The Pistons had just completed a victory over the equally hapless New Jersey Nets last week at The Palace of Auburn Hills, which was, maybe, a quarter full.
Embattled Pistons’ coach John Kuester has had some sort of run-in with at least half his team this season.
One of those players is Richard Hamilton, the Pistons’ all-time leading playoff scorer, who spent much of the season on the bench.
Hamilton had 25 points in this particular game.
“It‘s amazing what you can accomplish when your heart is in the right place,” Kuester said of Hamilton
It’s not so amazing what a team won’t accomplish when its collective heart isn’t in the right place.
Now that the Pistons have finally been sold to Michigan native Tom Gores, a Southern California financier, all excuses are gone.
He has a reputation for turning around reclamation projects. Well, the Pistons have become one.
