The Pistons vs. The Bobcats

The 22-30 #Pistons will host the 23-30 Charlotte Bobcats at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Detroit is within a half-game of the Bobcats for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference when they take the court on Tuesday night in their first game of a home-and-home with the Bobcats.

The good: Andre Drummond’s spectacular performance in Friday night’s Rising Star game. Drummond is playing some very good basketball of late scoring in double figures in a career-high eight straight games, averaging 15.8 points and 15.0 rebounds while shooting 67.1 percent from the field.
The bad: Despite the Pistons play of late their loss to the Cavaliers was a little disheartening.
The unknown: Will the Pistons make a move before the trade deadline? Some say that Monroe and Stuckey deals seem very plausible.
Injuries: Pistons: Josh Harrellson (knee) out.
Bobcats: Brendan Haywood and Jeffery Taylor out.

    can’t blame mo cheeks anymore. Like Charles said, Andre Drummond and a bunch of idiots.

    We don’t deserve a playoff spot if we can’t beat the Bobcats.

    Tycoon, dude, we’ve already dropped two to the ‘Cats. So even if we win tomorrow, we lost the season series. It’s over and done with. Furthermore, I don’t care how many dusty banners this BS team has hanging in the rafters; the Bobcats are just plain the better team. Like, much better. I’m not sure why they aren’t further ahead in the standings. It’s not even close. The Pistons are terrible. A very, very special kind of terrible. Every wrong piece you can imagine has found its way onto the roster thanks to Joey D. This game, and hopefully tomorrow night’s game, should be a shining beacon of truth about where this team stands and what it needs to do.

    The Bobcats are clearly quite a bit better than us, yet they’re still well below .500 and happen to be on pace to collect our first round pick in addition to theirs. The longer we remain in denial, stand pat like everything is just going to work out for us because GO PISTONS, the worse the future is going to get. And right now, all the Andre Drummonds in the world aren’t enough to overshadow how bad the team is and how close this organization is to going ALL-IN on a plan to completely sabotage his future along with ours. I’ll give you a hint: It’s going to happen on Thursday at noon if they don’t make some significant trades.

    I really don’t want to see Joe Dumars trade away Greg Monroe for JR Smith.

    Be pretty happy to end up trading only Stuckey after this trade deadline.

    so many horrible scenarios I can imagine that can happen if we trade greg monroe

    really want to hear nat’s take on this I know she hasn’t weighed in yet, who is the future of this team, josh smith or greg monroe.

  5. otisdm says:

    edt, I won’t be watching this team anymore assuming they’re standing pat at the deadline, but I’ll say this once more: Josh Smith is under contract. Greg Monroe isn’t. It’s not an issue of who is better. Josh Smith is the future simply by virtue of being under contract through 2017. Meaning it’s highly likely he’s here for at least another two years. The team was terrible before he got here, and they’re not going to get anything of value for him anytime soon. So making a commitment to Monroe means virtually guaranteeing that this team stays exactly this bad for at least two more years. By that point, do you think Monroe would even want to stick around? We don’t even know if he and Drummond can play together. Almost two years of evidence has consistently supported the theory that they can’t. There’s just too much that can go wrong by extending Monroe, and I do not see the upside. You’ll see what I’m talking about, even if it takes you a few years. God bless.
