The Rodeo Road Trip is over and the San Antonio Spurs will finally be back home in the AT&T Center for tonight's game against the Detroit Pistons. To preview tonight's game, I turned to longtime Project Spurs friend Natalie Sitto of the Pistons blog, Need4Sheed.com.
Detroit is 23-34 this season. They are 3.5 games behind the eight-seeded Atlanta Hawks. Is this what you expected from them?
Absolutely not. It's not like we are delusional in Detroit eight, but after being beyond mediocre for quite a few season there had been hope in Motown.
On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the worst), how would you rate Josh Smith's four-year, $54 million contract?
Is 72 an option? If not I'll put it at a 10 especially after watching what this team has done with him in the starting lineup for more than a half of a season. He is playing out of position, but that doesn't account for the miserable shots he takes and the bad decision he makes. His contract is an albatross and the fact the Pistons aggressively tried move him at the deadline tell you they know it was a mistake too.no comments
