    What's your prediction on the ECF now after about 1/3 of the regular season has been played?

    I am going to throw in the wild card and say that the Wiz may be an opponent in the ECF, but the Pistons, Cavs, Heat or Bulls will beat them and end their cinderella season right there though as their defense and undisciplined play won't get them past that point ....you heard it here first:stirthepot:

    I don't think we can take Miami because of the Flip/Riley matchup, but any other -- I think we could slug it out.

    I don't see the Pistons in the ECF. Not automatically. The East is wide open and they cannot dominate it. Doesn't sound like they are "in the mix", sounds like they are "ripe for the picking".

    Just checked the league standings. Pistons are now 2 wins back of Cleveland. Bulls are half a game behind us in the Division.

    A couple more losses and the Pistons will be a 7th or 8th seed. This is where your coach, with three days off, makes a difference. Correct errors, get guys playing better, strategize for the next 2-3 games.

    We have all this staff, it's time for them to GO TO WORK.

    We may be better off in the long run if the Pistons fall to the 6+ seed this year and Flip moves on.

    I don`t have a clue who will be in the EC Finals but I am pretty sure it will not be the Washington Wizards.

    I might be a little hard on them because I am able to follow them here locally, but I dislike this team. They feed their fans this garbage year after year about playing defense yet they come right out of the gate as one of the worst defensive teams in the league.

    All is forgiven because they win and manage to make the playoffs. They have the fans support here because let`s face it, not since Wes Unseld and Elvin Hayes has there been any reason to cheer for Washington basketball.

    So everyone picking the Wiz to be in the EC Finals, I will not say I told you so!!

    I wouldn`t mind having "Agent 0" on my fantasy team though. I need all the help I can get!!!!.............:MusicBigGrin:

    I am taking consideration that the team that makes the most stragetic move before the trade deadline might make the difference in getting into the finals. Chicago has the best options and like Denver, this is their year to go for broke. If I was Chicago, I would pull the trigger.

    However, Detroit has options and they are only missing a small piece which should be available.

    LMAO. Oh yeah. Wizards!!

    Shows you what I know. I honestly forgot.

    I might be slightly biased myself. I'm a huge Arenas fan. But I really do think they have a nice team and with Stern hating defense...

    Got to move Flip Murray for a guy who can run this offense. I never thought Chauncey was this valuable. This team was built so that one guy was not more important than the other. So that if an injury came up maybe the team could survive. A move for a veteran PG needs to be made because the Pistons look absolutely horrible without Chauncey.

    My bad roscoe. At least the Pistons are in the East. Even though they are struggling they can still easily get homecourt advantage. This week the Pistons shouldn't lose. They are at Philly, home against Charlotte, at Atlanta, and home against the Celtics.

    I'd rather take our lumps and get some guys back healthy. Those games are meaningless if we have to rush Billups/Hunter back.

    Speaking of Hunter, I never thought I would say, I hope he heals well. We will need him over Blalock and Flip Jr.

    He is an improvement over both.
