It is extremely early from several standpoints but I did see this mentioned on one of the forums last week. What do we do if Tayshaun does not stay with the Pistons? We could also think about this if Taysh was injured for a long period. The person who mentioned it was talking about the new front line being Ben, Sheed and Darko. People have talked about all three being able to play some at the 3. My wondering centers around which one would play the 3 best, and which one would cause fewer problems to the team in the way of lost production compared to the figures he would produce at the position he is at, now. I am thinking of Ben switching to the 3, Sheed playing the 4, and Darko at the 5. I think that would be the best combination if the decision was made to play those three. My question is whether or not we would lose much of Ben's effectiveness if he was to play the 3 instead of the 5. Would he lose or gain in scoring; whould he lose or gain in boards; would he lose or gain in blocks? In thinking about it, I believe that he would be even more effective as a 3; there should be no 3 in the league that is much quicker and those tough guys like Artest, Ben could handle more easily than Taysh. Sheed would handle the 4 well, and I think they are figuring Darko for the 5 anyway. I really want Tayshaun to stay, but if he decides to take someone else's offer or is injured for a long period of time, what do you all think? Would Ben be a good choice for the 3 ?
