This #Pistons Video has got to put a smile on your face after Detroit’s game against Philadelphia. I didn’t get a chance to watch the game live, but it was on in the distance and I watched the score throughout. I just had a chance to watch the replay and if you’re like me, you don’t want to rehash that one. That’s why I prefer to give you a little video to make you think of better days.

Nothing like some Sheed trash talking to brighten up a dreary day. And if things keep going like this for Pistons, I’m going to have to keep digging into my Video Vault to save us on Prozac prescriptions.

Enjoy!

The Pistons got pummeled Saturday night at the Palace of Auburn Hills 103-80 in what may have been one of the worst showings by a Pistons team that I witnessed since the dreaded teal years.

Key Points:

  • It was actually 25-24 after the first quarter.  I left my seat for five minutes and the Knicks had already started the beat down.  They blew the score wide open in about a three minutes span going on a 16-0 run.
  • New York outscored the Pistons 39 to 18 in the second quarter and 22-to-15 in the third.
  • The dunks and open look shots the Knicks put up on the Pistons were demoralizing.  Every time it happened the Palace crowd gave an awe in unison.
  • At one point this team was shooting about 27% from the floor.  They finished shooting 37%.
  • This little stat was just really a first quarter thing.  The game was tied 7 times with 5 lead changes.
  • I think I saw “angry” Lawrence Frank more time than I wanted to last night.
  • Careless with the ball. A disgusting 20 turnovers.
  • Brandon Knight, who started again in place or Rodney Stuckey,  led the Pistons with 19 points, 6 boards, 4 assists and 3 steals. The kid is good and has a very bright future, but he needs work.  Knight launched 13 3-point shots and didn’t get to the foul line.

  • Austin Daye in street clothes, though the score might have been worse if he had played.
  • Murdered on the boards, that was one reason the Knicks were able to build their massive lead.
  • Shame on this team for letting Mike Bibby kill them from downtown.  He’s almost as old as Lawrence Frank.
  • Greg Monroe with 15 points and 5 boards.
  • When the team has to count on Jason Maxiell and Damian Wilkins, there is serious trouble. No disrespect to either of them but Tayshaun and others need to start producing.
  • Want to talk about Turrrrable…Ben Gordon committed 9 of Detroit’s turnovers and was 5-for-12 with 12 points. His shot selection is suspect.
  • Jonas and Prince were both 1-for-6.
  • BTW in the official box score Charlie V is a DNP because of a sore right ankle.  Did he catch that from Daye?

  • 50 points in the paint for the Knicks.
  • The game was getting so out of hand that my math skills + a drink wasn’t allowing me to keep up with the deficit.  The Knicks led by as much as 30 in this one.

Lawrence Frank: “This is not representative of who we want to be. We all have to own it. This is going to be a long season, so what we have to do is figure out all the things that are going to be part of the solution.”

  • I can’t really spin any positives on this one, especially since the loudest roar I’ve heard at the Palace in quite some time was when they showed that the Lions had scored their first touchdown.

Bynum worried about being rushed before the season

Timing is everything. Chemistry is something that you don’t just throw in the frying pan and mix it up with another something, then throw it on top of something, then fry it up and put it in a tortilla and put it in a microwave, heat it up and give it to you and expect it to taste good. You know? For those of you who can cook, y’all know what I’m talking about. If y’all can’t cook, this doesn’t concern you. Yeah, I do feel rushed, especially out there playing, because we’re trying to learn so much in a short amount of time,Us having a new coach, a new system, new defensive principles, everything is just compact. And to be the point guard, I have to run the team and tell everybody else where to be, when they’re doing wrong or when they’re doing right. You have to know everything down pat, and it’s a short amount of time to know that. But we’ve got to do it, we’ve got to fight through it. We’ll be ready. It’s just that it doesn’t feel good knowing, being out there and hesitating that half a second. That second is actually everything in the league.”

“It’s going to be grueling but we have to play more back-to-backs,” Prince said. “There will be some nights where guys aren’t playing as many minutes, but no there’s no excuses.”

Ben Gordon

“I had a lot of time to think over the summer, and I just want to be as much of a leader as I can be, whether it be vocally, or definitely with my play,That’s something that’s needed on this team this year. The last two years, I felt there was a lack of that role from our players, so I just want to step up and take more ownership in the team.”

Joe Dumars on Jonas Jerebko

Doing the stuff he does – his effort, his energy – we missed him last year big time,”

Jonas Jerebko

Playoffs is definitely our goal, and we’re going to make it,” Jerebko said. “I know we’re going to be a lot better. We’re going to work harder. We’re definitely a better team than last year.

97.1′s Mike Valenti and Mike Stone talked to Joe Dumars after the Lawrence Frank introduction presser.

Apparently Joe knows enough about golf that he calls his choice of his new coach as his Mulligan.

“What do they call a do-over in golf? A mulligan? This is my mulligan here, man,” Dumars said. “This is my one do-over that I want to get right in the worst way right now.”

This was his choice…Check out the whole interview below.

Little did I know that when I headed out for the last Pistons home game of the season that I would be so entertained. Sadly it wasn’t the game that did it though.

Detroit couldn’t muster up their first four game winning streak of the season against the lowly Cavs, but there was some excitement.

New Pistons owner Tom Gores was in the house giving some really memorable quotes to the media. If you were following @Chris_Iott of MLive you would have gotten bombarded by them mid game. My favorite has to be this one.

Now I was sort of close to where Gores was and I had a blast checking him out enjoying the entire game. Trust me when I tell you that if you get close enough to Gores you can actually Taste The Rainbow.

If the quotes and the smiles weren’t enough, the man totally got down to Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing as it blasted though the Palace sound system. Thankfully the broadcast caught some of the action, but trust me it was much more awesome in person.  Everyone loved it!

If that wasn’t great enough…Charlie V did the rest. I’m sure by now you know about the little tussle at the Palace, so here it is for you.

With Gores in the house and the crowd cheering “Charlie! Charlie!” it was a heck of a sendoff for this season.

And if you happen to have been following my tweets during the game you’ll know I created a new hashtag #Gores4Prez.

The 26-49 (eliminated from the playoffs) Detroit Pistons are Boston to take on the 52-23 Celtics Sunday evening.

  • The good: The Pistons have nothing to lose and they did beat the Celtics once this season.
  • The bad: The Pistons are one defeat away from their first consecutive 50-loss campaigns since 1993-94 and ’94-95. Detroit has dropped five of six overall after Friday’s 101-96 home loss to the Bulls.
  • The unknown: Is the deal going down or not?

Tip off is at 6:00 pm and will be broadcast on Fox Sports Detroit. If you can’t catch the game on TV, follow it live over at NBA.com or on the radio over at WWJ 950 AM.

I pulled this one from my need4Sheed vault.  I assumed we would want to catch up on a little Rodman before Friday night’s ceremony.

For those of you who didn’t have the pleasure of watching Dennis play in a Pistons uniform, trust me when I tell you it was awesome. The hard work and the heart and emotion shined through every time he stepped up on the floor.

Congrats Worm, we really do appreciate you.
