06:03 PM ET 11.14 | The Detroit Pistons are off to an 0-8 start, which puts coach Lawrence Frank in a tough position. Obviously, the team has underperformed, but does it really pay for him to come down hard on the players now and break their spirits? Frank doesn't think so, and he explained why in an interview on Wednesday. "It's always easier to be harder when you're winning," Frank said after team's shootaround before Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. "The reality is you learn from losing, you really do. When you win, guys naturally feel good about themselves but there's also a complacency element. That's when, as a coach, you're on them harder."

Frank will be gone by All Star weekend and Joe will be right behind him. Darn you Philly I was hoping we started the season 0-17 so Frank and Joe could call 2 men and a truck
