As a team, the Pistons have clearly blown away everyone's expectations. Individually, Chauncey Billups has played like an MVP, Rip Hamilton is averaging a career-high 21.6 points per game and Rasheed Wallace may end up being a reluctant All-Star starter. But how would you grade the rest of the team?
The guys over at PistonsForum took an in-depth at each and every member of the team, grading their performance thus far. Considering the team is 37-5, you're not going to find many bad grades, aside from the obligatory (and well-deserved) potshots at Darko. But there's some good insight and observations -- kind of like listening into five hard-core fans talking at a bar.
