Pistons Open Practice Box Score and Thoughts

After reading through some other observations on the practice and realizing nobody made a Box Score. I went back and watched the game again marking down everything that happened, here is the box score. (I apologize for not keeping track of minutes but I had already spent over an hour taking stats and didn't want to do it again just for minutes.)

Notes:

1. Greg Monroe controlled the game, according to my amateur stat keeping he didn't miss a shot. He set up Singler and Smith for easy shots. The only downside was that he got the ball poked loose a couple times for turnovers. He also controlled the glass outrebounding his team.

2. Peyton Siva had a minor leg injury and didn't play.

3. Brandon Jennings was very aggressive getting to the line all game, he had a few good passes too. But Jennings dribbled around way too much and forced some passes.

4. Stuckey played lazy like a guy who wants to ride the bench.

5. Mitchell, Harrelson, and Charlie V. rarely played and rarely made any impact.

6. Gigi was solid on defense, attacked the offensive glass and hit a 3, it was a very solid showing in his short playing time.

7. Will Bynum is the best point guard on the team, he was setting up his teammates and getting to the rim. I'm not saying he should start, but then again he probably should.

8. Billups is slow but is smart, plays hard, and does the little things still. With his deep range he should still get plenty of minutes.

9. Drummond still struggles to get his own offense but he looks good.

9.5 (Because I only wanted to do 10) Jonas was good in the pick and pop with Jennings, and was extremely active. (and has great hair). Is he the primary backup big who stretches the floor?

10. KCP! He looked good and was active all over the court. He definitely is the starting off guard in my mind.

Mo Cheeks was in control unlike Little Lawrence Frank. The aggressiveness and athleticism is something that stood out that hasn't been seen in years. Josh Smith, Brandon Jennings, Luigi Datome, and KCP showed flashes of what they will contribute to this team. The team is deep, 3 point guards who can play, 4 different guys who can share the off guard spot, 3 elite big men with some decent stretchy bigs backing them up. Most important of all is that this team has talent, this team is arguably as talented as the 2004 team. Obviously we don't have Ben Wallace anchoring the paint or long lanky Tayshaun Prince locking people up on the perimeter, but this team is just as athletic as that team and much more skilled offensively. To me this is a team with a very bright future and a team that can make the playoffs this season.
