NBA: Detroit Pistons at Washington Wizards Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Pistons are once again above .500 and gifted Dwane Casey a W in his return to Toronto. The rotation seems to be settling in and Stanley Johnson has been a key contributor as the Pistons have won three out of our last four contests. The stats don’t lie, and we take a deeper dive into how Stanley’s game has improved as a member of the bench mob. We also analyze Andre’s potential path to offensive dominance (note: it’s not behind the 3-point line).

There has been chatter around a trade that would bring John Wall to Detroit (not legitimately sourced but hypotheticals are fun!). The contract is an albatross, but we put our rose colored glasses on and take a look at how this might make actually make sense.

We also do a quick pulse check on the Eastern Conference to see how things are shaping up and what the playoff implications might be.

All that and more in this week’s episode!
