    Yup, down with Larry Brown, the last guy to lead Detroit to a 'ship.

    He may have lead Detroit to a 'ship, but he is not a good person.

    I'd have to agree....I'd happily trade the title for a consistent era of good people.

    I still don't believe that Larry Brown led us to ANYTHING.

    We were struggling along at .500 WITH LARRY before we traded for Rasheed Wallace. It wasn't until after we acquired Rasheed Wallace that we went 20-6 and made our way through the playoffs. That Pistons team was HUNGRY and RIGHT THERE before LB got here. I don't even thing LB did a great job coaching during that playoff run. He allowed an INFERIOR NJ team to take us to 7 games just because his stubborness and EGO refused to play Okur over Williamson against a WEAK NJ FRONTCOURT.

    IMO: We won DESPITE HAVE LB as our coach. Everyone is entitled to an opinion and you don't have to agree. Your certainly entitled you whatever you choose to believe. This just happens to be my belief.

    Is there any way to vote a coach out of the Hall of Fame? Larry seems to be getting worse.

    Uh, guys, this is the Suns/Spurs thread. Aside from debating LB's contributions to the Spurs back in the Rod Strickland era, I think we should leave Larry out of it.

    I actually used to really like Rod Strickland. He was a good PG and was pretty adept at breaking down a defense and getting in the lane. Was Vinnie Del Negro there with him as well or was he a few years away?

    Don't forget, he didn't play Darko.

    It just occurred to me that this series is Bad Boys vs. Showtime. Kinda.

    Nash just made a SICK pass to Amare. I'm totally into this game.

    Bavetta blows another call.

    What a joke.

    It's like he's guessing instead of observing. Maybe he needs an eye exam.

    Right now, Barbosa couldn't throw the ball into the ocean.

    End of the third, SA up 14. Series over IMO.

    Spurs up 14 after the 3rd. He did blow that one call, but I don't think the officiating's been much of a factor overall here.

    I'm pretty pissed off by articles like this one, about how this series has an asterisk, it's tainted, etc. It's been a big theme on PTI as well this week. Where the heck were these guys last year when the refs handed Game 5 of the Finals to Miami on a platter? That was SO MUCH WORSE in every way than this, which amounts to people wanting a clear-cut rule changed on the fly by the commissioner's fiat.

    Roscoe said earlier that this is Showtime vs. The Bad Boys, and I totally agree. Outside of Detroit, people really loathed the Pistons and their dirty tactics. Personally, I loved it.

    Just like the Bad Boys, this style of ball wins games, and during the playoffs, tough teams impose their will on smaller "finesse" teams. I may be one of the few people on this board, but I'm glad the Spurs are kicking a** in the West. If the Pistons and Spurs make it to the finals, it should be a great series. The Pistons are going to have to find their fight without Ben Wallace. Maybe some extended minutes for The Goon Squad?

    Not clear why D'Antoni left Nash on the bench so long around the third / fourth quarter break. The comeback only started once he came back in. Surely he could have played more than 38 in the Suns season ending game. Bad mistake.

    I couldn`t agree more.

    What a perfect time for DD and Maxiel to find that midseason form against a team like the Spurs.

    One thing is certain, they will not back down. The Spurs would go toe to toe with the Pistons..........

    That would be goooooooood!!!!:MusicBigGrin:
