons "bloodline". That Dumars won a championship as a player and then built a championship team as a GM is cool. All the continuance I need.
