Jonas Jerebko guarantees Pistons will make playoffs next year

Jonas Jerebko, via Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

"We’re going to the playoffs next year. We know what it takes. You can’t start off a season 4-20 and bounce back."

He was asked if he was guaranteeing anything, seeing as how former Piston Rasheed Wallace made headlines years ago with his famous boasts.

"Yes, sir," said Jerebko with a smile. "We’re a playoff team, with playoff-caliber players."

I don’t know whether Jerebko will be right, but the Pistons have a reasonable shot of making the playoffs next season – especially if their players prepare as though it’s an expectation.
