For the last six season the Detroit Pistons have been in the Eastern Conf. Finals. During that time they have appeared in two Finals, winning one and coming up short in seven games the following season. Other EC teams have made deals, signed free agents, and have done whatever necessary to derail the Pistons train to the ECF. Nobody can deny that six straight ECF is a great accompishment, however, championships are what determines dominance, not second place, each and every year. I applaud the ECF appearances, but anything short of a championship this year would be a huge dissapointment to some, however, to others, they did make another ECF.
