Things got bad in the D last season. So bad that the highlight of their season was when they formed a mutiny against ex-coach John Kuester. It's a good thing Kuester was there, too. Because he's just about the only person that any of the Pistons could beat. We really can't see things getting all that better this season, either. Sure, they've got Rodney Stuckey—but he's upset over his current contract. They've got Greg Monroe, too—but he's just a second-year player. And, of course they've got Brandon Knight—but he's only a rookie and, hold up, isn't he gonna beef with Stuckey over playing time? D'ah well. You guys were good for almost a decade. It's someone else's time to shine. —Chris Yuscavage
