What the heck, Dumars?

June 25, 2009 - Steve Murch
Maybe Joe Dumars isn't the genius everyone thought he was. OK, most people didn't think that, but he continues to be baffling. After the season he said he plans on competing for titles all the time, but not with what has transpired in the last year.

First he fires his coach after falling short of the NBA finals, then gives the reins to a man with ZERO coaching experience. Then makes the dumbest trade by losing the heart of the team for an expiring contract. Then he drafts a guy who is at least a year away from really contributing, if ever.

Pistons fans better face the reality. After barely making the playoffs this year, they won't be close next year unless they sign some key free agents. If the hope is to get LeBron James after next season, then Dumars is going about it wrong. Why would he want to come to a team that is struggling and doesn't have a good supporting cast?

There are some pieces, but not enough to make a serious run without a big improvement in talent.
