On Monday night, the Detroit Pistons played a nationally televised game on TNT against the Boston Celtics. Prior to the game, Charles Barkley, who is an analyst on Inside the NBA, took a shot at the Pistons roster.

Going into their game against the Celtics, Detroit had an overall record of 21-26, which put them tied for 9th in the Eastern Conference, 1.5 games behind the Charlotte Hornets for the 8th and final spot in the playoffs.
Many thought this was going to be a breakout type season for the Pistons after finishing 44-38 a year ago and giving the Cleveland Cavaliers a tough out (despite being swept) in the first round of the playoffs, but things have not gone as planned.
What do you think, Nation? Is Charles Barkley on the money with his comment about the Pistons?
