Pistons.com says that 20 games into the season, you can start to draw some meaningful conclusions. One of those conclusions is that the Eastern Conference isn’t very tough so far.

In Pistons State of the Union: Joe Dumars Question and Answer Conference Call, Need4Sheed breaks down a recent call from Pistons President Joe Dumars to season ticket holders. High points include a look at rumored moves involving the Pistons: Iverson (no), return of Ben Wallace (no) and Kevin Garnett (highly unlikely), answers to questions like “Why doesn’t Sheed get the ball more in the low post?” and even an audio clip. Also be sure to check the site out for all kinds of Piston multimedia including computer backgrounds and video.
Detroit Bad Boys has typically solid coverage of the team and picked up an ESPN interview with Rasheed Wallace. In it, the NBA’s reigning problem child talked about technicals, the new ball and missing Big Ben.
Motoring, a Pistons column on Most Valuable Network, also notes that the Bad Boys are one of four teams (along w/ Chicago, Orlando and Cleveland) that have winning records in the East. Joel says with poorly performing teams like the Pacers, Nets and Sonics coming up, it’s a perfect time to make hay and open up a lead.
