Detroit Pistons: 3 Troubling Signs, 3 Encouraging Signs
Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE
Is Jonas Jerebko saying "we give up?" Or "stop the madness?"

The Detroit Pistons are 0-8.  Feel free to choose from the following gloomy cliches: 

  • the bottom has fallen out
  • the end is near
  • the sky is falling
  • in space, no one can hear you scream (or is that Auburn Hills?)
  • anybody have a white flag I can borrow?

But hey, before you swandive from that Renaissance Center ledge or the main tower of the Ambassador Bridge (take THAT, Matty Moroun!), let's look at things more closely. We'll evaluate the games not purely from an emotional standpoint, but from a practical one as well.

And good news: You'll see there are several encouraging signs as well.

Don't get me wrong. The Pistons would desperately like to have a better record through six games. But as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once observed, "Only in the darkness can you see the stars."
