AUBURN HILLS, MICH. -- Before the opening tip on Friday, Detroit Pistons players Tayshaun Prince and Richard Hamilton walked downcourt and embraced Flip Saunders, their former coach. Perhaps for a fleeting moment, Saunders had flashbacks of better days, when he was leading a powerhouse team, including Prince and Hamilton, to three consecutive trips to the Eastern Conference finals.
The time apart hasn't been good for Saunders or his former players, as all of them are with teams mired among the dregs of the league and headed for the NBA draft lottery. But if the Pistons can take anything from this season, it's that they never lost to Saunders and the Wizards.
