Coach Curry, I have Much Better Solution...

The Pistons are going to need a bigger line-up when the playoffs come right? Here's my solution:

Instead of having Rip Hamilton sit early in order to bring Amir Johnson off the bench, I would have Rodney Stuckey sit early.

First of all, unlike Rip Hamilton, Stuckey came off the bench last season, and is therefore used to playing with the second unit.

Second of all, Rodney Stuckey is a natural point guard and therefore can play well with any unit whether the first or second.

While Rip Hamilton plays better along side Tayshaun Prince and Rasheed Wallace.

That to me seems to be the perfect reason why Stuckey should sit early instead of Rip.

When it's time for Stuckey to sit, and time to for Amir to take the floor, I would make either Rip Hamilton or Allen Iverson play the point. Preferably Rip Hamilton, since he's a lot taller and therefore could see over the top of the defense.

Even if your scared to have Allen Iverson play the point, it wouldn't be for the entire night, just until Rodney Stuckey is back out on the floor.

So what do you think about my solution coach Curry? Pretty good huh?

STUCKEY right now plays like a SG, while AI have very good cluth passing rate, higher than CP3, NASH? JK. (DATA FROM 82games.com)So, let AI control the ball. Just like what PISTONS did when they vs Lakers.

I like your idea, but I think Joe and Curry have their eyes on the future (not exactly what a Pistons fan wants to hear), and therefore they want Stuckey to be the starter no matter what. He certainly is playing unbelievable right now we can all agree on that. It will be interesting to see if there are more changes to come and how soon they will be made.

On another note, I wanted to email you and ask you some questions, so when you get the chance email me at ckay4@vt.edu. Just became a follower also..
