4 takeaways from J.B. Bickerstaff's introductory press conference with Detroit Pistons

  1. Bickerstaff’s experience elevated him in the coach search
  2. He sees big potential in Cade Cunningham – on both sides
  3. Time with the Cavs will help him navigate Cunningham-Ivey pairing
  4. Adding veterans to the roster was a priority

Did he mention anything in regards to the bar being high!?

No, he was able to reach all the bottles??

Im not sure that Garland-Mitchell really worked for them, so #3 is sketch.

Also, they had a true point and a ball in my hands 2.
Not everyone can be Isiah and Joe I guess.

He now has a ball in my hands 2 at the 1 and a point forward 3 at the 2.

Good luck w that

Well, as I said before, I like him. See it in his eyes. He wants to win, and so long as he wans to win…I think we finally have a coach for the Detroit Pistons.

Did he tell the reporters to sit up straight?

Have some respect for the process… that reporter should have told Fatty to shove his pencil where the sun don’t shine :joy:

That fourth takeaway could be huge. I know teams like to be always pushing for either youth or super teams, but that means there is a big market of functional vets out there. Seems like just yesterday we won a title with a bunch of cast off vets

His shovel is sharp and his pick is sharp and his will is outstanding.

No, but we’re aiming for meaningful games in January.

Patricia was right when he said “the season doesn’t start until after Thanksgiving.” In Dan’s first season he didn’t even bother winning a single game until the week after Thanksgiving. The following year we went 5-1 after Thanksgiving and 4-7 outside of that. And of course last year we didn’t win the division or a playoff game until after Thanksgiving. :upside_down_face:
