Imagine Rip right now on an established team with great leadership. He'd come in as a spoke in the wheel, and wouldn't try taking over all the time, like he does on this team (to very bad effect - since our team NEEDS Stuckey to take over). But on a championship level team, Rip would be a fantastic pickup. Some team that wants to win a championship this year or next year is going to really want to find a way to put a deal together that works for the Pistons. Of all the potentially available shooting guards in the league, Rip is far and away the best available for a top team.
