Pistons Have High Hopes

In the 2011-2012 NBA campaign, the Detroit Pistons went 25-41, a below average season. However, the win-loss record didn’t show everything. If you break down the actual season, you’ll see that on February 1st, the Pistons were in the cellar of the NBA at 4-20. They finished off the season 17-25, which, while it isn’t that great, it’s a lot more respectable than what the season began like. Also, they ended the season going 9-9.

The fact of the matter is that the Pistons are actually a lot better than they are made out to be, especially with an extremely underrated Greg Monroe. At the Pistons’ NBA Media Day today, Jonas Jerebko and Rodney Stuckey also said that this season is a failure if they don’t make the playoffs. If you look at it, it doesn’t look like that bold of a statement because EVERY team tries to make the playoffs, but with a team that is the caliber of the Pistons, it is a pretty big statement to make.

It’s going to be really exciting to see where Detroit ends up this year.
