    All the signs were there

    by TheMicrowave

    Lindsey Hunter couldn’t have picked a worse time to be suspended.

    Energy is low. Shot making is inconsistent. Rasheed Wallace is nicked up.

    And now the rotation is compromised, with Coach Flip Saunders uncomfortable playing Carlos Delfino and Flip Murray together.

    The Pistons have a brutal March schedule, one that many fans hoped would be a playoff tuneup. With a tough home loss to Cleveland Wednesday night, and recent losses to Golden State and Miami, the Pistons need to get everyone playing at a high level.

    But Lindsey took “the pills”.

    Pills that were prescribed to his wife. Pills that contained a banned substance. And we still do not understand why he took them.

    If Lindsey had a head cold, a weight loss pill wouldn’t help.

    The local media softballed us with reminders of Lindsey’s character. I don’t doubt he is a good man. A good husband and father but with one careless act, he lost the right to call himself a consummate professional.

    “My bad” won’t cut it if the Pistons go .500 or less while Lindsey cannot play, practice or travel with the team.

    So with that I present, Lindsey Hunter - “All the signs were there”.

    Oh Lindsey, Lindsey. I know, he was aslept and snoring and the dog knocked the bottle off the table and a pill fell into his mouth.

    I am not sure yet if this is the tip of the iceberg of a larger drug problem or if it is a simple as he says.

    How could someone make this kind of mistake? if it is that simple then fine but if it is something more then perhaps compassion should be the response rather than our desire to win a couple more games.

    Yeah, this is a tough pill to swallow.

    It certainly wasn't expected, was it?

    It's difficult to believe him no matter how hard one tries.

    Very disappointing.

    I believe him. Big deal, dude took a diet pill. Or ten. I could take 1000 diet pills and not be able to play as well as Lindsey. Now, if his head swelled up, his upper body became Herculean, and he started hitting homeruns every time he was up to bat, then I would be suspicious.

    Maybe losing Lindsey was a blessing. The Pistons lost every game this year when Lindsey scored 20 or more points.

    So far the Pistons are 4 up and 1 down without Lindsey. Though I would be pleasantly surprised if they win both or the next two games. On the other hand we will never know if having Lindsey for the next two games would have made a difference.

    :hoops:
