In the comments on this post yesterday, the discussion turned to whether or not the Pistons, a team full of very mature young guys and a few very professional veterans, actually need the leadership component Ben Wallace offers anymore. I thought this quote, via Fox Sports Detroit’s Dana Wakiji, from Pistons Media Day, was very telling:
#Pistons Drummond on Wallace: I’m speechless being around him. He’s a legend. Some of the stuff he’s taught me, I can’t even put into words.

In addition to that quote making me like Drummond even more than I already did, I remain steadfast in my belief that the Pistons need to find a way to get Wallace on the roster.
