PISTONS SHOULD SIGN SPREWELL IF ALL ELSE FAILS
The Pistons can used one more bad egg without disrupting team chemistry. That is how strong the dressing room is. That means if they do not sign Jalen Rose or Michael Finley or any other swing man then they should sign Minnesota Timberwolves guard Latrell Sprewell. He won`t disrupt the Pistons because he won`t have a running buddy to tear down this kingdom. Sprewell is disruptive when he does not respect management or has a clown like Sam Cassell to run evil ideas by. He won`t even have Rasheed Wallace because Wallace won`t buy into it either.
Rasheed likes to act a fool on the court. He will continue to lead the league in technical fouls because he is filled with emotion that blinds him. He is not an evil political force that harms teammates. In fact Sheed is working on his game and trying to erase the titantic mistake he made in Game 5 of doubling the corner and leaving Robert Horry alone for a game-winning three point shot. Sheed is too busy beating himself up over that and has no plans for a revolt. And that will continue despite the loss of Larry Brown. People are wrong when they say LB kept Rasheed in line. That is not true. The fear came from President Joe Dumars who set policy and enforced it. Brown likes to teach and coach. But he left the discipline to Dumars. Guys wanted to speak out about Brown during the playoffs but it was Dumars who told them to keep quiet. Rasheed got the low down on Piston conduct from Dumars, not Larry Brown. Is it a gamble to bring in Spree? You are damn right it is. But I don`t like the alternative of trusting Carlos Delfino to carry the load off the bench. The guy is soft and he must learn the Piston way before he can progress. My first choice is to bring Rose back to town. My last choice is to bring in no one to counter what Miami, Cleveland and Indiana have added.
How serious are the Pistons about signing Spree? They are pretty serious. There are other options but this is one they are not afraid of.
