Coach Lawrence Frank is trying to get the Detroit Pistons to be more unselfish.
Getting their first win of the season would certainly make that a lot easier.
The Pistons look to break into the win column for the first time with their sixth consecutive victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.
Detroit (0-4) remained one of only two winless teams in the NBA after falling 109-97 at Denver on Tuesday.
"All the best teams are," Frank said of being unselfish. "Look, who's the most coachable player on the Spurs? Tim Duncan. Who's the most coachable player on the Celtics? Kevin Garnett. Who's the most coachable player in Oklahoma City? Kevin Durant. Who's most coachable player of the Miami Heat? LeBron James. This is not calculus. This is not trying to figure out the next Pythagorean theorem.
"This is easy: Your players have to unite and inspire by how they play. It's that simple."
Greg Monroe was one of the few bright spots Tue...

Jerebko fell to the court clutching his throat and was examined by the Pistons...

SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Kings' DeMarcus Cousins and the Detroit Pistons' Greg Monroe, two up-and-coming centers, looked forward to facing off in the paint Wednesday, having compared each other's careers since entering the NBA as first-round picks in 2010. On this night, Cousins earned the win despite Monroe's impressive statistical performance. With Cousins...
In the 4th quarter of Wednesday night’s Kings-Pistons game, Thomas Robinson and Jonas Jerebko got tangled up as Robinson boxed Jerebko out for a rebound. Then for some reason or other, Robinson elbowed Jerebko right in the throat and instantly, Robinson’s night was over.
The post Thomas Robinson was ejected last night after elbowing Jonas Jerebko in the throat first appeared...
The coach speaking is Mike Longabardi who was brought in last year to replace Lawrence Frank as the team's defensive coach. Some people might find this stuff boring, but personally I love it. Jeff Green should use that move at the 2:40 mark in a game. Rondo's move at 3:31 is pretty nasty as well.
