Pistons' guard Richard Hamilton is certainly glad to see Michael Curry replace Flip Saunders as the team's coach.

"I was disappointed at the way Flip (Saunders) did things, that was the frustrating thing about it," Hamilton said.

He refused to get into specifics, but his displeasure was at times clear last season.

"I have always been happy," Hamilton said Wednesday. "I had a son (at the start of last season), which was one of the greatest times of my life. That was not a disappointment. Nothing off the court was a disappointment."

Curry might know exactly what Hamilton and the Pistons need.

"Players like to be challenged, and they want discipline, even if they fight at times," Curry said.

That's how players are, once someone they dont like leave, they finally confess.

Yeh I've noticed that a lot lately. Players don't like their old coaches. :rock:

Never liked Flip either. He does a decent job during the season and then come playoff time he seems to choke. That didn't happen with the same team with Larry Brown and with the exception of Ben Wallace departing.

I've never liked any of the Pistons coaching staff they've had for awhile. I think Carlisle did a decent job there for awhile, and I can't stand Larry Brown, though he led them to the title(a few other factors were in play though).
