    Haha... I like the way you think TaS. Would the league even allow for that many assistant coaches on one team? I honestly don't know. lol

    When there is a timeout, I don't want to see Curry yelling at Kwame for forgetting what day it is, I want to see Laimbeer getting in his face for not fouling his man harder.

    I agree with you original suggestion of hiring Zeke to come home and work with Stuckey

    As far as the second comment about multiple coaches, they can be consultants without being coaches.. Kareem works with Andrew Bynum without being on the coaching payroll. . Laimbeer is still a Piston blue and blue, but still might tell Joe head coach or nothing.

    We can use Bob Lanier to work with Kwame and John Long can work with Afflolo if Joe thinks he's too good to stoop down to this....

    Most of these guys are still hanging around the Detroit area and would help with a one time mini consulting fee of $100K or so:smoke06:

    Well, I think that Bynum appreciates his current position with the Pistons more than Stuckey does. He had to work harder for it. Stuckey was a 1st round draft pick. Bynum was undrafted and he had to work his way into an NBA team.

    Blame the extended slump on Curry. Also blame it on poor veteran leadership on the team.

    I mention this possibility quite some time ago, but I associated this with a formalized commitment by the Piston Organization. What I meant by this is a concentrated effort to hire an entirely new learning team composed of former NBA players (?) that follow some basic walk-sets on current patterns currently being development around the league. This usually will concentrate on offensive templates, with some insights on what makes them work and how they might be counteracted. Most of the learning modes, as can be taught, are not from head coaches, but talented assistants. You would have to have a time frame of at least 45-60 days, with two practices a day.

    That's damn good.

    It wraps up perceptions: about leadership, maturity, and a mountain top that has long been a feeding frenzy toward his hungry ear.

    I think that both Stuckey and Bynum will improve this summer, with Stuckey having greater potential. Once he figures out how to go left, he should be a real force.

    He can go left as this video proves. He just needs to mix it in more often. When he does go left, he seems to pull up for the mid-range jumper more often than getting all the way to the rack. His ball handling with the left hand needs more work IMO.

    When Stuck has the ball up top, EVERYBODY in the entire gym knows where he's going with it. The day he crosses over and goes left is the day expands his offensive repertoire by 50%.

    He needs to be as unpredictable as Mike Curry's starting linups.

    He should end the "going right experiment."
