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.

I got some pretty good inside information from Need4Sheed reader and friend Raul A. Mora aka El Patron Himself (of The Big Denial fame). Apparently he found out what LeBron James’s current iPod playlist is.

2. King Without a Crown – Matisyahu
3. Kryptonite – 3 Doors Down
4. Heartbreak Hotel – Elvis Presley
5. New York, New York – Frank Sinatra
6. The Takeover- Jay-Z
7. Sucks to be You – Prozzac
8. Lose Yourself – Eminem
9. Loser – Beck
10. Cruel Summer – Bananarama
11. A New York State of Mind – Billy Joel
12. Help! – The Beatles
13. Close But No Cigar – Thomas Dolby
14. Alone Again (Naturally) – Gilbert O’Sullivan
15. I’m Going Slightly Mad – Queen

I blew up the picture so we could clearly see his iPod and from the looks of it on track 3.
Good job El Patron!
If know of any additions to LeBrons playlist, by all means leave them in the comments and if you didn’t get a chance to read this little piece on the “King”, by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports….I suggest you do so.
Congrats to Bill Laimbeer and the Shock for dominating the WNBA finals in a sweep over San Antonio. We actually have a legitimate Dynasty right now in Detroit. Let’s hope The Pistons can change the sign again after the 2008-2009 season. The did get off to a good start with an 95-91 OT win over The Heat in their first pre-season game.
I have now witnessed The Shock and The Pistons win it all in person. A friend of mine thought it would be fun to head down to EMU for the game and let me tell you it was a special experience. Laimbeer and Mahorn were ecstatic, the Bad Boys brought another championship to Detroit. I pulled the video for all to enjoy. Go Shock!
Apparently my YouTube video isn’t working, I’ll have to try again later today for you.
