Disclaimer: I don't know anything about basketball. I'm just taking stuff from the interwebs and faking it. If you have a problem with my analysis, let me know and I'll add more pictures. The SlippyReport: Dubious sports writing with lots of pictures to make it more palatable. Entrentched as we are at the number six spot, its time we look at draft options and how they fit with the team. Pay no mind that our position could change redically or that guys will rise and fall as the college season progresses. Anyway, lets get on with it. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist When we were stinking up the Palace we could entertain Anthony Davis/ Andre Drummond man fantasies. Well guess what, we give it 100% every game even if the results is 3 quarters worth of basketball and now we've climbed two gigantic spots away from the bottom. Who could be available here? That's right MKG. Swishscout.com has a very good write up here: http://swishscout.com/?page_id=710 What's to like? Comparisons to Gerald Wallace. Imagine pairing 'new crash' with super collider. We'll shoot 2x the opponents free throws every night and almost as many as Dwayne Wade! All draft pundits agree that he's got the work ethic, the athleticism and defensive prowress. This screams Detroit basketball to me more than Austin Daye's repetative highlight video. He's also got that attitude to put in the work and win. We need to surround Knight and Monroe with that. Already the influence is being felt. We need more. What's not? We really need a PF/C to provide interior defense and shot blocking. Wallace is not coming back and while a shell of his old self, he's been making plays on the defensive end. Maxiell has stepped up but is only filler. The team shoots under 40% and has only one 3pt threat. We need shooting ability at the wing and shooting is MKG's chink in the armor so to speak. Still, shooting mechanics are easier to teach than work ethic and all prospects are expected to improve even is some don't. The bottom line: The pistons are bereft of talent and even an overload of SFs shouldn't deter Dumars from selecting this guy at number 6.
