RealGM: Basketball Wiretap Archives: Pistons' Stuckey Named Player Of The Week
finally some well- deserved recognition. Only problem is that he really showed that we have one guard too many.
Nice problem to have though. Great news with this. Its been a long time since a Piston was named to that.
Stuckey is going to be such a beast in the rookie vs sophomore game. Stuckey better start as the PG!
and this is basically his rookie season. With the limited play he got last year due to his injury. Really impressive, and nice move by Joe D to move CB and get Stuckeys young hungry hand at the controls.
Oh, what might have been if Joe would have done the same thing with Will Blalock a couple of years ago... ...heavy sigh.
I don't blame Joe totally for the mishandling of Blalock. After Will made the shot, he let it go to his head..making the rounds of Letterman, Leno, The View etc
Stuckey played 57 games last year, averaging 19 minutes per game. Plus, he played another 17 playoff games, averaging over 22 minutes per game. He was NBA All-Rookie 2nd Team. That constitutes quite a rookie season to me.
It would nice to see him get named EC Player of the Week. He deserves it.
