What are everybody's thoughts on the current debacle that is the Detroit Pistons? In a way this team reminds me of the 2001 Pistons (veterans on the team that can possibly be replaced by younger players).
The only difference (and reason why I feel they won't make a run) is that it's a completely different Eastern Conference. Back in the early 2000s, the only legitimate threat in the East were the NJ Nets. Indiana occassionally reared its head. Both teams were relatively vulnerable.
We will see after this off-season but if the big 3 (Lebron, Wade, Bosh) get added to legitimate rosters in the East, it'll be tough to get past them.
Orlando has already established themselves as the guardians of the Eastern Conference for the next couple of years.
