Sorry to go off topic, but I had this bar stool argument last night

Joe D's worst GM move

Drafting Darko or Signing Josh Smith

 

Pistons are 12-3 since they dumped Josh Smith, the guy was just not right for the team in any way.  He jacked so many bad 3's last year (a historic rate).  Josh Smith had a strong track history of being mediocre and a bad shooter.

 

Darko was widely considered to be the #2 guy.  The conventional wisdom in the NBA is to take the Big Guy if 2 guys are about equal.  Darko didn't have any screaming red flags around him.  I know it turned out to be a terrible move, but at the time it seemed at least defendable.

The worst possibilty. Instead of signing him to an extension, trading smith, or even a sign and trade, the detroit pistons will most likely lose Moose next year to free agency and can watch Josh Smith build more houses with those bricks.
