The Detroit Pistons are an abject disaster. They had a roster of talented players focused around Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith brought in through free agency adde to Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond. They had veteran leadership in Chauncey Billups. They had shooters, they had a new coach. Everything was supposed to come together, even if they weren't all that efficient. Detroit is a train wreck. It's a nightmare. They can't spread the floor, they can't defend the pick and roll, they struggle with basic assignments. And their shot selection is the worst. Most of that comes down to Smith. This isn't anything new, Smith has always wanted to shoot threes and mid-range jumpers over working the paint, but it's gotten out of hand this season. He's taken 345 shots in the restricted area, according to NBA.com, making 67 percent of them. From mid-range, the lowest efficiency spot on the floor, he's taken 355 shots, making just 34.4 percent. Think about that!...
