Video: Detroit Pistons coach John Kuester is excited by the team's versatility, but says players have to buy in defensively in order to earn minutes

Apologies for the extra caption at the beginning of this video. It looks dumb, but not really dumb enough for me to take it out and re-upload.

John Kuester talked mainly about his desire to see the team play tough, hard-nosed defense, form some chemistry and rebound the ball better. He was also pretty adamant that for his rotation, he’ll look first for the guys who play best together, not necessarily the most talented players of the bunch, stressing the importance of improved chemistry this season.

My favorite point he made was towards the end when he said Rodney Stuckey could become one of the best defensive guards in the NBA with proper commitment, a take I agree wholeheartedly with.
