2008-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)From your answers regarding Saunders, it seems like you're among those that think of the Pistons as having underachieved. Am I crazy for thinking a team that has come out of an up-phase with a championship, another finals appearance and at least 2 series victories 5 or 6 times in a row should be considered as having done quite well?
(costa24 from Montreal)
If we look strictly at the post-Larry Brown era, we're talking about three years of two series victories apiece. Certainly that's not underachieving, and I usually tend to argue that we underrate how difficult it is to achieve consistent success like that. However, two of the three losses have come to lower-seeded teams without home-court advantage, and how the Pistons have lost (blowing a fourth-quarter lead last Friday, for example) has often been the issue more than that they've lost. So underachieved might be unfair, but are there things they could tweak to do better? I think potentially so. (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
2008-04-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Am I crazy to bring in a 67-year-old coach who hasn't stayed in one place for more than a few years ever in his career to coach my team?
(Michael Jordan from Charlotte)
A little, but I think people may be putting too much weight on Larry Brown's last coaching job. The Knicks were way too big of a mess for one man to fix, and Brown only got (and could only stomach) one season on the job.

The parts are in place for the Bobcats to be competitive in the East -- how much better are, say, the Hawks on paper? And Brown should certainly be a major upgrade from an overmatched Sam Vincent. The key for Charlotte is for Jordan to retain control on the player personnel moves so Brown doesn't trade Raymond Felton for Derrick McKey or Mark Jackson or someone. (All kidding aside, they do face a key decision on Felton, who's been OK but hardly spectacular as the starter at the point.) It's early, but I can see the Bobcats making the playoffs next season. (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
2008-04-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does Philly's success show that just maybe a 30 ppg scorer who shoots 40% from the field with 4+ TO/g doesn't help his team that much, no matter how talented he is?
(HeeSeop from Chicago)
It shows that defense matters. It's not like the Sixers have gotten better on offense. They were 13th in Offensive Rating in 2005-06, Iverson's last full year, dropped to 26th last year and improved slightly to 19th this year. Their Defensive Rating, meanwhile, has improved steadily from 24th to 15th to 11th this year -- and better than that in the second half of the season.

Philly had plenty of success with Iverson when they surrounded him with defensive-minded players, but they got away from that after Larry Brown's departure and that led to their downfall. Now the defense is very good again, and that's got only a limited amount to do with swapping Miller for Iverson.

The best thing trading Iverson did was force the Sixers to commit to their young guys and stop messing around with the Kevin Ollies of the world. (Kevin Pelton (Basketball))
