Most of you know how this very special Pistons team came together. Joe Dumars assembled not only the best starting five in the NBA, but he put together a family. If you are not from Detroit and don’t get to see our local media coverage of the team you might not know what a close knit team this is. Joe said it best himself, “I have never seen a team that works so hard and has so much fun at the same time. I never thought that could happen.”

If you are a Pistons fan you must realize that this team, and especially this season is very special. On the verge of breaking the Pistons franchise winning record, clinching the best record in the NBA and getting ready for playoff dominance, sometimes we take this all for granted. What you are witnessing doesn’t come along very often, so watch them, enjoy them, praise them, and thank them, they have made our city proud. Detroit Basketball at it’s finest, just one more thing left on the list, 2006 NBA Champions.

    another great clip!
    unfortunately, there are a couple glitches when i play it back (at the 8 & 23 second marks). am i the only one experiencing this?

    Ever notice how Lebron gets “hurt” everytime hes on national tv or tv in general. It makes me sick how everyone says hes the best player and deserves MVP. He doesnt deserve shit, who has he made better on his team, the answer no one, look at damon jones goes from leading the league in thress last year because of shaq and this year hes sucked. Why cant lebron make him better? Lebron is soft when the game is on the line and is affraid to take the last shot. Doenst sound like a leader to me. The only thing lebron is good at is chewing his fingernails or clipping them when hes on the bench. Maybe if lebron would spend as much time worrying about his nails on being a leader when his team needs him he might actually help them.

    Hey Ryan tell us how you really feel about Lebron. He’s only 21 and is only going to get better, of course he’s going to struggle against the Pistons who play TEAM basketball. I think Lebron is very good and is only going to get better.

    This Pistons group is special and I hope they do win the title so they get the respect they deserve.

    I heard Dee Brown on ESPN radio talking about Chauncey and how he thinks he’s the most underappreciated player in the league! Go Chauncey!
