    This is so depressing.
    Changes need to be made, I really don’t understand what happened to this team after Game 3 with Cleveland. All of the suddenly everyone is afraid to attack the basket and settling for jumpshots that won’t fall in……

    Oh well, Go Dirk and Dallas or Nash and Phoenix. I hope you run Fatso right out of your building.

    one thing for shure though Heat fans are some of the worst fans of the nba.Sure they all where white but you noticed how they were all sitting down in the start and were still pretty quiet until the end.
    pistons fans stand up the whole damn game and cheer heat fans just kinda sit around even when the heat are winning
    on a volume scale from 1-10 it’s like a 9.8 and at where ever the hell the heat play it’s like 6.5

    But hat’s off to the heat Have fun loosing in the playoff’s

    I think are lack of motivation may have something to do with the spurs loosing 2. Because they were are whole motivation for the regular season we didn’t care for the heat as much as we cared to get our payback on the spurs.

    At which point do we admit that this was a jumpshot team all year that was never force to adjust from game to game? Dwayne and Shaq flat out wanted this game more than the Pistons did. Where is the urgency? I think too many of these guys feel like they have been there before. They don’t want to be the a “bad mother… shut your mouth” like Shaq. Is one and done enough for these Pistons? It’s too bas it had to end like this.

    The pistons would have won if 1. Rasheed Wallace was not injured. 2 Rip Hamilton was not injured. 3 Larry Brown was still the head coach!Pistons still have an edge on the heat, the pistons beat them at their own court last year to go on to the finals!I hope the heat lose in the finals!

    Ya I watched the whole game and it was sickening.I do want Larry back and shound’t blmae everything on Flip but most should go on him.Larry knew D but Flip doesn’t.You can be the worst team and offenese and still win titles just like the 04′ Pistons and the 05 East Champ Pistons.The main thing for us fans this season is to hope that Joe will bring in young bench players,im not taking anything away from Dyess but he is old along with Delk and Lidsey.Don’t worry we are still a championship contender team for the next five years as long as we keep our dangerous five.

    I hope the Heat dont win, But i do think were going to have a big Off-season. I think were going to sign and trade Ben with someone-else and try to get KG or AI. Its going to be really interesting.

    This was going to be my first time watching the Pistons in the finals. 🙁

    Cant wait for the draft now.

    Oh and did anyone catch the Heat fans boo’ing the pistons when someone announced they had a good season, even though we actually showed some class and congratulated them, unlike game 5 when Heat ran off to the locker room. Yeah. Great fans.

    Good job this season boys. Wished for a different outcome, but hey, everything happens for a reason. All we can do is come back next year as a better team.

    I’m speechless, Rip was the only one fighting in the 4th quarter. He was the only one that didn’t want it to end right there. Where were the other guys?!?! Where was the motivation, the hunger?!?!?! We had a spectacular season, I’m just upset to see it end this way. I guess now it’s time to root for the Mavs. I REALLY feel for McDyess, he wanted a ring..and he wont get it this year. What a SAD, SAD, SAD, end to the season…looking forward to next season.

    I’ve been rooting for the Pistons all year, mainly because they should have won last year and I hate Shaq. But they were straight up embarrassed in Game 6. D Wade didn’t even play the first half (stats-wise) and the Pistons let Shaq get dunk after dunk, while shooting 15-50 from the field and missing a TON of wide open jumpers.

    They should be ashamed of themselves the way they went out. They got blown out in all 4 games that they lost, and consistently let the Heat shoot in the 58% range from the field.

    It will be interesting to see if they can regain the hunger that they seemed to have the first half of the season, and if they can make some moves to strengthen their bench. Here’s hoping they make a run next year.

    The thing that will help me sleep at night is knowing that Miami didnt beat Detroit, Detroit beat Detroit. This Detroit team is not the same team from the regular season or from the last few years. There was no heart, no passion or hunger. Yes Miami played good, it would have been a totally different story if this had been the Same Detroit team as in the Reg Season. Dont worry we’ll be back next year.

    Interesting observations this series…

    1.) Pistons played like crap, but they seemed to have a chance in some of the games early on if not for several questionable calls.

    2.) Pistons dominate in game 5, yet NBA.com fails to update their video and highlights page, almost as if they wanted to hide the fact. Dallas has a great game the next night, it is updated almost instantly.

    3.) I read an article on how this game will define the Piston’s legacy ealier today, linked from NBA.com. Somehow, that article is pushed back up to the top after they loose, almost as if to say, you are done. When I looked, it said it had been posted 17 minutes ago. I read it several hours ago.

    Now granted, there is nothing anyone but the Pistons could have done to fix their poor shooting, but there was some real suspicious stuff going on this series that sure made me wonder if there was some kind of bigger plan working against them as well. After all, you can’t easily create the next profit driving MJ if a pesky group of team players stands in the way.

    Hmmm…

    What Detroit needs to do is bring in a vetrean point guard like Sam Cassel to replace Lindsey Hunter. They need to figure out there idnetity. either trade ben wallace for kevin garnett and go offense or keep ben wallace and go defense.

    I will admit something didn’t seem right beetween the pistons as a team
    the coach
    and the refs
    best team in the nba shoots 30%?
    (any crazy stat people out there interested in finding out how many teams in the nba that were the best team in the nba durring regular season and then shot 30% in the in the post season)(or even best team for the past 3 years who manged to shoot 30%)

    and it does feel like theres something alot deeper going on
    I guess maybe the harsh reality is that we lost to someone named shaq who’s biggest movie roll was kazaam
    and steel and then as if that wasn’t enough made a rap album that no one in their right mind would ever listen 2.And then he got beat by arron carter in his music video”come on shaq had enough yet”. and oddly enough was in (Omega Psi Phi Fraternity)How is this even possible it has to be a conspiracy

    for everybody wondering, there is no measure to how badly Dallas will beat Miami’s ass…Dallas would have likely put a hurting on the Pistons based on how poor they have looked the last 3 weeks, but the Dallas/Miami series will simply be a joke. I pitty that David Stern has to tolerate this finals after an incredibly entertaining playoffs to this point.

    What the hell happened to us? Unstoppable during the season, mediocre during postseason play. Tey and Rip have been the only two that have played above par in the playoffs. Big Shot, Sheed, and Ben were off and on. The Heat did not beat us, we beat ourselves. Where was our motivation to win, that fire in their eyes you saw burning the last two years?? I got tired of hearing the postgame comment of “we’ll be alright.” Their desire was gone. Maybe we were just too damn good during the season where we thought a championship was inevitable? Anyhow, thanks for the great season Detroit. I loved watching every game. I’m not sure if we’ll see the same starting five next year, but I hope you regain that fire in your eyes.

    I don’t know what happened, but I know we could of won. There was just no gas. People were saying, they didn’t wanna win or, they didn’t care.. DID you SEE their sad faces? And ya, they were really good sports. And then Miami booooooooos at them? u guyz suck!

    You need to just let it go, Detroit lost, they didn’t play with heart and they were missing shots like crazy, no conspiracy, just crappy basketball. Detroit had a great run but I think there will be a big break-up of the starting five and detroit will no longer be a dominating team thru the regular season.

    In retrospect, I think they could have used Milicic and Arroyo to give a boost to their collapsing offense. I don’t see why they just got rid of them while getting nothing in return. It did nothing to help them at best and deprived them of the little extra boost of energy that just might have made them win at worst. Their bench when from average to poor after that trade, and on the final half of the season the starting five had too much pressure on them to secure home court throughout the playoffs. They just looked done by the time the playoffs came around.

    So I think everyone, from Joe Dumars to Flip to the players are to blame for this unsatisfying end to a brilliant season.

    you guys need to settle the hell down, talking about firing flip. if he can run a shooting offense and the pistons can win 80% of their games, then so be it. but if the players can’t answer the call in the playoffs and make those shots, then i don’t see the point in blaming the coach.

    You guys are crazy. The Pistons are the first team since the Jordan Bulls to get to the Conference Finals four times in a row. They are still young. We have been spoiled and will keep getting spoiled as long as Dumars Touch is around. There is probably no reason to get rid of any of the starters when they have proven to get it done before and continue to compete at a high level. What they need is a solid coach. Someone who understands both defense and offense. Someone who will stick around for 4 or more years and who everyone on the team respects. Phil Jackson or George Karl would be great for this team. They’ll be back next year in the Conference Fnals unless the Cavs get someone who can complement James. And don’t forget that Wade and James are probably moving to different teams after next season. Miami and the Cavs can’t afford either of them. Regardless, the Pistons chances in the next few years are good as long as the organization and the pieces involved keep their heads on straight.

    This is purely a theory

    Only those of you that watch the series 24 with Jack Bauer the gang will understand this. Okay think back to the 3rd season when Michelle was kidnapped and Tony had to move the men from the rear of the building (to allow the bad guy to get away). Do you remember the feeling you had and the mood at CTU? Everyone knew something was wrong but couldn’t put a finger on it. Just like in the Miami series.

    I think that this half hearted playoff effort by the pistons was somehow part of something way bigger then basketball. You can go all the way back to game 3 against the Cavs. They tried so hard to let the Cavs win but they couldn’t make it obvious and the Cavs fell. We intercepted a message just before tip off of game one. It read… we will release nerve gas in the Palace if you do not comply with our demands and allow the Heat to advance.

    You see they (the PISTONS) did this to protect us.

    That is the only explanation that makes any sense.

    The Pistons are the best team in basketball, no doubt in my mind. They play like a true team, relying on everyone’s strengths and helping each other to over come their weaknesses.

    The Miami series was a joke. Our beloved Pistons didn’t play as well as they have all season, that’s a given. However, something bigger was going on. When Fatass, I mean Shaq, can blatently push people down (see his push of Rip in game 4, I believe it was and then he pushed someone else in game 6) and receive no call against him, how the hell are we supposed to overcome that? In games 3 and 4, it didn’t matter what the Pistons did (or didn’t do) for defense, fouls were called nearly every single play against them. When Miami came back down on defense they fouled the hell out of the Pistons and were never called on it. Even if we’d hit the shots better, it’s hard to say whether we could have won the series with that sort of officiating.

    I hope Dallas kicks the shit out of Miami and reminds them of the fact that they are not the team that deserves to be in the NBA finals. And my hope is that Detroit finds the desire to win again before next season starts. Never lose the faith, our boys need us!

    Couple of things:

    (1) Natalie, your site kicks ass. Even though I’m a Heat fan, you have my respect. Your screensavers and wallpapers are all over my friend’s computer now, as she’s a total Detroit fan.

    (2) Miami fans seem way too similar to Laker fans. They’re just there because that’s where everyone goes if they’re in Miami. Not much interest in the actual game, which is kind of depressing, being a Heat fan in San Diego.

    (3) Joe Dumars is probably the best GM in the league. He’ll fix what needs to be fixed, and Detroit will be a contender again next season, like they were last season. And the season before that. And the season before that…

    (4) Enough with the Wade bashing! He’s not a “bitch,” or a “baby,” and he’s not getting stabbed in the eye anytime soon. So please stop!

    (5) The officiating all season, especially in the playoffs, has been OBSCENELY BAD. But I don’t think Detroit got shafted more then any other team did. When Detroit kept Miami out of the paint and off of the free-throw line, they won. When they let Miami get in the lane at will and attack the basket, they lost. There wasn’t some big conspiracy set in motion by the powers that be so Miami would be in the Finals. And Shaq wasn’t shoving people around all series. When he did, more often then not they called the foul (although there were a few he got away with early in the series when he abused Big Ben and they didn’t call anything, but there were 3 or 4 fouls at the most they didn’t call). If you let Shaq have uncontested dunks all game (like in Game 6) you’re going to have a tough time winning.

    Hopefully this was respectful enough to make the cut, but if not…I’ll just post it on my site. Haha. Again, respect to you and your Pistons Natalie, as well as the Detroit fans that haven’t acted-a-fool online. I enjoy your work, and I’ll be checking your site to see what goes down. Gotta keep up with the competition, blog-wise and NBA-wise. Haha.

    From the viewpoint of a Heat fan, you guys sure are doing a lot of arguing. I myself am not a bandwagon jumper. I have always like the Heat and have followed them closely for 6 out of my 16 years of living.

    The officiating WAS bad, but it went both ways. There IS a reason that Detroit started falling apart near the Cavs and Heat games and that is because the other team and their stars (wade and lebron) got their team to have the emotional factor in the game.

    And in response to all your Dallas Maverick threats, no I am not in the least bit scared of them. You guys were who I truely feared most and we diposed of you.

    To the heat dummy fan who said he’s not scared of Dallas. To remind you, when the miami heat played Dallas in the season you lost to them by 36 points! Dallas beat the spurs, in which the spurs are BETTER than the pistons! Miami is going to lose in the finals to the Dallas mavericks, The mavs have a better defense and offense than the pistons and they are much quicker, and they can play any style of ball!

    to whom ever thinks the Mavricks are the new champions I have bad news. shaq knows whats his and he is gonna get it. If I am wrong Please sebd it to pistons363@yahoo.com
    but the olny way that the heat wont win it all is if diop gains 400 pounds, stackhouse gets leg transplants, and last nowinksi drops at least 50 but probably more. Also in my opion the pistons lost because of the great season they had. I mean you cant keep it up for that long. thats why I think that flip was the wrong choice.(I couldent do any better I am just sayin) this is probably a mis assumpution but I think flip was seeking aproval of the piston fans and he got it but in the prosses he doused the fire that is the pistons. the men you saw on the floor wearing the pistons red white and blue were a tired version of the pistons. sure they got rest at the end of the seasn but it wasent enough. the Cavs and the Heat didnt push themselfs nearly as hard as the pistons during the regular season and thats why they lost to the heat and should have lost to the Cavs. that is also why the mavricks are going to lose. because they pushed them selfs too hard in the season. I’m not gonna lie I hate the heat I hate the way shaq fouls every time he goes to the basket I hate how every time wade goes for the shot he falls no matter who gaurds him (even if nobodys there he falls) but the heat have coasted through the playoffs the mavricks have grinded through. I have already seen a vision of mark cuban in my dreams througing his hands up in disgust. not what I want to see but a vision of the future. Its a sad truth but the mavricks are gonna get walked on in the finals. please again give me what you think at pistons363@yahoo.com but I goota finsh this paper so I dont fail the egith grade so Peace

    the majority of the US thinks the Heat will win the series. Go to nba.com and go to the poll on the right.
