Vote on the poll and tell us why you feel the way you do.
I fully expect a slightly over .500 record 45 plus wins... and a 6-7 slot in the playoffs next year, anything less really means that the young talent we have won't be the right pieces to the puzzle and Joe needs to be sent packing.
Get lucky in the draft and make one smart trade and I think they are on their way to a winning record.
Yes they can, they will be able.. the thing is if they will do it. I think that if the Lottery goes our way, we can have a good record next season.
After the 4-20 start this year they have been a winning team....could be better next year with a good draft pick and a BG amnesty.
I was thinking today that I am very optimistic. I don't know if the pick will have a huge impact...its too early to tell who'd we get. The improvement of the team as a unit is very encouraging.
Pistons started 5-20 this season. They've gone 11-7 during the last 18 games. Kinda need to see how they fare during this streak of tough games. We're playin our way out of lottery assistance...to the point of drafting another spare part. If the coach can continue to show improvement in team play, than it's possible. Nemo predicts a 39-43 record for next season......as of now.
Looks good from where I see. But we can't keep winning too many games. A draft pick outside of the top 10 will consign us to NBA purgatory for another year and we have virtually no cap space to scrabble for free agents. If we collapse late season and pull a top 6 pick, I could easily see us surpussing the .500 next year.
44-38 record next year.
Only 2 choices and there is no overlap or gaps? Suspiciously simple. I'll abstain.
No doubt. Rascoe needs to read TheeTFD's training manual on how to create polls.
The word "can" is the tricky part. If you don't vote yes to that, you are one deranged monster.
Yeah. No doubt I woulda chose "Bup Bup" if it was available.
The memo I got from Rascoe stated, "That a "NO" vote constitutes separation from PF.com and all its subsidiaries, forever banished." Looks like EVERYBODY got the same memo. I even went as far as to scour the votes looking for a Joe Dumars, or a Neil Diamond........but no luck.
Looks like a slam dunk to me.
I think the real question is how many games over 60 will they win.
This is a "feel good" kind of poll. Rascoe is sneaky like that sometimes.
I voted "yes" because of...this is Rascoe's poll. Don't try....yeah Better safe than "find to yourself a new forum"
Picking a contributor or a spare part isn't necessarily tied to our draft position. Our standing affects our chances in the Davis sweepstakes but finding a player that will shine is more a factor of hard work and luck. There will be guys that will outshine some of the top 5 and a top five guy is bound to be a bust. Once you move into the 5-8 range, it becomes very murky as to who projects better than their peers. We absolutely need a contributor not another Daye situation
I have us picking 8th-10th. Some of those teams near us are showing signs of collapse, while the Pistons are learning teamwork.............
