After a (too) long hiatus, the Detroit Bad Boys podcast is back! In this episode, Ben (brgulker) and Steve (Shinons*) discuss a long list of topics:

What does it mean to be a Pistons fan after more than half a decade of losing? How long can and should the fanbase support a franchise that seems to lack a clear direction for improvement? We're losing patience, not because the team is losing, but because the team hasn't put together a coherent plan to stop the losing over the long term.

Should the Pistons embrace the losing and hope for a good lottery pick? Or, should the Pistons make some rotation and strategy changes in order to make a playoff run? Shockingly, they're not that far from competing for a playoff berth.

After a rough start, Andre Drummond seems to be coming alive. What has caused the more Penguin-y play of late?

Rajon Rondo was traded to the Mavs – what does that tell the Pistons about Greg Monroe's trade value?

And what about Jonas Jerebko? Stan Van Gundy said he's going to start playing him more minutes. We likey.
