It's amazing that Lindsey Hunter has been such an important gear on the Pistons wheel over the last three seasons. Especially considering all the heat and grief that was dropped on him when he left the team back in 00/01 and pulled on that Bucks jersey. Left for dead by many in Detroit as shooter who couldn't control his dribble, a guy who under pressure seemed to pass the ball out'a bounds more than to the right open teammate. We're talikng about a guy whose highest fg% in his first 7 seasons with Detroit was .435. But in todays game, his game, is all intensity - all ball hawking - all Mr. D. And man-oh-man has that made the difference in the games that mattered. Two years ago the tandem of him and Mike James on the floor together was like watching someone suddenly push the defensive turbo button. Plus James could drop the long rock. Well, Hunter isn't getting any younger and the odds are strong he's retiring after this season. That other half of the turbo tandem is going to be a free agent. Mike James is again up for grabs. I for one would love to see Joe D. try to get this guy back in the red white and blue jersey. His energy, ballhandling, game smarts and shot will be in need in motown should Hunter take an office position. He's a younger, stronger Hunter with a better shot. The Pistons don't have a ton to work with this off-season. But they likely could snatch this guy if they really wanted to and I think it would be a solid if not spectacular move.
