I get it. John Kuester isn’t exactly Joe the Plumber off the street. Sure, he has a legitimate resume, even if it’s being an assistant coach on the team that requires the least coaching in the league, i.e give the ball to Lebron and stand around the three point line. But my concern is this….
Over the last three hires, the Pistons have hired coaches with less and less experience. They went from going to the NBA Finals two years in a row under Larry Brown, to losing in the Eastern Conference Finals three years in a row under Flip Saunders, to getting bounced in the first round under first year coach Michael Curry last season. If that pattern holds, Detroit will be in the lottery next season. Seems like a backward step to me.
