Bills, if digging up old posts while the rest of us lament a wasted opportunity makes you feel smarter than everyone else, then go to it. At least it'll keep you occupied. Simple answers are for simple minds. As has been said, there is plenty of blame to go around, and I'm cool with anyone who wants to include Flip in that. But blaming Flip exclusively is the same as saying that these players (not to mention the league and the opposition) haven't changed one bit since they won it all two seasons ago. Does anybody really believe that? And does anyone really believe that the Larry Brown of 2006 would have had the right answers? BLINDING FLASH OF INSIGHT: Could it be that Larry and our players have simultaneously come down with The Right Way Syndrome - the belief that a title makes their way the only one worth considering? Hmmmmm. Symptoms appear to include pronounced swelling of heads and urinary tracts. Maybe so .... Let's hope generous helpings of ice can at least get the Pistons' heads back to normal size.
