Long time, 1st time in a long time (hello all). I need to take a minute to vent and regain my moral compass. Articles like this, make me want to throw up: Michigan's Trey Burke tops of list of players readers want drafted by Pistons It leads me to believe that the "readers" who voted have absolutely not watched the pistons struggle for the last several years with a revolving door of combo guards, and shooting guards in point guard bodies. Rodney Stuckey - In my opinion, a 3 in a 2's body that Joe has a soft spot for and thought could develop into a 1. Call him what you want. I call him a point who doesn't pass and a 2 who doesn't have a decent enough J to earn any respect. I've been calling for the Pistons to cut ties with him for years. What do we even have to gain from letting Stuckey eat into the playing time of a younger player at this point? We know what we have, and it doesn't work. Brandon Knight - A hard worker, competitive player. Undersized for the 2, and not equipped to be a full time 1, but he tries. I like the kid. But Joe needs to admit he made a mistake here and move on. I think his place is off the bench to relieve the starting 1 or 2. Will Bynum - a spark off the bench - good chemistry with Drummond - scorer 1st. Surely a lot of heart and hustle, and again a 2 in an undersized 1's body. Again, I like Bynum, but if you keep Knight as the 1st guard off the bench, where does Bynum fit in? Calderon - (the combo guard list stops here) A breath of fresh air for a few months. A true 1. Pass 1st, set up the offense. I think he's gone. He's not going to sit around at this phase of his career and wait for the team to become a contender. And frankly, with Drummond and Monroe, I think the team is better off getting a young 1 to go along with them. We don't want to be changing gears at the point in 2 or 3 years when Calderon hangs them up. So if we're rebuilding, let's rebuild from scratch. We can't call last season's record a step in the right direction. It can only be called a reason to retool. And let's start from the ground up. We have a rare thing, two genuine bigs that can ball. Monroe is smooth, and Drummond is the emotion. Let's grab another rare thing, with a tall, pass 1st playmaker. Carter-Williams is the best risk/reward in my opinion. If he never develops an NBA quality jumper, at least he is still a true point. Stuckey hasn't developed an NBA quality jumper, and he also can't run an offense... so having a playmaker wins out in my mind. I like Burke. I'm a U of M fan. But I don't want to add his name to the list above of undersized, shoot 1st combo guards that Joe D keeps parading out as the next big thing. Ok. Rant over. Please Joe, Carter-Williams.
