Don't worry, I haven't signed a deal with T-mobile. I would love to work with Dwyane Wade, but I can't work with Charles Barkley. It's just wouldn't work out. I feel for D-Wade, Kenny Smith, and anyone else that has to work with the Round Mound of Rebound.
Fav 5 Pistons players (so far):
1. Tayshaun Prince -Prince has been the Pistons MVP so far, and there is no question about that. He is averaging 17.0 ppg 7.2 rpg 1.0 bpg 48.6% FG 64.3% 3pt 88.9% FT in 35.2 minutes per game so far this year. He has scored over 20 points twice now (27 against the Raptors and 23 against the Cetlics), and scored 19 twice (against the Pacers and Nets). He has only scored under 10 once so far this season (against the Wizards). He has had one double-double which came against the Nets (19 points and 11 rebounds).
He has shown that when the Pistons need him to, he can put up great numbers. In the past, he has just been their defensive specialist who can have great offensive games from time to time, but inconsistently. However this year (so far), he has maintained his defensive greatness, but is starting to become more consistent on offense. He might be having his break out year this year. Keep on eye on him.
2. Rasheed Wallace -Even though he disappointed my last game against the Celtics (because he wouldn't play in the paint and only wanted to shoot outside), he has still done very well this season. He has 12.2 ppg 8.8 rpg 2.0 bpg 1.0 spg 40.0% FG 37.0% 3pt in 34.8 minutes per game. He has had 3 double-doubles so far. His best game came against the Wizards when he had 17 points 12 rebounds and 6 blocks.
He has always been good on both sides of the ball. Since he has joined the Pistons, his numbers have declined big time. However, that doesn't mean he was any worse. He has sacrificed his good stats to become a better team player. He is showing his age a little, and that has affected him on the offensive part. He hasn't been scoring well, and is trying to score only outside most of the time. He has had problems with this in the past, but it is even worse so far this season. However, he is playing very well on defense, and is rebounding very well.
He has been doing very well in the starting role this year. He has 5.8 ppg 4.8 rpg 1.2 spg 1.0 bpg 59.3% FG in 18.7 minutes per game. He has been really great on defenses, causing lots of turnovers and rebounding well. He has gotten most of his points off of fast breaks, second chance points, and open shots (teams will leave him open thinking he can't hit the jumper). He hasn't been playing huge minutes so his numbers are nothing special, but for the time he has played they are very good. If he continues playing this well (or gets even better), he is doing exactly what the Pistons need him to.
3. Amir Johnson -
4. Walter Herrmann -He has been great coming off the bench for the Pistons. He has 6.3 ppg 3.0 rpg 50.0% FG 41.2% 3pt in 15.0 minutes. He hasn't had lots of minutes, but when he comes in he gives the Pistons good production. He plays hard on defense, rebounds well, and gets open for some shots on offense (love those flashy layups!). Considering his only played 15 min./game, I think his numbers are very good. Go Fabio!
Stuckey has pickup right where he left off last season. Coming in off the bench and playing well at the point. He has 9.2 ppg 3.3 apg 40.4% FG 84.2% FT in 21.1 minutes. He's scoring well, and distributing the ball. I would like to see him play a little better defense, but he is learning quickly and will get in soon enough. Also, he is 100% from the 3-point line. Okay, so what if he's only 1-1, it's still 100%!
5. Rodney Stuckey -
