Prince Is King

Sunday the Pistons moved on to face Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals. Pistons fans know that the team they watched lose three games to the Cavs weren’t The Pistons we have come to watch all season. I am not going to go into production numbers but needless to say Mr. Big Shot, Rip, Sheed and Ben didn’t have the best series, not even coming close to their regular season numbers. And don’t get me started on turnovers and the free throw shooting.

What I do want to point out is that Tayshaun Prince was this series MVP, if it wasn’t for Tayshaun’s production during this series against the Cavs, the Pistons would never have moved on. Not only did Tayshaun help lockdown LeBron, but he put up numbers every night. And I didn’t realize that he played every minute of game 5 and 6 and all but 57 seconds of game 7. Thanks for stepping up Tay.

    I’m just happy that this series is over so I can stop hearing how old Lebron James is repeated ad nauseum day in and day out “…blah blah 21 years old…” and “…blah blah for only 21 ..blah”

    Who cares? He got pwned, end of story.

    my friends and i are having a little debate…does anyone know how many technical fouls rasheed has in the playoffs so far??
    WHY didn’t Tay make the all star team again?

    Re: Sheed’s technicals

    I’m pretty sure he has 2 in the playoffs. I believe that gives him 5 more before a one-game suspension.

    We’ve beat the Heat before. We can beat them again. 1 guy can’t be 5…and 2 guys can’t beat 5.

    Sheed Has 3 two from the first round and 1 from the second.

    He gets 7 before a suspension happens.

    Chauncey is the key in this series. Williams and paytons can’t match up. I see Billups avg 20.ppg

    Definitely like the pic. I’m so glad it’s over too. I’m sick and tired of hearing about how great LeBron is, and I absolutely can’t stand the ESPN commentators. Talk about favoring a player. LeBron this, King James that…whatever! Hopefully they will stop airing the Nike Witness commercials now! We were all witnesses to a blowout Game 7!!

    ha, so i was right!
