    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 91: Mid-season crossroads - trade talk and playoffs?!

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 91: Mid-season crossroads - trade talk and playoffs?!

    We have reached the familiar moment in the season with our Pistons showing flashes while sitting just outside of the playoffs. We discuss potential trade rumors as well as the potential to stay put and see how things play out.

    The Andre Drummond trade talks have died down, so what will happen this off-season? Is the Drummond-era truly over? Derrick Rose’s value is now highly coveted by contending teams, but remains high for the Pistons as well. What direction do we see the Pistons moving in?

    And we’ll talk more about Reggie Jackson’s return and what that means for the line-up, especially with Derrick Rose playing so well.

    All that and more in this week’s episode!

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 90: Drummond’s probable departure, Griffin’s continued absence, and the arrival of Sekou Doumbouya!

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 90: Drummond’s probable departure, Griffin’s continued absence, and the arrival of Sekou Doumbouya!

    In this week’s episode, I’m joined by Detroit Bad Boys’ own Shameek Mohile! We’ll discuss what Detroit should do with a winnable schedule approaching. They’re only 3.5 games back of the eight seed in the East, and will face off against 13 teams with losing records, in their next 17 games.

    We’ll also break down the Blake Griffin situation, and discuss why it’s almost a guarantee that he’ll be shut down for the remainder of the season. With Blake Griffin on the bench, that’s given rise to DR. DOOM aka Sekou Doumbouya - we’ll cover what’s impressed us so far with the rookie.

    And last, but certainly not least - we’ll tackle the 6’11 elephant in the room - Andre Drummond. It’s almost a guarantee that he’ll be traded in the next month - what should Detroit expect in return? Who’s a realistic trading partner? And what does a trade mean for the Pistons’ near future?

    All that and more in this week’s episode!

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 89: Pistons "surge" and trade season strategy

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 89: Pistons "surge" and trade season strategy

    In this week's episode of Inside The Cylinder, we discuss the Pistons recent "surge". They've won four of their last six games: is this a sign that the season may turnaround? Or is it more reflective on their quality of opponent?

    We'll also discuss Reggie Jackson's impending return - he'll be re-evaluated in the next couple of days, and could get back on court as early as next week. How will this affect the Pistons line-ups? Who's minutes are going to decrease? And should Jackson come off the bench?

    Lastly, we'll talk the upcoming trade season, that kicks off on December 15th, when 90% of the league will be eligible to be traded. What will the Pistons do? What should the Pistons do? Buy, sell or stand pat?

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 88: Another game, another loss - what now?

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 88: Another game, another loss - what now?

    In this week's episode of Inside The Cylinder, we discuss Detroit's 4-10 start to the season. Detroit's lost a ton of "winnable" games, and are coming off a twenty point blowout loss to the Chicago Bulls - who many had predicted would miss the playoffs this season. It's their second loss of the season to the Bulls, and their fifth loss to expected lottery teams.

    Where do they go from here? Detroit's in a tough situation when it comes to a rebuild for a variety of reasons, but does that mean they should continue with this team as is?

    And what would a rebuild even look like? Soft rebuild? Blow this mother f'er up? We'll take a look at what Detroit can, and should do moving forward from here.

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 87: Pistons Mailbag!

    Inside The Cylinder Ep. 87: Pistons Mailbag!

    Blake Griffin is back in the lineup (on a minutes restriction) and the Pistons dropped three winnable games in a row. Team leaders have sensed frustration regarding overall effort and Dwane Casey continues to struggle with a makeshift rotation.

    We make sense of this familiar mess and answer your questions in these week's mailbag. Do we need to hit the panic button at the point guard position? Should we make a trade? And what the hell is wrong with this defense?

    All that and more in this week's episode!
