    Except for one missing piece: Wade. You must equalize Wade in all manners, especially on the offensive, since he is never matched. This of course, means that come February, that JD will make his move toward Gay.

    I figure Wade's knee will take care of Wade better than anyone on the Pistons.

    ...or his back, his shoulder, a wrist, an ankle, maybe a groin, calf muscle or neck.

    His orthopedic surgeon.

    I am very excited about next season. But, just making the playoffs would be a HUGE step. The Pistons finished 29-53 last season. Beating the World Champs (66-16) is Kool Aid city.

    I agree. I fully expect Wade to fall off the cliff Iverson style.

    I'm not saying they'll beat them. I don't think they'll get swept, however.

    Going on recent history, the theoretical Pistons would probably get everyone talking match ups with a game 1 win before losing the series in 5.

    Wade is still expected to give a 12 WARP and when he can/does show up, he absolutely tears teams apart.

    He had the same problems last year, they won't any worse or better. Wade is fine, he has another year or two at minimum

    He had a great year, but he wore down by the playoffs. And playoff time is what I'm talking about...

    Edit - I think it's hilarious that Mora has become synonymous with this word...

    He delivered enough this year, and enough the year before that. I have no doubt that he will deliver what is needed again this year. I seriously doubt a 3 peat though.
