Over the first few games, the complexion of the Pistons has obviously changed dramatically from LB's tenure. Flip is exploiting the break potential created by the D. The pace has quickened substantially. However, you can't be aggressive at both ends without fatigue setting in. Tho the P's may have the talent, pretty hard IMO, for a team to transition from D-first/halfcourt-O to a lot of run-and-gun. I'm glad Flip has given the bench minutes in pre-season because he's going to need those guys over the course of the season, given his apparent philosophy. I am still trying to figure out how this season will work out for the P's. We have a whole new animal here.
