Josh Smith is still taking outside jumpers, Brandon Jennings is still Brandon Jennings and Andre Drummond can’t stay out of foul trouble. There’ve been a few bright spots in the first two games of the season for the Detroit Pistons, but for anyone ready to jump aboard the Stan Van Gundy bandwagon at the onset of his tenure with the team, the 0-2 start is a reminder that the team’s new head coach a
