    4 simply word to describe Ben. “BAD ASS MOTHA F**KA”
    And then Shaq says it was a foul on SPORTSCENTER.

    Honestly is this some sort of sick joke?

    That was the best Block I have seen in the playoffs. I watched it 10+ time on nba.com.

    Its going to be a tough game on Friday.

    I hope that block can be a symbolic play in these playoffs much like tayshauns block was in 04 in terms of momentum swing and eventually ending up in a NBA Title.

    Big Ben – Big Block, Big heart
    Shaq – Big mouth, Big ASS

    That’s what you get for all those push offs that you have gotten away with so far.

    Pistons – it’s time to turn up another notch on that defensive screw and bring it home for Game 7.

    Ben Wallace STUFFED Shaq like a Thanksgiving turkey on that play and then made him fall like a WET RAG!

    Shaq seriously said that was a foul? What’s he smoking? Poor guy was just humiliated. Has to try to find a way to downplay the fact that he got owned. Pathetic. Who’s making excuses now?

    Friday’s game should be good. Both teams will be playing with a sense of desperation as Detroit fights to stay alive and Miami tries their best to avoid having to come back to the Palace, where they stand no chance now.

    Will history be in the Piston’s favor or will Miami take advantage of having home court. I guess we will see.

    Go Pistons!!!

    That first picture proves Ben used Shaq as leverage to keep his hangtime on that block. Obla Di. We will get the calls next game.

    i guess aside from the fact that wallace’s entire arm is pushed against shaq’s elbow, that his entire left arm is push against shaq’s body, and his lower body is pressed agaist shaq’s, there isn’t a whole lot of contact. but that’s ok — better the league officials get you guys all excited and rob parker all “good riddance to the heat” to make your friday demise that much more dramatic.

    That was the loudest the Palace has been in a while. The Pistons played an excellent game. They need to play another great game (probably a better one without their fans). They can do this by focusing on on game at a time, each quarter at a time, each minute at a time, and each possession at a time. They’re here for a reason and they love the adversity. They are definitely the most entertaining and exciting team to watch.

    I still don’t understand why HEAT fans come here anyway? Get over yourselves and go to a Heat website to talk about Shaq and Wade. Your clearly not welcome here.

    I guess there are no Heat fans with this much dedication and wit to have a website dedicated to their team. I hope you all get lost in your WHITE OUT.

    Ok, I was never a huge shaq fan in the first place, but when he went and claimed bens HUGE block on him was a foul, I lost all respect for him. The pistons are the first ones to give respect and credit to the opposing team for beating them when they lose, so how about swallow some of your pride and give ben some credit. After seeing that interview, that alone should give the pistons enough fire to go BEAT the HEAT in Miami and of course in game 7. Great site, Great pics, Go Pistons.

    The Pistons(along with the Phoenix Suns) are the two most respected teams in the NBA. I would kill to see the two duke it out in the Finals(Both Detroit and Phoenix will win 2 more straight games a piece, and I will be privileged and honored to see Sheed and Nash, 2 of my Favorite Players, go at it in the finals)

    GO PISTONS!!!!!!
    AND YOU TOO SUNS!!!!!!

    Riley called it a “Nice Block”.
    So Fatso’s own coach is wrong too???

    Maybe you should play B-ball against a 350lb. gorilla with 5″ height difference, then you can make the call, Fool.

    Sure it was a close call, but here is the measuring stick. Would you get away with calling that a foul on the playground? No, absolutely not, all hell would break loose and everyone on the sidelines would be giving you shit. So, yes Shaq got blocked – get over it already, we all got over “Kazaam”, “Blue Chips” and The Fu-Shnickins.

    If they should have called a foul than they shouldve called shaq shoving sheed out of bounds which is how he got wide open under the basket in the first place

    but still your opinion doesnt matter here.. and what happened is what happened Ben STUFFED THE SHIT OUT OF SHAQ! no foul called. Jump Ball. Ben Gets the tip.. So is that foul too when ben got the tip? LMFAO and miamis coach said it was a hell of a play and couldnt hold back a smile because he never seen that before.. so just admit it you’re just too stubborn for your own good and cant admit that shaq got stuffed for the life of you and its cool, ignorance really shows sometimes

    ben wallace should really consider trying the Ultimate Fight.. K1 Mixed Martial Arts or so.. because basketball is too complicated..

    i heard that a kid watched ben shooting FT’s.. and suddenly started crying ‘mom i don’t wanna play basketball’..

    ben is simply a low-IQ body-building fanatic, full with stamina and goes out there destroying the game.

    detroit pisstones suck, and their game is a basketball genocide.. i mean, who wants to watch 80 point games, so many sneaky, filthy, dirty moves.. and ‘run-without-the-ball’ offense, led by rip?!?! and PRINCE?! prince being the go-to guy is a blasphemy!

    i p*ss on the pisstones..

    Hey Shepard… piss all you want.. it might make you smell better… i don’t see Miami lighting up the scoreboard… and boring basketball? throw the ball into Shrekquille, he backs up like a freight train.. elbowing, travelling, headbutting, and used all the might of his fat to knock you down before he gets his 8 inches of lift so he can dunk the ball… get a life… you have Antoine the Cabbage Patch Kid, Gary “half my face is paralyzed so i only talk out of one side of my mouth” Payton, Jayson “white trash” Williams, and of course our favorite… Alonzo “spare parts” Mourning… too bad he survived that kidney operation,… he is a pathetic, cocky, piece of crap who never ever commits a foul… i wish he would die…. you too

    HAHAhA holy shit not only that block on shaq but also on that white man jason williams that went about 6 rows up. All the heat fans are shitting their pants because they are scared except for those heat fans who go on pistons websites. are they actually heat fans. Shaq is stupid for saying that was a foul and ben shouldnt have said people get lucky. cus its not luck when you do it to everyone in the league.

    What a block!!!
    Shaq that baby cant give respect even when he knows its not a foul.
    Shaq needs to go pick up his face off the court and get an eye patch.
    Shepard, just quit the basketball talk, your just a D-Town hater. Anyone who says that was a foul doesnt know basketball.
    Big Ben I got to give you your props, its not easy packing him.
    Shaq, your good but you’re no Ben. Just give the man his respect and walk away. We all know that if Ben would have got blocked like that he would say it was clean. Shaq just disrespects.
    Man, I hope Shaq reads this
    (with his agent helping him).
