    I think Bill Laimbeer pointed out earlier that it just isn't worth getting worked up over unfounded rumors like this.

    Yeah, I know. But just the thought of Prince no longer being on the Pistons (and getting a 20-10 guy in Boozer) got me a bit too excited! rofl

    Not sure if there's a thread to get opinions on Tay or Rip being the man to go... if I had to make a choice it would be Rip... not because he's less valuable... more like recognizing that we can't have a team of selfish players... I do think Tay's length is undervalued for closing passing lanes and playing above the rim.

    I'm hearin' KG about the frustration of watching Tay disapearing and getting abused by physical SF's... this is why I've always promoted Tay as a supersub.

    What's the feeling... Tay or Rip next to go?

    I say ship Rip. He's been more of a primadonna on the team. His contract is worse. And we already have shooting guards who can step in and play.

    Both... of course I realize that is unlikely.

    It would be stupid to trade Tay,becouse then the team has no real Kobe/Lebron/Melo...stoper;we need a true starting SF in team;RIP playing SF is stupid.Don't hate Prince for his worst season in his career.

    Lebron made 25 points in one quarter against T.Prince in sixth game of ECF, Tay can´t stop lebron,his length is perfect to defend Kobe but we are in central division like cleveland cavaliers,we need for long term(not short termnext year) one anti lebron james player or elite future all star player to atack lebron on ofensive side...tay is not the player,but first and urgent target is deal Rip before he gets older and nobody wants his contract.

    1.Ok Prince can't stop LBJ on 1vs1,but he can't defend other great scorers.
    2.Magic shown us that you don't really need to stop LBJ to win.One man can't win the series,maybe he can win 1-2 games but not the series.
    3.If we trade Prince our team will have only Offensive players and no D players.


    In todays rules and that Stern loves LBJ,yes no one can't stop LBJ.

    Rip has to go because...

    He is at a position where talent is abundant. And he makes a lot more money, and with the cap coming down next year, his contract will become like a max contract, which is ridiculous. I like Rip's game, but he is not a max player by any stretch of the imagination.

    It would be great if we could ship both of these guys out. I would rather win 35 games and feel like we left it all on the court, than win 45 games and feel like we didn't give our all.

    I still don't get it - if JoeD has no plan on shipping RIP out of D- town, why the freakin' hell did he sign Ben Gordon???

    Who said that?

    He may not have accepted a particular trade. That doesn't mean he has no plans.

    It seems to me as if he ain't got one - maybe he has a plan but in my opinion, he should have something fixed in advance. With the Gordon signing he lowered his position and RIP's value.
    Teams are aware that the Pistons are desperately in need for a C; they also know that Detroit will end in a fiasco if they really start a 3 SG rotation once more this year (Stuck's no real PG yet). Immediately after the BG signing I was sure that JoeD already has a trade in which he only needs to pull the trigger once Gordon is on board. Now I have the feeling he couldn't get BG fast enough without thinking what's about to happen if no team wants an oberpaid one- dimensional player who plays at a position that is loaded with talent all over the league.

    I don't think NBA GMs have the same perspective and information as fans.
