NBA Podcast: Detroit Pistons 2012-13 Complete Season Preview

Joel C. Cordes@@bballJoelNBA Associate EditorSeptember 4, 2012

The Detroit Pistons have some intriguing parts. How long before Greg Monroe, Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey can get this franchise out of neutral?

In this episode of "Basketball by Association," NBA assistant editors Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes break down all the key roster losses and additions, discuss the biggest storylines to watch and set realistic expectations for the Pistons.

(If the embedded player fails to load, you can find the episode here.)

Where can Monroe, Knight and Stuckey still improve? How does this all too redundant roster fit together?

Why are leftovers like Tayshaun Prince and Jason Maxiell still on the roster when, even though they're fairly capable players, they're just eating developmental minutes? What roles will youngsters like Andre Drummond, Kim English and Kyle Singler play?

Joe Dumars gets both far too much credit and far too much animosity in alternating stretches. His true legacy is somewhere in the middle, but how much longer can he last, and how can he fix this middling roster before it's too late?

Better days are still ahead in Motown, but how much longer until they finally return?

Bleacher Report's "Basketball by Association" is your final destination for all things NBA!
