Well, the Onion has paid attention to the Pistons this season

OK … things seemed bad enough for the Pistons a week ago when Deadspin was taking pity on them. But now they’ve officially been satirized by The Onion too:

Most of Thirkell Elementary’s offense ran strictly through Thompson and point guard Megan Rivers, whom the Pistons struggled to keep up with because the fifth-grader can dribble with both hands and doesn’t have to look down at the ball to do so. On almost every possession, Rivers lobbed a high pass under the basket where only Thompson could reach it, allowing the nearly 5-foot-tall center to catch the ball and put up a shot from less than 5 feet away.

Once again, another problem that could’ve been solved by getting Andre Drummond‘s rim-protecting ability into the lineup more.
