There have been three major holidays since the Detroit Pistons last won a game and fans are hoping that the new year brings big changes.
At this point, any change at all would be viewed as a positive, as things can't get any worse and Detroit could at least start to rid itself of the stench of this losing streak.
It's hard to imagine a team coming back from this, at least in its current form, so will we see some big changes soon?
The head coach
Monty Williams initially turned down the Pistons' offer to coach them and it shows. He has coached like a guy who is learning his team on the fly and was ill-prepared to use the roster he has. Regardless of the reason, he hasn't been able to find an answer for this and has made head-scratching moves with Jaden Ivey and Ausar Thompson.
The Pistons probably should have considered that the man wanted to take a year off and it took a boatload of money to convince him to coach. But Williams signed a massive contract that is fully guaranteed, so he's not going anywhere.
There have been things to criticize about Monty's approach, rotations and how he has used his young players, but it's hard to put this on him, and he'll be given opportunities to turn it around.
