An interesting tangential perspective on the mess of the Pistons, if for no other reason than that the idea of the Pistons being a mess is seeping into the public consciousness. However, I don't really agree with him. Dumars began unraveling the franchise when he traded Chauncey for AI, then hid behind "ownership transition" for 2 years after Mr. Davidson passed. Now it's the owner's fault again? The writer calls for Joe D's resignation, too, but from where I'm sitting, Gores' biggest mistake is trusting Joe D to begin with. Time to clean house and install someone who understands today's NBA. Also: TREY BURKE Warning.
