    Well this is the worse then that could happen. CB is a Knick.
    I thought he needed to be in Denver ? 2.5 years there so I guess he got his house straight.
    ----------------
    So they're 2-1 since BigShot arrived. But NY was ~.500 before the coming of CMBSB. They were ~.500 against the good teams. Including Heatles, Bulls and Spurs. That's the big difference between our team and being .500, they can make a shot and get a stop in a close game, 50% of the time.
    ----------------
    So last night the Billups Stout Melo show chilled out the Heatles with a Big Shot dagger and Stout block.
    ----------------
    Pistons won't be .500 for 3 more years. Can you deal with it ?!

    Yeah, I have this fear that CB would have turned into the same jerk as Rip had he stayed here. I can deal.

    But that was a sweet shot.

    He'll do fine against teams without quick PGs who can just run around him and make him work on defense.

    First of all, I don't know who JD would've traded for if A.I wasn't convenient. Apparently he had a jones for A.I. that never quit. And he let Sheed walk, so our ship would've had a rudder. But then, as I've said here before, I don't know if CB would've handled Curry's manic rotations. So yeah, different variables but same volatility.

    A decent coach can handle that issue Jay.

    You think a decent coach will defend the quick point guards?


    This should have been a poll...

    Well, Curry could have. But I guess you did say "decent" coach, didn't you? :MusicBigGrin:

    The more I think about it now.... and I was in the camp that thought it was time to part with him back then.... we got rid of the wrong guard...

    Trade Rip away and parted ways with sheed since I think his heart wasn't in it, and go forward with the remaining guards might have been... no strike that.... was really the way to go.

    While we now say Chauncey kept the team together.... it also goes to say that Rip was bringing Chauncey down.

    Beer quit trying to undermine my threads. I can do that myself. Coaches coach you dingleberry.
    ------------------
    Now you got Tate all bizarre.
    ------------------
    Round I can't see Rip bringing CB down. I think how CB handled Rip was correct. Rip would run around the world to get a pass from CB. Course Tay ended up in the corner all game...

    I meant we all saw CB's attitude and on the court worth dropping fast when we got ride of him... maybe alot of his perceived attitude issues were more due to being stuck having rip around...

    The way CB was going at that point in time, I thought it was a needed move... but from the min he's been away from the other sulking pistons he's been getting better IMO.

    The team was losing in the ECFs how bad is that ?
    CB and Rip were like two peas in a pot. Was CB embarrassed we lost in the ECFs? Did he blame Rip ? I didn't see any of that. Who was sulking before that ?

    Are you actually arguing that the team was not a mess after the last ECF loss?

    The Pistons had reached the end of their run. That was OBVIOUS. What Dumars has (hasn't) done since the end of the run has caused the mess.

    How do I leave out a whole word like that ?

    The run was not done. If JD held it together one more year, he would've seen the Cavs implode. I'd take our chances with the Celts again. Magic don't scare us.
    Maybe Sheed or Saunders needed to go. But that crap was on them.

    The Pistons had stopped doing the things that made them champions, had became overconfident, weren't the legendary defense they were before, and most importantly, the East had finally improved. No longer were Indiana and New Jersey the only two good teams. It felt like the run ended with Game 5, just didn't feel like the same team since.

    The players were steadily increasing their pressure on Flip. He refused to man up and put them in their places. The starters were to the point that they enjoyed their hero status more than winning championships. An infusion of talent wasn't going to help. Team needed breaking up at that point.

    He put his foot down on the offensively challenged BBen.
    Even if Saunders had been proactive, JD wouldn't have backed him up until too late.
    If ever.
