You know what the Pistons team reminds me of? The Disney Channel? Yes, the Malice at the Palace reminds me of the Disney Channel. Why?
Because this is a team in transition. And what was once the hot young stars? They are about to be eaten. Chauncey Billups is about to be replaced by Rodney Stuckey, who ironically is not sucky. Antonio McDyess is going to be the broken down ex-superstar who gets replaced by the energetic Jason Maxiel or the would be Lamar Odom in Walter Sharpe. And eveybody who's read Darko knows it's only a matter of time before Amir Johnson renders Tayshaun Prince obsolete because he's younger and faster.
Also? Watch out for Cheikh Samb. He supposedly got 30 pounds of muscle.
There's a blockbuster coming down the pike if this team struggles. If not? Expect some new blood for next season.
