[Kemba] Walker, to this point, is a question mark as a classic distributor at the NBA level, and he doesn't have the size or shoot nearly well enough to play the "2." For the money he’s gonna cost the best move would be to trade him now.

Rodney Stuckey shouldn't chance a return this season

Jamie Samuelsen writes for the Detroit Free Press that Stuckey should take the rest of the year off. His basic argument is that Stuckey has relatively little to gain by playing the last month, and theoretically everything to lose. I disagree.I like Stuckey a lot, and I wish him only the best, but I have to disagree with a couple of points in the article. There is DEFINITELY something to play for this year other than pride, as far a Stuckey is concerned. He is a young player who is still developing his game. If you take him off the court, his game can not continue to grow. He does still have doubters who don't think he can or should play PG for the Pistons. He cannot possibly prove them wrong sitting on the bench. Plus, he still needs to develop chemistry with two of the Piston's long term new guys: CV31 and Gordon. I'm not suggesting Stuckey play if there is any HINT that his long term health might be in question. However, if the TEAM doctors (not some random Dr. Nick off the street) clear him, then I expect they've done every test imaginable and can't determine that anything is wrong, long-term. Lots of things can lead to fainting; low blood-sugar, or dehydration for example. These would not be life threatening.

It’s rare to see Tony Parker and Pop yelling at each other but that took place early in the second quarter against the Pistons. Here was the scenario: Parker didn’t close all the way out on Rodney Stuckey when Stuckey was in the corner behind the three-point line. Instead, Parker closed out to within about five feet to protect against the drive. Stuckey proceeded to rise up and knock down the three-pointer after a slight hesitation. Pop, as is usually the case when an opposing player gets an open three-pointer, wasn’t too happy. On the next stoppage, he yelled at Parker for not closing out. He then took Parker out of the game and the two exchanged more heated words. Why was Parker angry? He felt he was following the scouting report. Coming into the game, Stuckey was 14.7% on three-pointers. Even worse than that, he had missed his last ten from downtown and was just one for his last 19.

Can the Pistons still make the playoffs?
