Pistons are even better without Brown

The article focuses on the basketball team Detroit Pistons. All of their players are in their primes and given their natural tendency toward unselfishness, the team is also in its prime. Antonio McDyess is rebounding well but shooting horribly. Carlos Delfino hasn't done much to merit a crack at the rotation. Darko Milicic still is used for mop-up and little else. Gregg Popovich is Larry Brown's best friend, but he has no desire to follow his mate's example by taking on a reclamation project for the sake of a challenge.
