Tayshaun Prince, to the chagrin of some who take his blunt comments and sometimes dour demeanor as negative, has been the spokesperson for the team when things have gone sour in recent years.
He doesn’t mince words, nor play any favorites for the most part, when it comes to calling situations as they are. So it’s no surprise he was front and center after the Pistons’ seventh straight loss to start the season, a 96-82 drubbing from the Houston Rockets on Saturday night.
Prince predicted this team’s mettle would be tested with the early west coast trip, especially with so many unsettled parts, new roles for players on and off the floor, and having a second-year point guard still learning the position. But he surely didn’t expect an 0-7 start, nor does he consider it acceptable — no matter the circumstances.
