Probably this guy:
I know we have struggled with him, but if he was actually playing I would be a lot more confident.
I was hoping to see him rise to the occasion in a playoff environment.
We definitely need to elevate our play by a huge amount over the regular season play and it was the one area that was possible.
Now, the only upside is that maybe the chemistry issue goes away and the team forges a true identity. Unlikely that will be enough though, even if it happens.
This might sound crazy, but I honestly think the only way cleveland beats us in the series is if the refs give it to them. Will Bynum will tear a Ben Wallace-less Cavs team apart and if sheed can stay focused and keep his cool we could win this series easily; I think it's time the pistons prove how good they really are they've always been the team with all of the pressure well now they have none.
Don't know. Sounds kind of old fashioned. Having to play the games. Ain't they got fancy computers that can figure it all out? Let me see. Lets input some data. No coach. No backup small forward. Typically no power forward used. No inside play. Old men. Enough. Lets see what the computer spits out: Input error. Only NBA teams accepted.
I think if you did input everything into a simulator and ran it for 1000 trial seasons then 39-43 would be near the low end of the results.
If you ran 1000 trials for this series, I am sure that there would be at least some in which the Pistons win.
But we only get one.
Thinking about this line from the latest Rocky movie ( also called Rocky - straight to DVD ). Every great fighter has one last good fight left.
What if that applied to all athletes and say Sheed comes out with a 20/10 series and Dyess avg 15 RPG and Rip/Tay have the series of their lives.
It can happen?
But it won't.
Plus Rocky had a good coach.
And the will to win.
What if Curry is a mastermind coach in the playoffs? He already has Brown guessing on which rotations we will use.
You lost the only guy that had the will to win, and along with that, you lost your 4th quarter.
I am really bored.

Delonte West sucks, Z makes the most disgusting shots. He sucks. Verajo sucks. Ben isn't even going to play. Joe Smith is all right. Mo Williams has been very good.
Pisses me off how dominant LeBron is. His supporting cast still doesn't match any of our guys.
Since it's an early game i will be able to watch it live. I just hope the Pistons will show up and put up a fight.
Thanks for the stats Slow.
This Small Forward match-up looks like trouble.
Someone needs to take Lebron out...with like a thunderstix.
People here will still tell you he ain't all that.
MO FREAKING WILLIAMS is their second best player.
