MyDyess Has His Ways

by | May 17, 2007 | 76 comments

I know most of The Pistons are very superstitious, but Antonio McDyess sure has his ways of doing things. ABC aired a piece on Dyess before Sunday’s game to show just how superstitious he is.

    I heard about that time when he had to go and change back into his street clothes because he messed up his routine and I just about laughed my ass off. To be that superstitious is crazy to me but if he believes that’s what helps him, by all means, do it! We need him!

    5 1/2 hours ’til game time…!

    I am guessing that there are some players that before games think about nothing but the game. I think he is the exact opposite. Like he said at the end there. All these superstitions help keep his mind on other things than the game. Well that is my take on it anyway.

    The Pistons better come out with some energy and some emotion. When they are fired up, they hit their shots. That’s why I can’t believe after Sheed got t’d up the other night he didn’t take over like he usually does. Like many, many people have said I hope they stay away from the zone as much as possible. The bulls are just hitting shots over it. They only have to win 1 more game. They HAD 4 chances to do it. Now they only have 2. Let’s get it done tonight.

    GO PISTONS!!

    p.s. am I the only who has to enter the word verification a few times before it will accept it??

    The refs def. suck this game
    43 – 48 at the half.
    God, we better put them away tonight! This is becoming ridiculous.

    There has been quite a few terrible calls. The first quarter was great. The second quarter was very mediocre. Good news the bulls don’t look like they did tuesday. They aren’t hitting the shots like they were. But the fouls are killing us. I am convinced there is a vindetta against Sheed by the refs. Every time he is near the ball and there is a close call is goes against him. Like when the ball CLEARLY went off of pete maravich…errrr I mean P.J. Brown. The ref made a really really bad call there. I hope the refs get their act together for the second half and let the play decide the game.

    On a side note I am glad that channel 20 is broadcasting in HD tonight.

    I swear every F**king ball that goes out of bounds goes the bulls way. PJ Brown is playing out of his mind. I can’t handle this anymore. I couldn’t imagaine how good we would be if we got calls. We would win every game by 20. My ulcer is acting up LAter.

    I’m not disappointed by the pistons being down by 5 @ the half. Their defense is looking a lot better tonight !! I just wish they would focus more on getting points in the paint than trying to shoot a 3-pointer all the time. Lets hope that they can get it done tonight & tame these bulls !

    Go Pistons

    I’m really glad I’m not the only one who thinks the refs are bad tonight. I mean, I usually never ever blame officials on a Detroit loss but this game I feel like almost every call is bad. I was really mad when Chauncey fouled somebody so they couldn’t get a layup or a dunk. I’d rather he just let the other player ’cause we don’t need Chauncey getting into foul trouble. How many does he have? 2?

    Ahhhhh, this is terrible, I just want to vent. The Pistons say they aren’t playing with passion for the last couple games, but even now..we’re still down at the half. I don’t know what is up with team, but the Pistons are the only thing keeping me interested in the NBA at this point thanks to the dictator known as David Stern…however even my interest is begining to wane…these pistons are hard to cheer for ๐Ÿ™

    If they were calling C-Webb for those, we’d be in foul trouble with 10 minutes to go in EVERY quarter! That’s the ONLY thing they’re allowing Detroit to do! The refs are really starting to piss me off.

    I know he is like 180 years old but why is PJ not playing? He was the hot man for the bulls in the first half. Noone else on the bulls have even been close.

    I don’t get TV20. I got it last year (or whatever the local channel was called last year) but not this one. Trust me, if I had it, I would not be watching ESPN, listening to Hubie praise the Bulls.

    Did anyone catch Scott Skiles slipping Mr. Salvatore a hundie before the tip off?? Because if he did, it didn’t help out much in the end. MAN I AM SOOOOOOO HAPPY TONIGHT. Out of all the playoffs games that I have watched this year tonight I would say I was the loudest. My neighbors were probably getting upset at me. Unless they were watching the game and knew why I was flipping out.

    Reply
  55. Amanda

    And now Skiles is saying his team let up. lol No, no. They ain’t Detroit.

    I don’t know how many of you were watching on ESPN, but when the game was over, some lady interviewed Sheed at the scorers table and a whole bunch of kids behind him were pointing at him and saying he sucks and Detroit sucks and stuff. lol

    lol I just heard SKiles say he wants to give Detroit credit but not too much credit until he reviews tape. Oh goodness!

    Maybe it’s just me but tonights game was almost exactly how I pictured every game was going to be like….before the series began that is. The first 3 games were definitely a surprise to me. I think it made everyone discount the bulls. But they proved they are a decent team. But this was a good hard fought win. I don’t think they will get much love from ESPN and all the defensive basketball haters out there, but who cares right?!?!? Pistons win that’s all tha matters.

    my boss went a around and out a penny on everything in my office and I told him that if they loss it was hhis fault since I do not beat or out money on basketball and well I think that the pennys we lucky. Well no the pistons are just a good team. I knew they would win but I was a little bit on my seat. I didn;t get to watch it but will catch it on nba tv later. Watching the press conf right now and tay is talking he is such a respectfull guy. I liked his reply to gaurding James he said it was direspect to the nets and I have heard him say things like that before he is such a great person.

    Yeah, Tayshaun answered that question like a true professional. And I loved the dude’s accent that asked about guarding James.

    Tayshaun also said he has been battling a stomach virus these past few days. Did anybody know about this? I know it’s news to me.

    Anyway, absolutely LOVED the game tonight! The only thing that could have made it better would have been a Flip dunk on Kirk “The Groin Jabbing” Hinrich. lol

    This was a crazy game by far.. SHEED was amazing and in my book he scored 20 points cause those were the two worst calls I’ve ever seen in my life! The refs pissed me the hell off!!

    Reply
  67. Amanda

    I think the refs made this game a lot closer than it should have been but kudos to the Pistons for not getting into it with the refs. ‘Sheed’s tech wasn’t deserved in my opinion because all he did was have a little initial reaction to a call which is something the officals are supposed to allow. But, hey, it’s ‘Sheed and refs just don’t like him. That’s 4 techs for our favorite Wallace which wouldn’t really concern me accept for the fact that there is a big possibily of playing Cleveland next series and we all know about the bad blood that exists between Detroit and that team.

    love the pics amanada. I love how tayshuan has stepped it up this series. He has been taking the ball up the court a lot even when chuncey has been on the court.
    He had a few talks with sheed when sheed could have had a few techs. I really think sheeds tech was called for and what ever tay said to him he didn;t look happy but he did settle right down. I love how tay has become a leader and how well he plays in the play offs.

    I am watching the game right now on raptors tv cause i couldn’t watch it earlier and they said webber was yellowing from the sidelines last game you are not going to take my ring from me, so funny.

    well the games almost over and I think the pistons played this game very well lets keep it up next series.
