In my opinion, and I think there are plenty of DBB'ers who share this view, Tracy McGrady has become the most complete Piston player. What I originally thought was a very short-sighted signing has become one of the best bargains in the league, and the only thing that appears to be wrong with the contract is that it's not a three-year deal instead of a one-year, veteran's minimum deal.
TMac's success here, combined with a variety of other factors -- his one-year contract, Stuckey's expiring contract, the glut of perimeter players -- raises the obvious question: What should the Pistons do with TMac?TMac has become the next in a series of players to revive his career in Detroit after significant injuries. As Kriz pointed out in the comments a couple days ago, it's a joy to watch those stories unfold -- it's undoubtedly one of the few brights spots of the past two seasons. Credit to Dumars for seeing value where others didn't.
*cough* Sorry, just choking down the crow.
Obviously, most teams start their best player and rearrange the rotation to complement and feature him. But for all the reasons we've discussed here -- the uncertainty of the team's as well as TMac's future, Daye's development, what type of PG the Pistons need, trade speculation, etc. -- I'm at a bit of a loss to find an answer to the question. Given there's not a lot else to talk about after yet another loss to the fracking Jazz, I thought it might spur some interesting conversation.
What says DBB?
