UNDER SIEGE

It just keeps getting worse for the Pistons.
Rasheed Wallace will be suspended for Friday's game against Orlando for reaching the league's season limit on technicals. That means Kwame Brown will get extended minutes against the NBA's best center, Dwight Howard, as the Pistons try to halt their slide at eight games. Let's just say I don't like their chances.
A bigger issue involves Richard Hamilton. With the team reeling, Hamilton says he wants his starting job back. If Michael Curry doesn't have enough headaches, he now faces the dilemma of either angering Rip by leaving him on the bench or asking Allen Iverson to take the bullet and come off the bench. Curry may be able to delay his decision temporarily because Iverson has a bad back and may not play this weekend.

I did not remotely see this total collapse coming, but now that the wheels are coming off, it would be a perfect opportunity for Curry (with Dumars' public backing) to practice some of that "accountability" that they implied was missing from the Saunders' regime. That sure has been missing in terms of doling out playing time, hasn't it?
