DETROIT PISTONS BASKETBALL – TIME TO BLOW IT UP

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE BEEN ONE OF THOSE TEAMS THAT HAVE HOVERING AROUND MEDIOCRITY FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW.

IF THEY MAKE THE PLAYOFFS THEY ARE USUALLY AN EASY OUT FOR THE TOP TEAMS TO KNOCK OFF IN THE FIRST ROUND. IN THE OTHER SCENARIO, IF THEY MISS THE PLAYOFFS THEY USUALLY FINISH AROUND 9 THROUGH 12. AND THAT IS RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF NOT TO GOOD BUT GOOD ENOUGH TO GET A TOP DRAFT PICK!

PLAYERS TO TRADE:

*TEAMS WOULD WANT HIM INCLUDED FOR A TRADE PACKAGE.

BLAKE GRIFFIN:

AGE – 30

REGGIE JACKSON

AGE – 29

MARKIEFF MORRIS

AGE – 30

DERRICK ROSE

AGE – 31

*LUKE KENNARD

AGE – 26

*LANGSTON GALLOWAY

1 CHEST PIECE TO KEEP:

I WOULD KEEP ANDRE DRUMMOND. HE HAS A LOT OF VALUE AND HE IS 26. ANDRE DRUMMOND CAN STILL IMPROVE VASTLY. I THINK IT IS TIME TO GIVE HIM THIS TEAM SO HE CAN RUN WITH THESE YOUNG PLAYERS!

WHAT TO WANT BACK:

DRAFT PICKS & EXPIRING CONTRACTS. THAT CAN BE DONE THIS YEAR!

YOUNG ASSETS:

THE DETROIT PISTONS HAVE A LOT OF YOUNG TALENT. GIVE THEM MORE MINUTES AND SEE WHAT YALL GOT FOR THE FUTURE.

MY THOUGHTS:

NOT VERY IMPRESSED BY BOTH PLAYERS LOW SHOOTING WOOS BUT THEY HAD THE BALL IN THEIR HANDS 90% OF THE TIME. DUE TO THEIR HIGH VOLUME OF SHOOTING I WOULD RATE THEIR PERFORMANCES AS A B-.

TRAE YOUNG HAD THE BETTER GAME BUT JAMES HARDEN LEFT WITH THE WIN. 🤷🏾‍♂️

BY THE WAY IF YOU GUESSED IT , NOT MUCH DEFENSIVE WAS PLAYED IN THIS GAME.

AFTER THIS GAME THIS WILL BECOME A NEW STATISTIC. I BELIEVE PLAYERS WILL WANT TO TOP THIS PERFORMANCE!

THE MASTER OF DRAWING CALLS

OLD HEADS CLOSING GAMES (1-7-20)

Carmelo Anthony – 17TH season

Chris Paul- 15TH season

Derrick Rose- 12TH season

These three players brought it back a decade! Showing flashes of their greatness in the 4th. Where the game really matters. To show once again that you can they have value.

Each player had a huge impact in the fourth quarter.

Derrick Rose & Carmelo Anthony hit game winners!

Chris Paul scoring 20 points in the 4th to lead his team to victory!

Which player will win a title first?

GIANNIS SNATCHED THE CROWN (12-19-19)

NIKOLA JOKIC VS ATLANTA HAWKS (1-6-20)

NOW THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR ALL SEASON FROM JOKIC!

HE DROPPED A CAREER HIGH VS THE ATLANTA HAWKS. LIKE HE HAD SOME PERSONAL VENDETTA AGAINST THEM. I MEAN THEY WERE LOW KEY DISRESPECTFUL TO NIKOLA JOKIC SHOOTING ABILITY. THEY TREATED HIM LIKE HE WAS BEN SIMMONS LOL!

THE ATLANTA HAWKS HAD NO ONE THAT COULD HOLD NIKOLA JOKIC ONE ON ONE AS HE PUNISHED THEM IN THE POST.

THE JOKER WAS A BULLY ALL NIGHT LONG. HE FEASTED IN THE PAINT LIKE IT WAS THANKSGIVING. THE ATLANTA HAWKS WERE CLEARLY NOT EXPECTING JOKIC TO BE AGGRESSIVE ALL THROUGHOUT THE GAME.

MY HOPES:

I HOPE THIS GAME WAS A TURNING POINT FOR NIKOLA JOKIC THIS SEASON.

“THE JOKER’S MINDSET”

“I AM THE BEST BIG MAN IN THE LEAGUE AND I WILL LEAD MY TEAM FURTHER THAN I DID LAST YEAR.”

GAME SCORE:

DENVER NUGGETS – 123

(25-11)

ATLANTA HAWKS – 115
