John Kuester to blame for Pistons’ problems, according to Terry Foster


The first shots have been fired. In his column today, The Detroit News’ Terry Foster wrote some very harsh words about John Kuester:

"Pistons coach John Kuester said he wanted to take a long look at the game film of the Pistons’ stunning 120-116 loss to the Raptors to figure out how they blew a 25-point second-half lead after scoring a season-high 72 points in the first half.Kuester is wasting his time.The problems Saturday cannot be found on game film. They are between the ears and are etched inside of a coach who cannot pull the right gears."

Read the whole column. The rest of it isn’t much kinder, but Foster came just short of dropping the f-word – fired.

I don’t recall another mainstream writer taking such a harsh stance on Kuester. I suspect Foster won’t be the last to do so, and this column won’t be strongest to be written.
