Prince Aims to Right Ship in Detroit

The Pistons have had three consecutive losing seasons after winning 50 or more games seven straight years. And this season, it’s no better, as Detroit is 6-20.
But it’s not a place he’s (Tayshaun Prince) looking to abandon. He agreed to a four-year, $28 million deal rather than go home to play for one of the teams in Los Angeles — or someplace else.
“I am not the type of person who will run away when something is not good,” said Prince, a 10-year NBA veteran who turns 32 this month. “Things are not looking too well with what has happened the last few years, and I read all those articles that said I was not going to be here.”
Prince doesn’t like to lose, and he never expected the Pistons to take this big a dive.
He vows, however, this team will win again — under his watch.
“You can never be in a position to say what if I did this or did that after the fact because you will always second-guess yourself,” Prince said. “Now that I find myself in this position, the most important thing is to find a way to get ourselves out of it.”
