    Cade 10 for 26. Guy might be a bigger bust than Hutchinson

    Ausar was +6 in 30 minutes. The 18 minutes he didn’t play, we were out scored by 29

    This team sucks, but Monty's insistence on playing these all bench line-ups when we can't even field a competent starting 5 is infuriating every night.

    Absolutely embarrassing. If something major doesn't come out of this, absolutely no reason to treat this as a serious franchise anymore.

    This is the most embarrassing team I've followed and I've watched the 03 Tigers and the 0-16 Lions

    Weaver is the biggest fraud. Worse than Al Avila and Matt Millen.

    you can’t fire Montgomery, and Gores won’t fire his boy Weaver.

    I would trade Cade. He is big part of this teams problem. High volume player, with little to no production.

    Killian has 0 points in 16 min

    Meanwhile in Indianapolis, Haliburton has 31 on only 16 shots and 7 assists. Averages 25 and league leading 12+ assists a game.

    That decision alone should get Weaver fired. Let alone all the other shit

    Ku wasn't there to ask him why Killian isn't starting? James wasn't there to ask a layup so he can write some puff piece about how close they are to turning corner?

    Ku screaming and ranting on his pod about the Pistons roster being so poor and the lineups being terrible for Cade is hilarious since he was literally fighting dudes on Twitter they needed to keep this lineup earlier in the year and was the biggest cheerleader of Killian starting

    Is Joe Harris hurt, or have they just admitted he was a horrible use of our cap space and stopped playing him?

    I am not a nba defensive stat nerd, but Killian defense is overrated to me. I don't see an elite defender watching him and the advanced stats I do see don't seem to show an elite defender. He's also highlighted in that video as well for lack of effort.

    He has moments of being a good defender, but nowhere to the level he deserves to play given how little he provides in every other part of the game

    He’s the second best defender on the team. He’s also probably one of the top shooters at this point. Team is fucking terrible

    Team is fucking terrible, but without getting into the weeds, Duren and Ausar at the very least are better defenders than Killian. He's 8th on the team in defensive rating. He's also 14/15 on the team in true shooting %, ahead of only Livers. So neither of those statements are true

    Duren isn’t a good defender. Also there is no way Killian is ahead of our savior Livers in shooting. Livers has to be #1
