Think how good the Pistons would have been last year if they had taken carmello instead of darko.
you can't really say they would have been better because what they proved was that players that are able to fit into certain roles and play as a team are better than superstars playing as individuals, so you have to really wonder if they would have been better off with melo instead prince who is a good offensive player but also a terrific defender, personally i think the pistons are a better team with prince than they would be with melo, nothing against melo

If they got Carmelo then Prince wouldn't have played barely. He was a key piece to that defensive team. I think it will be LeBron just because he is freakin sick. I really hope Hinrich has a really great season, I have liked him for a while.
I would take Prince over Carmelo anyday. Prince is a team player and is already one of the best defensive players in the league IMO. He hustles, is a team player, and plays defense. That is something I want on my team, not a selfish player like Carmelo.

Kirk Hinrich was underrated all year and now he has young weapons all around him. I think he will be one of the leagues best point guards in a few years, he plays good defense, has great point size, is going to be a great shooter and he plays smart.

LeBron will average a triple double sometime in his carrer. When he 1st came into the league I thought he was an overhyped, soon to be bust. Well he sure proved me wrong and this kid is something else. He will have a few rings when his carrer is also over.
