So what is Joe Dumars building here? Is there something to this team that could ever contend? I don't like thinking about this, because when I shut my eyes and think as hard as I can, all I see... ...is teal.
No need to end this on a sour note, however. This coming season will be an improvement over the last. If the team can stay healthy, the record will bump into the 30s. If Greg Monroe is the NBA-ready player that Dumars has him pegged as, his involvement could lead to a healthier offense in 2010-11.
