Wow, national media taking dumps on the pistons. More of the same here, if you want some quotes: A perimeter-oriented team didn't do much to help itself up front. But draftee Greg Monroe looked good to the experts this summer, so that's something. And it's not like he'll get lost in the depth up front for the Pistons. Kuester has a tough job, making believers not only of the fans but of the fellows on this roster. Detroit is three drafts and offseasons away from being taken seriously. If it gets there. and my favorite: Things are worse in Pistons land than people wanted to let on. The franchise that was supposed to be kept in the Davidson family went on the shopping block, and the B- or C-level signings of Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva before the 2009-10 season took the Pistons out of this summer's shopping spree.
