Former Detroit Pistons forward Tayshaun Prince thinks that a certain decision made by the team in the 2003 Draft could helped them to write history in the league.
Back then, the Pistons acquired Darko Milicic, who was second pick during the Draft process, leaving Carmelo Anthony ripe for the taking by the Denver Nuggets. Of course, the team from Detroit won next season’s title, but enlisting Melo might have enabled them to create a dynasty of title rings.
“I think if we did take Melo, maybe two, maybe three, maybe four championships,” Prince said to CBS Sports. “And then after my fourth or fifth year, now you have to decide what you want to do. But at least you know going in, if you take Melo we got a guy. And who knows, he comes off his bench the first year or two, or maybe they insert him into the starting lineup, whatever.
“But we knew coming in, if he could come in off the bench and accept that sixth man role, we’d be pretty awesome for the next five or six years before they make the decision if they’re going to keep me or him.”
