Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had a really good game to end the season last year, something like 30 points. That was not a good time to have his best game of the season; Pistons fans had the whole offseason to think about how good he was and his current woes can be chalked up to a slump.
Newsflash: this is how Kentavious has always been. His whole career has been one big slump, except for that one game. Expecting any sort of scoring consistency is expecting way too much. Good news though: his shooting form looks as good/kind of weird as it ever has, and the usual improvement from being a rookie should mean that he ends up providing useful minutes this year. That’s good news, right? Or are the Pistons tanking?
They must be. Josh Smith just went 2 of 17 and is probably calling people out in the locker room at this very moment.
