McHale rips Detroit's signing of Gordon, Villanueva
“A cautionary tale of all GMs that have a few bucks in their pocket; sometimes its better not to spend it," McHale said. "They spent it on Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva, two nice players but not players who are going to probably be able to carry your team. They are nice complementary players."
Both Gordon and Villanueva are coming off a horrible month of February and are struggling to get consistent minutes. Not exactly the return on investment the Pistons hoped for. Both were coming off career years last season, but are now regulated to role players off the bench for a bad Detroit team.
Mahorn says team has no identity
Former Piston Rick Mahorn joined the NBA TV broadcast at halftime and was asked what he felt the Pistons are currently missing.
“You put your finger on identity, each team has an identity. What are you known for? Right now, we just don’t have an identity," Mahorn said.
Mahorn is spot on with his assessment. The team has been horrid offensively and ranks among the league's worst in nearly every offensive category. Making matters worse Detroit is nowhere near the defensive powerhouse it once was. What is the team's identity? A lottery bound team in need of an overhaul.
