That's a safe bet. One of them will eliminate the other. This one has really bothered me. I remember last season on a national broadcast, they did a halftime segment with Joe D, talking about the character of the Pistons and how he wants guys with hunger, guys who bring it everyday. He's made many statements to this effect. Which brings me to this year's squad. I honestly do not know (after a poor night's sleep) if it is effort or ability. Have these guys run out of gas? Or are they full of hot air? All I know, is that when the games gets frenetic, with high energy hustle plays, we are usually not the guys doing it. And that worries me. We better believe the East has one or two more significant trades coming. Signing Webber at the cost of basically accomplishing nothing in FA last summer will not be enough to make up the difference in talent, desire or athleticism.
