Breaking Pistons news and analysis of developments within the team and around the NBA.

Class is in session with Michael Curry as head coach.
Players will be given offensive and defensive grades for each game on a scale of 0-100. They'll get points for doing their job correctly and minuses for missteps, including technicals.
"On a possession in which Rasheed (Wallace) gets a technical, he'll get a minus on that possession," Curry explained. "It's no different than a possession when someone didn't close out and contest a shot."
Curry has also come up with 16 Keys to Winning Basketball, though even he gets them mixed up at times. Curry said on Wednesday that Rule No. 1 was Be Professional. He then amended that after practice Thursday, saying that was Rule No. 2. Rule No. 1 is No Excuses. Two others are Always Be The Aggressor and Leave the Refs Alone.
The other 12? He'll reveal those one at a time.
