Ok, we are about half way through the season and I wanna get my thoughts of our Pistons up untill today.
Chauncey Billups - Chauncey has been having a great season and he STILL is one of the elite PG's in the NBA.
Richard RIP Hamilton - Career year!! avging 18.5 points while SHOOTING FIFTY%. I think RIP is one of the most underrated players in the league. He is extremely consistant and he plays VERY good defense. I think he is underrated because he is not a traditonal SG. He doesnt dunk or slash or dribble well BUT he can knock down that jumper alll dayyy longgg.
Tayshaun Prince - A lot of people are upset with his inconsistancy and his lack of "killer instinct". I know he has had an inconsistant year but I know he will be alright. He IS our X-Factor and I know he will be BIG for us in the playoffs.
Antonio McDyess - He's been OK but I would rather have someone else (not on our team) starting at PF. I think Dyess was more valuable to us coming off the bench.
Sheeeeed - Sheed has had a great first half. His numbers dont prove that but he is our most versatile player. I like that he was givin the nod to play in the all star game (BY DAVID STERN haha). I would like to see Sheed in the post more where I think he plays the best. Those 3's are good but I think he is almost impossible to stop in the post.
Jason Maxiell - He's been inconsistant but he is still a SOLID PF coming off the bench. He lights a fire under the benchs @ss. If this guy was a little taller he would be one of the best PF's in the league (in a couple years).
Rodney Stuckey - He still needs a couple years to develop but he does show a lot of potential. I like that he can drive to the rim and score(a little sloppy now). I think he will be an awsome player once he becomes a little more careful with the ball. Right now he is making bad passes and stupid TO's but it all looks like rookie mistakes.
Aaron Afflalo - (my fav reserve) AA looks like a stud. He is always hustling and making the right moves. RIGHT NOW I think he is our best rook. AA plays with a lot of confidence and plays very good defense. He is an example of DEETROIT BASKETBALL(hustle,defense, and confidence).
Amir Johnson - I have a thread about Amir on the Pistons page. I thnk he will need a couple more years to develop his game. He looks lost out there right now. Bad TO's and not being able to handle the ball will get u a nice warm seat on the bench.
