Good pictures.  Especially of the balding guy.

I'm getting more excited as the days go on. Shai is looking like a stud and even though Jerome is struggling a little bit, he's got the tools to be a volume scorer and an outside threat. They are both 6'5" and lanky so they could create matchup problems in the future. If Shai becomes a stud and Tobi turns into Kawhi... or not, (down for keeping Harris around as well), we keep Bradley around as a good role player for a bargain and Boban becomes the GOAT center, that Blake Griffin trade will be one of the biggest steals of all time.

Tobias and Shai are going to really haunt the Pistons for years to come. And Boban of course.

Shai is going to be a star and Jerome is going to be a stud- Westbrook light but playing within the offense.

If Jerome can be a Westbrook light without the selfish attitude, I think that'll soften the blow of passing up on MPjr.

With our depth being so thin at Center, (theoretically) Doc will have no choice but to play Boban extended minutes.

I'll believe it when I see it, I think Montrezl will play a lot of Center this year

I think you may even see some units with Luc or Scott at center.

Do we all think Boban is capable of playing big minutes? ( I am fan but there are obvious issues with quickness and athleticism)

Never happened in his career, not sure why we would expect it now.

Not big minutes, but I think he'd be a nice weapon for 6-8 minutes per half depending on the game flow. I would definitely give it an extended run to see what happens. Doc should have done it last season when the season was pretty much over.

I expect to see Gallinari as the 5 by default in a lot of situations.

He’s the only the big we have that can shoot. He’ll need to be out there to draw the opponents big out of the lane.

Gallo at the 5 would be scary on defense. Offensively he'd fit in nicely there, but you'd need a PF to serve as your C on defense in that case.
