    I think it comes down to Philly/ATL play defense. The other teams can't spell defense.

    If Atlanta wins, then it will become clear that the reason the Wolves never got out of the first round was KG holding them back and not Flip. Thankfully we got the right one.

    This just in, the Hawks and Hornets will play in the finals:MusicBigGrin:

    After the Pistons dropped their first game, and the Celtics won their first two by 20, who would have thought that we would have grabbed 3 victories before the Celtics did??:noidea:

    I wonder if there is something to this resting before the playoffs thing. Pistons and Celtics were the only 2 teams resting starters while the 7th and 8th seeds were still going strong.

    Garnett running his mouth to the ref after a tech...if he was Sheed, he'd be gone.

    I can't get over that. Leggler was saying they looked at intent and blew it all off. That's worse because now the NBA is inconsistant and subjective.

    Didn't he push the ref as well? I'm almost positive.

    That's not news really. When was Stern ever consistent and objective?

    He definitely shoved the ref on Monday night (with Stern at the game)...I didn't see him do that last night. But after he and Johnson got T'd last night, he complained to the ref for quite a while and didn't get booted. In similar situations last year, all Sheed had to do was look at the ref and he got ejected.

    The way Stern and his crew are catering to KG & Boston in this series, it won't matter if the Pistons get to the ECF and play great...there's no way Stern will allow the Pistons to get to the Finals. He's gonna make sure either KG or Lebron get there instead...most likely Boston because the Cavs sucked so bad last year.

    Just curious.

    Has anyone questioned Stern on this matter, or the chnace has not come to ask him as of yet? I for one am waiting anxiously for his answer to not suspending KG.

    Don`t think for a minute that the Pistons (Sheed) didn`t notice what happened with the pushing incident. Further, if it is a Piston/Celtic ECF you can bank on the Pistons (Sheed) going off if there is any favoritism towards Boston in any way.

    It`s a bit preamture but the Pistons (Sheed) will have to be on his beast behavior if Detroit wants a chance to go to the Finals.

    First things first, the 76ers and Magic need to be taken care of, and Boston has perhaps someone even more protected by Stern on their agenda before they face Detroit, KING JAMES!!!

    I love it when Sheed is on his BEAST behavior.

    And there will be game 7 after all. Boston looked lost at the end. They couldn't run any plays and Doc was just shrugging. Clearly not a good situation.

    Anyone on the forum willing to trade Flip for Doc straight up?

    Did Doc get more credit than he deserved during the regular season?
