Ah, now that's more like it, Detroit! After winning a handful of games and nearly pulling yourself out of the basement in the Central Division, you lost to Cleveland and Toronto last week. Cleveland...and Toronto. Yeah, it's been one of those years. That said, it's clear you're trying hard, and Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight look like they could be the foundation of your team for the next decade or so. So it's not all bad news—even if it might seem like it right now.—Chris Yuscavage
