Will "The Thrill" Bynum has provided MAJOR excitement this season thus far for the Detroit Pistons. With his defensive pressure, and his ability to spark the offense, and pump up the crowd in every game.

Bynum is coming off the bench this year averaging 14 points a game, and just over 4 assists. He has been Mr. 4th quarter recently providing great defensive pressure and scoring to keep the Pistons in close games.

It is impressive what this guy can do with how small of a guard he is. From his defensive pressure, to his huge dunks that gets everyone out of their seats, to his 27 point performance against the Dallas Mavericks, this guy can do it all.

Being a big part of that three guard lineup (including Rodney Stuckey and Ben Gordon) he is a big reason the Pistons are at a .500 season despite being without Rip Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince due to injury.

Bynum has been a major threat off the bench all season long scoring in big games. Putting up 20 against Orlando, 16 against Charlotte and Toronto, 20 against Washington, and 27 against the Mavericks.

He provides more excitement off the bench than any player in the NBA, and is possibly the most consistent. The Pistons may have the best guard lineup in the NBA due to the playing of Ben Gordon (23 ppg), Rodney Stuckey (17 ppg) and Will "The Thrill" Bynum (14 ppg). Imagine what the Pistons will be able to do on the scoring end once Rip Hamilton comes back who averages 18 ppg for his career.

These Pistons are no joke this year, and have surprised everyone with their defensive pressure. Once Rip and Tayshaun are back in the lineup, the Pistons will be putting up big numbers, and the bench players who have been getting big minutes will be much more consistent coming off the bench.

The Pistons have a chance to make a good run deep into the playoffs this season. Congrats Joe Dumars.
