"You guys will be hearing me a lot more, telling people where to go and stuff like that," he said. "It's going to be a little bit different next year. I just got to be that guy. It's going to happen, and you guys will see.
It seems like Stuckey is trying to be the leader, which I hope he can be one day, but I don't think he can become the true leader when he has veteran champion teammates such as Tayshaun Prince or Richard Hamilton. I think Stuckey has too much respect for those guys to feel like he can command them on the court. And if Prince is in the Pistons long term plans (3 years ahead), how do you think he feels when the team looks to a junior player to lead the team instead of him -- a champion, all-defense, and potential all-star.
It's great that Stuckey is being brought up to become a leader, and has guys to look up to like Prince, Rip, and Ben Wallace, but can he really do it? I'm not saying it can't be done, because just look at Rajon Rondo -- he has superstars on his team. What do you all think?
