The Pistons entered this season with the ‘rebuild, but still compete’ mentality., and they’re doing just that. With the second-to-worst record in the association, they’re still competitive in most of their games, and a lot of that has to do with the free agent signing of Jerami Grant, who many mocked when Troy Weaver and da ‘Stawns brought him onboard. Not sure how many people are still laughing now but he’s averaging 23.5 ppg this year and has been a complete difference maker:
The person who most likely took his place was probably Nikola Vucevic, who has had a great season himself. Either way who cares about the All-Star game. I’ll watch it because I love the NBA, but it has been a complete joke ever since they let the fans vote and players like Yao Ming & Kobe would get selected when they were injured and didn’t even play. Whatever, shout out to Jerami for balling and for the ‘Stawns front office for doing the perfect tank job that will hopefully get us at least a top-5 pick in one of the most loaded NBA Drafts in recent history.
