Rip Hamilton Complaining about Role Again

Sitting at his locker room after Wednesday’s 90-87 loss at New Orleans — the Pistons’ eighth straight — Hamilton was openly critical of coach Michael Curry’s decision to make him the sixth man.

"The way we’ve been starting is the way (Curry) wants it," Hamilton said. "I’ve said I’m happy to come off the bench as long as we’re winning. But we’re losing.

"Something’s got to give. I’m all for doing whatever it takes for the team, but coming off the bench with us not winning, something’s got to change."
