We felt like we should have been a playoff team this year. We had a lot of dysfunction this year, things that we weren’t pleased with and that we’re not used to seeing here in Detroit.
I’ll be the first person to raise my hand and say, ‘You know what? Let me take whatever blame that needs to be taken, let me be the first person to step up and take some of that blame as to us not making the playoffs this year.’
Dery also asked Dumars whether he’d mad a decision about John Kuester. I found Dumars’ answer interesting. Although, he said there would need to be conversations in the offseason, he never explicitly denied having already made a decision. He just called the discussion “inappropriate” to have publicly now
I’m disappointed with a lot of guys and their actions this year. So I’ll stop short of just singling out Stuckey. We had a lot guys that I was disappointed in, in their actions this year. That situation that you just mentioned was one of them. But I don’t want to just single him out, because there’ve been some other things happening this year that were un-Piston-like and that we’re all disappointed in.
