It's Joe's mindset that's past it's prime....
He can't get it thru his thick head that this team needs to rid itself of all marginal NBA veteran talent, keep Monroe, and have a couple 18-23 win seasons, so they'll have a shot at infusing high-end talent in the Draft.
They are NOT gonna get anywhere drafting #7 thru #12 - with NO top-five pick. And Detroit's not a Free Agent destiny....so...they'll need to get their own Dereon Williams, Derrick Rose, John Wall, etc.
Having a top draft pick and a superstar fall into your lap wit a no brainer pick makes a lot of GMs look better than they really are.
