    You know you're team is in trouble when they have to look to Walter Herrmann as their "go to" guy with the game on the line.

    At least it was interesting . . .:twitch:

    To be honest though, that game was kinda interesting if only for all the WTF moves people were making.

    The team is disgraceful, but I'm enjoying it.

    Well after Sheed was kicked out, they really didn't have any other three point options to go to.

    I was kinda hoping Stuckey would take it; don't know why. IMO, Tay would have been a better option. They knew we were going to Rip, and Tay had just made one. He was open for another one after that, but Rip took a stupid shot.

    stuckey had fouled out so that option was out too... if your talking about the last shot... not sure if that was the one your talking about though.

    The NO announcers said that Tay was dangerous as the inbounds man, but you're not going to believe this, Tay meekly stepped inbounds and never made himself a threat.

    I count this as one in a row.

    Is Bynum a better option than Afflalo when you are down 3 and have 1 shot? What's the point in having a minute PG who can't shoot in the game if he's not going to be inbounding or acting as a decoy?

    Why not go with AA, Tay, Rip, Herrmann + Dyess? Then you'd have 4 shooters and a pick setter.

    We would have had better chance with Jarvis Hayes, Mo Evans, Jon Barry, or Damon Jones taking that shot to tie it than Herrrrrman...which tells you how confident I have been in our long guns off the bench ....

    Even though Rip had been cold/tired in crunch time I would still put in his hands and hoped that he got fouled behind the arc.

    With 8 losses in a row, the Pistons will now get a taste as to what it's like being a Detroit Lion.

    A leader is exactly what this team calls for. No one knows who the l eader of the team is. When you send AI to speak to the media (it should be the captain), send the captain to the bench (it should be AI)...

    Walter Hermann is our Dirk Nowitzki LOL

    Speaking of Dirk Nowitzki..his twin is in New Orleans in Sean Marks...except Sean Marks can't do anything like Dirk.

    You're right i forgot about that. I think mainly i just wanted to see Stuckey shoot in the last few minutes. He was havingan allergic reaction to the basketball.
