What the pistons lack is a superstar...like an Isaiah Thomas...or a Magic Johnson...or a Lebron James...someone who can take over a game. Great teamwork is fine but late in the game you need a closer! I think they need to make a major move...trade Rip Hamilton and/or Rasheed Wallace, some draft picks, and some bench players and go after a superstar...this team is not getting any younger...

I totally agree with you larson...
We can see the last championiship teams (the bulls, the spurs are the best example) were teams with a lot of talent of course, but with a fantastic chemestry....
Each of the players in those teams knew exactly what they had to do (with role players knowing what they can do and what they can't), and at the end of the game, jordan and duncan finished the work....
With detroit we have a team executing so well during the game at both ends of the floor, exept for the last play of the game...who's gonna shoot the ball??? chauncey? rip? sheed? and why not prince?
The result of this situation is that mentally the guys are not"ready" to take over at the end of the game...no one in this team is gonna say loudly : ok guy give me the ball and i'm gonna give you the victory"
We are full of very good players, it"s our strenght but it's our weakness too. In fact, we don't have a "chief"...
For those who knows what basketball is all about, the pistons are not flashy, but beautifull to watch...
Kobe, with his maturity, and his will to win, would fit so well with the pistons...a great defender, a clutch player, and a great scorer, and a smart guy at the offensive end.
I'm sure it would be a wonderfull story for him to come in detroit, and the fans would definetly fall in love with him....go detroit!
Congratulation joe d for the adjustement you have done this summer : great rookies, a beautifull year is about to come again!!!!!
