Coach Curry, Give Arron Afflalo A Chance!

I see Coach Curry took my advice and put 'Dyess in the starting line-up. That was a smart move. However, he needs to make one more move to make this team better, and that is, put Rodney Stuckey back on the bench.

Sure, Stuckey had a couple of great games scoring 30 and 40 points as a starter, but a couple of great games doesn't make the Pistons a better team.

Lately, Rodney Stuckey has been invisible. I don't believe he's quit ready to be a starter in this league. Like Amir Johnson, I believe he's more comfortable coming off the bench for now.

If they think that the starting lineup would be too old if they placed Rip back into the starting line-up, then how about this... give Arron Afflalo a chance to start.

Ironically, Coach Curry gave all of the young guys a chance to start this season but Arron Afflalo. The only young guy who has been consistent this whole season.

I think Arron Afflalo can handle being a starter. 1. He's very mature for his age, 2. he's a gym rat and 3. he's very competitive... all the things that make a great leader. I bet he would do a great job playing alongside Allen Iverson.

Afflalo could be a defensive leader for the starting unit, just like Jason Maxiell is the defensive leader for the bench.

What do you say coach Curry?

It’s time for Michael Curry to put on his Captain Kirk thinking cap, as the Leader of the Pistons.

Enjoy!
