Playoff Team??


With the 2015-16 NBA season about to start, the question is “will the Pistons make the playoffs”?  The initial reaction would be Jim Mora-like “PLAYOFFS”? The team has had seven straight losing seasons and they said good-bye to their lone skilled player in the post in Greg Monroe. This years’ edition of the Pistons has a lot of jump shooters and will be built around the pick and roll moves of center Andre Drummond and guard Reggie Jackson. It will be interesting to see if Drummond has expanded his game around the post. If so, then things will be easier for the jump shooters brought in such as Ersan Illyasova, Marcus Morris and Aron Baynes. Rookie Stanley Johnson looks like a “player” and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope looks to be improved, so I guess there is hope. Let’s hope they don’t start the season 5-23 like last year.
