This team is at a crisis point (and the win over Phoenix--as I pointed out in that post--did not give much confidence). The season is teetering...and has been for a few weeks now. Every team seems to be better prepared than the Pistons. Most teams are improving. The Pistons are not improving. Andre's play has flattened out for the time being. He needs to develop "on the ball" defense as many, after Howard, are taking him inside. Monroe's play is flat--he continues to get blocked at the rim far too much. Monroe's play is not producing enough wins... Jennings appears to play more at the level of a first guard off the bench player and a part time shooting guard which means the point guard position is still unsettled. Play well or not, Jennings has not been able to lead the Pistons to a better record. Stuckey played well and has had a good season when healthy but Stuckey's good season has not prevented the Pistons from being 7 games under .500. The coaching has not been able to overcome roster flaws and there seems to be no relief in sight. You just don't get the feeling that this team can win 8 out of ten or 15 out of 20 and make this a season. The Pistons have assets: Monroe, Stuckey, CV contract, etc. and the question is when, not so much if, these will be put in motion.
