Yes Sir!

Is it appropriate to be upset that the Pistons just lost to a Nets team that don’t have double digits in the win column?  Yes and no.  At this point in the season, with the injuries the Pistons had, the drama of the team up for sale, the departure of the infrastructure that was Tom Wilson, the free agent signings disappointing year and the Rodney Stuckey scare,  shouldn’t we be able to let this season go as what it is?

Hell, we got through Michael Curry and Allen Iverson didn’t we.

I’m not happy with the loss, and I hate for Detroit to be labeled as an easy W on anyone’s schedule, but right now it is what it is.

Can’t we just enjoy the last few games as games not a reason to point fingers?

This franchise (hopefully) will always stand for hard work and underdogs, and it’s our job as Pistons fans to ride whatever comes our way.  If you can’t do that….you might as well be a Lakers fan.

I’m not asking you to put on your teal and maroon Jerry Stackhouse jersey, but I am asking you to embrace what will likely be a few seasons of  hard games to watch.  We don’t know what will become of the team this off-season, we don’t know who will be here and who won’t, but we should know which ones of us will be standing by and waiting for the turn around.

I’m not taking some kind of moral high-ground here, I’m just stating the obvious and remember that I have been through this before.  It’s had, but if you love the game it doesn’t matter.  Hell, the Lions still have fans.

It was a loss, a loss to the Nets, it doesn’t feel good but just look at it as more hope for the future.  They will be just fine, but it will take some time.

  • Iverson to be reevaluated on Wednesday in Georgetown…should we start taking bets on his return? “Every day I come in here, we ask about Allen,” Curry said. “He knows that. He’s almost in a no-win situation. He doesn’t want to be the story. He doesn’t want his injury or him coming off the bench to be a distraction or anything to the team. He just wants to win, get into the playoffs and compete for a title.” Via MLive
  • Still can’t believe we lost to Memphis.
  • The Pistons are one game back of the Sixers, the standings don’t look good for Detroit right now.  Especially with a back to back in Texas Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • This is just one of the reasons why I appreciated Mr. Davidson. And that’s no Bullshit.
