    1. The Feeling of nausea continues to creep in everytime someone mentions the NBA Championship between the Heat & the Mavs

    2. Feeling ill rooting for any team knowing the pistons should have been one of the two teams playing.

    3. Seeing Alonzo Mourning flexing his muscles after a rebound, block, ie.

    4. Listening to the announcers going on and on about D Wade & Nowitzski.

    5. The sportscasters, analyzing and over analyzing and triple analyzing why the pistons lost.

    6. Listening to the sportscasters going on about what if LB was still in detroit and the curse of Flip Saunders.

    7. Did I mention every analyst on the broadcast including guest analysts will continually put the pistons under the proverbial microscope.

    I know there are others who can come up with at least 10-12 more reasons.................

    If I hear one more person say they are rooting for the Heat because poor Zo and GP need a ring I`m going to puke!

    I hope Dalls beats the dog s&$% out of the Heat......:mad:

    Agree, Dlev...we are on the same page. Go Mavs

    The other deal is that some don't even care about Zo and GP, they just want Shaq to win another ring so that they can justify his status as one of the greatest champions and more importantly to get a silly soundbite out of him.

    Woody Paige @ESPN has been on the Shaq bandwagon since he moved to south beach in 2004 and still offers the excuse that the Pistons were the beneficiaries the last two years of either Shaq or someone on his team being injured:doh:

    I need only one reason- Pistons are not playing in the Finals.
    Maybe another one is that these finals are an artificial creation by the rule changes- good for the league and superstars, bad for teamwork and defense. I mean, this game becomes softer and softer, guys like Pippen, Rodman or Laimbeer would be fouled out every game after today's rules.
    I just wonder if the ref's are going to continue to give Wade so much room.

    Forget bout the NBA Finals. I'm watching the WORLD CUP 2006.

    It's held in Germany and all 64 games are shown 'live' here. Early matches starts at 10pm and late matches starts at 3am.:doh:

    God, when can i get some sleep???

    Boy I hate what happened in the first game to Rolly.









    Oh, we're talking Basketball finals.

    I'd rather have my toenails taken out with a visegrip than watch either Shaq/Wade brag on a Finals win or Cuban.

    I'm enjoying it. Any way you slice it, we didn't deserve to be there. Mavs do, and they play well so it's nice to watch.

    Yep, and the Dutch team is in it with a great chance to win it all.
    Being to some degree thankfull to the Pistons not to make it to the Finals. Now I have to concentrate on 1 team only.;)

    Saw the 1th half of game 1 last night. Switchted it of, because I could not stand to hear the name Wade one more time.:mmph:
