Trey Burke Still Awesome
Trey gonna Trey
You can go to Treys nba.com player page and view video of every single statistical play he has recorded this year.
So you can click on FGA, if you want to see all attempts from that game, or AST if you want to see all his assists from a particular game. pretty cool new feature the league implemented this year.
I miss seeing him in a Wolverine uniform.
So glad he returned for Soph year.
It was a great run last year!
Big Props to Trey for leading the Jazz to 3 wins in 4 games after starting 1-14.
On a similar note, Henne and the Jags have won 3 of 4 after starting 0-8. Always great to see wolverines do well in the pros.
and yet Detroit drafted Caldwell-Pope because he's taller
there were more than a few Caldwell-Pope proponents here on draft day. We'll see how that plays out--I'll take Trey.
So much for Trey being too short and too slow for the NBA
We all knew Trey was the man for the Pistons. Now we are stuck with Brandon Jennings. A talented player with no leadership qualities at all. I watched the last couple Utah Jazz games and barring injury, Trey is going to wreck shop in the league for a long time. Caldwell-Pope will be trade bait in a year although for my sake, I hope I'm wrong...
Exactly while the pistons continue to well, piston.
The +19 with Burke on the floor is most impressive to me.
And mofo's act like they forgot about Trey.
Thanks for nothing, Dumars.
I too stopped watching the pistons the day he traded for AI, and vowed they wouldn't make the playoffs again with him as GM....he's done a good job proving me right so far
Suck it, Joe.
10 bucks says he looked all cool while doing it.
Maybe sneak into Cameron and steal Walton Jr's jersey just for tonight? I hate losing to Duke and I'm not real confident going into tonight.
As stated on draft day, the Pistons have consistently refused to draft any Michigan player for decades - not just under Dumar's watch. It would seem that there is some sort of internal policy forbidding the drafting of Wolverines locally cause it would lead to horrible things like increased fan interest, strong community relations and an overall better win/loss record and those things need to avoided at all costs.
I can agree with that, and it's absolutely befuddling (is that a word?).
any outstanding NBA players in the past two decades. The Pistons never had a shot with Webber and Hill was a better player than Rose.
How many Spartans have doned A Pistons Jersey since the Mateen Cleaves debacle or even before (other than a washed up C-Webb)? The Stones had a period of 6-7 years where they have been great but thats a stint out of overall 20+ yrs and only 2 local player have been signed. Thats crazy in my opinion.
Let's not be rash, we did let Korey Lucious try out this summer
C'mon, KCP is averaging 7.4 point per game, all while shooting 35% from the floor and 27% from 3. He's also averaging almost a full assist a game.
Kid has STAR written all over him.
I would have thought after Darko that Dumars would have, you know, looked at KCP's college stats and realized that maybe this kid isn't that great of a shooter in game situations instead of being wowed by how great he shoots in workouts. I'm sure he's a fantastic HORSE player. Usually, if a guy is a "great shooter" he shoots better than 41% in college and he CERTAINLY shoots better than 33% from 3. (see Stauskas, Nik)
How does three wins in four games in a 82 game season change that?
In his career. They are going to suck this year regardless but they appear to be a completely different squad with Trey at the helm.
Trey comes to The Palace, and I've already got my tickets bought! Still can't believe Joe D passed him up...
I blame Mateen Cleaves. His total washout of a career probably spooked Joe D (who drafted him back in 2000) into not wanting to draft another local product coming off a Final Four run. That is irrational logic, of course, but I bet it was in the back of his mind. I'm afraid the Pistons are probably going to regret this one for a long time.
Wasnt quick, couldnt shoot, couldnt create at the rim, not a great athlete, didnt have great court vision. Trey was and is substantially better in all categories than Mateen. Joe made a mistake...
falls in love with players who give him a good workout. Darko came in, hit a bunch of shots and BAM, he's the #2 pick. Looks like KCP pulled the same trick. Came in, hit a bunch of meaningless practice shots, and Joe D. falls in love. Who cares that his college stats say that he's mediocre?
KCPs college stats say he was SEC player of the year in 2012...and before you say, rabble rabble SEC basketball, keep in mind UK, UT, UF and even Vandy to an extent have some major league hoopers.
As much as i hated not taking Trey Burke at the time, i was furious, I have really warmed up to KCP. Watching Pope this year he has the potential to be an elite perimeter defender and scorer. Pistons needed a 3 and D guy , plus we also upgraded at PG. It will be years before we know who is a better NBA player between Burke and KCP so for now i obviously wish them both well.
Just to make all those moves to be the 7 seed (only thanks to the craptasitc Atlantic) and face the Heat. And lose the draft pick. Drafting Burke and sucking hard enough to be in the lottery in THIS draft wasn't a good idea, nooooooo......
