Video: Jonas Jerebko would like to hang onto his starting job and he learned a lot from leading the Swedish National Team this summer

Jonas Jerebko is one of a few Pistons vying for a starting power forward spot, and he says he plans to continue to bring the work ethic and energy that won him the starting job as a rookie last season.

He also talked about his strong play for the Swedish National Team and, although Dan Feldman got clowned a bit by Jerebko and Vincent Goodwill for bringing it up, Jerebko says he in now way sees himself as a center. A point of order fellas: when Jerebko was drafted, he was compared quite often to David Lee, who’s been an undersized center the last two years in NY. It was a legit question. It was certainly more legit than someone (who shall remain nameless, mostly because I don’t know their name) asking the mild-mannered and quiet Ben Gordon if he thought the NBA’s new technical foul rule would impact the way he plays.
