Haha - you make it sound like I'm gonna jump ship. When I first fell in love with basketball it was when Ben came over to Detroit in the first place. I was a free safety for my AAA football team so I loved the idea of defence first - hence Detroit being my favourite team. And LBJ's last performance should weigh as much as his poor performance the night before. I'm not saying the kid right now he's playing his best - but he's playing damn well. I can see fault's in his game and more room for improvement; however, comparing him to the first year when I first saw him play - he's a more complete player now than he was back then. Every year he'll get better and its something to worry about - especially with Shaq dying down. The Pistons 5 could have a problem in the future with LBJ and the Cavs more than the Heat IMO; but I've told everyone I know once, and I'll say it here again - our 5 will always be on top until they decide to retire or the team gets broken-up. What I've realized over my years as a Pistons fan is that I'm not much for one to love an organization; in my tenure at university I've learnt from Baron (economic philosopher) that corporate loyalty is for "suckers and fools". Joe and the organization is great, but the 5 players (Ben, Sheed, Chauncey, Rip and Prince) are what I read, watch and cheer about night in and night out - not the organization.
