AUBURN HILLS, MI - MARCH 23: LeBron James #6 of the Miami Heat gets in for a dunk between Tayshaun Prince #22 and Chris Wilcox #9 of the Detroit Pistons at The Palace of Auburn Hills on March 23, 2011 in Auburn Hills, Michigan.

This move demonstrated Joe Dumars' commitment to keeping intact a roster that won 30 games last year. If the Pistons can win 30 games this year, they'll be 30-32, which should be good for ninth in the Eastern Conference. Do not examine the logic of what I just wrote.
Let's all just take a deep breath and be glad Tayshaun Prince can retire as a Piston. That, moreso than, say, wins, is what really matters. Some players have a hard time locking down a big payday when they are 34 years old. This signing is a strong stand against the agism that too often plagues championship teams.
And I think we're all looking forward to Prince-to-Singler for the next four years. I know I am.
Fortunately, Prince doesn't have back problems. Everything is unicorns.
