Michael Rosenberg: Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva determined to improve | freep.com | Detroit Free Press Better picture of CV here. Here's the thing: I'm a big JJ fan, and I'd love to see Daye and Summers win more PT, and Monroe is a key to the team's future. But CV has the potential to be a great (not merely decent or good, but flat out great) NBA power forward. Since it's pretty obvious that he's in great shape for the first time in his career, and given that he worked with Arnie the way he did - I'm thinking about how he's worked on his running stride and explosion ability - I've got some very high hopes for him. But - I'm really in holding my breath mode regarding him. Can a guy change his stripes that fast? Really? Until Monroe takes over as our starting center - and yeah, we really need him to be a center since nobody else on our roster can handle that position - the team is a lot better balanced IF and only IF CV is the guy who teams with Ben Wallace. JJ off the bench with super scorers like McGrady and Ben Gordon and Bynum and and Daye and Monroe could be ideal.
