DBB Podcast: Detroit vs. Everybody Else, Part one

Jordan, Ben, and Jacob compare the Pistons roster to the Eastern playoff teams. This episode focuses on the backcourt.

NBA: Detroit Pistons at Orlando Magic Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

On this special episode of the Detroit Bad Boys podcast, Jordan Bellant and Ben Gulker are joined by Jacob Kuyvenhoven. The trio tackle the idea of comparing the Pistons roster to every playoff team's roster in the East.

Starting with the point guard spot, it pits Reggie Jackson against the other point guards in the East. The top four (Isaiah Thomas, Kyrie Irving, John Wall, and Kyle Lowry) make for a quick conversation, but also lead to inspecting the merits of Isaiah's career year and how to properly rank the PGs in the East.

From there, it moves onto the teams ranked fifth through ninth in the Eastern Conference Standings. With questions like: Is Dennis Schroder good? Is Malcolm Brogdon your Rookie of the Year? And which version of Rondo do you use to compare?

After point guard, it's time to talk KCP and the shooting guards. While Kentavious heads for an important summer, where does he really rank amongst two-guards in the East? Below DeMar and Bradley, but who else?

Is he better than a two-way player like Avery Bradley? What about the cast of one-way players like J.R. Smith and Dion Waiters?
