The 14-26 Pistons are hosting Rasheed Wallace and the 27-12 Boston Celtics tonight at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
For those of you who aren’t in the know about the Celtics, they will play a 10th straight game without Kevin Gartett when Wallace take court in Green for the first time at The Palace.

“He’ll get some cheers, and he’ll get some boos. It’ll make for some exciting basketball, since he’s one of those guys who had never fouled anyone since he has been in the league.
“He leads by example. He’s always telling guys where they need to be, making sure everyone is on the right page and always talking; letting you know where the help is coming from and where to send your man so you can get help. I think Boston is a great fit for him.”
No Will Bynum, but it’s possible we see Ben Gordon and Tayshaun Prince.

It’s going to be a pretty exciting night for me, I have Rasheed’s Return, a new Pistons themed Flip Video and I get to meet @grantiscool a Pistons fan who traveled all the way from Australia to finally take a game in at The Palace of Auburn Hills. Not only will this be Grant’s first Pistons game, it will be the first time he’s been to an NBA game. Just goes to show you that you don’t have to be form the D to truly be a Pistons fan.
I’m sure I’ll have a tweet or two in me, and you can bet Im going to do my best to get you some video. And don’t even ask, there will be nothing but cheers from me when I see Sheed.
