Joe Dumars: "Everybody’s in play"

New, comments

Highlights from today's presser from Keith Langlois' blog:

* Dumars saying significant change was his desire and that "everybody’s in play. There are no sacred cows here."

* Dumars saying the last 10 minutes of Game 6, when the Pistons squandered a 10-point lead and lost going away, was "a microcosm of the last three years."

* Dumars saying that as he walked out of The Palace after that game, he felt a "sense of calm. I’ve seen enough."

* Dumars saying "this team became way too content and did not show up with a sense of urgency to get it done."

Honestly, this is exactly what fans should want to hear. Stay tuned.

Update: Also, I should note, Michael Curry was not named the coach, but it shouldn't take long for us to find out if he really is the leading contender. From the AP:

"This will not be a long, drawn-out process," Dumars said about a replacement for Saunders. "The next coach is going to be handed a good team. You worry more when you don't have the players to compete at the level you need them to."

And my favorite quote:

"The idea you can make yourself bad and make yourself good again, that's a farce," he said. "I have no interest in completely ripping the team down. Will I look to making significant changes? Yeah, you're damn right I will."
