It’s Over….Again

Posted · 439 Comments

There is not much to say right now The Cavaliers took the series. It was a dogfight, and I honestly didn’t think these games would go the way they have. Congrats to the Cavs and good luck to in the Finals, you have a tough opponent ahead in the Spurs.

Are the Pistons the better team? I think so, but they didn’t play that way. None of that even matters now anyway. It’s been an enjoyable season, we have plenty to look forward to. What’s in store for the Pistons next season? Plenty…. it’s going to unfold very soon Pistons fans.

David Stern is sleeping well tonight.

    Damn. Detroit just couldn’t get the breaks and big buckets they needed in the last 4 games of this series. Hats off not to Cleveland but to Lebron James. I believe this series ended in game 5 when he just couldn’t miss anything. This team will be back next year and I believe will be even better than this year. Good Luck Cleveland, San Antonio is on a roll.

    I couldnt have said it any better. I KNOW we are the better team but they earned it. They played their heart out for it.

    Im scared to see what happens in the off season.

    I couldn’t sleep twice this week. Game four I was up all night, and Game five which I really thought we had when we went up by six in the fourth. I mean how many fade away one footed jumpers has Lebron ever made? He made more in the fourth and OT’s than I’d seen him in his whole career. San Antonio is a monster of a team and in a way I’m almost glad we don’t have to play them. I probably won’t even watch the finals with the games no doubt being in the low 80’s and more ass kissing of Duncan and LeBron. Makes me sick.

    “David Stern is sleeping well tonight.” Oh, fuck you. Did David Stern make Chumpy Billups and Tayshaun Princess play like shit all series? Did David Stern make the Cavs’ rim larger so Boobie could knock down all those threes? Did David Stern make Joe Dumars hire the most dumbass mulletted head coach ever?

    Grow up.

    She’s not inferring that Stern fixed this series. She’s saying that he is damn happy to have the NBA’s poster boy in its finals. You cleveland fans are such bags of douche your team has sucked for decades and when you literally win the lottery to get Lebron a new group of Cav fans magically emerge. Please we’ve been doing this for years, enjoy your series with the Spurs.

    i know i’m not the only one scratching my head over this one.

    game was going down to the wire, but flip has no idea how to shut down the hot hand.

    he just puts his players on an island and makes them look bad. i haven’t seen the pistons EVER look disorganized, even back in the era of OT, marc macon, and Terry mills

Then i said danm what kind of experince does our coach have cause he was in the same spot and blew it with KG. I know you shouldent blame the coach but how meny times can you blow a confrence finals cause all i know is its time for a change in the coaching staff and not the players

    excellent review natalie . u always say something to cheer me up . “david stern is sleeping well tonight”. lets face it we did crap, they out played us. in order for us to move forward they should be a coaching change: becuase flip saunders seemed as if he didn’t know what the hell he was doing . he’s made poor choices all damn year and i feel he should be gone. we should try to get morris peterson and probably acie law in the draft because we need some back up for chauncey(thats if he is staying) if chauncey goes i don’t know what will happen because rip and the rest of the guys would probably follow

    Changes are coming. I congratulate and respect Lebron for somehow willing his team to victory. This series was won in Game 5.

    Tonight the officiating was a joke. It would be nice if things were consistent on both ends. As Sheed was getting his double T I was screaming at the TV and waking my children. My wife was ready to eject me from the house. Pistons had their opportunities before tonight but the refs completely stopped any chance of momentum developing for us.

    Natalie, you’re a true fan. I can only imagine how you felt after this loss. I’m feeling sick to my stomach right now, and I just want to vomit. What hurts the most is the feeling that the pistons really were the better team…they just played extremely out of character the whole series. I’m at a loss for words after this heart breaking end..

    the team looked foolish out there tonight and its all on flip saunders if you ask me…

    big ups to sheed for callin out the refs, varajoke struck. can’t say i don’t blame the guy if it works… to bad hes going up agains the guys who perfected the flop (no not stockton/malone they invented it) the san antone spurs…

Not to mention the NBA’s obvious poster boy. Grow up

    Our whole squad was going to the rim all night and we get no love at the line. Nothing!!!

    Here, Cavs, here’s more free points. Take twenty more foul shots than the other team. You for some reason deserve it for being in the NBA with one scrub team for like 3 years.

    First off, yes, congratulations to the TRUE Cavaliers fans, as in: Those who have had to endure the Jordan over Ehlo shot in every Gatorade commercial, not all of the FAIRWEATHER fans that are now showing up. We the true Pistons fans know what it’s like to endure frustrations, so to the TRUE Cavs fans, congratulations. To the fairweather ones, please get off need4sheed!

    To the true Pistons fans, it’s time not to start blaming anyone but to rally around Joe Dumars and the players and coaches. I agree that we need a coach who truly understands where the heart of the Pistons truly lies. I’d say, and call me crazy, that BILL LAIMBEER should be tapped in to come back home once again. After all, he built the Detroit Shock into a Champion and he bleeds Red and Blue like nobody.

    I feel sorry about all the players, but some changes need to happen. I think Nazr and C-Webb might need to go. Webb’s knees are betraying him and he paid his dues. Nazr wasn’t a contributor and needs to go. We need to draft strong, I’d say go for Jeff Green from G-town, he’s a good wing forward. I also think we need to get J-Maxx in the starting 5, maybe have him Diesel up some more in the offseason. Whether Billups stays or not, we need to draft a good guard to support him. Acie Law IV is a good option, he’s tough and clutch.

    I’ve been a Pistons fan since 1987, and I won’t give up on the Red and Blue… they didn’t believe in us in 1989, they didn’t believe in us in 2004, and yet we keep finding ways to thrive and survive. We will return to contention. If the “King” wants to claim the Eastern Conference, we won’t stop fighting… the Pistons lost this one, BUT WE’RE FAR FROM DEAD!!!!!!!!! DEEETROIT BASKETBALL ALWAYS AND FOREVER!!!!!!!

    And, Natalie, Keep up the good work. I love your website! Your biggest fan from Colombia!!!!!

    You know the NBA wanted this Finals matchup. They couldnt afford to have 2 defensive teams in the finals again. They baby lebron like dwayne wade last year. Whoever said Flip needs to go, I disagree he took us to one hell of a record last year. I cant beleive the calls they give lebron. Hes the face of the NBA they can let him not win because that wouldnt jack the TV ratings up.

    The seasons over and im exited. Start a countdown NOW. Max is going to be great next year playing all year and chauncey will resign. Joe wouldnt let 2 faces of the franchise leave 2 straight years. CHauncey wouldnt be anything without Rip so everyone dont panic. I think we needed this loss. We needed a wake up call to let us know its not an easy 1-2-3 step anymore we need to play Detroit Basketball like we did against orlando and Chicago. Sheed needs to start getting calls the refs are 100% against him and its obvious. Im happy he got that T tonight to show he cant take it anymore. And finally Tay you need to step up on both ends of the floor. YOu werent are go to guy on D this post season and you could hit the rim to save oyur ass.
    Joe you have a great team dont lose it this summer i think we need to pick up a good back up point because i get scared with flip bringing i up.
    Everyone now lets get ready for 2007-2008.

    The Cavs roster is filled with scrub players that wouldn’t start for the majority of teams in the NBA.

    I’m glad that we now get to watch a ball-hog team from the East go up against the Spurs.

    We took the Spurs to seven. The Cavs are going to be lucky to go 5…

    i like the twat who says i have been a fan since 87, got some good laughs out of that. dp is about the day we draft zeke from indiana, thats when this franchise began, and i’m not down with it ending here by keeping flip saunders.

    worst coaching performance ever, who brings in nazr in the 1st Q? he has barely played since we got c webb. i think the flip murray/lindsay line was good, but pushed it a little far plus flip murray should have been playing a lot more given his performance at the end of the season and the stuggles of our back court. they had no legs, everything came up short…. maybe as a coach you should notice this and switch up the back court a bit dont ya thinK????

    and any mention of laimbeer as a coach in the nba is ridiculous. does it look like our team has training wheels on it ???? do we need a coach with no experience??? what the hell ? you think hes better than flip saudners hahahahaa???

    Its safe to say the best TEAM didnt advance, just the team with the best player. And yes David Stern is sleeping like a baby, just like he did last year when Wade and Shaq anvanced. Unfortunatly the NBA dosent want to see the Pistons in the finals, and now they have their finals filled with stupidstars. But CONGRATS to the Pistons on ANOTHER trip to the east finals, they took us on anoter wild ride and now they have to look onto next season. Theirs going to be a lot of work to be done, most importantly the resigning of Big Shot and Dyese.Chris Webber and the coaching situation are other concerns,I say give BIG Bill Lambier a shot i think he would work out.

    I beleive in my hearts of all hearts that the pistons are just not meant to win. I really think that the league does not want to see the pistons win this one. Maybe because the woman won it maybe because of what think the pistons stand for or well maybe because of the fact that the league wants to see its James win as it did with wade. I really do not knwo I just know that I am starting to lose faith in this league. I will never give up on the piston even know I had this feeling that this year there was no way there would be a game seven of anyone had anything to do with it except the pistons. I could not watch this game but what I did see I did not like. I am the biggest prince fan but he was tired and that is not good cause even he said he would have help which he did not get. I really thik the pistons need it someone whi can help him out and get him rest cause its now been two years in the playoffs where no one on the team is there. I think flip needs to go and the pistons need some support to help tay they have taken him for granteed and well it just ran out. I hope Joe can find some way of helping out this team. I am a pistons fan until the end and will always been. I have already bought my season pistons for next season even know I will not be able to go to very many games with being out west in edmonton but I will be cheering for then as I did tonight. I am really sorry it ended this way but I do not see the pistons going away.

    Man, I have cried for the Pistons so now what. I think they gave up once Rasheed got the technicals I felt his emotion through the TV, he just got feed up the bogus calls they were getting, all that flopping the Cavs do are just ridiculous, the calls just didn’t go the Pistons way, they were emotionally drained, I don’t even think that they were tired, you can’t beat the refs and the players too, they just threw their hands up, I thought the Pistons were doing a good job in the first 3 quarters, but something went terribly wrong in the 4th, I think the decision to rest Rip and Chanucey in the beginning was realy stupid, he should have done that at the end of the 3rd, so maybe Flip Saunders isn’t the right fit for this team, he may need to be let go. I hope that the Pistons do all they can to bring Chauncey (my favorite) back I think that they will be a mess without him and if he leaves I think that the team would have a tough season next year, I think that we may need a center but get it right nest season, Jason Maxiell may need to be a starter. Rasheed is the fire for the team, Tay is the heart, Rip is the soul and Chauncey is the Life. I think that here is a piece missing and that is the Spirit, who could that be???? Hey we should start a petition to let Chauncey know how how much the fan want him to stay, I think that he needs to know that we love him and want him to retire as a Pistonn I got that mad love for that team, I’m all cried out, I’m gonna try to go to sleep, Good night Pistons fans and let’s get ready for nest season. Peace!!!

    First and foremost, Sheed is 99% staying in Detroit. The only team I could imagine willing to pick him up is the Mavericks. He will finish his career as a Piston.

    Chauncey is 50/50 in my book right now.

    Rip and Tayshaun will be used as trade bait. Zach Randolph from Portland is a good possibility. Either Shawn Marion and Amare Stoudemire from the Suns are possibilities. Sound crazy? The Suns have to make a move and Rip would fit in very well with their offense and Tayshaun would prove valuable to them as well. Kevin Garnett could be a possibility as well. It may seem crazy, but Detroit needs to make a big move. The era ended when Ben left and we all know it. 2 out of the remaining 4 will no longer be with us next year. That’s just how it very will could end up. Flip is GONE btw and rightfully so. Look at his playoff performance the last two years. The regular season is great and all, but in the end it is the playoffs that matter. Other than the 1st round, the Pistons have looked awful/mediocre at best in the playoffs for the past two years. Its time for another change.

    At the end of the day all of us Pistons fans have to tip our caps to the LeBrons (and Boobie) on a series well played. We have not seen Pistons basketball played since Game 3 of the Chicago series. There are many people who deserve blame: the refs (so many BS calls), the players (too much discord (or so the rumors say), too much “turning it on” when necessary, some over confidence, i could go on and on), the teflon don himself joe d (horrible moves with nazr and flip), and most of all the coaching staff specifically flip. I just hope as a life long Pistons fan we fall into the dark ages like the old Bad Boys did, but our core is much younger so that seems unlikely. I do think we need a drastic move as in a new impact player added to the core group. That most likely means moving one of our core 4. To me Tay seems untouchable (he is still the future and I don’t see Joe moving the player that most reminds him of himself), Chauncey controls his own destiny, Sheed (who has been my favorite player since his blazer days, back when ben started emerging for us in 00-01 i used to tell my best friend how cool it would be if we somehow traded for sheed and won it all and low and behold…) probably can’t be moved due to age and his contract (thank god cause i like most others here def don’t want to see him gone), leaving rip (who def does carry us on offense but is def the one who can easily be replaced and upgraded to a “star” who gets “star treatment) and our 2 first rounders as bait for one of the big name stars who will be on the block this summer. Personally if kobe became available i would trade rip chauncey and one of the first rounders for him (i hate that guy more than most, even own a kobe is a scumbag tshirt but could you imagine an even more motivated kobe in the east with a sold supporting cast? thats at least one ring guaransheed). But the biggest most vital move and one that i doubt will happen is that Flip must be fired, he has proven now after 3 conferance finals trips that he while he’s a smart coach in terms of plays he can’t make the on the fly decisons required to win in the playoffs, he got outcoached but freakin Mike Brown for god’s sakes. If anyone starts a Fire Flip website, petition, whatever please post it on here so all us disgruntled fans can support it. That all being said the future is cloudy but the Pistons are not dead…yet. If this is the end of an era for our core four, thanks for the ‘ship and all the memories. FIRE FLIP…SAVE SHEED (just in case)

    Anony 1:55,Tayshaun should be traded? Are you stupid? He just had an off series, the players just had an off series. Chauncey will stay because he knows that the Detroit Fans can’t go through our best player leaving again.

    I think we should get Bill Lambier as coach.
    Also, I am going to love Chauncey forever no matter what happens cause he has led this team for a long time. Rip will become a superstar cause I think he knows that he has to score a lot in the playoffs in games like this series.

  94. sheed or bust says:

    I got into a huge argument at the bar i watched the game at about sheed when he was ejected. he contained his composure enough to send james to the line and then when he was fouled out and could do no more he got the tech if not techs saunders should have gotten for having to put up with the calls. the pistons should have responded to that emotion it could have been an extra point for the cavs but they didnt even hit the tech. I think everyone else let him down in a big way. I really thought that was the spark they needed. like when they would start going strong to the basket but they just took second guessed forced jumpers. sooooooooooo pissed. oh and for that douche that wants to see sheed leave. pistons defense is NOTHING with out him. sorry to say but im out when hes gone

  95. Michael says:

    I have never posted here before tonight, but I have to say my peace in the one place I feel it needs to be said. Rasheed did not get ejected because he was mad. He bailed on his team. He knew it was over, and he didn’t have the balls to loose like a man. I am sorry, but there is no need 4 a guy who cannot stand by his teamates. Win as one, loose as one. What NBA player goes after a REF? You asked to get ejected, and you got your wish. You didn’t have to be on the floor, embarresed by a rookie and a college senior. I have bled piston colors since I was a boy, and this franchise has always stood for TEAM. You, Rasheed, are not a part of that. I believed in your passion, that it was derived from a desire for the PISTONS to win a ‘ship. I excused your behavior during the regular season, believing that you only wanted the team to have the best shot at winning. I now see that you have only your own pride as your motivation. You, and the rest of your teammates are paid extrodinary sums of money to PLAY a GAME that most humans enjoy for recreation. You should consider that before you get yourself ‘ejected’ from your next teams’ game.

  96. Anonymous says:

    They can blame sheed, but sheed was the most consistent piston in the playoffs. after game 5 you could tell his emotions were at the breaking point; it started with mcdyess’ ejection in game 5; it was all downhill from there; you do not see that fire from sheed because of the fear of more techs; he was target the last three years by the stern storm troopers; i thought he should have controlled himself better in the game, but what the hell, you all saw the bogus calls; and sheed could not controll himself; god bless the pistons and i respect joe dumars to do what is best for the pistons; i just hope that next years team includes chauncy and sheed; chauncey did not show anything this series, but i still believe in him

    What a soreass loser that guy is. What a disgrace to professional sports. I know some of you like the guy, and I hope you don’t think I’m piling on, but how many meltdowns and unclassy tantrums does he have to have in his career before people realize that he’s just a turd? Since the minute he came into this league, he could have been a Tim Duncan. But instead, he failed to grow as an individual, got by mostly on talent alone and failed to become the best he can be. It’s a shame. I don’t hate him as a person, because I don’t know him – but I do hate how he has treated his NBA career. Such a waste of immense talent. He could have been an All-Time Great, but chose to be an overconfident child. I feel horrible for his Piston teammates that they had to not only witness his meltdown tonight, but to also have to try to hold him back. Such a shame. That all said, good luck to you in the future, Pistons fans. If and when this guy is off your team, I’ll be rooting for you again.

    She may just be getting a handle on sports outside of soccer and tennis, but that was one of the more insightful comments I’ve heard in the while…

    (((Let’s T Sheed in case he breathes hard! Let’s do it twice if he coughs!)))

    Whatever. His reputation preceded him, which is hilarious seeing that refs are supposed to be objective entities. Oh well. It’s great that this was one of the greatest referee performances in conference finals history. Give them the Jerry Krause Memorial Trophy!!!

    Not that I want to start a whole new thread…but I had a feeling our ‘stones may have been whooped by the Spurs (say, 6)…

    I agree that Flip should be fired, I don’t see him fighting for hes team like Brown did it. Seriously that series were fixed, like Sheed said “NBA is all about money”. I won’t be surprised if the finals will be fixed too and Cavs win 4-2. If there will be fair game finals then Spurs will win it in 4.

    &&If mcDyess wasn’t ejected game 5, we would still have a game 7 at our place. This is ridiculous.

    Flip Saunders needs to go. Seriously! The way we guarded L.james, and “boobie” gibson, is not acceptable. Flip’s stategies may work in the regular season, but definetely not in the playoffs.

    Sheed and some key players (Billups, Tay) played pretty bad and well under their usual efficiency. 5-14 and 2 reb in 30 minutes, WTF? Are they already declinin, or poorly coached or what?

    Pistons could and should have won this series, they were the better T-E-A-M. But Cavs DESERVELY advanced. Why?

Everybody knows Varajoe is a flopper. Sheed’s 5th foul was complete BS.

    EVERYONE. RELAX!!!!

    This is the Detroit Pistons we’re talking about. I know saying that might not carry around as much weight as it used to, but were still a very well run and established franchise. Joe Dumars is the best and smartest GM in the NBA. I have complete confidence in his ability to evaluate the roster where it stands and move it forward in the right direction.

    As for Billups, it is out of our hands. The Pistons will offer him a contract to stay, like they did last year with Big Ben, and it will be up to him to stay or leave. Everyone last year was freaking out when our “heart and soul” decided to bolt town, yet Dumars never panicked and still maintained a balanced roster.

    The Pistons aren’t done, believe me. In the Eastern conference, we’ll always be a contender even if there are some young improving teams on the rise. The experience and saavy of this team is too powerful to ignore and it will bring them back. Sure, maybe some changes will need to be made moving forward, however I am able to sleep on it knowing we got the right people in charge of the ship.

    It’ll be an interesting offseason, but it’s up to us Pistons fans to keep on supporting the team and never give up on them.

    As for the finals, regardless if the Pistons were to make, San Antonio is winning the championship. I’m out.

    Okay, I really believe a couple of things are going to happen. 1 thing is for certain, we are going to need a change. Zach Randolf may actually be the key to our success. I dont know if he is a free agent, or not… If he isnt, we could offer Nazr, Delfino, Blalock and a draft pick for Zach. Than sign Grant Hill this off season and you are back to a championship caliber team. If Chauncey were to go for a max deal, only 2 teams have the cap space to get him, Charlotte(who dont need a point gaurd) and Milwaukee whom Chauncey would probably turn down only for the fact that, that team isnt going anywhere. If any Piston starter were to get traded, I hate to say it but I feel Rasheed would be the one to go. For the simple fact that we need front court help. I have faith that Joe D will get us back to the promise land, but i was saying that right before the trade deadline when NOTHING happened. Bonzi wells could have done marvels for this team off the bench, and we just let him rot in Houstan. I know he has a bad attitude, but put him with the right group of players and you see how he dominates teams like San Antonio. I honestly believe that we can pull it off next year if we just tweak the frontcourt, and add Grant Hill or Morris Peterson. Lastly, congratulations to the Cavs. Mostly LeBron James. The Pistons didnt play with the Swagger they had throughout the playoffs. THey played with little heart and use the referees as an out to why they played so horrible. This was a mental game, this series was, and the pistons lost their cool. I do feel the referees had a major impact in the outcome of this series, but you still need to fight through and learn to play through it. Sadly, for the Pistons, they are too cocky for their own good. Pistons are the better TEAM*, LeBron was the best player. Sadly, this is what the NBA wants…. Great Players, not teams.

    My heart goes out to McDyess and Webber and their families. I also feel for Flip Murray, because he made the right choice coming to the better TEAM***

    I agree, Rasheed is a great player and I love him to death, but, if he doesn’t learn to hold his emotion, then it’s done for. I understand that it’s just how he plays, but everytime he argues, the other players have to get in the way, and every tech or ejection he gets hurts the team. He NEEDS to learn how to control himself, otherwise it just gets everyone into trouble. Secondly, Chauncey is not going, he found a home in Detroit, and yes he had a couple bad games, but so did Tay, it’s not over. We still love our Pistons, and instead of freaking out about the past, we just need to move on. The cavs won, and hats off to them, but it’s done with, over, we just all need to move on and not linger on this moment to long. There’s always next year, and i know we said that last year, but the time will come once again.

    Anon 12:23 – definite loser there! That’s just the type of fan the Cavs need. It’s all about the ratings & the Cavs being in the Finals is good for TV. That’s it. I hope the Cavs watch the videos of these past 4 games and realize they didn’t win because they played well, but because they had it handed to them by the refs. Must be nice that LeBron has enough money to write out some paychecks to his “friends.” The obvious no-calls and one-sided fouls – can’t call them for one and not the other – but that’s exactly what happened. I would only wish that refs could get suspended for the horrible ass calls that came out of these games. The OBVIOUS flopping by a guy that apparently can’t stand on his own two feet. I’ve never seen someone fall so many times, and make it look NO WHERE NEAR a real fall. He’s not a player, he a fucking actor!! Get a new job, SideShow Bob! I’ve seen LeBron do so much bitching to the refs, and did you ever see him get T’d up for it? Hell no, because “he’s King.” Bullshit! Everything he’s ever done has been handed to him on a silver platter. Sheed barely opens his mouth and gets ejected. There’s so much special treatment given to LeBron, it’s a joke. He’s NOT MJ and HE NEVER WILL BE!!!! He doesn’t have enough class or talent to be put in the same category. I don’t want to watch the Finals, but the only reason I would is to watch the Cavs get completely pummeled by the Spurs. It’s going to be a sweep, and we all know it. Enjoy the ass-beating and total embarrassment – I’ll witness that anyday!

    This is so disapointing, I can’t believe it.

    I never thought I would say this, but I’m PRAYING for some changes in the off season, cause we need them. We lost because we were cocky. The guys didn’t even seem to care TOO much when they lost, cause they always acted like they could just go out and play whenever they felt like it. Well, they can’t. They’re full of it and I’m sick of it. I miss our old attitudes.

    I’m sick and tired of the attitudes on this team. I LOVE these guys to death, but they are losing the reason that I loved them so much, and that was because they are down to earth and for real. Chauncey is getting on my last nerve. His attitude sucks and he’s full of it and ridiculously cocky. I’m sick of him always trying to be the superstar. (ex six seconds on the clock, DIDN’T need a three, but dribbled till he had about 1 second left, shot a crazy three and didn’t even come close. Can you say drive it in? Can you say PASS?) His little smirks when he makes a bad play are getting old. I used to love Chaunce, but he’s driving me nuts.

    I hate to say it, I really do, but Sheed is getting to me too. He seriously needs to get ahold of himself. His selfish little fits are getting out of hand and helping us lose. I used to love his desire, and actually found his fits funny and entertaining. It’s not funny anymore!!! He’s a grown man, he needs to act like it!! He might be the most talented guy on the team, but he’s too busy complaining to prove it. He screws the whole team over when he throws his little tantrums.

    And Flip, which I think everyone can agree with, just isn’t cutting it. He does not know how to adjust. I mean, come on, if someone’s consistently playing like crap, take them out!! If someone is doing good, leave them in!! Even I can figure that out!!

    I guess there’s still hope for next year. Within two years Maxiell, I believe, will be the star of this team. Unless these Kobe to Pistons rumors are true, which would suck. He’s my second least favorite player in the NBA, only one behind LeBron. I hope we still have CWebb and McDyess for a few years.

    I love how you Piston fans say “Have fun getting blown out by the Spurs, Cavs fans!” Do you not realize that we just humiliated your whole franchise. you guys are DONE. And I love the fact that not only did the Pistons lose, but their poor sportsmanship embarrased their city furthur. Have a great summer jerks!

    Anon 10:36 – back from last nights 12:23 blog I see. Rearing to spread some more bullshit with his unique name changes. Pure loser talent right there. If I were the Pistons, I would have lost my cool waaaaaay before Sheed did. When you’re getting a bunch of bullshit calls, who wouldn’t? It would have been easier to have just walked off, because it was already decided anyway. McDyess never would have been ejected from Game 5 had LeBron not made a huge scene when the “actor” of the team fell to the ground. LeBron ran over his teammate, puffing out his chest, completely trying to start shit. And who do the refs listen to – their beloved LeBron, who else? Detroit came out in the first quarter of Game 6 playing the Deeeetroit basketball we know and love. It wasn’t until Flopper had to be a bitch and try to start something with Webber after a jump ball was called. It changed the whole mood. That’s the only way they can win – by getting the Pistons fired up and out of sorts. Then there’s LeBron again, puffing out his chest and trying to act all hard – you’re NOT GOING TO DO SHIT FAGGOT! Not to mention that the Cavs arena can’t figure out their shit! Their arena had shit falling from the ceiling, balls rolling on the court in the middle of play, shot clocks and scoreboards that couldn’t work for shit!! What the hell? Can’t wait to see what they’ll think of next when the Spurs are in town, pummeling their ass! Maybe the whole damn scoreboard will fall onto the court, or maybe the power will go out and there will be complete darkness. I wouldn’t put it past them. They can’t win by talent, but rather need gimmicks to get them through.

    Love the comment from sammi about Nike and Sprite – ain’t it the truth? hahaha

    Yeah, how about the LeBron’s push on Chauncey that didn’t get called…but then a foul was called when no one even touched LeBron? He threw the ball out. Or how about when LeBron hit Tay right in the face – no call there either. Apparently if your name is LeBron the same rules don’t apply to you.

    I wish all these loser Cav fareweather fans would get off a site that is meant for true Pistons fans. I guess that’s how you have to spend your day – getting revenge for what your team hasn’t achieved in over 60 years. Grow up

    Ok so im pretty tired of everyone pointing fingers at certain players… I cant believe people are saying that Chauncey needs to go he is the leader everyone on the team needs him he makes everyone better… and sheed he is the whole attitude of our team i have never seen anyone play with more passion and emotion for the game then him so anyone saying that chauncey and sheed need to go are completely out of their mind… and even more sad is the lack of trust some of these “fans” have in the Pistons they had a bad series but i didnt hear anyone complaining when we lost two games to Chicago because the end result was that we won that series and if the Pistons would have won the series aginst Lebron not the cavs then half of the people posting stuff on here would not have even said anything i guess we found out who the real Detroit Pistons fans are.

    And for the people saying that Tay needs to be traded you are out of your mind him and Maxiell are the future of the Pistons.

    I agree Malenda – Sheed played the most consistent throughout the whole Playoffs. He does have the most heart – Cav players would only wish to have so much emotion and passion! I do believe he has to start getting himself more under control, because the refs just feed on it. They have come so accustomed to it that they watch and wait for one little move from him, and it’s bullshit. All the mouthing in the world from LeBron never got him anything. What’s up with that? Oh wait, I forgot, he doesn’t count. He scouls and gets the call he’s looking for.

    SPEAKING FROM A UNBIASED POINT OF VIEW:

    I TRUELY BELIEVE THAT THE SERIES WAS CALLED IMPARTIALLY. YES, THE PISTONS DID NOT KNOCK DOWN SHOTS, BUT THERE WERE NUMEROUS CALLS THROUGHOUT THE SERIES THAT ONLY CONFIRMED MY SUSPICIONS (AND WHY WOULDN’T THEY) THAT THE NBA VERY MUCH WANTED THE CAVALIERS IN THE FINALS. 2 YEARS AGO, THE SPURS-PISTONS CHAMPIONSHIP WAS ONE OF THE LOWEST RATED CHAMPIONSHIPS IN A LONG LONG TIME. VAREJAO CONSISTENTLY GOT CALLS WHICH WERE CLEARLY FLOPS, MULTIPLE TIMES FOULS WERE CALLED THAT WERE 100% DISPUTED BY REPLAY EVIDENCE (the foul on Rip on Gibson’s jumper (in Game 4 or 5, I’m not entirely sure) is a perfect example. LeBRON IS NOT HELD TO THE SAME SET OF RULES AS THE REST OF THE PLAYERS ON THE COURT, AND THAT IS UNFAIR. THAT BEING SAID, CLEVELAND STILL PLAYED BETTER THAN A RIDICULOUSLY UNDERACHIEVING PISTONS TEAM (still by far the better team) AND DESERVE TO BE IN THE FINALS. THE CAVS BEST (not counting game 6) ONLY NARROWLY ESCAPED WHAT WAS DETROIT BASKETBALL’S WORST PERFORMANCES IN YEARS.

    You need him on your team to make falling look so bogus, they’re actually called fouls. He’s a complete joke, who runs around with his sideshow hair flopping (pun intended) as if he has never been on a basketball court in his life. You know nothing about the game, except that your team won. And it’s not even a team – it’s a bread winner and some refs. Much luck with the sweep that’s about to come your way – hopefully the bristles don’t scrape you too hard. Wouldn’t want any of the Cavs to actually play some real basketball.

    Whoo. First time posting since before the game started. I did what I did last year when were in a 2-3 hole: I recorded the game and went to a movie. I came home, got on NBA.com and literally fell to my knees. I couldn’t believe it. I had so much confidence and faith that we would win Game 6. Not only did we lose but we lost by 16?! Instant tears, guys. I haven’t found the courage to watch it and I don’t think I will.

    *Kobe to Detroit? HEEELLLL NO! That would make it damn near impossible to watch single game of next season.

    *Trade ‘Sheed, Tay? Uh-uh. The crazy/funny/unique pieces to this puzzle that Joe D. put together is what makes this team so great. The Pistons without ‘Sheed and Tayshaun…don’t even want to think about it.

    *Fire Flip? I could probably live with that though I don’t know if I feel he was the reason Detroit lost. Looks like from the boxscore that we weren’t hitting too many shots. Chauncey only took 7? Eek. That spells disaster right there. And what was with the huge rebound disparity?

    *What happened in the 1st quarter when 3 players (2 Pistons, 1 Cav) got techs?

    *Rip 29 points? I LOVE YOU, RICHARD HAMILTON!

    *Like I said, I don’t think I have the guts to watch the game so I don’t know if it was bullshit calls or non-calls that killed us but I see that we took like 20 less free throws. Curious…

    *And anony 1:34: I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder but.. that’s messed up! lol

    *In response to the Cavs fan who left out the “G”…wow. That’s all I have to say about that.

    i bet none of you gave a crap about the cavs until they got this far, and didnt start commenting til the cavs started winning.
    FUNNY ISNT IT!

    thank goodness for rip hamilton
    second time this series he is the only one that had something going,and i realize tay hasnt been as good, but that is no reason to trade him, he has been on the team for 5 years, and all 5 he went to the conference finals, and rasheed needed to flip out, someone had to tell the refs about themselves, but that was nothing compared to the paycheck they are getting from LEBRON.

    saying we are crying, or whatever, but unlike you guys we dont walk around with our heads up our A$$es cause we dont have a player that everyone had to give the ball to, and dont even get me started on varajao and ilgauskas

    David Stern did sleep good last night knowing that the Pistons lost. I kno he didn’t make them play like sh*t, I believe Flip Saunders did. There are only 3 people on the team that should be upset rite now. That’s Rip, Dyess & C-Webb. Rip played his heart out and his teammates couldn’t back him up. I really believe this series was fixed. It’s no way that the Cavs should have shot almost 40 points from the free throw and the Pistons only have 10. I also believe that there will be a new coach on the sidelines because the only thing Flip has brought us is play-off turmoil. Before he came we made it to the Finals back to back and I think Joey D wants to get back to that. As for the Chauncey situation, he wouldn’t give heart ache to the Detroit fans like Ben did last year and the franchise is almost built around the back court and if Chauncey left who could fill his shoes? Big Ups to LeBron on making it to the finals, But THEY WILL NOT WIN!! SPURS WILL SWEEP!!!

    I have been a lifelong Clevelander, and Cavs fan and we lifelong Cavs fans know a little about heartache. We also know the feeling of thinking that one player (Jordan) was getting favor with the refs. So we understand your pain, but at the same time, as a team that has won championships, understand our joy. I think no matter how you cut it the Cavs played better basketball in this series. Lebron in game 5, that had nothing to do with refs, but just his pure drive to will his team to victory. Gibson hitting 5 threes, again nothing to do with refs. The Pistons were so intent on stopping Lebron that they never adjusted when Gibson got hot. I agree with every fan that says that this was a poorly coached conference finals for the pistons. Every adjustment that was made seemed to come a day late.

    I don’t think the Pistons should blow up the team, they are still very talented, and capable of winning it all, but a better coach is in order.

    So as we attempt to represent the East, and yes the Pistons also, I hope that maybe a couple of you can get behind the team that was not suppose to be here, coming from the conference that is suppose to be inferior to the West. For Pistons fans and Cavs fans have a lot more in common then you think…

    I found it very amusing that cavs fans didnt wear “GO CAVS!” shirts or “CAVS ALL THE WAY!” but instead they wore “BEAT DETROIT” and thats exactly what the did.

    I don’t believe the Pistons lost. i think that the cavs won. lebron james is a monster late in the game as showcased by game 5. I believe that if the cavs play as well as they did against the Pistons that they can put up a fight against the Spurs. It’s sad to see the Pistons lose especially when you stay up every night till 11 or 12 and sacrifice the day after just to watch the games. I’m happy for cleveland because it was a long time coming. Good luck cavs.

    Lifelong Cavs fan again,

    Honestly I like the Pistons. I think they play good hard basketball. But again I just think it seemed as if the Cavs wanted it more. I actually hope these two teams can get some respect for the Eastern Conference. See the way I feel, and this is for the lifelong Pistons fans, is the way you guys must have felt to finally get past the Celtics. I know, and the Cavs know, this was no changing of the guard. The Pistons (barring blowing the team up) will still be the team to beat in the east next year, and with this I know they are going to be very hungry. I hope this turns in a great rivalry for the next couple of years.

    Again I know losing this series was hard, but now more than ever not just the Cavs but the East needs to stick together. No matter, I would root for whatever team won the east because I know the lack of respect that we as a conference get. I know you don’t see it now, but we do have a lot in common…

    To the person who said the Browns suck, I hope you are not a Lions fan, cause again we in the sucking aspect, have a lot in common.

    Signed,

    Lifelong Cavs Fan

    i am very sadden about the turn of events that has happened in this series. i cried my eyes out because we were cheated. deep in my heart, the pistons had this is in the bank and unfortunately the robbers (david stern, the refs, sprite, and nike) stole the money. first of all, the whole entity of the game of basketball has changed with the zero tolerance(which i feel targeted sheed), and now with the popularity contest. it saddens me that you don’t see real teams play anymore but name brands. i hope you know that the cavs are going to win, so lebron will look like the hero of the game as of last year when name brands shaq and wade, were supposedly the carriers of the team. on the fact of sheed you people have to realize this man is an emotional player and he is not selling himself short. he plays the game not for the money or the fame but for the love of basketball. you don’t see him every second on tv saying “you are about to be subleymonized” with a lemon mask on his head with a lemon gun, or him on tv acting like a old man with grey hair playing basketball. and for micheal who said rasheed doesnt support his team by quitting, give me a break this man is frustrated because our team has been treated like chicken shit since the days of the bad boys. if you want to point out a true quitter point out lebron james when he was losing to the team (i think the nuggets) and his ass just walked off the court before the game was over. now that is want you call a quitter. detroit pistons fans even though this is a heart jerker don’t give up the faith because i know i am not. our team Has exemplified so much like poise, teamwork, and one love. everybody wants to be like us that is why they hate us. it has been that way and it always will be this will only make us stronger

    and like uyen said which put a smile on my face i hope they can get chuck daly that would be bomb
    and ana 12:16 my heart also goes to mydiggity and c webb. i wanted the same for them and they were so so close and i pray that dyess and webb and the rest of the pistons stay because next year we closing up shop. this is going to be an empowering season for the pistons because i know they are mad about being mistreated and underrated year after year by some stupidstar.

    and even though i promised myself that i wasn’t going to root for any other team i am going to root for the other enemy the spurs who are a mirror image of the pistons because they are a team so spurs do it for the pistons and whop the cavs or i mean lebrons ass and show him that one man is not a team

    MUCH LOVE TO ALL MY PISTONS FANS AND KEEP THE FAITH WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR AND NO FIGHTING REMEMBER US PISTONS FANS HAVE TO STICK TOGETHER AND NATALIE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK GIRL YOU NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE ME.

    Greetings loyal Pistons fans. So, yes, I have been a fan since 1987. That’s when I was able to watch TV in South America so sue me. Plus, I think some of us would appreciate it if Cleveland fans would not embarrass the entire Ohio school system by taking their time to spell correctly (then again, what do I know? I’m just some stupid foreigner… working on a PhD, my English must suck right?).

    There’s a sense of historic irony here: The Pistons lost their funk in game 6 thanks to the very thing they helped create: THE SHOT CLOCK – It was thanks to the antics of the Fort Wayne Pistons in one game that the NBA instituted the shot clock.

    By the way, Cavs fans, please ask for someone to fix the Q, make some Loans maybe and buy some good scoreboards and shot clocks. 21 minute delay? The only joke bigger that than is Flopper’s hair!!!!

    After that rant, basketball: The Pistons have been left for dead before. Once MJ started ruling the East, nobody gave the DP a chance to return to prominence. But, they made it. What makes you think it won’t happen again? I mean, the Pistons know how to get back on top. They have a GM that bleeds Red and Blue in Joe D. When I suggested Laimbeer is based on historical evidence: He was part of the Bad Boys, he knows the essence of “Deetroit Basketball.” Plus, he took a WNBA team like the Shock and has made them contenders. We need a coach who understands what makes DP basketball unique: Tough defense, relentless attitude, selflessness, and HEART. Please show me one coach who has them all and I’ll rally behind him as our new coach.

    As per the players, I don’t expect Joe D to part ways with Tay, after all he drafted him. I said that J-Maxx can be part of the starting 5. That, or really tune him up so that he can actually be “The Microwave 2.0,” not a bad role either. My bets for off-season moves: Nazr for sure, maybe Hunter or Dale Davis, perhaps Blaylock too. I still think we should hold on to Delfino, he could be our version of Manu Ginobili, not a bad thing to have off the bench either. I mean, we have a decent bench with McDyess, J-Maxx and Delfino. What we need is better backups for Chauncey and Rip. Maybe draft a good guard, I still think Acie Law is a good choice.

    Now, what Detroit REALLY needs to do is find a strong post player. Rasheed is more effective when he’s a supporting post player who double-teams and can release himself from the boards to take mid-range shots and 3-pointers. C-Webb, WHEN HE WAS IN EARLY PHILLY SHAPE, would’ve been perfect. But, I said it before, his knees have figured him out. Although he played valiantly this series, he might not be what we need right now. I’d say use the 2nd draft choice and pick a strong post player, and make some deals to get another veteran post player.

    I agree that the Pistons lost mainly because they were their own worse enemy. The Cavs beat us, but we let them play their game and Flip didn’t adjust quickly enough. I’m not a Spurs fan by any means, but I admit that they’re better coached than we are, and if LeBron was whining whenever McDyess messed with Varejoke’s hair (and he’s got every right as team captain… God only knows how much money Flopper spends in keeping his hair shiny!), he’s got another thing coming when he deals with Bowen, Manu, and Cheap Shot Rob…

    Oh, and to the Cavs fans, when we make fun of LeBron’s nailbiting is because it’s not cool. Sorry, that’s plain nasty and doesn’t make him more human or approachable.

    Cheers and long live DETROIT BASKETBALL

    the bottom line is that a lot fans of every losing team seems to believe the refs had it in for them. The Warriors fans thought this, the Jazz fans thought this, the mavericks fans thought this, the Suns fans thought this, etc. I honestly don’t believe the refs have it in for any team or are concerned with making sure a marketable player makes it to the finals. I think teams that aren’t worthy of advancing play just bad enough that questionable calls can break them. The Pistons weren’t good enough this year and the Cavs peaked at the right time and got breakout games from Gibson when they needed it most.

    this completlymade me sick, i feel like absolute shit. i dont know why, but this pistons loss hurts the hardest. what happened? how did everything that was so good get so bad? we were the hottest team in the league. we hadnt lost 4 in a row all year. lebron hasnt ever shot the ball that well. sure the refs were HORRIBLE in game 6, but we never should have let it get to be elimination game. flip saunders was awful. how can he let this happen 2 strait years? the pistons have way to much talent for this to happen back to back years. resign billups, adda big man, draft an athlete, get a new coach, and then we will be back, if not then i just dont know.

    Geez, I read a lot of these comments. Seriously Detroit fans, just ignore the ignorant Cavs fan(s). Y’all have nothing to be ashamed of. Yeah you got beat, but they haven’t won anything for a long time. And Cavs fans on here gloating, you’re pathetic. I remember when the Lakers got beat by the Spurs in ’03 ending their run. I was on some msg boards and I went on there coz I said I would coz if I was boasting when we did good, I had to take it when we messed up. Seriously, Detroit, y’all got a GM who doesn’t panic (like your team). I think the team isn’t to blame, yeah Tay had a bad series and I did see some uncharacteristic mistakes by Chauncey. No one’s perfect. My thing is I saw no urgency from your coach. That was really worrying. I was saying before Game 5 you guys needed Maxiell starting. I don’t know Amir Johnson although I’ve read some positive things about him. But really, well, as a Laker fan, I’ve never had a lot of respect for CWebb. He never seems to reach potential. Yeah, he’s talented, but his teams never seem to win. Y’all need an injection of some energy and CWebb always has that hangdog look. A vet team like yours needs some youthful energy. But y’all got the best, or one of the top two probably in Joe D. And please, yeah, I hope really, I don’t hate anyone enough to wish this one them, don’t get Kobe. He is the antithesis of your team. The teamwork that you guys exemplify like the Spurs is the reason I found this site. I’m a Laker fan, but if Kobe’s ego was just a bit smaller than the country of Morocco, we might have about 6 or 7 championships now…instead, our discontent imploded the team. Anyway, y’all be back De-troit. You need some tinkering, and imo, a new coach, but not the implosion of your team…..anyway, don’t trip. And Cavs fans, don’t get too happy yet. LeBron seemed to be playing a sometimes passionless team (I blame Flip for that). The Spurs will be ready. Believe that. Y’all ain’t gonna win more than 2 games, and i don’t even believe that. I think it’ll be over in 5.

    Uyen,

    I know you are gonna be annoyed and even more pissed off when everyone starts rubbin it in again but dont let it get to your head. At least try not to. Just remember we cant win it every year and I know we havent won it since ’04 but our time will come again and very soon. I honestly believe next year is our year no matter what happens in the off season. I know we all thought this year was goin to be it but I HATE to admit it, deep down inside I kinda knew we werent gonna win it though I convinced myself we were. While I knew it wasnt goin to be our year, something deep down was tellin me ’08 will be our year to cheer. Like I said I HATE to admit that I wasnt 100% confident. I dont know what that shows about me. I hope you guys dont think Im not a diehard PISTONS fan because I am and I know I am. But it was a feelin I had since the begining of this season. When we started winning some games and CWEBB came along and good things started to happen, I thought yes we are, we’re gonna win the ‘ship.. but still I wasnt confident from the begining. Like my heart wasnt all there.. it was in 2008 (and I know it might sound crazy, but I’m bein honest. And I cant emphasize enough how much I HATE to admit what I just said.

    (sorry its soo long.)

  412. jess says:

    but Im still hopin and prayin and wishin that Chauncey will stay and nothin will happen with Rip, Tay, and SHEED.. but im also hopin for new coach..

  416. dave says:

    It’s so damn obvious that Stern wanted LeBron to make the finals. The game’s close going into the 4th and all of a sudden everything goes crazy, we were in the penalty with like 9 minutes left, and then got 3 quick fouls for 6 FTs, at one point in the 4th we had 9 fouls to the cavs 2. that’s impossible, with a team as good as the pistons. no possible way that’s consistent officiating. Lebron is this year’s Dwayne Wade, a pretty boy easy to market to the general public, so let’s give him a free ticket to the finals as long as he can make his FTs. shit, he made how many field goals? 2? does anyone else think we got Techs and defensive 3-seconds so lebron could get free points. Or that the reason we went into the penalty so fast in the 3rd and 4th quarters was to ensure Lebron got enough points to make him sound great. what a horrible way to end the season. you know that scene in the first matrix movie, when the bad guy starts unplugging people and trying to kill neo, and right when switch finds out shes going to die, she gets this blank sad disbelieveing, totally unprepared look on her face and says “not like this… not like this” and then falls to the ground dead.
    That’s how i felt about this game. if the pistons season is going to end, and possible chauncey’s #1 jersey and this entire era of dominance over the east, “Not like this.” not like this. what a sick way to watch it all end … free throws, ugly haircuts from gooden and varajoe, ridiculous flops, ejections, a gross amount of turnovers, bad coaching, lebron making free throw after free throw, the commentators singing his praises for plays that i’ve seen carlos delfino do a dozen times, lebron doing that retarted grimace/stare crap like the immature asshole he is, the obvious frustration on chauncey, rip and tay’s faces, why the crap did nazr mohammed play in the first quarter and watching webber walk around in slow motion like it was an exhibition game. what a sad sad ending to this season.
    Not like this.

    another thought … lebron is no where near michael jordan, or even kobe bryant. i won’t even consider comparing him to kobe until after he has won 3 rings. after 5 rings, we can talk about comparing him with MJ. 5 rings from now that shit can start. tim duncan and tony parker are going to wipe the floor with these idiots, and bruce bowen is going to shut lebron down to complete shit. i’d like to see varajoe try flopping on a real post player like tim duncan, or zildranus’s 60year old face try and stop duncan from scoring 22 and grabbing 13 boards and winning his 4th ring. cleveland can’t stop him, they can’t win this series, too bad Stern, there’s nothing you can possibly do to win Lebron this series. but i’m sure you’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen every year until someone else comes along.

    cleveland fans, you suck and you have no class.

    this is going to be a long, scary offseason. maybe chauncey will be a sellout and go to the bulls.

    my guesses are this:
    -chauncey signs with the bucks
    -the pistons try and get leandro barbosa from the suns
    -webber’s done
    -max and amir are regular players next year
    -with the two first round picks we get a point guard and a big center
    -rip tay and sheed stick around
    -saunders is GONE!
    -next year we finish with 43 wins, the 4th seed and lose in the second round to the bulls.

    peace out detroit fans.

    Pistons may be forced to make changes after playoff meltdown

    By LARRY LAGE,
    AP Sports Writer

    DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Pistons seem to be slipping from great to good, leading to questions about a nucleus that has been kept together since winning a title in 2004 and a coach that had a tough act to follow.

    Detroit dropped out of the playoffs on the road in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals for the second straight year after consecutive trips to the NBA finals.

    “The season’s a failure,” Rasheed Wallace said after the Cleveland Cavaliers eliminated Detroit with a 98-82 win Saturday night.

    Wallace’s teammates and the rest of the franchise would probably agree with his blunt assessment.

    The Pistons earned top seeding in the Eastern Conference playoffs for the second straight year and seemed to be rolling with a 7-0 start, matching a franchise record.

    Then, they lost two of the last three games against the Chicago Bulls in the second round and collapsed against the Cavs, blowing a 2-0 lead in the conference finals for just the third time in NBA history.

    “I don’t really care about that,” Chauncey Billups said. “I’m just mad we lost four straight games to a team that I felt wasn’t better than us.

    “But obviously, they were better than us this week.”

    Next year, the up-and-coming Cavs and Bulls will likely improve.

    To keep up with their Central Division rivals, the Pistons might be forced to shake up a roster that has had a lot of success. Wallace, Billups, Richard Hamilton and Tayshaun Prince created the kind of continuity rarely seen in professional sports.

    The Pistons won a championship, fell just short of repeating, and advanced to the conference finals five straight years – a streak trailing only one team over the past 20-plus years.

    “I think its unbelievable,” New Jersey Nets coach Lawrence Frank said during this postseason. “They’ve had three different coaches. Their core has stayed together for the most part. They lost (Ben) Wallace, but it is such a tremendous credit to that organization to be at such a high level year in and year out.”

    But Pistons president of basketball operations Joe Dumars was unhappy about the way the season unraveled in the playoffs, and he’s an executive with a history of making bold moves.

    Dumars fired Rick Carlisle after two successful seasons and bought out Larry Brown following two straight trips to the NBA finals.

    Coach Flip Saunders set a franchise record by winning 117 games in his first two regular seasons, beating Brown’s mark by nine games and Carlisle’s by 17. But the Pistons fell short of expectations and their goals in both of their postseasons with a coach that struggled in the playoffs with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

    “He’s in a tough situation,” Billups said. “Could he have done some things differently? Probably so. Could I? Yeah. So could Sheed and Tay and go down the line. It’s unfair to point the finger at one person.”

    Billups was the NBA finals MVP three years ago and an All-Star in each of the next two seasons, but his lackluster play in the conference finals the last two years was tough for the team to overcome.

    “I played as hard as I could, but I didn’t play that great,” he said after averaging 15.3 points, 3.5 assists and 3.8 turnovers against the Cavs. “I’m sure some other guys in this locker room could say the same thing.”

    Billups, who will be one of the NBA’s top free agents this summer, wants to return to Detroit if its offer is competitive with other offers.

    “Everyone knows I love this team, this town, being a Piston,” he said. “I really grew up here, made a name for myself: All-Star, champion, MVP. We’ll see how it works out.”

    Dumars will also have to decide if he wants to re-sign free agent Chris Webber, who hinted that retirement might be an option.

    “I don’t want to be in a situation where I’m just going through the motions, letting everything be said about me,” said the 34-year-old center, whose skills and health have diminished in recent years.

    The Pistons have a young player, forward Jason Maxiell, on the verge of contributing consistently, and they have a chance to add more youth with the 15th and 27th overall picks in the draft later this month.

    While significant change seems to be certain, Billups said a few more great years are possible if the nucleus is kept together.

    “We’re definitely an elite ballclub,” he insisted. “It’s just crazy how thin of a line it is from being one of the best teams in the league to people looking at you like, ‘They’re done.’ I’ll still take my chances with anybody in this league in a series.”

    Just thought id pop in here and post how very sad i still am….
    Ive read all the posts and i see im not the only one…
    I love THESE pistons…ive watchd the pistons for a long time. i’ve never really got hooked until THESE pistons. their is just something special about THESE pistons

    I allowed my 5 yr old to fall in love w a player that might decide to leave us…How do you explain to a 5 year old that its a bussiness and that stuff just happend… He even went to the mini pistons camp and we are planning on him going to the full camp this summer.
    the whole time we were at the camp he kept saying to me..”look mom im going to be a star like Billups.”

    those words haunt me now.

    He cant leave us…
    that will just crush my 5 yr old…heck it will crush me!

    its not that they lost game 6 that ended their run. Its the changes that gets me going…im just not good w change… Im just not ok w Billups leaving…If he goes… Rip is right behind him.. I cant decide whihc would be more painful. the combination would be brutal.
    What can i say im emotional attached…they grabbed hold of my heart in a weird way( even more than the years before) last season.
    I was at the only game i got a chance to see last season. when my father passed away. i got the call as i was leaving the game.
    It for me was like my dad’s last gift. they never got a hold of me until after the game. they tried to tho through the palace staff etc.
    I gues it was meant to be at that game at that moment in time.
    they became my comfort. they gave me something to have hope in.

    Strange i know but its funny the things one holds on to when facing death…

    I Love THESE pistons..

    Stay w us Billups your leaving will be like facing another death.

    I think people should chill out. I do think the officiating in the nba is comical but that being said, the pistons brought this on themselves! They played like highschool kids! Hell the wizards and nets played better against the cavs then we did! And the wizards were missing two vital players. I can assure you of this san antonio won’t choke! Three rings tell me that.They should take it all this year unless the games are really called lopsided , in that case we need to get rid of stern, he’s going to turn this sport into a joke! Anyone agree?

    congrats to the cavs.
    i would say the refs had something to do with the games because after game two no call on lbj stern had to have told the refs to start calling fouls, because in game 5 when lebron drives to the hole and falls down without anyone touching him and a foul is called u know stern told the refs to give a back a game. being that said, to all piston fans- give me a break the pistons played old just like they did against the heat last year. tell me what coaching has to do with letting a guy drive to the basket not once but three times in game 5. when your own players are throwing the ball away. and billups shoot the ball to score not to get a cheap-ass foul. “i saw a guy trailing me hard and i thought could get some contact. there was some but not enough to get a call.” then he does it again on snow trying to get snow to jump into him when he shot the three to possibly win the game. you want to cry when varejo flops. flopping will always be part of the game it is an art and if you are great at it u can help your team win just ask “the mailman” malone. so wallace thought he flopped in game 6 don’t go down the court and throw lebron to the floor and foul out of the game when your team needs you. also, the pistons beat the cavs last year in game 7 because they just man-handled lebron and did not let him do what he wanted to do. but this year they tried the same thing in game 6 but the cavs had a answer with gibson’s 3s. it was a great series and if lebron doesn’t turn in his greatest game of his nba career the pistons win game 5. but all-in-all the cavs over came the 0-2 start and played just enough better than the pistons to win.

    I honestly do not think that the pistons are done. So what if they lost this year? San Antonio doesn’t win every single year. What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. I believe that Joe Dumars will make necessary changes for the pistons. At this point, saunders needs to be fired, webber needs to retire. I think if Chauncey leaves the pistons, the worst thing that could happen is that Rip will be sad and that might affect his performance, and pistons fans won’t be happy. In addition, I doubt that Chauncey can find a better team or a better environment beside Detroit. I hope he doesnt leave even if the Bucks pay him crapload of money. It’s not like Chauncey’s a rookie and needs money. If he stays with detroit, he’ll just earn even more respect and affection from fans and his teammates. With all that said, may God bless Dumars in his decisions.

    I wonder if the pistons or Dumars ever read the comments on this site? =) i think they should. I’ll be mad if saunders stays with the pistons. I wonder what’s going through the pistons’ minds right now? must be tough. I hope Chauncey will stay. I mean, if he stays despite the ridiculous money offered by other teams, Chauncey will truly look like a hero in Detroit!! I mean he’ll be the loyal player who sticks with his team, unlike Ben W. Anyways, if you’re reading chauncey, please refuse the dough and stay!!! =)

    WE NEED LARRY BROWN BACK, MORE MINUTES FROM JASON MAXIELL, AND MORE OF A POST UP AND/OR A DEFENSIVE PRESENCE DOWN LOW, THE PISTONS GIVE UP WAY TOO MANY LAYUPS

    am i the only one who feels incredibly sad for dyess? the poor guy seemed to want it more than anyone else on the team, played his heart out and actually showed emotion and a sense of urgency. i wanted him to get a championship so bad. i hope he resigns next year…

    I for one, am very pissed off and upset that we let a rookie torch us and blow us out of the playoffs. This was the absolute worse way to go out of the playoffs. We had an absolute failure season this year. We MUST fire Flip and DRAFT Joakim Noah.

    P.S. I hope for God that the Spurs win.

    i wish there was a miracle that put us in the finals tonight lol that would be so great and that article somebody just typed up scares me. what chauncey said about if the offer is right. that reminds me of ben wallace and just don’t want him to roll out that way. people here in detroit has so much love for that man. and like everybody on that team, they feel like family to me and i feel like i know them personally so if he leaves i think i might cry. when ben wallace left i was upset and said we couldn’t make it without him but then i realized that he is one player and that we could do it. and even though we didn’t make it to the finals look how far we got without him, now i will say that if mr big shot leaves we wont get that far. so please stay until you can’t play anymore chauncey dont break up this happy family we love you all and you are the best and unfortunately the best team got cheated so we will have to show them next year and show them that this dynasty is never going to end just because some poster child won. also convince mcdyess and webber to stay because word on the street is they getting that ring next year 2008 babay.

    love you pistons keep hope alive and don’t give up the faith

    The refs are not at fault, Pistons fans, I am one too, but you’ll can’t keep blaming it on the refs or all the blame on Flip Saunders either. It’s the players, they just didn’t have the fire in them. Fatigue? Can’t use that excuse again either. Cleveland outplayed us in this series, even in game 1 and 2, we truly just got lucky honestly. Our whole team is better than Cleveland no doubt. Lebron is a superstar and a heck of a player. I suspect he is the next Michael Jordan. He’s on that path anyway. Even though we lost, I still feel our TEAM is better than theirs. San Antonio are like Detroit except they play better defense, are in control of their emotions more, and do not play catch up as often. The Spurs and Pistons are almost like twins. Anyhow, Spurs in 4!

    When the 4th qtr came around, we just basically lost it in the beginning right there, Boobie started banking in 3’s, we were down 81-69 and it started looking bad. On top of that, Sheed gets fouled out and decides to just go off the hook so he can get the heck out of the game and don’t have to witness defeat. I love Rasheed on the team but he has to not go over the edge, there was like 10 minutes left when he got thrown out, we could still have won the game, there was plenty of time left to make a run.

    I believe the pistons are through as the go to work team. It seems to me with the pistons keeping our same head couch,dumars has sent up a white flag as far as our players are concerned. I guess it’s time to total this team and start fresh.
