PISTONS: The East’s 3 Ms While I agree with Keith's assertion that Toronto is on the right track, I don't get the subtle Zeke bashing or neglect to mention that tremendous position Orlando is in to sign a big name free agent, and retain Nelson, Howard and Milicic. In the NBA, you have to understand salaries and the business climate if you want to truly assess the direction of a franchise. A capped out genius GM cannot accomplish much and a bad team with cap room and youth (Atlanta) can make dramatic strides. And the Pistons get a little too much love in my opinion. Since the Rasheed trade, we haven't done ourselves any favours losing Mike James, Mehmet Okur, Darko Milicic, Corliss Williamson, Ben Wallace and returning Nazr Mohammed, Antonio McDyess and Ronald Murray.
