Yes, the Pistons are starting to show something. Rip will be one of my most favorite players forever and he seems to be widening his talent range even more. Sheed looked really into it and I hope he keeps that attitude. Maybe the 'Sheed Rule' will wind up helping him, if it makes him concentrate more on his game, rather than the histrionics. He can be a very devastating player when he is really into it. CB looked quite good, too, and it is good to have a point who is really into getting everyone involved. Not many teams have that. Things are looking up; now if Laimbeer was coaching. Oh, well. Can't have everything. Maybe the assistants will flavor the game plans a little.
