The Detroit Pistons general manager/president, Joe Dumars steps down as there president, as of Monday April 14, he will no longer be playing a major role into shaping the Detroit Pistons. Since the Detroit Pistons lost on there final home game against the Toronto Raptors, with one game left in the season,in Dumar's words, "Its time to turn the page on a wonderful chapter and begin writing a new one." The Detroit Pistons were a wonderful team back in 2003-2008, when they had reached the Eastern Conference every year, but once Dumars signed Ben Gordon, Charlie Vilianueva and traded Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson,the lineup could never bounce back into what they used to be and Dumars knew he had made a mistake. People are very comfortable about the decision that Dumars made, he is getting back some positive feed-back from other staff. I feel like Dumars made a great decision because the Pistons weren't getting anywhere, and I guess he feels like if he's not doing something right to make the team a good team, I guess he can give someone else a chance to do what he couldn't do.
