Here goes another addition to my Video section on  As I was rifling though my archives I didn’t realize just how funny some of these 24 seconds bit were.  Who knew Sheed disliked cauliflower so much?

What I didn’t realize though was if I went through a  list of online sportsbook reviews  that Jason Maxiell would make so many appearances and Rip Hamilton really wanted to be a rap star.

Enjoy the 24 Second Vault

It’s pretty hard to come back in a game when the opposing team makes their first 14 shots and are shooting 80% at the half. But give your Pistons and A for effort for keeping this game close when the Spurs were playing some great basketball.

The Spurs were up by 19 points in the first half, and 14 with eight minutes to go, but Detroit kept fighting getting within 5 points late in the fourth quarter.

Key Points:

  • Though this one gets added to the L column with the rest, it’s hard not to be proud of the team for the fight. And it’s not easy to forget just how hard it has been to be proud about anything associated with this team lately.
  • The 104-111 loss gave the Spurs their first season sweep of Detroit in four years.
  • T-Mac back on court an in the starting lineup for Detroit boded well for the Pistons. T-mac scored 15 on 6-for-11 shooting with 9 assists, 7 boards, 2 steals and a blocked shot.
  • Yes, nobody really knows what’s going on with this team, its lineups or the rotation. Not even Q!
  • ICE4DYESS – Our good friend Antonio McDyess played his 1000th game against Detroit.

Antonio McDyess: “I can feel it in my body that it is 1,000 games. To actually play my 1,000th game against my old team definitely feels good.”

  • Just weird to be typing this – Rip Hamilton led the Pistons with 20 points off the bench and was caught joking and laughing with Kuester during a timeout. Bizarro World!
  • No D at all.
  • Just 15 minutes on the floor for Rodney Stuckey who scored just 3.
  • Greg Monroe another double-double, 16 points and 10 board and a ton of hard work.
  • 20 offensive boards for Detroit while San Antonio had just five. Why? Because they never missed any of their shots.
  • Ben Wallace back with the team after the death of his brother, but did not play.

The 23-41 Pistons are back in action to take on the 51-12 Spurs Wednesday night in San Antonio. The NBA leading Spurs will look to bounce back from their first home loss in more than three months when they take on Detroit. A win for the Spurs will make it the first season sweep for San Antonio in 4 years against the Pistons.

  • The good: Ice4Dyess! The Pistons have no chance for a championship that’s why I’m putting all my energy into rooting for Antonio McDyess to get the ring he deserves.


  • The bad: Detroit…
  • The unknown: Will Tracey McGrady ever play?

What does McDyess have to say about the Pistons situation with Rip: “It’s Bad times up there”

With new potential Pistons owner in the building the Pistons gave Tom Gores a great show. Detroit gave the best team in the NBA a run for their money Tuesday night, but just couldn’t pull out the victory. The final score 100-89 final score doesn’t reflect the battle on court in an impressive performance for the Pistons despite the loss.

Key Points:

  • Rip Hamilton – OUT with a groin pull. We want Rip chants surfaced at the Palace again.
  • Rodney Stuckey back on court after missing 5 games.
  • Heartbreaking triples from the Spurs every time the Pistons got close. Spurs 55% from downtown.
  • 7th double-double of the season for the real deal Greg Monroe. Greg with 14 points, 13 boards and 2 assists. Add one heck of a pass to Rodney Stuckey who couldn’t convert the layup in crunch time.
  • Will Bynum was the spark plug in this one, matching his season high with 21 points. Will carried the team in the fourth quarter with an impressive performance down the stretch. Will added 6 board, an assist and a steal in 23 minutes. The highlights speak for themselves.

  • I thought Blaha was going to blow a gasket again…”Will Bynum off the HIGH HIGH Glass!”
  • Will Bynum scored 12 of his 21 points in the fourth quarterSix Spurs in double figures.

Antonio McDyess “I always love coming home…I consider this my home”

  • Im rooting for the Spurs to win it all ICE4DYESS.
  • DeJuan Blair added 18 points and 12 rebounds for San Antonio. He could have been our DaJuan.
  • What’s up with Charlie Villanueva? Just 12 minutes? He was 2-for-3 for 5 points.
  • Jason Maxiell sighting!
  • This one was tied 13 times with 15 lead changes.
  • The Spurs are pain good.
  • Tay struggled shooting going 5-for-15 for 12 points.
  • T-Mac with 7 and 3 assists.
  • Dear Chicago Ben Gordon, please come to Detroit…PLEASE!
  • Another one Wednesday in Cleveland.

Will Bynum on the possibility of being the team that Cleveland beats: “We won’t be.”

The 19-32 Pistons will host the 42-8 San Antonio Spurs Tuesday night at The Palace of Auburn Hills. The red hot Spurs will be playing their fist game away from home on their annual “Rodeo Trip”.

The Pistons always play the Spurs well and Tuesday night should be no different. The Spurs split two difficult games with the Pistons last season, a 112-92 win that was tied going into the fourth and losing 109-101 in overtime at The Palace of Auburn Hills.

The good: ICE4DYESS – possibly the last time we’ll see Dyess at the Palace.
The bad: Rodney Stuckey and Jason Maxiell are questionable.
The unknown: Will Rip Hamilton play at the Palace for the first time in over a month?

We went over the Joy of the Eastern Conference Championship in 2005, now it’s time to look back at what almost was.

Blame it on Sheed…we all do.

As it happens almost every season when the Pistons fall short, I reminisce to myself and to you about once was.  Today I bring you the joy and drama of the 2005 Pistons playoff run.

Remember the Miami series, when all we heard was that the only reason the Pistons won was because Wade was hurt?  Remember when the Pistons had to play through the drama of Larry Brown looking for another job in the middle of the Eastern Conference Finals. Remember when Sheed didn’t like the referee’s and made sure he let the entire country know and then gave us a GuaranSheed.

Take a trip down memory lane and revel in the joy of one Antonio McDyess, who looks like the happiest man on the planet…at least for that particular moment.

The Pistons beat the Spurs in OT 101-109.  I’m gong to set most of the details aside like:

  • The officiating
  • The hack a Ben Wallace fiasco that Pop pulled.
  • The fact that Kuester left Ben in after 5 consecutive fouls.
  • The almost fit of rage and the headband toss from Ben when when he finally was pulled with a little more than 2 minutes left in the game.
  • The 10 point lead widdled down to one.
  • The Manu flop.
  • The Rip tech that could have cost the Pistons the game.
  • Some clutch baskets by Stuckey.
  • Ben Gordon coming to life.

I guess I really didn’t put anything aside, but here is the video I took of the reaction from the crowd when Antonio McDyess was introduced at the Palace with the Pistons Intros.

I have to say I am a bit disappointed that they didn’t make a bit more of Dyess’s homecoming.  In fact I felt that they almost cut off the cheers by starting the introductions.

Not only did I get to see Dyess, I’m still excited that thanks to my friend Dave, Antonio McDyess has an Ice4Dyess T-Shirt in his possession.

It was a great win, I’m anxious to hear your thoughts.

Welcome Back Antonio McDyess

The Pistons vs. The Spurs

The 19-35 Detroit Pistons host the 31-22 San Antonio Spurs this evening at The Palace of Auburn Hills. This marks the first time Antonio McDyess will be back at the Palace after signing with San Antonio this season.

I know you may not believe this but, I’m more excited to see Antonio’s return than I was for Sheed’s. Dyess will forever hold a a special place with me for his character, will, determination, and most of all his heart.

Forget the Spurs Scouting Report, let’s pay tribute to Antonio.

When the Pistons started the game hitting their first 11 shots you would have thought it was going to be one of those games at the Palace.  The Bucks had other ideas.  The Milwaukee bench outscored the Pistons bench 53-16 to a 91-85 victory at the Palace.

Key Points:

  • I know everyone is pointing at the Pistons bench for the loss, but do you realize they only took 18 Shots.
  • Tayshaun Prince is racking up minutes (42), and his defense is starting to creep back.  Prince with 12 points, 8 boards and 3 blocked shots.
  • Ben Wallace pretty much contained Andrew Bogut by himself, while grabbing 12 boards, with a block, a steal and 3 points.
  • Jonas Jerebko with 12 points on 6-for-7 shooting, 2 steals a blocked shot and 4 boards.  His game is maturing by the day.  Did anyone catch the guys with the sign that said Swedish Eagle?
  • Rip Hamilton with a game high 29 points on 9-for-20 shooting with 3 assists, 3 boards and a steal.  It was a vintage Rip night.

  • Charlie V never really got a chance this season to torch his former team.  Charlie with 2 points, 4 boards in 18 minutes.  His foul trouble and the turnovers, probably was the reason for the minutes.  I just hope he shakes off whatever is ailing him soon.

“Coming off that bench, we’ve got to play better,” Bynum said. “We had an eight- or 10-point lead when we got in in the first half. There’s no way we can play like that when the first team plays as well as they did in the first quarter. We’ve got to keep it going and I don’t think we did that tonight.” Via

  • An odd game for Rodney Stuckey, he scored 13 on 5-for-10 shooting, but for some reason he looked uncomfortable out there to me.  Could it have possibly been because he was trying to keep up with the lightning quick Jennings?  He did turn the ball over 5 times.
  • 1-for-6 from downtown.
  • Maxiell with a vintage putback.

  • We really could have pulled it out in the last minutes of the game, but John Salmons, who is truly a Pistons killer no matter where he plays had the clutch three to put the Pistons away.
  • I will never watch a Josh Hartnet movie again….Ilyasova with 16 points and 12 boards off the bench for the Bucks.
  • Nice to see Stack still has it, he got us through some tough times here in the D.
  • Just a frustrating game altogether…we were shooting lights out in the first half and losing.
  • Let Austin Play!
  • Board war lost 37-40.
  • Gordon….1-for-6.  Is it the injury or is it what we were afraid of when the Pistons acquired him?  Rip and BG together on one team?
  • I’m shaking this one off because I’m excited to see Antonio tomorrow evening at the Palace.  Ice4Dyess
